Named after the spectacular Northern Lights, MS Nordlys is a modern expedition ship whose interior reflects the splendour of the enchanting Aurora Borealis.
MS Nordlys is beautifully appointed with light, delicate décor that has been enhanced by Norwegian artists to create a distinct atmosphere on board. The Hurtigruten fleet offers a unique experience, carrying locals to neighbouring ports and towns, alongside passengers looking to enjoy a relaxed and scenic voyage. As an expedition ship, she comes fully equipped with panorama lounge, sun deck, explorer deck, and her own expedition team.
MS Nordlys has her own on-board Expedition Team that serves as a university at sea. Interesting lectures inside as well as out on the sun deck of the ship make this an exciting and educational journey. Topics depend on the season and the waters Hurtigruten sail in. The Expedition Team will host a lecture programme and evening gatherings daily. Out on deck you may participate in live points of interest to learn more about the nature, culture and other phenomena Hurtigruten encounter along the coast. In addition, the Expedition Team will introduce you to the uniquely Norwegian notion of `friluftsliv´, and encourage you take part in `friluftsliv´ hikes and activities during the journey.
