Known as the 'Gateway to the World', Hamburg is the ideal port for us to start our adventurous cruise up the stunning Norwegian coast. Hamburg, the second largest city in Germany, is a place of strong contrasts, with lush parks, historic buildings, and sleek modern architecture.

Norwegian Coastal Towns

Our first stop is Bergen, which is also the starting point of Hurtigruten's traditional Norway Coastal cruise. Enjoy the city's marvelous, well-preserved historic buildings before re-joining the ship and heading north. We sail into the magnificent Geirangerfjord, where you can disembark and join an overland trip to Ålesund. This road journey enables you to discover the UNESCO-listed Geirgangerfjord, with amazing views and photo stops along the way. We continue along the route of the coastal cruise as we make our way to Trondheim, Bodø, and the Lofoten archipelago towns of Reine and Svolvær. Subject to weather conditions, the captain will sail into the narrow Trollfjord, with mountain ranges towering on both sides!

Stopping at Hammerfest and Honningsvåg gives you the opportunity to visit both of Norway's northernmost towns as well as the capital of the North Cape – and both places have plenty for you to explore.

We also stop at Kirkenes to explore this intriguing port with strong Russian ties before we turn around and make our way south.

Our final morning brings us into the capital of the Arctic – Tromsø, a delightful town well worth exploring before heading home.
