Awaken the explorer in you on this adventure from the Arctic wilderness of northern Norway to the world's most beautiful islands and fjords along the coast. Explore the rugged coastline as you go face-to-face with natural wonders and experience thrilling excursions.

OVERVIEW

The Norwegian coast is one of the most exciting and varied adventure destinations in the world, with its stirring and varied landscapes. A voyage with Hurtigruten lets you explore highlights of this epic coast, and take you up close to the culture and the everyday life of people living here. Have breakfast at the North Cape, challenge yourself on a mountainhike in Hammerfest or Lofoten, explore the wilderness on a snowmobile or on a dog sledge, enjoy a hi-octane RIB adventure or discover cultural highlights.

HIGHLIGHTS
  • Experience magical Lofoten during the daytime
  • See the magnificent coast of Helgeland during the daytime
  • Enjoy breakfast on the North Cape (not during winter voyages)
  • Stay active and adventurous by joining our exciting sea- and land-based excursions
North to South – A Beautiful Adventure

The northern shores of Norway offer spectacular scenery, including Finnmark’s wide plains, the North Cape and the Vesterålen and Lofoten Islands. As you cross the Polar Circle, the climate and landscapes become milder, but none the less impressive. On this southbound trip, we stop in Harstad, Lofoten and Trollfjorden during daytime. From there, we sail south along the Helgeland coast, passing the Seven Sisters mountains. You will continue to be impressed, when we sail through the overwhelmingly beautiful, unspoilt west coast landscapes.

Authentic Norway

Visiting 34 ports along the route is a great way to experience genuine Norway. See small settlements with less than 200 inhabitants and the big cities teeming with life. As you reach Bergen, the last port of call, you have completed a journey that has taken place along the Norwegian coast every day for the last 120 years. How’s that for authentic?

Natural Wonders During All Seasons

No matter what time of the year you travel, you will be surrounded by beautiful nature wherever you turn. Still, every season has its own charm.

Hopefully you will see the mesmerising Northern Lights when sailing with Hurtigruten during wintertime. Above the Artic Circle, Hurtigruten will provide the best chances of experiencing the magic colour show as it changes from light green to dark purple, flickering silently across the Arctic sky.

Traveling between Kirkenes and Bergen during spring is an awesome experience. The contrast between northern and southern Norway is huge. Being above the Arctic circle, it is usually full winter and from mid May the midnight sun offers 24 hours of sun. As you sail south from Trondheim to Bergen, you will experience lush and green landscape in blossom in close to summer temperatures. It is just like experiencing three seasons in one journey. An absolute highlight on this trip during springtime, is the idyllic sailing through Lyngenfjorden.

Summer means Midnight Sun, which is literally sunshine at midnight. This is a natural phenomenon you can only experience north of the Arctic Circle. This means you have a chance to see all northern destinations in daylight. Daylight in the middle of the night is an intense experience, and you may have to force yourself to go to bed. Many of the 34 ports we call on along the route, are small ports that other cruise liners do not visit. With Hurtigruten, you will see more of Norway and experience more of its culture and traditions.

As summer fades, the first cool evenings summon the colors of autumn. The fresh and clear coastal air enhances the intense red and yellow that fills mountainsides, hilltops and woods. From the deck, you may see the sharp profiles of the highest peaks sprinkled with the first snow, against the background of an ice blue sky. Gradually, the evenings get darker and the days shorter. With a bit of luck, the Northern Lights will appear and give you a magical experience.

No matter which season you choose, a trip from north to south will create memories for life. As we dock in Bergen, you will have experienced a lot in a short amount of time, and you will most definitely long back for this adventure.
