Alaska and British Columbia – Inside Passage, Bears, and Aleutian Islands (Southbound) on MS Roald Amundsen
Starting in the gold-rush town of Nome, we’ll birdwatch on the isolated islands of St. Paul and St. Matthew before visiting bustling Unalaska and the abandoned town of Unga. Look for Bald Eagles in Chignik Bay and brown bears in Katmai National Park. The expedition cruise ends in Vancouver after visiting the Misty Fjords and the mixed heritage towns of Wrangell and Sitka.
In 2019, Hurtigruten added a brand new ship to its fleet: the MS Roald Amundsen. The state of the art vessel features new and environmentally sustainable hybrid technology that will reduce fuel consumption and show the world that hybrid propulsion on large ships is possible.
MS Roald Amundsen is the first of two hybrid ships Hurtigruten will add to its fleet over the next few years. Emissions are cut by sailing with electrical propulsion. Innovative sustainable technology reduces fuel consumption and CO2-emissions on the ships by 20 percent.
Named after the first man to cross Antarctica and reach the South Pole, MS Roald Amundsen leads the way towards an even more sustainable way of traveling. The ship is specially constructed for voyages in polar waters. It serves as a comfortable base camp at sea – bringing adventurers from all over the world to the most spectacular destinations in the most sustainable way.
At Hurtigruten we give you the opportunity to travel with meaning. Building on our explorer heritage dating back to 1893, our explorations are grounded in the likings of people who value learning and personal growth over luxury.
