Coastal Steamer Hurtigruten Norway

Coastal Steamer Hurtigruten
The World´s Most Beautiful Voyage START and END in Bergen, Norway. Every day, 365 days a year, a Coastal Steamer ship leaves Bergen for Kirkenes. A ticket for the Coastal Steamer is a ticket to the theatre, an 11-day drama in which new acts constantly unfold all around you.

The World´s Most Beautiful Voyage offers a unique combination of peace of mind, comfort, and service on board, coupled with constantly renewed impressions of the scenery through which you sail and the harbours you visit. You will witness tender goodbyes on the quayside next to forklifts loaded with cargo. See simple, weather-beaten villages where you wouldn´t have thought it possible that anyone could live.

Each ship has its own style. Among artists that have decorated the ships, we can mention Kaare Espolin Johnson, Karl Erik Harr and Frans Widerberg.

No matter what time of year you travel the natural light plays an important role, dramatising the scenery and enhancing the experience. During the winter months a quiet, atmospheric darkness prevails, penetrated by warm embers of light from navigation beacons, clusters of houses and towns along the shore.
