The car’s access pass must be shown to the crew on the car deck (you’ll get your access pass when you check in). You can drive your car on board yourself, or you can ask the crew to help you. If there is limited time before departure, the crew will give you the access pass on the car deck.
The car deck will be locked, and the vehicle cannot be accessed during the cruise. During high season, there are limited spaces available for cars on some of the short cruises. Unfortunately, camper vans and trailers cannot be transported with Hurtigruten.
