Hurtigruten Expeditions, MS Maud, Northern Europe
By Valerie on 12/06/2022
The Hurtigruten coastal voyage is amazing from start to finish and offers many opportunities to explore the ports visited. Crew on board are very helpful and trips out, although slightly expensive as you would expect in Norway, are informative and well worth booking. Every day there is somewhere new to visit and explore and activities and lectures onboard are also interesting and give you an insight into the surroundings. It is one of those journeys where you can do as much or as little as you want. Just sit back and watch the ever changing scenery, all spectacular. My favourite was attending the Midnight concert at the Arctic Cathedral in Tromso. Truly amazing! We have already travelled this route several times at different times of the year and have never been disappointed, as you can have all seasons of weather in just one day, which add to the experience. One of the other trips was to Svalbard on the Hurtigruten M S Fram. Totally different experience and luckily we spotted 13 polar bears, walruses, Arctic fox, reindeer and many species of bird and fauna. A once in a life time trip, thanks to Hurtigruten.
