Really the most beautiful voyage in the world

The relaxed, open Scandinavian atmosphere on board paired with the great service in all areas but above with the grandiose landscape that constantly passing you by made the trip an expierience. The expeditionteam around Heinz with his assitants Eva und Hegge always prepaired us excellently for the next day with their presentations. They brought us closer to Norway in a good mood. Every ...

Friends recommended this voyage, and we loved every minute. Our cabin was comfortable (we're glad we upgraded to one with an outside window), and the three course "fjord to table" meals were exceptional. The scenery is unparalleled, and we liked the fact that this is a "working ship" with many ports of call so we could get on and off often. The Expeditions team were knowledgeable, personable and ...

I have chosen this cruise because I absolutely wanted to see the aurora borealis live and I was very fortunate seeing them on several occasions. The crew always informed us when the lights occurred. Good job well done! Expedition team offered enough and very interesting excursions, some could have been better lead eg the “Art Nouveau Walk” in Alesund, I would give the guide a 4 in a rating from ...

We wanted to get to know the coast of the country of Norway and something about the people. A trip on one of these famous mail boats has always been our dream. The dream began at the airport, with the personal pick-up and ended at the end of the trip with the supervised drive to the airport. We learned a lot from the supervised excursions and the daily excellent lectures on the sections ...

We wanted to see the Northern Lights. There were issues with the weather that meant re-arranging our flights, parts of our trip and changing ships, from the Nord Norge to the Kong Harald. This was all done with great efficiency. On both ships the friendly staff excelled in all areas beyond our expectations. The food was excellent and the ship's were kept immaculately clean. We ...

I live in Sweden, and I was looking for a nothern lights tours. My travel agent was highly recommending Hurtigruten's voyages, and finally, after a couple of cancelations due to pandemic, I went on a sail with MS Kong Harald, from Bergen to Kirkenes and back to Bergen. I booked flights, transfers, full board, coffee/tea, wifi and 6 excursions. And everything went great! The only negative ...

Norway's coast served on a platter

We embarked at Kirkenes and experienced the spectacular voyage from the Arctic to the tempered rainforests in the South. We didn't go on expeditions but left the boat (when in harbour for more that 1 hour) on our own. Interesting how much you can see in such short time. It was announced that there would be lectures about the ocean and the coast on board. There was some, but most was about the ...

Cruise to see Northern Lights and Norwegian coastline This was a Christmas present for my wife who had to cancel due to her sisters bereavement 2 weeks prior to departure. Hurtigruten were most unsympathetic and inflexible, they would not refund the cost, or change names on tickets to allow use by someone else, or defer the dates. In the end to avoid losing all the money I travelled ...

We would not have chosen to cruise Norway in the winter but we were travelling with friends who had done this cruise before and were anxious to do it again. The experience was amazing. You would be disappointed if you were expecting the glitz and glamour of a cruise ship. This is very much a working vessel designed to take and pick up passengers and goods along the Norwegian coast. There is very ...

A magical winter cruise

We wanted to do the Classic Northern Lights cruise - no dressing up for dinner or Captain's table rubbish for us! This was perfect - we took a few excursions - a local brewery, the Russian border, and a vintage tramride - but otherwise we were mooching around little Norweigan ports with all their Xmas lights, chatting to people, and sleeping during the day when it got dark. We had a fab time and ...
