Why Cruise in Norway?

Norway makes a perfect cruise destination because you will have the best views of the dramatic coastline from a ship.

 

Distances are long, and the seaway is often the quickest and most pleasant way to get from A to B in this long mountainous country.

 

It is not coincidence the Hurtigruten coastal steamer from Bergen in the South to Kirkenes in the North still is a popular choice and important means of transportation for the locals as well as tourists. This is what makes a holiday on the Hurtigruten something quite different from your usual cruise holiday.

 

Lofoten_beachWhat to See

Whilst the Hurtigruten follows a set route with several stops and shore excursions every day, all year round, the cruise ships coming form the UK and the rest of Europe all follow different itineraries.

 

Most will stop in the historical city of Bergen and sail through the famous Sognefjord and Geirangerfjord.

 

Many take you to Flaam, where you can take a trip on the famous Flaam railway. Olden and the Birksdal glacier is another popular stop.

 

Further North, many dock in cozy Aalesund and historical Trondheim before cruising into the Arctic Circle, the Lofoten Islands, Tromso and the North Cape.

 

The Hurtigruten does not go to Oslo, but some of the international cruises will stop in the Norwegian capital as part of the journey.
