POLE POSITION

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.

PRIME TIME

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

  • The Northern Lights will usually appear at multiple times and at multiple locations during your voyage with Hurtigruten
  • Onboard announcements ensure you don’t miss a single sighting
  • There are no hidden fees or separate excursions just to see the lights
  • There’s no time limit either, so you can enjoy them to your heart’s content for as often and for as long as they appear.

FRONT-ROW VIEWS

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.

IMMERSIVE ADVENTURE

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

The Ship


MS Nordkapp is named after one of the highlights of the Hurtigruten voyage, the northermost point of mainland Europe, the North Cape (71º N). It has attracted explorers since it was named by Richard Chancellor who was passing the cape in 1553 while searching for a Northeast passage. The ship was built in 1996, and on board you are surrounded by artworks from the renowned Norwegian artist, Karl Erik Harr. MS Nordkapp is part of the ship class built in the 1990s and has been upgraded with junior suites and Jacuzzis. The godmother of MS Nordkapp is Norway’s Queen Sonja.
