Hurtigruten has launched a virtual reality experience for agents and guests to trial a selection of excursions available on the brand’s Explorer and Coastal voyages.

The VR experience showcases nine unique off-board activities in destinations including the Arctic, Antarctica and coastal Norway, and the content captured via drones and 360 cameras bring the destinations to life.

Guests and agents will find themselves transported to the remote wilderness of Antarctica to kayak amongst icebergs, feel the Arctic wind whilst galloping on horseback across the Norwegian plains or embark on a mountain hike and be mesmerised by the majestic scenery of the Lofoten Islands.

The line's regional sales managers will take the VR experience along with them to meetings with key travel agents across the UK to educate agents on the excursion offering. In addition, a selection of VR headsets will be available on board ships from late summer with expedition teams encouraging guests to learn more about the company's adventures.
