Hurtigruten’s new Galapagos season includes new itineraries and ‘Buy One, Get One Free’ offer

SEATTLE — Hurtigruten Expeditions has kicked off its most expansive Galapagos season to date with a limited-time ‘Buy One, Get One Free” offer. 

Available from Feb. 1-15, 2023, the offer applies to nearly all departures from March 2023 through the end of the year. In addition, solo travellers will get 50% off a solo sailing when booking.

To sweeten the offer even more, Hurtigruten Expeditions will donate up to US$100,000 to its three local charity partners from the proceeds of its sales. These include the Charles Darwin FoundationGalapagos Conservancy and Fundación de Conservación Jocotoco, all of which are beneficiaries of the Hurtigruten Foundation and committed to conserving and rewilding threatened species in the Galapagos Islands. Together, the groups protect the Galapagos tortoise, whale sharks, Galapagos penguins, pink iguanas, sea lions and hundreds of bird species and endemic flora and fauna.

New this year are the Western LoopNorthern Loop and combined 11-day itinerary, which join Hurtigruten Expeditions’ original Eastern Loop, the company’s first-ever Galapagos itinerary, which launched last year. In total, the cruise line now offers four year-round itineraries, creating 78 opportunities a year for travellers to experience the remote archipelago. 

According to Hurtigruten Expeditions, there’s been a threefold increase of sailings compared to 2022, with departures ranging from 7-11 days onboard the MS Santa Cruz II (maximum capacity 90 guests). Those looking for a longer adventure can extend their trip with a stay in the Ecuadorian cloud forest or the Amazonian rainforest.
