{tab Day 1}

Kirkenes

Your adventure starts at the turning point of Hurtigruten. As the ship begins its voyage south, you can first enjoy a wonderful lunch followed by views of arctic wilderness from deck or the panorama lounge. There will be a presentation on Pomor trade history in the winter season. In the afternoon the ship docks in Vardø, Norway’s easternmost port. Weather permitting, we may invite you to experience ice bathing in the Arctic Ocean during winter season. On-board there will also be a presentation of "Life in the sea" in spring. In winter, local Arctic divers will bring displays & give a lecture out on deck about life in the ocean. We continue along the Varanger peninsula to Båtsfjord before reaching Berlevåg in the evening.

{tab Day 2}

Mehamn - Tromsø

In the middle of the night we dock at Mehamn, where you can join an unforgettable snowmobile trip through one of Europe’s most extreme & exciting natural areas in winter. In Honningsvåg you can enjoy an excursion & breakfast at the North Cape while discovering hidden parts of Finnmark. Before stopping in Hammerfest, you can enjoy an ‘energy coffee’ & a short introduction to ‘Melkøya - The northernmost natural gas terminal’ on-board. In autumn we invite you to taste dried reindeer meat on deck. In Hammerfest you can participate on a mountain hike or join a city guiding & see the UNESCO-listed Meridian Column, erected in 1854 to commemorate the first precise measurement of the globe. We continue south to Øksfjord. In winter our crew will teach you how to tie maritime knots on deck. After crossing open water, we will make a brief stop at the old trading post of Skjervøy before sailing through the beautiful Lyngenfjord in spring. Surrounded by the snowy peaks of the Lyngen Alps, we may be visited by a local fisherman & enjoy a taste of local freshly caught prawns. We dock in Tromsø -  “the gateway to the Arctic” -  just in time to enjoy a midnight concert at the Arctic Cathedral. Alternatively a walk around town will give you the chance to enjoy a local brew in one of Tromsø's many friendly pubs.

{tab Day 3}

Tromsø - Stamsund

We arrive at Harstad this morning, where you can participate in one of the classic entries in Hurtigruten’s excursion programme: A taste of Vesterålen. The Risøyrenna channel is just 7 metres deep, & was made especially for Hurtigruten in the 1920s, providing an "inside route" between Harstad & Sortland. The sand banks are visible through the clear, green water.  Risøyhamn is a small village with only 200 inhabitants. We make a short stop here to deliver passengers, groceries & mail. From this port you can also join in on a spectacular whale-watching experience during wintertime. Then we continue via Sortland to Stokmarknes, where Hurtigruten was founded more than 120 years ago. Continuing south it looks like we are sailing straight into the mountain wall, but the captain finds an opening & takes us through the narrow Raftsund. As a tribute to the fishing history in this region, our chef shows how to fillet the catch of the day on deck in winter. Now we reach the spectacular Trollfjord, only 2 km long & 100 metres wide, with majestic mountains surrounding it. If the weather & time permits it – the captain will take a detour in here. Join a sea eagle excursion to see the king of birds up close.  Reaching Svolvær, you can choose from several excursion options in summer, spring & winter. From Svolvær we continue on to Stamsund, where the majestic peaks of the huge Lofoten wall can be viewed. We leave the islands during the evening & set course for the mainland.

{tab Day 4}

Bodø - Rørvik

Crossing the Arctic Circle at 66°33’N is an important ‘rite of passage’ today. We celebrate this with a taste of our Arctic traditions out on deck. Another highlight is sailing past the Seven Sisters mountain range. All seven mountains are between 900 & 1,100 metres high, & it is easy to understand why these ‘ladies’ have inspired ancient myths. We take a short stop in Nesna, an idyllic old trading post before moving on to Sandnessjøen. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Vega Islands is close to our call in Sandnessjøen & can be visited on an optional excursion during summer. In Brønnøysund we offer an excursion to the Norwegian Aquaculture Centre.

{tab Day 5}

Trondheim - Ålesund

Today gives you another opportunity to explore the city of Trondheim. The city walk is a journey through its 1,000-year history. Back on-board, the ship heads out of the majestic Trondheimsfjord, 170km long & up to 25km wide. Like all other Norwegian fjords it is deep, reaching 577m at the deepest. As we sail along the coast you’ll realise the importance of fish to Norwegian coastal communities. Kristiansund’s location has formed the basis for a wealth of opportunities in the fishing, shipbuilding & oil industries. The town reigns as Norway’s ‘cured cod capital’ because of its long time export of salted dry fish. Here you can join a trip to the Atlantic Road, one of Norway’s most visited tourist destinations. As we cross the open sea to Molde, known as the ‘city of roses’, you will notice the steep, grey, pointed peaks of the Romsdal Alps.

{tab Day 6}

Bergen

During the night, the ship will call at Ålesund, Torvik & Måløy as the world’s most beautiful voyage starts to draw to a close. But before we dock in Bergen there are still a few nautical miles of fascinating scenery ahead of us, such as the picturesque Nordfjord below the enormous Jostedal glacier. We will make a call at Florø, a modern town representing the Sogn og Fjordane region’s oldest & Norway’s most western town. A few nautical miles south of Florø we navigate the estuary of the mighty Sognefjord. You also get the best views of the archipelago en route before you finally disembark in Bergen.
