Experience the beauty of the Norwegian Coast

Described as ‘the world’s most beautiful voyage’, a cruise along the Norwegian coast offers unquestionably epic landscapes. Since 1893, Hurtigruten ships have been a hallmark of the Norwegian coast – not surprising then that Hurtigruten means ‘the fast route’ in Norwegian. Hurtigruten operates an all year schedule with departures from Bergen every day, calling at 34 ports up to Kirkenes. There’s the chance to see the Northern Lights in winter months, whereas in summer the Midnight Sun is on display.

Each Hurtigruten cruise ship is slightly different but across the fleet there’s a similar standard of accommodation, which ranges from basic to suites with bay windows on the newest ships. All the ships have décor inspired by the colours of Norway and a restaurant serves a set dinner of fresh, healthy food. There’s a bar and café as well as panoramic lounges for watching the scenery – while for the hardy there are Jacuzzis on deck.

Hurtigruten’s smaller exploration ships venture further afield, exploring the Americas, Antarctica, Iceland, Greenland, Spitsbergen, and more. Two new Hurtigruten hybrid ships, named after Norwegian polar pioneers – MS Roald Amundsen and MS Fridtjof Nansen – have a state-of-the-art hull design.

The ships have large observation platforms for unimpeded views of nature and wildlife; a majority of cabins have their own balcony. There’s a pool deck with infinity pools, Jacuzzis and bars, whilst three restaurants serve cuisine inspired by the destinations. Expedition team members are experts in marine biology, history, geology, ornithology and also photography.
