(PRESS RELEASE)_A luxurious guest lounge in Bergen, menus with fresh and locally sourced ingredients, and sustainable excursions are part of what you will experience onboard the original coastal voyage.
Hurtigruten has operated the Norwegian Coastal Express since 1893, bringing travelers from all over the world close to everyday life in 34 small and large coastal communities between Bergen and Kirkenes.
For the 2023/24 season, now open for booking, our guests have a lot to look forward to:
“Hurtigruten’s Coastal Express is the original coastal voyage, and a unique way to experience the Norwegian coast. With almost 130 years of experience and history, the ship acts as a lifeline for small communities along the coast,” said Hurtigruten Norway CEO Hedda Felin.
Our guests can experience the “world’s most beautiful voyage” on board modern and comfortable ships that also continue the tradition of carrying cargo and local passengers, a vital part of everyday life along the coast.
Each year, we transport over 100,000 tons of goods – everything from food to medicine!
“We are very proud of operating a legacy journey with such strong traditions, but which through innovations make it sustainable, modern, and still relevant for both our international travelers, local passengers and the local businesses that rely on us for the transportation of goods,” Felin said.
