Your Hurtigruten experience starts in Trondheim. Arrive a day early, so you have all day and evening to experience the city before leaving with Hurtigruten at 10 the following day.

The city is full of sights, eateries and culture – something for every taste. The city offers everything from Nidaros Cathedral, Rockheim, sverresborg, Tyholttårnet and Bakklandet to tours in Bymarka, Pirbadet and various water sports activities in Nidelven. If you are looking for great shopping opportunities, the city has a number of large shopping malls, but also fun shops such as Aunt Isabel, BananaMoon or the French fashion store Shine. When you need a break from sightseeing and shopping, cafés or restaurants are everywhere.

We sail out through the beautiful Trondheimsfjorden, which is 170 km long and 25 km wide. Like most Norwegian fjords, it is also deep; 577 m at the deepest. Along the way you will understand how much fishing has meant for the coastal municipalities.

Kristiansund's location has given the city its resources through fishing, shipbuilding and the oil industry. The city is called the Norwegian Klipfish Capital due to the long history of salt cod exports. Take a tour of the Atlantic Road to see one of Norway's most visited tourist attractions. Then we cross the open sea on the way to "City of Roses", Molde.

During the night, the ship embarks in Ålesund, Torvik and Måløy. Before we dock in Bergen there are still some nautical miles left of the fascinating landscape.

Enjoy the sight of the Nordfjorden under the mighty Jostedalsbreen. In the morning we have a short stop in Florø, which is Norway's westernmost city. Some nautical miles south of Florø we sail past the inlet of the beautiful Sognefjord, and then the magnificent archipelago from the Fedje and beautiful Øygarden into Bergen, where the journey ends.

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.
