We were tired of buses and trains, of planes and cars, so we signed ourselves up for the next best form of travel: A voyage on one of Norway’s Hurtigruten Ships.
This is no typical cruise line though. It’s far from a Disney cruise and even further from the Royal Caribbean experience. Every Hurtigruten is a working ship. They do not set sail for tourist’s amusement, these ships have places to be and people to see. The Hurtigruten welcomes guests onboard because the beauty of the Norwegian fjords and the western coastline are breathtaking and being on the water is a spectacular way to experience them.
Don’t get me wrong, there is plenty of entertainment but it comes in the form of natural beauty and being present in the world around you. You come to realize this side of the world is chillingly beautiful and we are all so lucky to be alive.
