Like a crumpled ribbon, Norway stretches along the northern coast of Europe, offering some of the world’s most spectacular scenery. Sheer cliffs rise steeply from the tranquil waters; freshly melted snows from hidden ice fields cascade down steep slopes, creating feathery streams of light. Tiny farmhouses cling precariously to the steep slopes while quaint villages sit nestled in small protected coves. Like long fingers of the sea, the fjords penetrate deep into the heartland of Norway, creating watery roadways to isolated villages. Join us this spring as we journey to the Land of the Midnight Sun on board the ms Nordnorge of the Hurtigruten Norwegian Coastal Cruises fleet. Originally developed to serve the remote communities of northern Norway, these specially designed vessels are really cruise ships serving a dual purpose - in addition to carrying freight for the cities and villages of the far north, they allow cruisers a unique opportunity to visit these picturesque settlements while sailing the inside passage to the North Cape and beyond. We have limited space on this special departure and our rates are indeed attractive, we urge you to book early.

Hurtigruten Cruises

Nord-norge means the northern part of Norway, mostly located inside the Artic Circle. Our cruise ship was built in Norway in 1997. Between 2002 and 2007, ms Nordnorge gave her guests memorable experiences in Antarctica. On board guests can admire the work of artists such as Johanne Marie Hansen-Krone, Ellen Lenvik and Dagfinn Bakke. The interior décor very much reflects an Art Nouveau and Art Deco influence. Designed to serve the coastal waters of Norway, carrying post, freight and passengers to the world; designed also to serve as a cruise ship, the 11,384 ton vessel can carry up to 590 passengers in comfortable and fully featured cabins. On board, panorama and observation lounges, Torghatten and Vestfordjen, treat you to unforgettable views of the surrounding scenery. The ship features include a main restaurant located on Deck 4, a café, shops, an internet café, a library and a bar/lounge. Self-service laundry facilities are available. Cabins are comfortable and cozy and they feature twin beds plus a full bathroom with shower.
