The Roald Amundsen and Fridtjof Nansen, two battery-hybrid ships of Hurtigruten Expeditions, crossed paths for the first time on August 28, 2023, in the Northwest Passage.
Flags, banners, and warm drinks were served onboard during the meeting of the ships in Cambridge Bay, Canada.
We are celebrating our legacy by gathering here, said Hurtigruten Expeditions’ Group CEO Daniel Skjeldam. “As pioneers of expedition cruising in 1896, we have taken generations of travelers into the unknown.”
During the Fridtjof Nansen’s 27-day voyage westward through the Northwest Passage to Nome, Alaska, and the Roald Amundsen’s 26-day voyage eastward through the Northwest Passage, the two ships met.
I am struck by the remarkable accomplishments of explorers in these cold, remote places over one hundred years ago as I pass Zenith Point. Nevertheless, I am most impressed by the enduring presence of the current occupants who have lived here since the Thule era,” said Captain Raymond Martinsen.
