Hurtigruten starts with Norway trips from Hamburg in June

June 17, 2020 - In one week, on June 24 2020, Hurtigruten will start its Norway cruises from Hamburg. The brand new hybrid expedition ship Fridtjof Nansen takes six 15-day cruises along the Norwegian coast from Hamburg between June 4th and September 15th.

The highlights of the sea voyages offered from Hamburg are the classic highlights of the trip to Norway. This includes circumnavigating the North Cape, Trips in the Geiranger and Trollfjords the spectacular archipelago of Lofoten. Fjords and islands off the actual Hurtigruten route are new to the program: Lyngenfjord with the Lyngen Alps, the islands of Hitra and Senja or the mountain Torghatten near Brønnøysund. - As the Hurtigruten ships will have the Norwegian ports almost exclusively to themselves in summer 2020, these special trips with the Fridtjof Nansen should be particularly attractive.
