An integral part of Norwegian life since 1893. Still used as a means of transport for locals, Hurtigruten also welcomes travellers who are after a different kind of cruise. Sailing daily from Bergen up through the Arctic Circle to Kirkenes and back, their fleet of modestly-sized ships are capable of getting much closer to the coastline.

With a smaller size ship comes a more intimate experience and unique opportunity to get an authentic glimpse into Norwegian culture, and communities living at the 34 ports Hurtigruten visit.

Named by many as ‘the world’s most beautiful voyage’, the emphasis is on the natural beauty the Norwegian coast provides.
