Hurtigruten traces the dramatic Norwegian coastline from Bergen and the southern fjords, up across the Arctic Circle, all the way to Lofoten and the top end of Europe. It is the name of the route rather than one of the collection of ships that ply it year round. On a winter voyage, as well as the variety of daytime activities and sights, the northern lights prove a big attraction - huge vistas providing the canvas for often spectacular displays.
Who for? Northern lights enthusiasts and those who enjoy sea and coastal scenery

On a Hurtigruten coastal voyage you are always in eyeshot of the remarkable scenery. More than just a means of travel for the locals between remote ports, this route and the ships that sail up and down it year round, have become a popular way for visitors to explore the region. Hurtigruten ships are working vessels which call in at different ports throughout the day and night, transporting goods and passengers. Choose to cover the full route or just a section and enjoy a traditional, informal and very different kind of cruising.
The Hurtigruten fleet consists of 13 ships, with 11 operating on these winter voyages. The ships vary from older, beautifully authentic vessels to larger and more modern ships. Although cabins have private facilities, berths may be either twin or bunk. You will be advised the name of the ship at the time of booking, however this will be subject to change. The standard of onboard accommodation and facilities is consistently high and the atmosphere informal and relaxed. The large, comfortable lounges offer excellent views through enormous windows and there is ample deck space so whether you're admiring beautiful untouched scenery by day, or watching surreal dancing lights at night, you'll have plenty of room to manoeuvre.
An excellent choice of shore excursions is available. Although they can be booked onboard, it is strongly advisable to do this at the time of booking your holiday to ensure availability.
