Hurtigruten New Voyages for 2017 amd 2018

Hurtigruten has released its latest collection of coastal voyages in its new 2017/18 brochure.

The Norwegian coastal voyage specialist now features a fleet of 12 ships and calls at 34 ports along the Norwegian coastline.

A range of classic voyages is included, ranging from a 12-day full round trip and an 11-day Norwegian discovery voyage ending in Trondheim, to a seven-day Voyage North and six-day Voyage South. Over 60 tailor-made excursions are available, including husky dog sledging, kayaking, fishing, snowmobiling and whale-watching.

Guests are offered the opportunity to learn more with the line's expedition teams whose purpose it is to add a new dimension to each voyage with their wealth of knowledge. Hurtigruten has also launched a Young Explorers Programme for active youngsters between the ages of 7-13. Families will explore and learn about local nature, wildlife, food, the environment and famous explorers during their Norwegian adventures. Again, the company's new culinary concept, Norway’s Coastal Kitchen, offers ingredients sourced both from the sea and from local farmers along the routes.

Prices for a 12-day Classic round-trip voyage from Bergen lead in at £947 per person, while a six-day Voyage South itinerary leads in at £554.

Meanwhile, Hurtigruten has announced that its new ship, MS Spitsbergen will be christened on July 6 2016. The ceremony will see the new explorer ship christened under Norway’s midnight sun, with the port town of Svolvaer as a backdrop. Named after the largest island in the Svalbard Archipelago, the vessel will start its first season in Norway before alternating between sailings along the Norwegian coastline and polar expeditions. Guests will be able to join her on a range of voyages, including In the Wake of the Vikings, which sails along the Viking trail, from Bergen via the British Isles to Iceland, landing on several islands in the North Atlantic Ocean.
