Sail on a scenic Hurtigruten cruise in Norway

The dramatic 2,000-kilometre coastline of Norway is one of Europe’s great attractions, and for more than 100 years the popular Hurtigruten coastal ferry has been offering travellers a unique combo of Norwegian history, culture and world-famous scenery. In fact, Lonely Planet called the Hurtigruten cruise along the craggy, fjord-studded west coast of Norway "The World's Most Beautiful Voyage". So it’s no surprise that Hurtigruten coastal voyages in Norway are among the most popular tours offered by Nordic Visitor.

Highlights of a Hurtigruten cruise in Norway

The classic Hurtigruten coastal voyage runs south to north (and vice versa) between the charming city of Bergen and the arctic town of Kirkenes. It runs year-round, making it ideal to experience the midnight sun in summer or to enjoy Hurtigruten northern lights cruises in winter.

A one-way Hurtigruten Norway cruise covering the full route takes around 6 or 7 days and the voyage stops at 34 ports of call, with a variety of shore excursions on offer.



Here are just a few of the things you can experience on coastal Hurtigruten cruises in Norway:

  • Walk around the city of Ålesund and admire its renowned Art Nouveau architecture.
  • Sail up the Geirangerfjord, past tumbling waterfalls like the Seven Sisters and Bridal Veil.
  • Stroll past the colourful wharf houses in Trondheim, the original capital of Norway until the 16th century.
  • See the beautiful Lofoten Islands, well known for its jagged mountains and quaint fishing villages.
  • Visit lively Tromsø, "The Paris of the North”, where many famous 19th-century arctic expeditions began.
  • Cruise along the steep bird cliffs to the scenic North Cape, the northernmost point of mainland Europe.

Other Hurtigruten excursions you could enjoy include whale watching boat trips, coach tours to the Atlantic Ocean Road and more. You also have your choice of several cabin options when booking a Nordic Visitor Hurtigruten tour. What’s more, Hurtigruten ferries are equipped with many of the amenities of larger cruise ships, such as outdoor hot tubs, a fitness room, different dining rooms and lovely indoor and outdoor viewing decks for bird watching.

Customisations for a Hurtigruten coastal voyage

The best thing about Hurtigruten cruises in Norway is the hop-on, hop-off style of travel. You can opt to embark and disembark on a Hurtigruten ferry ship at ports other than Bergen or Kirkenes, so you can enjoy a shorter cruise in addition to travel by car or train.

A hugely popular addition to Hurtigruten cruises in Norway is the Norway in a Nutshell® train journey, which connects Oslo to Bergen via the Flåm Railway. Allocate at least 8 days in Norway if you wish to enjoy a train-cruise combo trip. We can also customise any itinerary to include trips to neighbouring Scandinavian countries.

  • Hurtigruten was founded in 1893 to transport cargo, mail and passengers between coastal towns
  • In the old days, Norway’s fjords made road travel difficult and sometimes dangerous
  • Hurtigruten means “fast route” in Norwegian
  • Today the cruise line is considered a leader in the “slow travel” movement

An absolutely fantastic trip to a beautiful country.

Richard, United Kingdom

Norway in a Nutshell® - Classic, July 2023

Excellent tour

The service and communication before the trip was very good, and the tour itself excellent. Hotels were very well-chosen. They were a good standard and ideally situated.

Gary, United States

Scenic Norway - Express, July 2023

Exceeded expectations

Dana, United States

Express Norway, July 2023

Great way to plan a vacation

Nordic Visitor is a great way to plan a vacation to Scandinavia. They offer multiple options in each country, then you can customise as you want by adding a day in a city, or adding excursions. They know all the best options to make available and do a thorough job of preparing every leg of your journey. It was great to have a personal driver meet us at the airport to take us to our hotel in Oslo. Saved lots of concern about navigating public transportation in another country.

Mary, United States

Norway Road Trip - Classic, July 2023

Amazing

This was the most amazing opportunity to experience different parts of the country. We experienced "different seasons" with the changing climate throughout the locations travelled. We experienced the different cultures of city vs. country living. We were able to talk with locals and learn about the history of Norway. It was a packed holiday between the driving, tours and exploring, but we felt we got a full immersive opportunity by choosing this package.

Aaron, United States

Best of the Norwegian Fjords – Express, July 2023

The itinerary was perfect

We booked the Best of Norway Fjords Express Tour. The itinerary was perfect and well-organised. All accommodations were very close to train stations or cruise ports. The transfers involved minimal wait time between bus and train on the same day. The accommodation, transportation and tours would have been very difficult to book on our own. Nordic Visitor did a great job putting everything together.

Diane, United States

Wonders of the Norwegian Fjords, July 2023

The trip of a lifetime!

This was the trip of a lifetime. Norway is unbelievably beautiful and this trip with Nordic Visitor was amazing! The fjords were spectacular and the Norwegian towns and landscapes were charming. Our small group of 14 (plus the driver and tour guide) was perfect. Our group included people from the USA, Hong Kong and Australia, and all were very friendly and interesting. A perfect tour!

Barry, United States

Best of the Norwegian Fjords – Express, July 2023

Well-organised

From start to finish, well organised. Good communication pre-travel and all reservations on the trip went smoothly.
