The Classic Round Voyage hugs the Norwegian coastline from Bergen up to Kirkenes, where it turns around and starts its journey south back to Bergen. Travelling on a Hurtigruten voyage allows you to explore one of the most picturesque coastlines in the world and enjoy an authentic Norwegian adventure. Weaving through narrow waterways and fjords on small yet comfortable working ships, you will visit off the beaten track towns and villages and try activities that most tourists to Norway never have a chance to experience. Be pulled along the frozen Arctic on a husky sledge, or enjoy a thrilling rib boat ride through the world’s fastest tidal current – there are more than 50 incredible experiences on offer along the way.
Back on-board, you will also enjoy a culinary journey along the coast, with menus not only reflecting the seasons, but the local specialities of the places you are sailing past. Delicacies are sourced from local small-scale producers and suppliers, and seasonal foods are brought fresh onto the ship each day.
