For travellers who seek the finest that the world has to offer

Discover the magic of Norway onboard The Original Coastal Express

Hurtigruten Norwegian Coastal Express has sailed the Norwegian coast since 1893, faithfully serving communities and showing international guests our home for almost 130 years. Experience the authentic, everyday life of the coast.

The Classic Round Trip Voyage

Travels from the southern city of Bergen, across the Arctic Circle, up to Kirkenes, and back. It’s 12 days, 34 coastal communities and 2,500 nautical miles of some of the most stunning scenery you’ve ever seen.

Norway’s world-famous fjords will be on full display, dotted with farms and charming fishing villages. Admire the mountains and myths of the Helgeland Coast and brace yourself for the sheer beauty of the idyllic Lofoten and Vesterålen islands.

The Experience

The comfortable ships are small enough to manoeuvre through fjords, close to the coastline, giving you exceptional views of the passing landscapes. With a couple of hundred passengers at most, your ship is intimate, the atmosphere informal, and the dress code casual.

Coastal Experts on board will also share their insights of the coast with you, whether about history, culture, science, or photography.

Taste your way along the coast too as a trio of onboard restaurants serve you delicious, seasonal dishes made from locally sourced ingredients; king crab from the Barents Sea, melt-in-your-mouth Lofoten cod, and sophisticated vegan menus that vary each day.

The voyages show you the true Norwegian coast; authentic and pure. You’ll travel aboard ships that have cared for the coast, known and loved by locals and guests alike. Hurtigruten is the Original Norwegian Coastal Express.
