According to Wikipedia, Hurtigruten is the one of the world’s leading premium Expedition Voyage Operator.
They have been sailing up and down Norway since 1983, so we thought we would incorporate the MS Midnatsol into our trip for 36 hours, and take the famous Hurtigruten from Trondheim to Bergen.
The company started operating voyages on Norway‘s western and northern coast between Bergen and Kirkenes. Sometimes referred to as Norwegian Coastal Express, Hurtigruten ships sail almost the entire length of the country, completing the round-trip journey in 11 days.
We found that a day and a half was more than enough – cabin fever would certainly set in for much longer!
We didn’t get that far, but what we did see was beautiful!
Bergen and Trondheim are a distance of 700 km (435 mi) apart, which is covered by several transportation options. Each option has its pros and cons, the main problem with the boat is it’s very slow and also blooming expensive – but for 36 hours at least you can relax and watch the coast go by; I loved it.
