Named after the northern region of Norway, most of which lies north of the Arctic Circle.
MS Nordnorge has her own on-board Expedition Team and 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
MS Nordnorge was refurbished in 2016 and now features a modern, Arctic-inspired interior. On board are three different restaurants, the Multe bakery and ice cream bar, a sauna and fitness room. Out on deck you can enjoy the view from one of Hurtigrutens two Jacuzzis. There is a comfortable bar at the front of the ship where you can enjoy a nice traditional drink. The vessel also has a large compass area were you find the reception, a tour guide, conference room and shop.
Relax and unwind in one of two Jacuzzis or keep active on board MS Nordnorge in the fitness room.
The ever-changing landscape is the special allure on board MS Nordnorge, which explains why the Explorer Lounge and Panorama Bar is one of the most popular public areas on the ship. With its panoramic views and comfortable 360-degree swivel chairs, it is the perfect spot for raising your binoculars and scanning the passing fjords and islands. The expedition and information team are always on hand, bringing you the most memorable and exciting excursions at each port.
