Hurtigruten Cruise Holidays
If you’re not a fan of sandy beaches and soaring temperatures, then a Hurtigruten Cruise is for you. You will be able to explore the splendour of the Norwegian Coast on an unforgettable trip that will see you cross the Arctic Circle into the Land of the Midnight Sun where, if you travel in springtime, you will experience 24 hours of daylight.
On a Hurtigruten Cruise, you can choose to voyage around Norway, Spitsbergen, Greenland, Europe and even Antarctica, which is the only untouched continent in the world and home to some fantastic wildlife that you might be lucky enough to see on your trip. There are 36 departure ports to choose from across Norway, meaning there is something for everyone. Departure ports include Floro, Torvik and Bergen in the south, or Tromso, Finnsnes and Hammerfest in the north.
Hurtigruten has 12 ships in its fleet, each of which offers top class facilities, comfortable accommodation and everything you need for a fantastic break. The ships have been travelling from the Norwegian coast since 1893 and the current fleet is made up of liners built in the late 90s and after the millennium.
The food on a Hurtigruten cruise is top class and chefs make use of only the freshest local produce to create delicious dishes for guests. Diners can go on a culinary trip around Norway, sampling food from its different towns and cities. Baked fillet of trout with root vegetables, a seafood banquet, classic pepper steak with Hasselback potatoes and a Bergen buffet are just some of the meals on offer. After a tasty meal, sit back and relax with a cocktail in one of the gorgeous lounges.
When on a Hurtigruten cruise, you are bound to spend plenty of time on deck as you will want to take in as much of the spectacular scenery as possible. But if you do want to stay indoors, there is plenty by way of entertainment and activities. Relax in a bubbling Jacuzzi or enjoy a work-out in one of the well-equipped gyms on board.
