To teach us about sustainable cruising, today we are sitting down with Daniel Skjeldam, CEO of the Hurtigruten Group based in Oslo, Norway. Daniel’s love for travel and sailing began at an early age when his father would take him to the docks in Oslo to see the famous Hurtigruten ships come into port. After serving in the army, Daniel began working for a local airline to make ends meet, and realized he had a strong passion for travel. After several years in the industry and with a huge dose of courage, Daniel approached the Hurtigruten Group’s board and asked to be the CEO. After some deliberation, he was chosen as the company’s CEO and has been leading the charge in green cruising practices for over a decade.
Daniel and I have such a fun and insightful conversation exploring: Why he decided to pursue becoming the CEO of this particular cruising company, why the company made sustainable practices one of their top priorities, innovations his team is leading for sustainable cruising, science that is being performed aboard their ships to learn about the environment (complete with a shoutout to a former guest on the show!), what to look for when booking your own cruise, and so much more!
