Press release -

Up to 20% off on the ‘most beautiful voyage in the world’

Norwegian coastal sailings 2021-23 on sale

Seattle, WA (May 14, 2021) – With most Canadians ready to resume international travel as soon as it will be allowed, Hurtigruten Norway Coastal Express is offering up to 20% off a number of sailings between this August and May 2023 to explore the Norwegian coastline.

With 128 years experience of operating along the coast of Norway, no cruise company knows or does Norway better than Hurtigruten. One of the most spectacular coastlines in the world, Hurtigruten has operated voyages between Kirkenes above the Arctic Circle and Bergen, the country’s second-largest city, since 1893. This route is often described as “the most beautiful voyage in the world”.

Norway is regularly on most Canadians’ bucket lists, and just last month, seeing the Northern Lights in Northern Norway was named the number one bucket list travel experience in the world, according to USTOA (the United States Tour Operators Association). Being onboard a ship is one of the best ways to experience these magical occurrences from November to March every year. To ensure that guests can cross the lights off their bucket list, Hurtigruten offers the unique Northern Lights Promise on select voyages.

The departures on sale range from six to 12 days, with the latter calling at 34 ports along the Norwegian coast and sailing past more than 100 fjords and 1,000 mountains. Guests can enjoy the astounding Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage site; the old Viking town of Trondheim, Norway’s traditional historic, religious, and cultural capital; the postcard-worthy Lofoten Islands, whose special beauty is praised as one of the most beautiful locations in the world by National Geographic; or wander through Tromsø, the gateway to the Arctic Ocean, on the North Cape at the top of Scandinavia. All eligible sailings can be found at hurtigruten.com/coastal-offers/ and are valid until June 30, 2021.

Earlier this month, Hurtigruten Norway Coastal Express announced all its seven ships will undergo one of the largest environmental upgrade in the history of European shipping, with significant green upgrades which will result in CO2 (carbon dioxide) emissions being reduced by at least 25% and NOx (nitrogen oxide) emissions cut by 80%.
