Unless you travel with Hurtigruten – the coastal express that traffick the coast from Bergen and points north – in which case you can hop on and hop off as you like. Maybe you’ll want to spend a few extra days someplace along the way? Well, with Hurtigruten, you can.

Cruise ships depart for Norway from many different ports in Europe, making it easy and convenient to get here with minimum hassle and maximum comfort. Of course, you can also choose to fly directly to Norway and start your cruise here.
