Hurtigruten has appointed Tom Kerss its chief aurora chaser.

Kerss will act as an onboard expert on designated Hurtigruten voyages, offering insights into the Northern Lights phenomenon.

Kerss, a renowned and experienced expert in the field of astronomy and the Northern Lights, brings a wealth of expertise and passion to the role.

“The Northern Lights is one of nature’s most mesmerizing spectacles,” said Kerss. “I am thrilled to partner with Hurtigruten to pioneer a truly unforgettable experience for their adventurous and knowledge-seeking guests. Together, we will not only witness the Northern Lights but also unravel the secrets and stories behind its beauty and nature, creating cherished memories that will last a lifetime.”

“Norway is undeniably the premier location for experiencing the Northern Lights, and Hurtigruten provides an unparalleled platform for travelers to witness this celestial marvel,” he added. “Teaming up with Hurtigruten amplifies our ability to share the magic of this phenomenon with travelers from around the globe, making unparalleled voyages to witness the astonishing Arctic skies."
