Hurtigruten - MS Fridtjof Nansen - Lindstrom
Hurtigurten - MS Fridtjof Nansen - Fredheim
Hurtigruten - MS Fridtjof Nansen - Aune

All three restaurants are inspired by Hurtigruten's Nordic and Norwegian heritage, with menus featuring international cuisine and locally inspired specialties. All venues offer a relaxed atmosphere and open seating.


The main restaurant, Aune, is named after the Norwegian ship chandler and polar expedition supplier Tinus Aune. This is a large light filled venue with floor to ceiling windows where you can choose to dine in your own company or join a larger group of new friends.


Fredheim is the ship's informal and social meeting place, named after a 1900s hunting station on Svalbard. Serving burgers, sandwiches and pastries, here you can enjoy expansive views from tables lining the floor to ceiling windows.


Included for those staying in a suite grade and at a supplement for everyone else, the low key yet refined speciality restaurant, Lindstrøm, is where modern Norwegian Nordic cooking gives a nod of recognition to the destinations through which you are travelling with a superb rotating menu.
