HURTIGRUTEN`S 2014 NORWAY PREVIEW BROCHURE! “THE WORLD`S MOST BEAUTIFUL VOYAGE”

Hurtigruten, currently celebrating 120 years of service along Norway’s scenic fjord-indented west coast, has just released its 2014 Norway Preview Brochure – available online at www.Hurtigruten.us (click on Brochures link). The brochure, readable online or downloadable, details Hurtigruten’s Coastal Voyage — what Lonely Planet has named “The world’s most beautiful voyage,” along a route National Geographic Traveler has twice honored as the “Best destination in the world.” Descriptions of all excursions including new ones, information on Norway’s foods, sights and seasons, pricing, schedules and more are all within the 20 color pages. And Hurtigruten’s flexible pricing system now rewards those guests booking early – with up to 25% off normal fares. No deadlines for booking but as the ships fill the prices move back towards full fare. Fares for the six- to 12-day sailings in 2014 range from $1,311 to $17,559 per person, double, depending on length of voyage, season, cabin grade and time to departure.

A staple of Norwegian culture since 1893, Hurtigruten’s fleet of modern ships offers a unique glimpse into Norwegian culture as they transport guests and locals alike along Norway’s spectacular west coast, stopping at 34 ports of call between the cultural center of Bergen and Kirkenes, high above the Arctic Circle. The six-day southbound, seven-day northbound and 11- and 12-day roundtrips depart daily, year-round and present guests with an ever-changing landscape of small fishing villages in the rugged Lofoten Islands; Art Nouveau Ålesund, the medieval Viking capital of Trondheim; and Norway’s “Paris of the North,” Tromsø. So whether travelers are interested in “Hunting the Light,” which showcases the Aurora Borealis, take in the “Midnight Sun,” where the sun never sleeps, or enjoy the magical colors of the spring and fall, the options are near endless.

New excursions for 2014 include a boat trip to Munkholmen to explore 1,000 years of history; a wilderness adventure camp outing in Tromsø with reindeer driving, dog sledding and snowmobiles; learning from a Sami shaman about their use of nature’s “pantry and pharmacy”; and insight into the “Arctic Bushcraft,” learning how locals have harvested, stored, hunted and fished for centuries. With a total of 43 excursions, guests have more than enough to choose from and enjoy.

Hurtigruten’s 1893 Ambassador program is also a valuable add-on. This complimentary membership program for repeat guests offers 5% savings on cruise fares including already discounted fares, 5% savings on selected excursions, free welcome baskets in cabins, free bicycle usage on roundtrip sailings (up to three days) and a quarterly journal with exclusive offers.

Sailing aboard Hurtigruten ships means large, comfortable lounges with panoramic windows and wonderful views from large outdoor decks; open seating for most meals; authentic Norwegian cuisine designed with fresh seasonal ingredients and incredible seafood, complemented by a comprehensive wine list; multilingual tour directors; a range of comfortable cabin choices that includes large suites, some with private balconies; and a friendly and well-informed crew, ready to offer assistance and learned suggestions.

Fares subject to availability and include accommodation in cabin grade of choice; full board; a selection of complimentary items onboard for suites. Flights and transfers, optional excursions, and travel insurance are additional.

Hurtigruten is a world leader in expedition voyages, sailing to the most remote of destinations including Antarctica, Greenland and the Arctic’s Spitsbergen as well as year round along Norway’s coast and Europe in the spring and fall. The company’s fleet of 12 intimate ships, which each carry 100 to 646 guests, allows travelers to enjoy the scenery and culture of the destination in a relaxed atmosphere.
