Few places on earth can compare to the Norwegian coastline for sheer drama and natural beauty. And no other cruise line knows that coast better than Hurtigruten, the Norwegian company that has been sailing the waters around Scandinavia for more than 120 years. Hurtigruten offers something that no other cruise line can. Passengers on these ships become part of the working life of the ports that each of the ships visit. As well as passengers seeking adventure and discovery, the ships carry cargo to each port - few of which are ever visited by other cruise liners. These 12 small working coastal ships cruise around the spectacular coastline of the breathtakingly beautiful fjords, and round the Russian border to north of the Arctic Circle. For a cruise with stunning scenery, there is no better choice than Hurtigruten.
