Single Savings On Northern Lights Voyages

Travelling to the Norwegian Fjords just got easier for solo travellers with a new offer from specialists Hurtigruten. Single passengers can now take advantage of 15% savings off selected departures – plus single supplements have also been removed on these sailings.

The offer is ideal for those who like to travel alone or prefer the privacy of their own cabin without paying a supplement. Available on the 12-day Classic Round Voyage, the seven-day Classic Voyage North and the six-day Classic Voyage South for selected dates from October 3 to December. 14 It is also widely reported that this winter is expected to be one of the best years for solar activity and, therefore, potentially a great year for spotting the Northern Lights.

A voyage with Hurtigruten offers passengers the opportunity to get closer to the shores, coastline and communities of Norway as the ships call at over 34 ports, many of them not visited by the larger cruise ships.

The ultimate voyage journey is the full 12-day Classic Round Voyage from Bergen in the south to Kirkenes in the north, taking guests high above the Arctic Circle and back to Bergen, or the shorter half-voyages can also be enjoyed. There is no better way to experience the Northern Lights than by sailing through the sheltered coastal waters of Norway, on board a Hurtigruten as the Northern Lights are set against a dark sky, free from artificial light.

Classic Round Voyage – From £1,222pp (saving £549); price includes 12 days full board on the ship and fuel supplement.

Voyage North – from £847pp (saving £384pp); price includes seven days full board on the ship and fuel supplement.
