Hurtigruten - MS Vesterålen

MS Vesterålen provides passengers an authentic heritage experience. In its exciting programme you will learn more about the ship´s maritime operations, logistics and hotel operations. You will get an opportunity to get closer to the Hurtigruten operation and to learn more about the operation along the Norwegian coast. The programme includes the following:

- Different topics every second day, related to Hurtigruten´s operations. Evening talks hosted by the ship´s tour leader, including interviews with different crew members who share their insights about work and life on board.

- A short film and/or presentation during the evening talk programme about the engine room, bridge, galley, cargo deck, and more.

- Practical courses within relevant topics, including "Learn to read and use marine charts" and "Make the Norwegian traditional dinner Fårikål". Due to limited capacity, these courses are available for a fee and can be booked on board .

- Operational and historical `points of interest´/ fun facts presented on deck along the sailing route.

- An exhibition about Hurtigruten´s history, ship design and construction, route planning, navigational facts and operational development.

- A logbook of the entire journey available for purchase at the end of the trip. 

MS Vesterålen will be refurbished at the end of 2019. All the common areas will get an upgrade, including the lounge and 'Fyret' bar. The refurbishment will take care to ensure that MS Vesterålen continues to provide passengers with an authentic heritage experience.

Ship Highlights

Hurtigruten ships are working vessels operating a regular service to a set timetable. The ships carry goods, vehicles and passengers between ports, by night and day, as an integral part of Norwegian daily life. The ships are calling at ports around the clock. You may expect some noise and vibration in a few cabins during loading of goods. This varies depending on the location of your cabin and the type of ship. Also, noise affects people differently and what may be a problem for one person may not be a problem for another. Please ask the reservation team for advice on the best cabin location for you.
