HX announces new northern Norway itinerary
Pax Global Media

HX has unveiled a new northern Norway itinerary.

Set to launch in January 2026 at the peak of the aurora season, Ultimate Norway – Arctic Expedition Under the Northern Lights will allow travellers to spend seven nights above the Arctic Circle and is inspired by the Norwegian concept of Friluftsliv, or “free air life,” which embodies the value Norwegians place on spending time in nature and the outdoors.

The expedition will take place aboard the MS Spitsbergen, departing from and returning to Tromsø.

It will explore four iconic regions in northern Norway—the Lyngen Alps, Senja, Lofoten and Vesterålen—during 10 scheduled sailings from January to March 2026.

Guests will take part in three bespoke experiences unique to HX, including a bonfire under the polar night, an exclusive evening at the Hurtigruten Museum in Stokmarknes and a traditional Scandinavian sauna session followed by a polar plunge.

The itinerary also includes a variety of activities such as kayaking, whale watching, nature walks, alpine treks, snowshoeing, community visits and ski touring.

The MS Spitsbergen has a capacity of 160 guests and features Scandinavian décor, comfortable cabins, a wealth of public spaces with floor-to-ceiling windows, an observation deck, a science centre and two restaurants.

The all-inclusive adventure offers three daily meals, drinks, coffee, tea and soft drinks available throughout the day.

Guests have access to the sauna, hot tub, fitness centre and a world-leading onboard science centre.

The package also includes gratuities, daily excursions, expedition gear, a water bottle, broadband Wi-Fi and professional photos of the trip taken by the onboard photographer.

With seven days spent entirely above the Arctic Circle and long winter nights with no light pollution, guests can experience the perfect conditions to witness the Northern Lights.

With HX’s Northern Lights Promise, if there is no recorded sighting of the Northern Lights from the ship during the expedition cruise, guests will receive a Future Cruise Credit worth up to 1,200 EUR per person towards a new HX voyage.
