It’s understandable that a cruise through the Norwegian Fjords is referred to as the ‘world’s most beautiful sea voyage’. The cruise ships often have various decks. Perfect to catch a breath of fresh air, while inside it is nice to have a cup of coffee.

The luxury ferry is equipped with a jacuzzi on deck, a panorama deck and several restaurants. It doesn’t matter if your on a long cruise or on a short trip, you can spend the night and wake up with a stunning view.

But if you go by car to the Norwegian Fjords, you are still at a distance from the water. An alternative is the Hurtigruten, an old converted postal ferry. You can go with your car on the boat, an overnight stay is also possible. In that case, you can see the sunset over the Fjords. And the sunrise…

The Hurtigruten has 34 different stops along the route. Usually a small village, nothing more than a couple of coloured houses together. You can get off at each stop and explore the town, do some shopping or go for a hike.

And easily get on the next boat the day after, or the day after that, or drive a little and get on at the next stop.

The route goes from the city of Bergen in the south to Kirkenes in the north.

There is also a Northern Lights-alert. As soon as this phenomenon is noticed, it will be announced in multiple languages. Also if it occurs in the middle of the night.
