Itinerary

Travelling with us from Tromsø to Bergen gives you a real taste of coastal Norway. Experience many of the highlights of a classic round trip, for example the beautiful Vesterålen, Lofoten, the Seven Sisters, the Helgeland coastline – and towns such as Tromsø, Trondheim, Brønnøysund and Bergen.
Day 1
Tromsø – Stamsund
One day packed with highlights

The ship sails from Tromsø at 1:30, and if you’re not too tired, we recommend you stay out on deck to see the midnight sun shining over the mountaintops round the town in summer. During the rest of the year, you’ll have a good chance of seeing the northern lights or the magical moonlight reflected in the sea. Early in the morning, the ship stops in Harstad, before it sails on towards the Risøy channel. This narrow passage is only 7 m deep. It was built especially for Hurtigruten so the ships could sail between Harstad and Vesterålen. Troll Fjord is only 2 km long and 100 m wide, and is flanked by truly majestic mountains. If time and weather are on our side, the captain sometimes sails through the narrow fjord, where the mountain sides almost touch the sides of the ship. Then we sail through Lofoten. The landscape consists of sparkling mountain tops, deep fjords, large seabird colonies and long, white sandy beaches. Even the travel magazine Lonely Planet could not contain its enthusiasm and wrote: “This place is quite simply inexpressibly beautiful”. Well, now you can see it with your own eyes.

Day 2

Crossing the Arctic Circle at 66°33’N is one of the highlights of the day. Stand on deck when we pass by Viking Island and see the Arctic Circle globe. We mark the event with a taste of Arctic traditions on deck. We take a quick tour around Nesna, an idyllic old trading port, before sailing on to Sandnessjøen. Another highlight on this day is when we sail past the Seven Sisters mountain range.

When we arrive in Brønnøysund, you’ll have enough time to disembark and explore this little town. Then we sail past Torghatten, which is famous for its natural hole that goes right through the mountain. The hole, which is 160 metres long, 35 metres tall and 20 metres wide, was formed in the Ice Age.

Day 3
Trondheim – Ålesund
See coastal towns steeped in history

Trondheim is a relatively large city, but still retains its small town charm. Some of the streets date back to the Middle Ages and you can still walk along them today. The town boasts many attractive wooden buildings which were built all the way back in the 17th century. Back on the ship, we sail out through the beautiful Trondheim Fjord.

Later in the afternoon, the ship docks at Kristiansund, which is known as Norway’s clip fish capital due to the export of salted cod. When we cross the open sea on our way to the “Town of Roses”, Molde, you will see the pointed peaks of the Romsdalsalpe mountains on the horizon. Sink into the comfortable seats in the panorama lounge, or out on deck. Enjoy the silence as you watch the landscape pass by slowly, and feel the soft swells of the waves beneath you.

Before we dock in Bergen, there are still a few nautical miles to go with plenty of fascinating landscape to see. Behold the sight of the Nord Fjord below the mighty Jostedalsbreen glacier. The fjord winds out towards the east and continues for 90 km inland to Loen and Olden. The harsh coastal landscape stands in stark contrast to the inner fjord areas where there is less wind and rain. Lush orchards and glaciers stretch out towards glittering lakes and stunning waterfalls. Despite the differences, the landscapes have a charm of their own, and both should be experienced.

The ship also makes a short stop in Florø, which is Norway’s westernmost town. A few nautical miles south of Florø, we sail past the inlet to the beautiful Sogne Fjord, and then the magnificent archipelago from Fedje and stunning Øygarden in towards Bergen.

The day-by-day programme will give you a few ideas about what you can see and do on your coastal voyage in Norway, but bear in mind that this itinerary is just an indication of what you can experience. After all, this is a sailing where the elements rule and weather conditions might vary, which is why every voyage with Hurtigruten is unique.
