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 Nordlys is named after the spectacular natural phenomena visible in these waters between October and March. Nordlys, meaning the Northern Lights (or Aurora Borealis), which appear in the sky of the Northern Hemisphere as green and sometimes red flaming “waves” and will leave you with memories that will last forever. MS Nordlys was built in 1994 and its art, décor and colours are all inspired by the Northern Lights phenomenon. With her light and delicate interior, Norwegian artists have created a unique and distinct environment on board. Passengers are encouraged to relax in the ship’s elegant maritime atmosphere, countless lounges and comfortable reclining chairs.

MS Nordlys


Launched: January 1994 | Occupancy: 590 passengers
