Your journey begins in Bergen. This attractive harbour town was founded by Olav Kyrre almost 950 years ago. Before embarking on your trip with Hurtigruten we highly recommend you explore the city on your own. Bryggen is an UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ll love just wandering around or relaxing in one of the many cafes. You may also like to take the Fløibanen funicular and take in the panorama from Fløyen mountain, visit Fisketorget [fish market] or take the trip up to Ulriken. In the afternoon, you can board the ship.Enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and get to know your fellow passengers while we cruise by the beautiful landscape.

The ship sails northward, past islands and skerries and up to Ålesund. Wonder at the inspiring architecture in Apotekergata and Kongensgate, which are perfect examples of the early 20th century art nouveau style. In summer, we enter the spectacular Geiranger Fjord, which is an UNESCO World Heritage site. Along the way, we pass sheer cliffs towering 800 metres high, and the Seven Sisters waterfall. In the autumn, we sail into the Hjørund Fjord, which is known as one of Norway’s most beautiful fjords. The ship then continues to Molde, which has a breathtaking view over the Romsdalsalpene mountains.

Day 3
Kristiansund – Rørvik
Nidarosdomen, Nidelven and Bakklandet

Trondheim was Norway’s first capital city. Explore the city while roaming the charming streets, sitting by the peaceful harbour or crossing the old Bybro bridge to see the pretty wooden buildings on Bakklandet which are reflected in the Nidelva river. In the afternoon, the ship continues its journey north. Having sailed through the narrow Stokksundet sound, we dock in the delightful Rørvik.

In the morning, we cross the arctic circle. In the early evening, we arrive to the stunning Lofoten archipelago. Here you’ll see small fishing communities which lie hidden between majestic granite cliffs and white sandy beaches. This stretch is ranked as one of the cruise’s major highlights by many of our guests.

Polar history and active outdoor life

Overnight, we sail through the very narrow Raftsundet sound and past Trollfjorden. So you’ll be able to enjoy the sight of a varied coastal landscape, including fields and meadows, pine forests and steep mountain peaks. After a stop in Harstad, we continue via Finnsnes to Tromsø which is where the voyage ends. We encourage you to take some time in Tromsø to explore the town’s polar history, cultural activities and restaurants before you travel home.

The day-by-day programme will give you a few ideas about what you can see and do on your coastal voyage in Norway, but bear in mind that this itinerary is just an indication of what you can experience. After all, this is a sailing where the elements rule and weather conditions might vary, which is why every voyage with Hurtigruten is unique.
