Charming Bergen - Bergen
Bergen was founded in 1070, with Bryggen as the embarkation point. Until the 1830s Bergen was actually the largest city in Norway. It still bears many of these characteristics, although you’ll also find plenty of small-town charm.
Spend some time exploring Bergen before your voyage. In the afternoon you’ll board Hurtigruten, and the ship will set sail to the Hjeltefjord. Take the evening to relax, either out on deck or in the panorama lounge, while we slowly cruise by the coastal and fjord landscape.
Architectural pearls and fjords - Florø - Molde
If you get up early you’ll have a chance to take in the magnificent view of the idyllic Nordfjord. After sailing by West Cape we are out into open sea. And then we dock at Ålesund. The town is best known for its art nouveau architecture, which is characterised by an abundance of spires, towers and elaborate ornaments.
In summer, we sail into the Geirangerfjord, and on the way in we pass cliffs towering 800 metres high with impressive waterfalls. In the autumn, we explore the hidden natural wonder that is the Hjørundfjord, which is surrounded by the Sunnmørsalpene mountain range’s wild and majestic peaks. Here you’ll find unspoiled nature, steep mountain sides, green meadows, secluded mountain farms and tiny hamlets waiting to be discovered.
The next stop is “Rosenes by” [Town of Roses], Molde. The view over the Romsdal Fjord and Romsdal mountaintops has made the town famous. In winter and in spring, we dock long enough for you to explore the town on your own. In the evening, you can see Kvitholmen’s lighthouse to the west and the impressive Atlantic Road to the east.
Medieval Trondheim - Kristiandsund - Rørvik
Trondheim is an incredibly beautiful city. It was Norway’s first capital and was founded by the Viking king Olav Tryggvason in the year 997. The architecture is special and the atmosphere mythical. The narrow medieval passageways are still in place, and create a stark contrast to the broad streets. Explore the city’s secrets on your own by taking a walking tour through the charming streets.
Take in the view from Gamle Bybro, which was built in 1861, and the charming wooden houses in Bakklandet. Nidaros Cathedral is also well worth a visit. Work on the cathedral began in 1070 and it is built on the site of Olaf II’s grave. Today it is Norway’s largest gothic building. You’ll be enthralled by the incredible, richly-detailed dome and the fantastic works of art.
When you’re back on board we’ll sail out through the Trondheim Fjord. From the deck you’ll see Munkholmen, Kjeungskjær lighthouse and countless islets and islands. After cruising through the narrow Stokksund sound, we cross open sea while sailing towards Vikna, where over 6000 islets, small islands and skerries dot the route. After dinner, we dock in the charming town of Rørvik, where we meet one of the southbound Hurtigruten ships.
Arctic Circle and Lofoten - Brønnøysund - Svolvær
If you’re an early bird you should be out on deck around 7 am. This is when we cross the Arctic Circle which is at 66°33’N and marks the invisible border of the Arctic. The waters north of the circle have 24-hour daylight in the summer.
In the winter you have a much greater chance of seeing the magical northern lights north of this latitude. When we pass the little island Vikingen, you’ll see the arctic circle globe. The crew will ensure the event is marked with an informal arctic circle christening out on deck later in the day. Before we arrive in Ørnes, you may see Norway’s second largest glacier, Svartisen, glittering to the east.
The view over Saltfjord, just south of Bodø, is nothing less than spectacular. Here you’ll also see Saltstraumen, the world’s most powerful tidal current. You’ll have some time to explore Bodø before we cross the sea to Lofoten. The voyage ends in Svolvær, Lofoten’s capital. We hope you’ll take some time to explore Lofoten’s beautiful coastal gems before the return journey.
