Setting sail from Bergen

Beautiful Bergen, Norway's former capital, is a perfect city to explore on foot. Bryggen - the old Hanseatic wharf, and a UNESCO World Heritage site - still has the old harbour timber buildings, whilst other attractions include the funicular up Mount Floyen, with stunning views when you reach the top, and the busy fish market.

Arriving in Kirkenes

Just ten miles from the Russian border, Kirkenes has the feel of a frontier town, with signs in both Norwegian and Russian, and this is the end of the line for the Hurtigruten coastal service. The town itself is fairly nondescript, but activities on offer nearby include snowmobiling and husky sledding.

The Ship

Your home from home

Hurtigruten - MS Vesteralen in the Norwegian Fjords
MS Vesteralen - Polar Outside Cabin
MS Vesteralen - Restaurant

Named after Hurtigruten's very first ship to sail the Norwegian coast back in 1893, MS Vesterålen is one of the smallest vessels in the current fleet.

What we love

MS Vesterålen is part of the classic Norwegian Coastal Voyage fleet, offering an intimate onboard experience with a maximum capacity of 490 guests. She is one of the oldest vessels in the fleet, with more of a heritage feel than the newer ships, and public areas include a restaurant, café, two lounge bars and an observation deck.

Capacity 490 Guests
Crew 50 Staff
Style A working ship operating voyages (not cruises), the style is relaxed and comfortable, accommodating a combination of tourists and Norwegians ferrying goods up and down the coast.
