Many experiences regardless of the season | The world's most beautiful voyage

On this voyage with Hurtigruten you will experience many exciting cities along the beautiful Norwegian coastline. You will experience 34 ports along Norway's coastline covering 2,400 miles. You can travel on all 4 seasons and experience the coastline in a whole new light. The departure time also reflects the current season. This means that the optional excursions as well as the local food and products served on board reflect the season. The classic voyage with Hurtigruten allows you to see and experience the amazing nature that Norway can offer. When crossing the polar circle you can experience the magical northern lights, the midnight sun and enjoy a visit to Norway's former capital, Trondheim. The voyage starts in Bergen from which the course is set towards Kirkenes in the north, after which the boat sails back towards Bergen. Travel period: Daily departure year round in both spring, summer, autumn and winter season

Southbound

You visit the same ports on your way back, as on the northbound voyage, but you arrive at other times of the day.

Day 7: The turning point at Kirkenes and the beginning of the voyage to the south

The view and the sea become more dramatic as we sail towards Kirkenes. Kirkenes is only a few kilometers from the Russian border and the Sami communities in northern Scandinavia. Kirkenes is known as the capital of the Barents region and the harbor to the east. The summer is amazing in Kirkenes with up to 30 degrees of heat and the locals speak Norwegian, Sami, Finnish and Russian, which also reflects the culture of Lapland. On the trip south, along the Norwegian coast, we now visit the ports we visited during the night on our way to the north of the day.
