Hurtigruten MS NORDNORGE

ABOVE: MS Nordnorge is one of the cruise ferries on Hurtigruten's year-round North Cape route.

stateroom photoHurtigruten is a fleet of 13 ferry cruisers that operate year-round from Bergen to the North Cape of Norway.

During a 12-day round trip, the vessels stop at 34 ports. Passengers who don't have time for the full itinerary can book one-way voyages of 7 days (northbound) or 6 days (southbound). It's also possible to buy short-haul ferry tickets between individual ports. Optional shore excursions range from city sightseeing tours to Zodiac, dogsled, and birdwatching trips.

Spitsbergen cruise photoHurtigruten also provides adventure cruises in the Arctic, Greenland, and the Antarctic. (See our Spitsbergen Cruise article and photo gallery for an archived report of a cruise aboard a vintage Coastal Voyage steamer, the MS Nordstjernen.) A handful of voyages to Iceland, Antarctica, Patagonia, and other destinations are also on Hurtigruten's 2016 cruise calendar.
