DAY 1 : Oslo*

You've arrived

Welcome to Norway! First stop: Norway’s thriving capital, Oslo. Your hotel is located in the heart of the city, with the rest of the day or evening spent at your leisure. 

You’ll likely want to explore the many charms the cosmopolitan capital has to offer. Why not make your way to the city centre, making sure to take snaps of the architecturally distinct Rådhuset town hall, Royal Palace, and Oslo Cathedral.  

Along the waterfront, there’s Aker Brygge for popular eateries, the imposing Akershus Fortress, and the gleaming new buildings around Bjørvika waterfront. The latter is where you’ll find modern attractions such as the Oslo Opera House and landmark new Edvard Munch Museum which, as you’d expect, has the world’s largest collection of works by the iconic Norwegian artist. 

Or, if there’s enough daylight left, you could even jump on the metro from Central station. A short 20-minute ride is all it takes to bring you to the edge of a tranquil alpine forest that overlooks the city.

DAY 2 : Oslo*

Discovering Norway’s capital

Photo: Jeff Gilbert / Alamy Stock Photo

After breakfast at your hotel, we’ll go on a tour to two of Oslo’s main attractions. Vigeland Sculpture Park is located at the centre of splendid Frogner Park. There, you’ll find more than 200 visually striking sculptures in bronze, granite, and cast iron by prolific Norwegian artist Gustav Vigeland.  

Further north from Vigeland, just outside of Oslo, is Holmenkollen Ski Jump. You won’t be doing any jumping yourself, but the impressive building enjoys panoramic views over the city, lakes, and fjord. Beneath the ski jump is also the world’s oldest ski museum featuring 2,500 pairs of skis and 4,000 years of skiing history. 

The tour will end at the pier where your ship, MS Trollfjord, is waiting to depart by early evening. Once we’ve welcomed you aboard and you’ve settled into your cabin or suite, you’ll meet your Coastal Experience Team. You’ll get to know each member of the team well as they give lectures and organise onboard activities for you throughout your voyage.  

Meet your fellow guests in the ship’s two-storey panorama lounge and mark the moment we make history by sailing from Oslo for the first time. Watch as the capital’s twinkling lights fade into the distance and admire the scenery and various points of interests seen along Oslofjord. 

DAY 3 : Kristiansand

The city of lighthouses

Photo: Shutterstock

Sitting along the southern tip of the country, Kristiansand is Norway’s fifth largest city. We aim to be alongside from morning to late afternoon, giving you plenty of time to explore. 

As you walk around Kristiansand, you might notice that the city is built on a very uniform grid plan, with several straight roads running from the harbour all the way through the city. These roads are lined with architecture from different eras, evidence of the extensive rebuilds the city had to go through after major fires in the 18th and 19th centuries-, and a World War II attack. 

Kristiansand is on a mission to become the most sustainable port in Europe. Find out more about this admirable quest on an optional excursion that includes a visit to Odderøya Island. Here, you can see beautiful views of the ocean and city and visit 18th-century military barracks transformed into creative artist studios that run several sustainable initiatives. 

Kristiansand’s 20th-century military past is the focus of an optional excursion to Batterie Vara. Originally built as a German fort in World War II, it features the world’s second largest cannon ever to be mounted on land. 

Another optional excursion takes you to the working Lindesnes Lighthouse, which marks Norway’s southernmost point. See the beacon that has been guiding seafarers to safety on dark nights since the early 20th century, and learn about the long history of the site that goes all the way back to 1656.  

Optional excursions
  • Highlights of the South Coast & South Cape
    Join our guide on an overland exploration of southern Norway. Admire varied Nordic scenery, taste exquisite wine, and have lunch at Norway’s southernmost point.
  • Kristiansand WWII History Tour
    Step into the past as you learn about southern Norway’s WWII history on a tour of Kristiansand’s historical sites.
  • Norwegian Christmas at Skraastad Farm
    How do Norwegians celebrate Christmas? This tour will answer that question, and many more you might have about Norwegian culture and local traditions.

DAY 4 : Haugesund and Hardangerfjord

Viking history


As we sail past the southern tip of Norway, we’ll begin heading north along the west coast. Just past Stavanger, we’ll reach Haugesund, the ‘Home of the Viking Kings’.  

The nickname is inspired by sites such as St. Olav’s Church, built in 1250 by King Håkon Hå. There’s also Haraldshaugen, a national monument reputed to be the first king’s burial site. Why not step back in time to the Viking Age at Nordvegen Visiting Centre which features exhibitions presented by a fictional Harald Fairhair himself. 

After a short stay in Haugesund, you’ll rejoin the ship for some scenic cruising in Hardangerfjord. At 179 kilometres in length, it is the second longest fjord in the country, and fifth longest in the world. 

The stunning waterway is one of Norway’s finest. See mountain scenery everywhere you look, with the white peaks that tower over the fjord being reflected in the shimmering water below.  

The region is famous for its apple products, from jams and juice to its award-winning cider, which one food writer described as ‘Nordic Champagne’.  

Optional excursions
  • Haugesund Viking Tour by Bus
    Immerse yourself in the rich Viking heritage and coastal culture of Avaldsnes, Norway’s oldest royal seat.
  • E-Bike the Coast of Haugesund
    Let the e-bike take the strain as you roll through the beautiful nature and rich history of the homeland of the Viking kings.
  • Haugesund Art Walk with a Local Artist
    Glassblowing, architecture and Marilyn Monroe – there’s more to this art walk through picturesque Haugesund than you might expect!
  • Viking Experience by RIB
    Get a unique perspective on Norway’s Viking history as you whoosh along the beautiful, narrow strait that gave Norway its name.

DAY 5 : Ålesund

A picturesque town

Photo: Jan Hvizdal

After a hearty breakfast on the ship, we’ll dock mid-morning at a town that spreads out across a string of islands. With almost an entire day to explore, you’ll have plenty of time to see all that Ålesund has to offer. 

As we approach the shore, you might first notice the distinctive style of architecture. Every detail of the buildings, from the bright colours to the rounded spires, were all inspired by the Art Nouveau style, which was popular in the early 1900s. Almost the entire town received a makeover in the style when it was rebuilt after a major fire in 1904.  

As you leave the waterfront, you’ll find yourself in a fairy-tale town, wandering narrow streets lined with unique houses. If your camera’s memory card isn’t already full after this, you can get impressive photos of the archipelago from the nearby Mount Aksla viewpoint. The 418 steps leading there might look intimidating, but the views are well worth the effort. 

You can also visit the Atlantic Sea Park, Norway’s first marine science centre. This is one of Northern Europe’s largest saltwater aquariums, providing a home to seals, otters, and crabs, as well as many other kinds of marine life. You can even see Humboldt Penguins here, a species otherwise absent north of the equator. 

Optional activities may include a fjord tour of either Geirangerfjord or Hjørundfjord. If weather allows, kayaking may even be an option. Imagine gliding across the surface of the fjord, skimming your hand over the pristine water as marine life swims in the depths below you. 

Optional excursions
  • Architecture & Breweries - Ålesund on Foot
    Explore Ålesund’s remarkable Art Nouveau architecture then taste some of the best small-brewery beer from the local area. 
  • Saga Islands Bus Tour to Alnes - Winter
    Join this bus tour to experience two islands, one lighthouse and countless tales of the Vikings. The scenery is impressive too!

DAY 6 : Brønnøysund

Distinctive Nordic nature

Photo: Johannes Rigg / Alamy Stock Photo

Surrounded by islands and water, Brønnøysund sits on a narrow peninsula that juts out of the mainland. Around 5,000 people live in this small town, many in colourful houses against a backdrop of gentle slopes and dramatic mountain peaks. 

Enjoy the bustling atmosphere of the harbour and take a walk along Havnegata. Drop into one of the pubs for a snack, or treat yourself to a meal in a local restaurant. Wander the visitors’ marina, or visit an 1870 Neo-Gothic stone church. 

As we sail, look out for the Vega archipelago, a cluster of some 6,500 islands, skerries, and islets. There’s a UNESCO World Heritage Centre on the island of Gardsøy which showcases how highly prized eider down is harvested from the local eider ducks by providing little huts for them to build their nests in. 

On an island south of Brønnøysund, you’ll find Torghatten mountain, recognisable by a natural tunnel that runs through the centre. According to local lore, the hole is the result of a troll who fired an arrow at a young woman who had rejected his advances. As the Troll King threw his hat to protect her, the sun began to rise, turning the hat to stone with a hole in the middle from the arrow. 

On an optional excursion, you can take an hour’s walk up to the hole in the mountain. Peer through the tunnel and enjoy the view of the islands around. 

We’ll continue sailing north in the afternoon, leaving the Helgeland coast behind us as we cross the Arctic Circle around midnight. 

Optional excursions
  • Legends of Torghatten and Brønnøysund by Bus - Winter
    See Brønnøysund’s sights by bus then follow in the footsteps of trolls to a mythologised mountain with a hole right through it.  
  • Winter’s Walk and Mini-Concert in Brønnøysund
    Discover Brønnøysund’s fascinating history, geology and musical talent on this guided winter walk through the town’s highlights.

DAY 7 : Svolvær and Stokmarknes

Lofoten islands and our historic birthplace

Photo: Espen Mills

Today, we explore Lofoten, a striking group of islands that rise out of the Norwegian Sea. As soon as you see the towering peaks around you with fishing villages clinging to their sides, you’ll understand why this island chain is so often praised as one of Norway’s most stunning locations.  

We’ll dock in the town of Svolvær mid-morning. Located on the island of Austvågøya in the heart of Lofoten, Svolvær is the biggest town of the archipelago, humming with shops, restaurants, galleries, and cafés to enjoy. You can also admire views of the Svolvær Goat, a nearby mountain named for resembling a goat and its horns.  

A variety of optional excursions are available from Svolvær, including winter fishing, paddling along the coastline in a kayak, or embarking on a bus tour to learn more about Lofoten’s history.

We can’t visit the area without spending some time in Stokmarknes. This historic town is part of Vesterålen, an archipelago just northeast of Lofoten. Of all the places we visit, this one is particularly special to us. It was here that the Original Coastal Express was founded in 1893 by shipping pioneer Richard With.  

The Coastal Express soon became a lifeline for Norway’s remote coastal communities, and fittingly, our legacy has been immortalised in the place where it all began. Standing on the waterfront, you’ll find our 1956 ship MS Finnmarken, encased in a glass building like a ship in a bottle.  

This is Hurtigrutemuseet, the museum that chronicles our history as Norway’s leading expedition cruise line from start to now. On a guided tour, you can explore the retired vessel and experience the atmosphere of a past era.  

Optional excursions
  • Winter Fishing in Lofoten
    Try your hand at sea fishing aboard a traditional Norwegian fishing boat from 1917
  • Kayaking in Lofoten - Winter
    Take to the water and see Svolvær’s coastline from a different perspective as you follow a local guide and paddle aboard your own two-person kayak.
  • Best of Vesterålen Winter - History, Arts & Culture Tour
    Experience breathtaking views, rich culture and coastal heritage on a bus tour of the stunning Vesterålen archipelago.
  • The Coastal Express Heritage Tour
    Take an exclusive tour of the Hurtigruten Museum, home to our full-sized retired ship, in our birthplace of Stokmarknes.
  • Lofoten Winter - Art, History, and Henningsvær
    Get to know Lofoten’s history, admire timeless art in SKREI, and soak up the fishing village atmosphere of Henningsvær.

DAY 8 : Tromsø

The gateway to the Arctic

Today you’ll get the chance to see the Arctic Capital itself. Often called the “gateway to the Arctic”, Tromsø is Norway's northernmost university city, and the ideal place to enjoy some proper winter activities, like dog sledding and snowshoeing.  

Sitting around 217 miles north of the Arctic Circle, Tromsø experiences Polar Night for just over a month in the winter, and will give you a great chance of seeing the Northern Lights.  

This urban city is buzzing with life, with everything from trendy restaurants and cafés to boutique shops selling local crafts and produce, and even high fashion. MS Trollfjord will be in port here for 10 hours, giving you plenty of time to both join optional excursions and explore the city yourself. 

Among the activities on offer is a guided tour of the Polar Museum which chronicles the city’s legacy of Arctic hunting and trade. For live animals, head to the Polaria centre, an aquarium home to a variety of Arctic marine species, including seals. 

Across the water from Polaria, you’ll find the Arctic Cathedral, standing out in the cityscape due to its striking design and impressive stained-glass window. There may also be opportunity to visit some of Tromsø’s surrounding fjords and possibly the rugged island of Senja. 

Optional excursions
  • Dog Sledding in Winter Wonderland
    Join us on a mini polar expedition across the snowy Arctic landscape in the valley of Breivikeidet near Tromsø.
  • The Bucket List - Dogsledding, Ice Domes & Reindeer
    Enjoy dog sledding, magical ice domes and real-life reindeer on this all-in-one, ultimate bucket list tour of Tromsø.
  • Whale Watching in Arctic Silence
    Be immersed in Arctic serenity as you get an unforgettable view of orca and humpback whales playing in their natural habitat.
  • Tromsø, The Arctic Capital – Winter
    Explore the remarkable polar heritage, modern culture and extraordinary panoramic views of Tromsø, ‘Paris of the North’, in winter.
  • The Northernmost Brewery
    Let actors entertain you on this tour through Tromsø to Mack, long known as the northernmost brewery in the world.
  • Meet The Locals of Sommarøy
    Satisfy your curiosity about daily life north of the Arctic Circle as you meet the locals on Sommarøy.

DAY 9 : Honningsvåg

The northernmost point

Photo: Espen Mills

Arriving early in the morning, you’ll have a full day in Honningsvåg. The northernmost city on the mainland, Honningsvåg’s landscape is quite distinctive, with barely any trees or bushes. This far north, winters are long and snowfall is high, so get ready for some fantastic winter scenery and activities. 

Feel the snow crunching under your snowshoes as you hike across the plains. You might even be able to try your hand at ice fishing, a beloved winter tradition in the far north. Get a taste of the local delicacy, king crab, which is caught in the waters around Honningsvåg and served year-round. Admire local art in the Once Upon a Dream art gallery, and don’t miss the Honningsvåg Church. This is the oldest building in the area, dating back to 1885. 

The highlight of any trip to Honningsvåg is a visit to the North Cape. This is one of the northernmost points of mainland Europe, and as we’re visiting in winter, we can get there by snowmobile. Standing near the northern edge of Norway and looking out over the Barents Sea under the polar night sky is a truly special experience. Add the ethereal Northern Lights dancing in the sky above, and you’ve got a sight you’ll never forget. 

The cape is marked with a famous globe monument, which demands a selfie or two… or five. When you’re ready, head inside North Cape Hall to warm up, and learn about life in the High Arctic through a short film and a variety of exhibits. 

Having reached the northernmost point of our voyage, we’ll turn around and begin going south as we sail away in the evening. 

Optional excursions
  • North Cape and King Crab Experience - Winter
    From iconic views at North Cape to delicious king crab in Sarnes, join us as we experience the highlights of Honningsvåg in winter.
  • Quad Biking to North Cape
    Drive your own quad bike on a thrilling adventure to continental Europe’s northernmost point.
  • Culture Walk, Beer Tasting, and Local Show at 71°N
    Enjoy a tour of the town, handcrafted beers, and an exclusive play performed by young local actors about life in the Arctic.
  • Snowmobiling to North Cape
    Experience raw Arctic nature as your drive yourself on a thrilling snowmobile ride to the European mainland’s northernmost point.
  • Arctic Ice Fishing
    Take a short snowshoe walk to a nearby lake to try your hand at some ice-fishing before enjoying the taste of your freshly hooked and cooked catch of the day.

DAY 10 : Alta

The city of Northern Lights

Photo: Shutterstock

Alta is one of the bigger coastal towns we visit, with a population of over 10,000 people. A particularly famous part of the town is Alta River, one of Norway’s best salmon rivers. Here, large salmon are regularly caught, with some even weighing up to 24 kg. You won’t regret trying some fresh grilled salmon in one of the local restaurants. 

At 70 degrees north, this town is still far above the Arctic Circle. The area is known for particularly good Northern Lights visibility, so keep your camera ready. If the skies are clear and the conditions are right, you should be able to get some amazing shots of the lights dancing above you. 

You can learn more about this incredible natural light show on a guided tour of the town. The Northern Lights Cathedral even has an exhibition showing how Alta became the epicentre for ground-breaking research of the Aurora Borealis between the 19th and 20th centuries. 

Increased snowfall in the winter allows for some truly authentic Arctic excursions, like dogsledding. The snow and climate of Alta also creates the perfect conditions to build and maintain the Igloo Hotel, located on the banks of river Alta. 

You’ll have the chance to visit and tour the world’s northernmost ice hotel, built out of snow and ice every winter and carved with different artistic themes by local sculptors. Head to the hotel’s ice bar, decorated with handcrafted ice sculptures and order a drink in an ice glass – no ice cubes needed. 

Optional excursions
  • UNESCO Rock Art & Northern Lights Cathedral
    Peruse prehistoric rock art at Alta Museum and admire the stunning architecture of the city’s iconic cathedral.
  • Dog Sledding in Alta
    Go dog sledding through snowy scenery near The Northern Lights City and meet the enthusiastic dogs that pull you.
  • Dog Sledding on Wheels in Alta
    Try dog sledding on wheels through beautiful countryside near The Northern Lights City and meet the friendly dogs that pull you.
  • Visit The Magical Igloo Hotel in Alta
    Explore the beautiful Igloo Hotel, made entirely from snow and ice. Even your free drink comes in a glass carved from ice!

DAY 11 : Lødingen

Village life and fjord nature

Photo: Tracey Whitefoot / Alamy Stock Photo

The administrative centre of a municipality with the same name, Lødingen is a village on the southwestern shore of Hinnøya, with a population of under 2,000. This is a port that our ships used to visit on one of our earlier coastal routes and returning here is a kind of homecoming for us. 

We’ll dock at around midday, using Lødingen as a base for a few hours to explore more of Hinnøya island, Norway’s largest island south of Svalbard. Wander the streets near the port and admire the traditional red fishing huts, or rorbuer, that line the shore. As you walk, you’ll likely notice the calming atmosphere that village life brings. 

The highlight of this visit has to be the breathtaking fjords and mountains that the Norwegian coast is so famous for. Branching off of Andfjord, Gullesfjord cuts into the north side of Hinnøya, bordered by pristine mountain ranges. The area is popular among campers, who stay on the campsite or in cabins and fish for cod in the fjord during winter. 

From Lødingen, you can join a handful of optional excursions, including a fishing trip with a local, an immersive Sámi experience to learn more about their culture and history, or a visit to Dampskipsbrygga, Lødingen’s former wharf.

Optional excursions
  • Fishing with a Local
    Join the local fisherman for a fishing trip in the waters around Lødingen, perhaps with sea eagles flying overhead.
  • Steamship Wharf and the History of The Coastal Express
    Take a journey through time at Dampskipsbrygga, Lødingen’s former wharf which has been lovingly restored as an exhibition venue.
  • Sámi Handicrafts, Food, and Culture
    Spend some time with a local Sámi family and learn about their unique customs that have been passed down through the ages.

DAY 12 : Rørvik

An ancient fishing town

Photo: Shutterstock

Continuing south, we’ll leave the land of the Polar Night as we cross the Arctic Circle in the early hours of the morning.  

The Vikna archipelago is a chain of around 6,000 islands, islets and skerries. The largest of the chain, Inner-Vikna, is where we’ll make our next stop. We aim to dock at the port town of Rørvik around midday, remaining there for about a few hours.  

The town and its surrounding areas have a long history, with burial mounds found there that date back to ancient times. The area’s maritime legacy is well-documented across Rørvik’s many museums, particularly The Norwegian Coastal Museum.  

Similarly, at SalmoNor visiting centre, you can take a tour of a modern salmon farm and find out more about the Norwegian aquaculture industry that supplies the world with tasty Nordic salmon.  

Another major export is cod, and the town even has an annual Cod Festival in March. This species of fish is especially common in the waters of the archipelago during winter, so why not indulge yourself in some fresh cod cakes while here. 

Return to the ship in the late afternoon for your penultimate evening on board. Enjoy the ship’s facilities, such as the soothing panoramic sauna or sample some warming local aquavit in the top-deck bar. 

Optional excursions
  • Time Travel through the Coastal Town of Rørvik
    Get to know the history of Rørvik on this guided tour across three of the town’s key museums.

DAY 13 : Molde

Perfect panoramas

Photo: Madrugada Verde / Alamy Stock Photo

To round off our journey, we’ll visit Molde, the capital and commercial centre of Romsdalen that sits on the southern coast of the Romsdal Peninsula. We’ve stopped at this port many times before on our Coastal Express route, but this time we’ll be making a much longer stop, so you’ll have all the time you need to get your fill of the town. 

There are optional activities organised by your Coastal Experience Team that add to your experience of Molde. Accessible nearby on an optional excursion is the Atlantic Road, an icon of the Norwegian coast that often features in Hollywood movies. 

If the weather is favourable and time permits, join us on an optional hike up to Varden viewpoint for the best panoramic views of the area. Gaze at the town from above at a height of 402 metres above sea level and admire the 222 snowy peaks across Moldefjord.  

If you prefer to stay closer to the ground, you can pop into the Romsdal Museum, one of Norway’s largest folk museums about ten minutes away from the town centre.  

Back on the boat, we’ll end our voyage on a high note with an end-of-trip farewell dinner. Take this opportunity to trade photo highlights and experiences with your fellow travellers one last time. 

Optional excursions
  • The Atlantic Road - A Scenic Bus Tour from Molde
    Let us drive you along the swooping Atlantic Road, one of the most beautiful routes in the world.

DAY 14 : Bergen

Norway's second largest city

Photo: Shutterstock

From the south to the north, and back down to the south, reflect on your journey as you watch our approach to our last port of the voyage, Bergen, in the early morning. Say your goodbyes to the crew and disembark the ship, marking the end of your travels with us.  

You’ve sailed on The North Cape Express, exploring Norway’s coastal cities and villages all the way to the top of the European continent. During the journey, you’ll have experienced Norway’s varied climate, seen majestic mountains and fjords, and maybe gazed up in awe at the Northern Lights once or several times.  

We hope you’ll cherish each of the memories of The North Cape Express that you’ll take home with you. Come sail with us again soon, on another iconic voyage of our spectacular home: the Norwegian coast.

The day-by-day programme will give you a few ideas about what you can see and do on your voyage, but bear in mind that this itinerary is just an indication of what you can experience. After all, this is a sailing where the elements rule and weather conditions might vary, which is why every voyage with Hurtigruten is unique.
