Hurtigruten adds two British Isles sailings for 2021

Extra departures from Dover on Maud

Hurtigruten adds two British Isles sailings for 2021

Hurtigruten has added two more departures to its itinerary programme out of Dover this summer.

The 15-day itinerary, British Isles: Picturesque Ports, Isolated Islands and Wonderful Wildlife, which visits Iona, Holyhead, the Isles of Scilly and Fowey, will now also be available on July 18 and August 27.

With the additions, Hurtigruten’s ship Maud will operate six departures in total from the British port in 2021.

The ship, which carries nearly 500 passengers, will sail with a team of experts on board to help boost passengers’ knowledge of destinations around the British Isles.

Anthony Daniels, general manager at Hurtigruten UK and EMEA, said: “With so many staycation sailings to choose from, we offer something truly different to British travellers who want adventure, excursions and space.

“We not only have our incredible expedition team to bring the places we venture to, to life, but our small expedition ship Maud can reach destinations the big white ships cannot get to, whilst still offering plenty of space to relax and dine onboard.

“We will create a unique perspective of the British Isles coastline that is hard to match, and we look forward to welcoming our frequent and new guests onboard.”

Maud, previously called Midnatsol, has undergone a period in dry dock during the pandemic.

The ship has sailed expedition voyages to Norway and Antarctica for the line in the past.
