Northern Lights Promise

Winter is perhaps the most incredible time of year to explore the snow-covered landscape of the Norwegian coast – and the best time to experience the aurora borealis – the northern lights – the incredible light show for which the polar night is so famous

A natural phenomena, the northern lights occur when the solar wind is stronger than usual, and electrically charged particles from the sun hurl toward Earth. The particles, electrons, and protons form a magical light when they collide with gases in Earth’s atmosphere. The electromagnetic radiation creates undulating ribbons of light that vary in shape, strength, and color. When the northern lights appear, the polar sky materializes in all its beauty as a canvas of light being pulled across the sky.

Hurtigruten's Northern Lights Promise to You:

We’re so confident that the northern lights will make an appearance during your 12-day roundtrip cruise in Norway that if they don’t, we’ll give you a 6- or 7-day cruise FREE OF CHARGE*.

A Northern Lights Occurrence is defined as a sighting from the ship which is recorded by the ship’s deck officers and which is announced to passengers on board. An occurrence can last anywhere from a few minutes to a matter of hours, and the ship’s decision as to whether the Northern Lights occurred is final.
