Video Wednesday: Hurtigruten Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about Hurtigruten in Norway.

We begin one of the most beautiful sea journeys in the world in Bergen, an ancient seaport and trading town where we will be passengers on Norway’s,‘Hurtigruten’. The Bryggen district was once founded by the German Hanse and is one of Bergen’s most famous landmarks. The picturesque houses that once belonged to German traders make the charming historical district look more like an open air museum.

The Ms Nordnorge is one of a new generation of ships that belong to the famous Hurtigruten Fleet and can take seven hundred passengers.

At the mouth of the Nidelv in the Trondheimsfjord is the third largest city in Norway, Trondheim, an important trading and administrative centre. At the beginning of the thirteenth century Trondheim was a city of great influence and was also where the Norwegian kings of mediaeval times were crowned and although it gradually lost its political importance it still contains several fascinating buildings. From Trondheim the ship travels the century-old historic route north into Norway’s most remote regions.

Four and a half hours from Bodø and we arrive at the Lofoten, a fairy-tale group of islands in the North Atlantic. When the weather is fine we relax on deck, take in the fresh sea air and sunbathe while the ship glides through the water. A round trip through the historic town of Kirkenes marks the end of a wonderful journey through the fjords and coastal towns in the north of Norway.

    My brother has been on this cruise 2 or 3 times already. I’d love to go also, but I would love more time ashore to shop, investigate our heritage and relatives homes, and travel bey
    ond to Germany, etc. Obviously, this is a super cruise.

      Hello Betty
      Thanks for visiting and for commenting. I have only travelled parts of this trip. Would like to do the entire roundtrip one day. Maybe we’ll meet on Hurtigruten 🙂
