Connecting Norway’s many small towns and islands, MS Kong Harald offers unparalleled access to the country’s varied and spectacular scenery. Photographic snapshots of local life adorn the stairwells and restaurants, reminding guests of the country’s special heritage and folklore.
The present king of Norway, himself a seasoned sailor, gives his name to the recently refurbished MS Kong Harald. Explore the fjord-lined coast of Norway aboard this 590-passenger ship, sailing year-round from Bergen in the south to Kirkenes in the north and back. The ship features a series of luxuriously decorated public rooms, each named after a Norwegian explorer and showcasing some fine examples of Norwegian art.
True to its Norwegian heritage, the cabins are comfortable and tastefully furnished. Enjoy the spectacular views and picturesque landscapes from the comfort of your own cabin, with selected Outside, Arctic Superior Cabin or Suite. Inside cabins are modern and offer separate beds, providing excellent value for money if travelling with a friend.
Experience delicious authentic Norwegian cuisine and eat like a true local with Hurtigruten’s unique dining concept, Norway's Coastal Kitchen. Guaranteeing seasonal, fresh food from the local area, the talented chefs enjoy telling the story of the local area through their delicious dishes. Choose from three restaurants, including the Brygga, with its bistro feel, and Kysten (which translates as "coast") where fine dining and seafood is the focus. Watch the masterful chefs prepare each dish with the open kitchen design.
The ever-changing Norwegian landscape remains the focal point of the voyage. Enjoy the spectacular views from the sun deck or wrap up warm and watch the vast night sky as it stretches above you.
Relax in the Explorer Lounge, with its floor-to-ceiling windows, offering a panorama of the consistently breath-taking scenery that rolls out before the ship. By day, it is the perfect venue for losing yourself in a book or a game of cards while still taking in the scenery. At night, it becomes a favoured hangout, with dimmed lights to ensure guests can keep an eye out for shooting stars or the majestic northern lights. Depending on the itinerary, crew have been known to treat guests to special, traditional ceremonies or dress up and recount mythical stories of the fjords. Memorable and exciting excursions are on offer at each port.
