Entertainment and Activities

Highlights of Hurtigruten voyages are the exciting and diverse land excursions. The countless harbors visited by Hurtigruten ships are always happy to host walking trips and bicycle tours. Bicycles can be reserved and rented on board. Live music and dancing can also be enjoyed evenings in the bar area with performances from local choirs and musicians.With Hurtigruten it is guaranteed that there will always be enough time for relaxation and the enjoyment of nature.

Dress Code

Relaxation and the enjoyment of nature have always been priorities with Hurtigruten. We therefore believe your time on board should be spent at your leisure. As the weather can be unpredictable at times, we advise all passengers to bring waterproof clothing. Gloves, scarves, hats, and warm layers of underclothing should not be forgotten, especially during winter months. Sturdy footwear and hiking sticks are recommended for land excursions. Among the most important items to bring are sunglasses, as ultraviolet rays reflected by ice and snow can be dangerous for the eyes.

Additional Information
