Hurtigruten is best known for its Norwegian Coastal Voyages where they carry both Norwegian passengers and overseas tourists for the last 125 years.

In addition to their Norwegian Coastal voyages, Hurtigruten’s long history of exploration has also given them the accolade as the go to company for Expedition Cruises

At Suitcase Travel we are here to help talk you through the difference in experiences of the Coastal Voyage and Hurtigruten’s Exploration cruises.

Norwegian Coastal Voyage = Meeting and getting up close with the Norwegian people and their culture in addition to the nature and geology of Norway.

Expedition Cruising = Getting up close to nature, the geology and science of your chosen destination.

Both types of cruising have a focus and emphasis of being on land as much as being onboard.

Call us, we simply love Hurtigruten and love talking about them.

Norway Coastal Voyage

The Norwegian Coastal Voyages have become a “must do holiday” in the same vein as the Orient Express and Route 66, after all it is known as “The Worlds Most Beautiful Voyage”

The classic route is a 12 day voyage from Bergen to Kirkenes and back again. This 2,500 nautical mile journey not only takes you along Norway’s jaw-dropping coastline and stunning fjords but also to the very heart of all things Norwegian. Shorter trips are also available.

Travel is all year and you can choose to journey in the winter for the Northern Lights or in the summer to see the Midnight Sun. In fact, using the four seasons of the year you can have four entirely different holidays on the same voyage!
