Hurtigruten’s ‘Camping in Antarctica’ Drives Record Grant Donation

By Cruise Booking Team

Over one million NOK has been distributed through the “Camping in Antarctica” fundraiser by Hurtigruten Foundation.

During the “Camping in Antarctica, An Amundsen Night” experience, Hurtigruten Expeditions announced they would donate 100% of profits to Hurtigruten Foundation. Total funds raised were 371,482.

The foundation selected 14 recipients for its 2023 grants after reviewing 82 applications, and all projects align with its mission to fight climate change.

The Foundation’s record-breaking achievement would not have been possible without our guests’ contributions by paying to camp in Antarctica. The Hurtigruten Foundation is creating more opportunities for guests to participate in scientific research and community engagement to recognize their contributions.

As part of the “Camping in Antarctica” experience, up to 30 places are available per voyage for people to experience camping like the early explorers.

“Travelers want to exercise personal responsibility for the planet through beach cleanups and citizen science projects,” said Lund. In order to sustain nature, wildlife, and the communities in which we operate, we’re developing new ways for guests to participate meaningfully in our Foundation’s efforts.

Several Citizen Science projects were also selected as part of the brand’s Citizen Science program.

“We’re providing grants for Citizen Science projects both to support scientific research organizations and to enable our guests to gather data,” said Lund.
