Free Flights From Hurtigruten

Spring along Norway’s coast is a magical time as the days get warmer and colour gently returns to the landscape. Hurtigruten has now made it easier to experience this beautiful season with the offer of free flights on selected departures in April. 

Available on the 12-day Classic Round Voyage from Bergen in the south to Kirkenes in the north and back, the ship calls at more than 30 ports, many of which are never visited by larger ships.

Customers travelling at this time will also be able to enjoy their journey under the new ‘Arctic Awakening’ theme, which includes a wide range of shore excursions and onboard activities. As part of this, guests will have the opportunity to learn new skills, such as how to shell prawns and fillet fish, all under the guidance of local fishermen who come on board especially for this purpose. In addition, from mid-April, the ships sail into the famous Geirangerfjord (above), a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a big draw for many travellers.

Classic Round Voyage: Take the 12-day Classic Round Voyage from Bergen to Kirkenes and back. Starting at £1,587pp, the price includes full board on the ship and free flights with BMI from London Heathrow on selected dates in April. Based on two sharing.
