Full Itinerary

Hurtigruten’s Classic Voyage North lasts 7 days and starts in the southernmost port, Bergen. You should still have some time before the departure to explore one of Norway’s most beautiful and distinctive cities. Once the cruise gets underway the route north will take you along the Hjeltefjord which happens to be the same route the Vikings sailed to reach the Shetland Islands and beyond.
Overnight:  Hurtigruten vessel  (D)

If you wake up early enough you should be able to see Mt. Hornelen (860m), the mountain which according to the saga was climbed by the Viking King Olav Tryggvason. After sailing past West Cape, the vessel will cross the open sea for the first time during the cruise. The ship will navigate its way through skerries and islands before reaching the Art Nouveau town of Alesund. In the summer months, the vessel will sail into was some consider to be the jewel in Norway’s crown, Geirangerfjord. The fjord is one of the most beautiful surrounded by majestic mountain peaks, steep cliffs and cascading waterfalls. In autumn, the vessel will instead explore the idyllic Hjørundfjord. This fjord is also a treat because only Hurtigruten ships sail into this gem of a fjord.

Trondheim, formerly called Nidaros, was founded in 997 A.D. and was Norway’s capital for almost 200 hundred years from 1030 – 1217. The city is home to Norway’s national shrine, Nidaros Cathedral, which has been a popular pilgrimage destination for nearly 1,000 years. Today it is a city of students, technology, culture, cycling and food. Trondheim’s architecture and surroundings create a beautiful, almost mystical atmosphere for any outing, whether you prefer a guided tour of Nidaros Cathedral, kayaking on the river Nid and into the city’s smaller channels, or a casual walk or bicycle ride among the beautifully restored wooden buildings in the Bakklandet district.

Today you will cross the Arctic Circle. This invisible border at 66 degrees 33 minutes north marks the southernmost point for the midnight sun, which shines 24 hours a day in the summer. The chances of catching the Northern Lights in winter are also higher above this line. This is where the Arctic begins. Norway’s second largest glacier, Svartisen, is located near the old trading village and port of call Ørnes. The journey continues along the beautiful Helgeland coast, considered by many to be just as spectacular as Lofoten. In the afternoon, the vessel makes its way from Bodø across Vestfjord, and the 1000 metres high mountain Lofotveggen will appear on the horizon which one can take as the sign that one is finally in Lofoten.
