After opening an Australasia office in Melbourne just last month, Hurtigruten Cruises has announced a strategic partnership with Australasian travel wholesaler Adventure World Travel.

Adventure World Travel creates tailor-made itineraries with a focus on sustainable and responsible tourism.

Access to products/booking system

The partnership gives Adventure World Travel access to Hurtigruten expeditions, including the original Norway coastal voyage, new Expedition Norway cruises and core land-based excursions like ‘Norway in a Nutshell’ and ‘Follow the Lights.’

Adventure World Travel agents will have full access to Hurtigruten’s booking system, offering real time availability and pricing and booking services that will include exclusive offers for Australia and New Zealand.

Perry said Adventure World Travel’s MD Neil Rodgers and his team are professional, thorough and passionate.

Like-minded partners

‘They are like-minded, have a genuine commitment to sustainability and remain customer and trade partner focused,’ Perry said.

Rodgers said Adventure World Travel’s partnership with Hurtigruten will enable it to launch into new destinations.

‘Our brand synergies are entwined with our focus on sustainability and authentic customer experience,’ he said.
