FREE TRIP IF THE NORTHERN LIGHTS DON'T APPEAR*
UK'S TOP AGENT FOR HURTIGRUTEN
Where Hurtigruten sails in northern Norway is directly beneath the auroral zone, an area of continuous and consistent aurora activity around the North Pole. Of the 34 ports visited from Bergen in the south to Kirkenes up north, 22 are in the Arctic Circle, giving you plenty of opportunity to see the Northern Lights.
The lights can start to make an appearance as early as September and as late as May, but it is the winter months between October and March when they are most visible, laying claim to the night sky.
WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET
Travelling at sea under the auroral zone means that displays can appear right above the ship. Outdoor observation decks provide a clear line of sight to the sky, and the close-up view avoids the artificial ambient light common on land.
NORWAY’S COASTAL KITCHEN
While your eyes feast on the scenery, your tastebuds will be in for a treat too. Expect sumptuous seafood caught fresh that morning, local fare such as cured lamb from Hellesylt, roast reindeer from Finnmark, homemade cloudberry jam, and ice cream from a Lofoten dairy.
You won’t find cinemas, shopping malls, or cabaret shows on a Hurtigruten ship. Instead, your entertainment is the wide range of seasonal shore excursions that bring you closer to the local culture and wildlife. The winter months feature over 35 optional extras at a supplement such as:
• dog sledding • a Viking feast • snowmobiling • whale watching • a trip to the North Cape • king crab safari • horse riding in Lofoten • guided city tours • mountain hikes
