    Day 2 Mehamn - Tromsø
    Day 3 Tromsø - Stamsund
    Day 4 Bodø - Rørvik
    Day 5 Trondheim - Ålesund
    Day 6 Ålesund - Bergen

    Day 1
    Kirkenes - Berlevåg
    Capital of the Barents Region

    Start your Classic Voyage South in the far northern town of Kirkenes (which, surprisingly, lies further east than Istanbul).

    The region has many wintertime activities, including snowshoeing, dog-sledging and snowmobiling. You can also visit an Arctic Ice Dome.

    Interested in history? Kirkenes has many small museums detailing the region’s rich heritage.

    Southbound and down
    After departing Kirkenes, we head due north, arriving at Vardø in the afternoon. Weather permitting, the brave may want to take a dip in the icy Arctic Ocean (strictly optional of course!).

    We now head due west, cruising along the Varanger peninsula to Båtsfjord and Berlevåg, home to Norway’s most famous male choir, made up of local fishermen.

    Day 2
    Mehamn - Tromsø
    Unmatched Arctic Scenery

    Around midnight we dock at Mehamn with the option to join in winter a snowmobile trip to hunt the Aurora.

    North Cape breakfast
    We again dock at Honningsvåg, where you can join an excursion that includes eating breakfast at North Cape. The ship continues to Hammerfest, where you can see the UNESCO-listed Meridian Column. You can also join a mini-mountain expedition and learn about local polar hero Adolf Lindstrøm.

    We continue south to Øksfjord with a brief stop at the old trading post of Skjervøy.

    Midnight adventures
    We then dock at Tromsø, just in time to enjoy a midnight concert at the Arctic Cathedral. You can also explore Tromsø under the Midnight Sun by boat in summer. You may want to drop by Ølhallen, a classic pub for a friendly beer.


    Day 3
    Tromsø - Stamsund
    Lofoten, Where Nature Amazes

    We arrive in Harstad, where you can join the excursion A taste of Vesterålen.

    Amazing scenery
    The island groups of Lofoten and Vesterålen offer some of the most stunning natural scenery of the entire voyage. Lofoten is renowned for its steep mountains, sandy beaches, wild nature and picturesque fishing villages.

    Hurtigruten’s birthplace
    We make a short stop at Risøyhamn, population 200, to deliver passengers, groceries and mail, and then continue to Stokmarknes, whereHurtigruten was founded more than 125 years ago.

    Go ashore and visit the Hurtigruten Museum. Continuing south, we slip through a passage into the narrow Raftsund, past peaks rising 1,000 metres from the sea.

    Spectacular Trollfjord
    We now reach spectacular Trollfjord, only 2 km long, 100 m wide and surrounded by majestic mountains. If possible, we sail inside, where the dramatic landscape inspires images of fairy tales and trolls. Just north, you can opt to see sea eagles up close by boat.

    Heart of Lofoten
    At Svolvær, you can select several excursion options, including a sunset horseback ride on a beach, fast boat ride or a guided fishing village walk. We then proceed to Stamsund along the massive Lofoten wall.


    Day 4
    Bodø - Rørvik
    Across the Arctic Circle

    Celebrate crossing the Arctic Circle with a `taste´ of Arctic tradition – a fun ceremony highlighted by a spoonful of cod liver oil.

    Mountain with a hole
    As we sail along the Helgeland coast, you’ll see the strange mountain Torghatten, famous for its distinctive hole in the centre. The opening is 160 m long, 35 m high and 20 m wide, and was created during the ice age. If the weather allows, join a hike with your guides up the mountain.

    Myths and legends
    We also sail past the Seven Sisters mountain range – with peaks up to 1,100 m high. The story goes that seven beautiful troll sisters got caught out at sunrise and turned to stone, thus the seven beautiful peaks.

    UNESCO heritage
    We next make a short stop at Nesna, before moving on to Sandnessjøen. where you can join an optional excursion in summer to the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Vega Islands.

    Charming coastal town
    Brønnøysund is a pretty little town that offers a charming high street and marina. You can join an excursion to the Norwegian Aquaculture Centre for an interesting tour and taste of fresh salmon from April throughout October.


    Day 5
    Trondheim - Ålesund
    Rich History and Living Culture

    We revisit Trondheim to further explore it´s colourful history. Join our excursion Trondheim with Nidaros Cathedral to learn more.

    Fishing, scenery and excursions
    Next is Kristiansund, a city spread across four islands with an excellent harbour that has been active since the Stone Age. Today, it is Norway’s ‘cured cod capital’ because of its centuries-old export of dried fish.

    Join an excursion to the renowned Atlantic Road - one of the most scenic routes in the world. Another interesting excursion is to Bergtatt marble mine, which includes going inside a mountain and sailing across an illuminated subterranean lake, before enjoying a meal in the mine´s ‘Grand Hall’.

    Norwegian Alps
    Those choosing to stay on board at Kristiansund will cross the open sea to Molde, known as Norway´s ‘City of Roses’. Along the way, you will take in the steep peaks of the Romsdal Alps on the horizon.

    Day 6
    Ålesund - Bergen
    A Fjord Farewell

    Night-time stops
    During the night, the ship calls at Ålesund, Torvik and Måløy, as our voyage draws to a close. Before docking in Bergen, there is fascinating scenery to see, including picturesque Nordfjord beneath Jostedal Glacier. Here the fjord widens to the east and forges 90 km inland.

    Approaching Bergen
    In the morning, we dock at Florø, Norway’s westernmost community.

    A few nautical miles south of Florø, we cross the mouth of the mighty Sognefjord, taking in superb views of the magnificent island-studded coastline en route. Finally, you disembark in the Hanseatic city of Bergen with unforgettable memories of a truly unique part of the world. We hope to see you on board again in the very near future!

    More adventures in Norway
    If you would like to see more of Norway, we highly recommend our Bergen City Sightseeing excursion (only sold on board), or various Post-programmes to experience more Norwegian cuisine, culture and scenery.
