DAY 2 FLORØ―MOLDE [B,L,D]
We continue north to Ålesund, a beautiful town filled with perfect examples of Art Nouveau architecture.

During the winter, we fascinate you with our expert-led lectures about the aurora borealis, the northern lights. Shore excursions are available.
DAY 3 TRONDHEIM―RØRVIK B[ ,L,D]
The architecture and surroundings in Trondheim create a beautiful and almost-mythical setting, whether you are exploring the city by foot, bike, or boat.

DAY 4 BRØNNØYSUND―SVOLVÆR B [,L,D]
The Arctic Circle marks the border of the Arctic region. In summer this means 24-hour daylight – often referred to as the ‘midnight sun.’ During fall and winter, being above this degree of latitude gives you the best chance of experiencing the northern lights. Shore excursions are available.
DAY 5 HARSTAD―TROMSØ―SKJERVØY [B,L,D]
Get ready for a day full of exciting activities, whatever the season! Visiting Risøyhamn, Harstad, Finnsnes, and the capital of the Arctic, Tromsø, you can join several excursions such as whale watching, Husky dog sledding, polar history walks, mountain hikes and kayaking.
DAY 6 ØKSFJORD―BERLEVÅG [B,L,D]
Enjoy the magnificent sub-Arctic landscape as we cross the 71st parallel on our journey towards the North Cape,
the northernmost point on the continent. In summer, you might see herds of reindeer and campsites belonging to the indigenous Sámi people. In winter, experience the snow-clad valleys, the fresh winter air, and perhaps see the magical northern lights. Shore excursions are available.
DAY 7 BÅTSFJORD―KIRKENES [B,L,D]
The vistas become more dramatic as we approach Kirkenes, just a few miles from the Russian border. This is Hurtigruten’s turning point. Northbound passengers will disembark upon arrival. After a few hours docked at Kirkenes, the ship will depart upon the southbound half of her voyage. Shore excursions are available.
DAY 8 MEHAMN―TROMSØ B , L ,[D]
The ship arrives at Honningsvåg in the early morning. After calling at Havøysund, she will stop in Hammerfest, the world’s most northerly town.

Shore excursions are available.
DAY 9 HARSTAD―STAMSUND [B,L,D]
The daylight sailing through the Lofoten Islands is a highlight for many Hurtigruten guests. The Lofoten region is renowned for its natural beauty with steep mountains, wild nature, and small, picturesque fishing villages. This day
also offers several exciting excursions that will make you feel like a natural-born explorer.
DAY 10 BODØ―RØRVIK [B,L,D]
