    Your trip will begin with an included flight from Oslo Gardermoen to Svolvær Airport. We recommend taking a taxi the short distance to your hotel located in the town centre. If you arrive early, we suggest taking a walk to the nearby island of Svinøya for a visit to the Art Museum or a stroll through town for excellent views of Svolvær, the Svolvær Geita, the sea and the surrounding islands.

    Spend the night in Svolvær.

The next leg of your tour, the Hurtigruten Coastal Voyage, begins boarding at 21:00 and departs for its northbound journey at 22:00.

    In the morning you’ll pass the medieval Trondenes Church before calling at Harstad. Afterwards, the ship sails across Vagsfjord and through a magnificent archipelago on its way to port in Tromsø, the largest city in northern Norway. Nicknamed "The Paris of the North”, this lively city was traditionally a popular starting point for Arctic expeditions and hunting ships in the 19th century—a part of history that is still evident here.

After this short stop, the ship navigates east toward the idyllic fishing villages of Kjollefjord, Mehamn and Berlevag.

Reviews

We don’t like to brag, so we’ll let our happy customers do it for us.

All of the arrangements went smoothly

Kolbrun's services were excellent. All of the arrangements went smoothly. When I was running late to catch a ferry to my final destination for that day, Kolbrun solved my problem. The hotel in Balestrand was unique and wonderful; wish I could have stayed a little longer. Through Nordic Visitor, I felt that I was given some of the nicer rooms available at hotels, for example, rooms with good views. This was a big plus in my travel experience.

Second time we choose your firm for our holidays and the result is outstanding

I’m back to work after these last two wonderful weeks in Norway. From beginning till end the trip was a real success.

Let me thank you once again for your contribution in the itinerary of the trip. All hotels were really well located -always in the city centre- and most of them where really nice. The Historic hotels were an experience, good suggestion! As for the weather we really cannot complain as we had sun for nearly 7 days without rain! So finally fantastic holidays! Be sure to count on us as customers of Nordic Visitor in the future, it’s the second time we choose your firm for our holidays and the result is outstanding.
