A life changing experience on an excellent ship

I have used Hurtigruten once before about 10 years ago (classic passage North) and enjoyed it. I chose this trip on the Fram based on that experience, reputation and price - but primarily the itinerary, which gave ...

BEWARE Hurtigruten- If Antarctics is your goal, don't get taken in by their lies

Bottom line up front: Avoid Hurtigruten Cruises (and any of their ships including the Midnatsol) if your aim is to go on a "once in a lifetime" type journey. You will probably be disappointed. We traveled on ...
