Meet your Expedition Team who will prepare you for exciting adventures ahead

Egersund, Norway

Egersund, Norway ★Christmas Eve★ Sat 24 Dec 2022

Egersund, Norway

Today is Christmas for Norwegians so the town is likely to be quiet, meaning you’ll have it all to yourselves. Bask in the magical atmosphere while admiring the rustic wooden houses and narrow streets of the historic town, decked out in festive decorations, fairy lights, and a Christmas tree in the town square

Fjærland, Norway

Fjærland, Norway ★Christmas Day★ Sun 25 Dec 2022

Fjærland, Norway

This quirky village, home to only 300 residents, has been named the Norwegian Book Town for its 10 second-hand bookshops. On the banks of this pretty village, if weather permits, you’ll have the chance to go on a winter hike or kayak in incredible nature with the Expedition Team on an optional excursion. As you enjoy a delicious meal back on board the ship, you can continue to admire the views as you exit the fjord and rejoin the coastal waters. This will certainly be a Christmas to remember

MS Maud at sea

Cruising the Coastal Inner Route towards the Arctic Mon 26 Dec 2022

MS Maud at sea
Svolvaer, Norway

Svolvær, Lofoten Tue 27 Dec 2022

Svolvaer, Norway

There are only a few places on Earth where you can sail north of the Arctic Circle in wintertime. The Norwegian coast is one of them. The ship will officially cross over the Arctic Circle sometime in the morning. To mark the occasion, in the tradition of Norwegian sailors, you’ll be invited out on deck for a special ceremony

Narvik, Nordland

Narvik, Norway Wed 28 Dec 2022

Narvik, Nordland

If weather allows, ride the cable car to the top of Mount Narvik to see the breathtaking views and twinkling Christmas lights decorating the town or go on optional excursion hikes, snowshoeing or kayaking on the fjord

Alta, Altafjord, Norway

Alta, Norway Thu 29 Dec 2022

Alta, Altafjord, Norway

You’ll arrive here in the early afternoon and plan to stay past midnight to stargaze and watch for the aurora in Alta’s skies. The town is directly beneath the Auroral Oval, a zone known for consistent Northern Lights activity. If the heavens aren’t overcast, and the conditions are right, you might well be in for quite the show...

Tromso night

Tromsø, Norway Fri 30 Dec 2022

Tromso night

The city is especially pretty around Christmas, festooned with lights and decorations. The Arctic Cathedral is one of the most striking landmarks in Tromsø, especially when lit up at night. It features a huge stained-glass window that is well worth seeing up close

Reine, Norway

Reine, Norway ★New Year’s Eve★ Sat 31 Dec 2022

Reine, Norway

It’s New Year’s Eve and you’ll be spending it in the picture perfect fishing village of Reine, in the Lofoten Islands. This is where red-painted, snow-covered rorbuer cling to a string of islands beneath sharp, dark grey granite mountain ranges. The 450-metre tall Reinebringen is one of the most distinctive peaks, particularly dramatic when layered with snow

MS Maud at sea

★Spend New Year’s Day Relaxing at Sea★ Sun 01 Jan 2023

Kalvag, Norway

Kalvåg, Norway Mon 02 Jan 2023

Kalvag, Norway

You will be welcomed to the little fishing village of Kalvåg, far out on the coastline with the open North Sea to the west. Its name literally means ‘Frozen Bay’ in the Old Norse. No other expedition ships visit Kalvåg, so you’ll experience an authentic slice-of-life community who will likely be thrilled to have visitors

Stavanger, Norway

Mosterøy and Klosterøy, Norway Tue 03 Jan 2023

Stavanger, Norway

Today is the last day of your great Norwegian winter exploration. It begins as you arrive at Mosterøy and Klosterøy in the morning, two of the myriad islands that lie around the city of Stavanger

Frequently Asked Questions about Hurtigruten

When can I book shore excursions?

Hurtigruten recommends pre-booking shore excursions. This can be done up to four weeks prior to departure (two weeks if paid by credit card) at the rates presented. Shore excursions are also available to book on board but spaces may be limited. Please note: all excursions booked on board will be charged in Norwegian Kroner.


Is there a dress code on board?

There is no official dress code on board but some guests choose to change to casualwear for dinner. The weather in Norway can vary during the course of each voyage (or even during the day!) so we recommend reading our climate zone packing guide to ensure you’re ready for every possibility.


What cuisine is served on board?

Norwegian cuisine is served on board. Chefs use only the very best locally sourced, seasonal ingredients which are collected from port each day and used to prepare a range of delicious dishes.


Does Hurtigruten cater to allergies, intolerances or specific diets?

Specific diets can be catered for if requested in good time. Passengers on strict diets may find that there is limited choice. A 3-course vegan menu is available in the evenings on voyages of 12-days.


What activities are available on board?

Most Hurtigruten ships along the Norwegian coast have an Expedition Team who undertake special activities on board such as lectures and presentations, on-deck guiding as well as hikes and outdoor activities in many ports. The majority of activities take place both inside the ships and out on deck and are designed around the season you’re sailing in. Hurtigruten aims to get guests closer to unique environments.


What are my payment options on board?

Visa, American Express, MasterCard and Diners Card are all accepted as payment options on board. Norwegian Kroner (NOK) is the on board currency.


Can I do laundry?

Laundry rooms with washing machines, dryers and irons are available on all ships. Tokens can be purchased at reception.


Which languages are spoken on board?

The official languages on board are Norwegian and English, though some service crew also speak German. The majority of shore excursions are guided in two or three languages.


Will I have access to the internet?

Yes, wireless internet is available on board for a small fee, unless already included in your Select or Platinum fare.


What is Hurtigruten’s gratuity policy?

It is not common practice to tip on Hurtigruten ships on the coastal voyage. If you feel that crew members should be rewarded for providing exceptional service, tip boxes are placed in the restaurant together with envelopes.
