Northern lights cruises with Hurtigruten

Hurtigruten is often referred to as the world's most beautiful sea voyage. A cruise with Hurtigruten is an attraction in itself; in the winter season you will cruise by landscape covered in pure white snow; the air is fresh and crisp; the arctic light of blue, icy white, fiery yellow is quite magical. Enjoy delicious food made from local ingredients, keep a lookout for the northern lights as you relax in a hot outdoor jacuzzi and join optional shore excursions.

The Hurtigruten cruise connects several exciting winter locations along the Norwegian coast, such as Tromsø, Kongsfjord and Kirkenes. These are all located above the Arctic Circle and offer excellent chances of spotting the northern lights.

A popular option is to combine a northern lights trip with a tour to the spectacular Norwegian fjords. This is possible by going on a fjord tour followed by Hurtigruten's northbound cruise from Bergen, the gateway to the fjords, to Kirkenes, located by the Russian border in the north of Norway. As an alternative, you can book a flight to Northern Norway after visiting the fjords in Southern Norway.
