Explore authentic Norway with Hurtigruten

A Hurtigruten voyage is arguably the best way to experience Norway. Discover fjords, waterways and ports that other ships cannot reach.

No one knows the Norwegian coast like Hurtigruten. The ships of the original Norwegian Coastal Voyage have been carrying local passengers, visitors and freight between cities, towns and hamlets since 1893. 120 years later, Hurtigruten is still an integral part of Norwegian coastal life. One of the fleet’s 11 ships departs Bergen daily, and sail to Kirkenes and back in 12 days. 

Hurtigruten goes deeper into the heart of the spectacular coastal landscape than anyone else; it is an unforgettable experience and the journey of a lifetime.

Friendly and informal

When you step on board, you enter a relaxing environment with like-minded fellow travellers, and you may well find that the friendly atmosphere encourages conversations with the other guests. 

All Hurtigruten ships are equipped with a wide choice of cabins, comfortable panorama lounges and ample deck space with perfect views of the untouched, unmistakably Norwegian coastline. At the same time, each of the 11 ships has its own distinct style and something unique to offer.

Fresh meals with local ingredients

A journey on Hurtigruten is more than a feast for your eyes; it is a mouth-watering adventure for your taste buds too. Norway’s culinary traditions are fresh, distinctive and varied; very much like the coastal landscape itself. Experienced Norwegian chefs prepare inspiring food that ranges from traditional dishes to modern fusions, using local produce from the regions en route. Breakfast buffet, lunch buffet with specialities from the coast and three-course dinners are included in all the classic voyages, and the mealtimes are great occasions to exchange your daily experiences. The restaurants on board are fully licensed.

34 ports of call

Hurtigruten delivers passengers and freight to 34 ports, many of which are less known among tourists. Each port has its own character; some are tranquil hamlets on tiny islands, others bustling towns with fishing, mining or shipbuilding industries. The residents rely on Hurtigruten to bring essential groceries and supplies, and often come out to visit the ships on arrival. 

The sheer variety of sights, sounds, scents and surprises makes the voyage a delight. Explore the smaller ports on foot, by bike (available to rent) or stay on board and watch goods and passengers leave and join the ship. At larger ports or during longer stays, you may wish to join one of the excursions on offer to experience the life, culture and landscape along the coast.

Welcome on board!
