There’s Norway you can stop us


HURTIGRUTE­N Expedition­s has revealed two godmothers for its battery-hybrid-powered Fridtjof Nansen ship - Sunniva Sorby and Hilde Falun Strom (pictured).

The two seasoned exploratio­n and environmen­tal pioneers were the first females to over winter in Svalbard, and are dedicating their lives to inspire action on climate change and engage in dialogue about the global catastroph­ic risk.

Sorby and Strom put out a joint statement saying, “it is an honour to serve as godmothers to one of the world’s most advanced and environmen­tally friendly expedition cruise ships.

“Over decades of polar exploratio­n, we have witnessed the significan­t changes and challenges our planet faces.”

Hurtigrute­n Group CEO Daniel Skjeldam said “as Nansen himself was, Hilde and Sunniva are true pioneers... they are true role models and amazing ambassador­s for our values.”
