Hurtigruten – Norwegian for ‘fast route’ – has been cruising the coastline of Norway for more than 120 years. Originally ferrying cargo and mail to the northern extreme cities, now they also ferry people. Visit with locals as they hang out in the cafeteria between ports, and listen for the horn as you pull into a town, informing the villagers whether this ship is headed north or south.
Hurtigruten has ten Coastal Ships, which means there are cruises headed North and South along the Norwegian coast every day of the year!
