Hurtigruten is celebrating Singles Day - 11/11 - in 2021 by offering more cruises designed specifically for solo travellers. From 10-14NOV, bookings can be made for single guests with either Hurtigruten Expeditions or Hurtigruten Norwegian Coastal Express without the single supplement fees to destinations such as Antarctica, Central America, the Galápagos, Iceland, Norway, and South America.
“Research has shown us that 45% of solo travellers travel to discover new cultures, and our cruises offer exactly that – a chance to truly learn about the locals, wildlife, and the ecosystems of the destination. Hurtigruten sails to some of the most unique and beautiful destinations in the world, including the Galápagos, Antarctica, and Norway. These are bucket list destinations for most travellers, and also where a lot of single travellers go. Our cruises are designed to provide guests the opportunity to explore and immerse themselves in the places they visit,” said Storm Tussey-Haverly, Interim President, Hurtigruten Americas.
Travel advisors can book solo clients on select cruises without any single supplement fees. Guests looking for an adventure can explore historic cities in Europe; see penguins, seals, and whales during an 18-day cruise to Antarctica; experience the Northern Lights; follow in Charles Darwin’s footsteps exploring the Galápagos; travel along the Norwegian coast; or experience the highlights of South America during an 18-day cruise from Valparaiso in Chile to Costa Rica.
Hurtigruten Expeditions’ cruise ships feature science centers, an onboard science program that guests are encouraged to participate in, and lectures, all to help travellers to develop a deeper understanding of the destinations and regions they visit. Guests can also participate in hands-on experiences, from tracking whales to counting penguins to cleaning beaches along the ships’ route.
Hurtigruten Norwegian Coastal Express enables travellers to get to know Norway and its coastline. The route takes guests to coastal towns and fjords, with a variety of activities – from hikes, to boat tours and horseback riding.
This solo traveller offer is available on select cruises to the Galapagos, Europe, Antarctica, Central America, Iceland, North America, Norway, and South America.
