Itinerary
Click for Dates and Prices Day 1 Kirkenes The voyage south
As we turn south the northbound ports visited by night are now visited during the day. In the afternoon the ship docks in Vardø. Depending on the weather conditions, we invite you to take an ice-dip in the Arctic Ocean!

Day 2 Hammerfest and Tromsø
Before stopping in Hammerfest, you can enjoy an “Energy coffee” and a short introduction to “Melkøya - The northern- most natural gas terminal” on board. Our next major stop will be Tromsø where you have the option to take part in a very special musical experience, the Arctic Cathedral Midnight Concert.

Day 3 Vesterålen and Lofoten islands
Enjoy the stunning views of sheltered bays and glorious mountain landscapes wrapped in the cloak of a polar winter. We stop at Stokmarknes – home to the Hurtigruten Museum, before continuing through the Raftsund, a picturesque and narrow channel between the Vesterålen and Lofoten Islands. As a tribute to the fishing history in Lofoten, our chef shows how to fillet the catch of the day on deck.

Day 4 Arctic Circle, Seven Sisters
Enjoy a spectacular winter scenery of the picturesque Helgeland coast with its myriad islets and steep granite walls. As we cross the Arctic Circle again and sail past the famed peaks of the Seven Sisters we enter a world of legend and folklore.

Day 5 Trondheim and Kristiansund
Today you have the opportunity to explore the city of Trondheim again. Nidaros Cathedral, where three Queens and seven kings have been crowned, is Scandinavia’s largest medieval building. Later, on our way to kristiansund, you can see the steep, pointed and snow-covered peaks of the Romsdal Alps.

Day 6 Bergen, disembarkation
Today your journey with Hurtigruten has come to an end, but before we reach the finishing line there are still a few nautical miles of fascinating winter scenery ahead of us.
