Cruise Inclusions

  • Voyage in cabin category of your choice on a full board basis
  • English speaking Expedition Leader on board

Hurtigruten operates a fleet of custom-built, hybrid vessels combining the attributes of a small cruise ship with the daily duties of transportation for locals and freight. This combination creates a unique blend of travel experiences woven into the rhythms of daily Norwegian coastal life. All ships depart from Bergen, in the South, on a daily schedule and make the full roundtrip up to Kirkenes, in the North, and back again in 11-nights/12-days. Guests can book The Voyage North for 6-nights/7-days, The Voyage South for 5-nights/6-days, The Norwegian Discovery for 10-nights/11-days or The Roundtrip Voyage for 11-nights/12-days. While some stops to the 34 ports are short for loading and unloading vehicles, freight and locals, other visits allow for unique seasonal shore excursions and sightseeing for travelers. Norwegian chefs use locally-sourced and seasonal meats, fish, cheeses and produce supplied along the route. Guests may book accommodations ranging from Inside to Suite category cabins.

Ålesund Walking Tour – 3 Hours


Ålesund differs from most other Norwegian cities with its large concentration of buildings in the Jugend style of architecture. The explanation for this is simple; the town burned to the ground during the Great Fire of 1904. Rebuilding the city took a full three years, aided by numerous local contributions and large donations from the German Kaiser Wilhelm II.
The city planners agreed on consistently using the contemporary style of architecture, Jugend style (also known as Art Nouveau). It is a style characterized by artistic playfulness, fetching inspiration from organic forms and shapes in nature.
This combination of fjords, mountains and a town centre built in so-called art nouveau-style are some of the factors that resulted in Ålesund pinching first place in a survey by the Norwegian daily newspaper Dagbladet. Larger cities like Bergen (second place) and Trondheim (fourth place) – perhaps more famous for their beauty – were not considered to be as scenic as Ålesund when the Norwegians themselves cast their votes.
Walking tour through the winding old city streets, you will learn about the town's historic past. The tour takes in the Art Nouveau houses in the town itself, taking a stroll in the magnificent central district that displays beautiful houses with numerous and elaborate towers, spears and ornaments.
