Peter's Pocket Guide - Coastal Norway
Norway is best known for its stunning scenery. This Guide is based on my voyage through the islands, mountains and fjords courtesy of the Coastal Express service operated by Hurtigruten ASA.
The route is internationally known as “the world’s most beautiful voyage”. With a fleet of 11 ships, one leaves Bergen every day and calls at 34 towns and villages up and down the coast to Kirkenes in the far north of the country and returning back to Bergen over the 11 day duration of the voyage.
To add to the experience, there are a number of seasonal optional excursions available throughout the voyage.
Your ship will call at places like Ålesund, Trondheim, Tromsø, and Kirkenes. You will have the opportunity to visit North Cape, the northernmost point on the European Continent.
This Guide gives you a taste of the rich variety of experiences that this trip has to offer.
