Traena, Norway

Traena, Norway Tue 20 Sep 2022

Traena, Norway

In the morning, sail along the coast of Helgeland with nothing but sky and sea ahead. In the distance, you can see mountains rise from the horizon. This is Træna, an archipelago of over 400 islands and islets right on the Arctic Circle. Enjoy a scenic walk around the village of Husøya where most of Træna’s 454 inhabitants live.

Reine, Norway

Reine, Norway Wed 21 Sep 2022

Reine, Norway

Today land 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. From Reine, sail to Trollfjord, a narrow waterway where vertical mountain walls loom above you. you might get to experience the ship ‘threading the needle’ as it sails into the fjord so close to the cliff walls that you’ll feel you could reach out and brush them.

Bjornoya, Norway Sat 24 Sep 2022

About midway between the Norwegian mainland and Spitsbergen, you arrive at Bjørnøya, or Bear Island in English. Don’t get too excited about its name though. The island is more renown for the birdlife that flock here over summer rather than any sightings of polar bears.

Hornsund, Spitsbergen Island

Today you will get to explore the wonderfully varied landscape and geology of Hornsund, which is a part of the South Spitsbergen National Park.

Isfjord

Isfjord (Svalbard), Norway Mon 26 Sep 2022

Isfjord

Get into explorer mode, because today you sail into the remarkable Isfjord, the second-longest fjord in Svalbard.

Prepare to see immense U-shaped valleys which were carved out of the mountains by giant glaciers some ten thousand years ago.

Bellsund

Bellsund (Svalbard), Norway Tue 27 Sep 2022

Bellsund

Not to be confused with its narrower cousin, the fjord, Bellsund is a 20 km long sound. Sounds tend to be wider than fjords and are usually formed by the flooding of river valleys.

Seeing the sound’s snow-capped mountains, glaciers and striking geological formations, you’d be forgiven to think that the name ‘Bellsund’ means ‘beautiful sound’. However, Bellsund actually borrows its name from the bell-shaped mountain Klokkefjellet at the mouth of the sound.

Lysefjord, Norway

Lysefjord, Norway Tue 04 Oct 2022

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.
