Hurtigruten Add Lyngenfjord

                                                                               Ørjan Bertelsen
There is no doubt Norway is one of the 'hottest' cruise destinations around right now (it's one of the reasons we will be featuring it in our Adventure Cruise section of the new-look World of Cruising edition due out on January 10).
And, when something new comes along, we are keen to highlight the additional options for visiting this amazing part of the world. Like this one...

In spring of next year, Hurtigruten guests can look forward to a new highlight as the beautiful Lyngenfjord, located east of the Lyngen Alps, will be featured on the southbound Hurtigruten voyage.

New excursions give guests the opportunity to explore Arctic birdlife up close, for example, on a kayak tour near Tromsø or on a trip to the national park on the Varanger Peninsula, home to a vast variety of different bird species.

Lyngenfjord is the latest fjord to be added as a seasonal addition to the regular Hurtigruten route. During the summer months (June to August) the ships will visit the famous Geirangerfjord, while in autumn (September to October) a trip to the imposing Hjørundfjord is a fixture on the sailing plan. The legendary Trollfjord is also visited all year round if weather and snow conditions allow.

The six day ‘Classic Voyage South’ from Kirkenes to Bergen costs from £1,053 per person for departures in April and May. The price includes the voyage on full board basis (5 nights) based on two people sharing. International flights, transfers and one night in a hotel on a B&B basis can be added for an additional £590 per person.
