Hurtigruten is a traditional norwegian cruise line. Since 1893 it is active in the mailboat service along the norwegian fjord coast. Every day one of the 11 mailboats starts in Bergen to the 12 day post ship route. Meanwhile Hurtigruten also offers exciting expedition cruises through South America, the Antarctica and lots of other destinations. They always focus on sustainability, that's why the ships all sail with sustainable fuel and they don't want to pollute the environment in which they sail. Rubbish collecting is only one of the interesting shore excursions.
