Dear adventurers the essence of Norway’s appeal is remark­ ably simple: this is one of the most beautiful countries on earth. Hurtigruten provides adventures that are unmistakably Norwegian, sailing under the Midnight Sun in summer and the Northern Lights during winter. With daily departures, our ships journey calmly through majestic fjords and call on small, remote ports in places most vessels are un­ able to reach. And we’ve been sailing here for 125 years. As we celebrate our anniversary in 2018, you will experience festivities on-board all our ships from April to December with special five-course dinners, lectures, and limited edition souvenirs.

along the route, you can choose from more than 90 excursions, and take part in hikes and ‘friluftsliv’ activities led by onboard expedition teams. These dedicated experts have a single mission: to enhance your experience by leading activities and interpreting the cultural and natural treasures you will see during your voyage. When you sail with us, you will not just observe – you will have the chance to truly interact with the landscape you sail through. These journeys are a treat for all your senses. Come and experience one of the most beautiful areas on the globe, and taste the chance to taste the fresh­est local specialities from Norwegian artisans. This might be why so many guests

from home and abroad sail with us. They want the original. They want to go where no one else goes, with a crew and a ship that belongs there. They want to experience and learn from guides who truly know this coast, who have Norway in their DNA. we have been sailing the Norwegian coast since 1893, but we are still exploring and renewing ourselves. Sustainability is given top priority in Hurtigruten, and we have already modified several vessels for shore power. Our fleet has an optimal vessel size for exploration cruises, with all the necessary manoeuvrability, power and capacity. We take pride in bringing you safely and comfort­ ably to amazing destinations based on a sustainable way of operating. i invite you to join us for an adventure filled with spectacular nature and active experiences. And become a part of the local life of Norway, to take part in our 125th anniversary celebration – and to connect with your inner explorer.

a day like no OTHER 6


People who live along Norway’s coastline travel to the same places time and again. If you ask what draws them back, their answer may be surprising. The view is never the same – there’s always something new to see. It’s as simple as that! Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder. But more than the views, the Norwegian coast also tickles the taste buds of those who know that even the air tastes different along this fabled coast. Where some complain about the changeability of the weather, others appreciate the variety. There’s radiance in early morning sunshine melting the frost, and elation on warm evenings when the party never stops. Yet, there is as much joy in rain as it lashes your face and renews your senses, and intrigue in mysterious,

foggy mornings when land seems to leap out of nowhere. So what’s the best weather? And when’s the best time to visit? There are no simple answers to these questions. See black clouds hang over the mountains, heavy with the fresh snow of winter. That same snow lingering on peaks when springtime arrives, and vibrant meadows beneath steep rocky walls when the spring flowers bloom. White summer nights that famously never end… You will want to come back to the same place, but that place will never be exactly the same. Every day is like no other!

My father,

Expected A chance to see Norway off the beaten track. The ships visit small towns and places that other cruise lines miss [1]. Unexpected Long-lasting Northern Lights [7]. On one ­occasion, it began around 7pm and didn’t stop until 6am. I went to bed at 3am, half frozen but very happy.

ROBERTO DI TRANI Italy TRAVELLED WITH: My girlfriend Annicken and our 10-month-old daughter Tindra FROM:

Expected We looked forward to see the whole coastline of Norway from the seaside. I knew some of the west coast from before, but little of the north [4]. Unexpected I was surprised how relaxing it was to be on a ship for so many days. I felt very taken care of. It was almost meditative. [5].

YANN BOUGARAN France TRAVELLED WITH: My wife, Martine FROM:

Expected The beauty of Lofoten. I had been to Lofoten once before and I wanted to see more of this specific part of the country. I went on this trip for the opportun­ity to take ­ hotographs. p Unexpected Eagles [2]! Many of the excursions offered were truly amazing, but my favourite was the sea eagle safari. Also, my concerns about being stuck on a cruise ship totally vanished as soon as I entered the ship. This was due to the staff on board – I felt like I was a part of the family’.

STEFANIE BLOHM Germany TRAVELLED WITH: My best friend FROM:

Expected I was looking forward to discovering the Norwegian fjords and coast [6]. Unexpected That the ships sail very close to the coastline and that they visit small and quaint places [3]. Another surprise was the food – everything that was served on board the ship was really outstanding.

How do you bring home memories from a Hurtigruten trip in the best possible way? Imagine for a second that you’re already on the ship, with your state-of-the-art camera. It does a lot of things; measures, adjusts and enhances. But there’s one thing it doesn’t do. Your camera isn’t the photographer. You are.

Stian Klo waiting for that perfect photo moment.

S

o, how do you get the best photos? How can you let your friends back home best see a glimpse of what you have experienced? Let’s hear from esteemed local photo­grapher, Stian Klo. Born and raised in Harstad, he knows just about every square metre of Lofoten. His pictures have been published worldwide for such companies as Apple, Instagram, National Geographic and the BBC. NATURE ON MY DOORSTEP

`I’m very fortunate to literally have nature on my doorstep. For me, it’s a dream to be able to work up here. No two days are alike,´ Stian says. `Sailing with Hurtigruten along the coast of Norway, it is all about the light, or the absence of it. Nothing remains the same for long. The light colours the landscape and villages in a thousand different shades; it wraps them in darkness, or lights them up; it makes them glow in the sunset or throws long, dark shadows towards the shore. From the Hurtigruten ships, you have a great opportunity to experience all of this!´ he enthuses.

––– Growing up surrounded by this raw and untouched landscape has nurtured in me a deep affection and respect for our precious planet. Stian Klo

--------- `LAND OF THE MIDNIGHT SUN´ truly lives up to its name from May to July. The intense extended daylight above the Arctic Circle persists around the clock, making every Norwegian ‘night’ a joy to behold. This natural phenomenon is found in latitudes north of the Arctic Circle, where the sun stays above the horizon for 24 hours.

THE LIGHT OF THE ETERNAL SUN

`In summer, there are endless hiking possibilities for those feeling adventurous, and it might surprise you to hear that there are pristine sandy beaches to explore in Arctic Norway. It never gets dark, and even at night you can see the sun hanging like a blazing beacon on the horizon, barely grazing the ocean before it begins to rise again. It might make you feel a bit ‘jet-lagged’ but most of all, you simply feel happy and grateful that you have experienced it,´ Stian says. The Midnight Sun only occurs north of the Arctic Circle between May and July. That means you can see it along much of Hurtig­ ruten’s route in the summer. `Backlit pictures with the Midnight Sun can be challenging

because you have bright light and shadows at the same time. The trick is to measure the light in the lighter mid tones, not in the highlights nor the shadows,´ Stian advises. THREE SEASONS IN ONE GO

`When it comes to light and great photo opportunities, I’ll let you in on a secret: April! No other time of the year has as much raw nature. The light is never as clear and bright, but you see white mountains against the deep blue fjords. The days are long, but you still have some dramatic red sunsets. There are great differences between the southern and northern parts of Norway at this time of the year, making a trip with Hurtig­ruten a smorgasbord of contrasts for

photographers. You might travel from a summer climate in Bergen, through spring further north, and into full winter in Kirkenes, where you can still participate in the winter excursions. `Your pictures will feel like months of travel, not a couple of days,´ Stian says enthusiastically. `Whatever you do, don’t leave the deck when it rains,´ he urges. `Rain and hail are actually great conditions for a good photo! If it’s raining or snowing at night, you can leave your flash on and use a slow shutter camera app on your smartphone to create streaks. Overcast days can create interesting cloud patterns in the sky, so don't just stay indoors even when the weather isn't perfect.´

STIAN’S TIPS ON HOW TO TAKE THE

best photos

STATE-OF-THE-ART cameras or the ubiquitous smartphone? Stian could go on for hours about technical details for taking good photos. The most important rule is to understand a few visual basic precepts: COMPOSITION. Travelling along the coast, you have plenty of motifs, but a picture stands or falls by its composition. RULE OF THIRDS. This standard rule perceives images as divided into nine equal parts by two horizontal lines and two vertical lines. Accord-

The Hurtigruten

ing to the rule, the important ele-

CULTURAL SAILINGS

ments in the composition should be placed along these lines or at their intersections. OFF CENTRE. Scientific studies have identified that when looking at images, viewers´ eyes are usually more naturally drawn to one of the line intersections rather than the centre of the image.

In spring, you can join special cultural sailings that focus on the music, culture, art and history of Norway. With several on-board activities and unique excursions included, these voyages provide you with an authentic insight to Norwegian culture that few can offer.

TILT OR NOT TILT. Generally speaking, avoid tilting the horizon in a photograph. It can be annoying to look at and it’s not really dynamic. If

you want to tilt the horizon, make it clear it’s intentional. FROM A DISTANCE. Photo­graphing from a distance, your picture may end up with nothing but background. Try using perspec­tive by including something in the foreground with a familiar size, like people, ships or houses. VANTAGE POINTS. Last, but not least, get to know the ship by walking around. Find the sweet spots. Look for options. A good composition is often about moving into the right place.

––– Autumn is perfect. Watch the coastline shift colours from one season to another.

Icy blue sky.

COLOURS OF THE COAST

`And then there is autumn, when you can watch the coastline shift colours from one season to another over the course of a single day. This is also a great time for photography. The clear air enhances the red and yellow hues that fill the mountainsides, hilltops and woods. From a photographic perspective, the scenery is perfect, framed by an icy blue sky and the sprinklings of early snow on the highest peaks. The darkness comes gradually and the sun sets earlier and earlier. If you are lucky, the Northern Lights will appear and perform their act of visual magic,´ Stian muses. `The easiest way to optimise the subjects of your photo is to think carefully about

lighting in the shot. If you want a photo from your ship to have the depth of colours you see in holiday brochures, take the picture on the sunny side of the ship. Alternatively, if you want to catch the glistening of light on the ocean, take the photo when the sun is low enough to bounce off the waves.´ DEEP BLUE ARCTIC LIGHT

`During the polar nights, the sun completely disappears below the horizon, and only a vague glimmer of light separates day from night. As a photographer, I really love this “blue hour” – it is the short period of time on winter afternoons when the whole landscape appears bathed in a deep blue colour. In win-

ter, because the light changes, the scenery changes too. If you stay out on deck for 30 minutes, the ocean, the mountains, the sky, and the landscape change completely.´ `Low light can be tricky to photograph, so capture your images in the RAW format. This provides you the greatest flexibility in post-production and allows you to easily fix problems that would otherwise be harder, if not impossible, to correct if shooting in JPEG. Bring along extra memory cards to accommodate the increased image file size,´ Stian suggests.

––– It´s like a canvas of light being pulled across the sky, and the silence of this astral phenomenon can be really quite eerie.

THE MAGICAL NORTHERN LIGHTS

`Winter comes, and so do the Northern Lights. It is like a canvas of light being pulled across the sky, and the silence of this astral phenomenon can be really quite eerie. Sailing with Hurtigruten provides the best chances to experience this magical light show as you are out at sea, far from the light pollution common on land. Even though I have seen the Northern Lights many, many times, I am still mesmerised every time I see this natural light phenomenon, especially when reflected in the waves below,´ Stian says.

Tripods will come in handy.

Arctic light is perfect for natural light portraits.

Scenery may change in seconds. Be prepared.

16

The Northern Lights are a breathtaking experience, but most pictures tend to look alike.


`When you are planning to photograph the Northern Lights on a Hurtigruten ship, there are a few key elements to think about. You’ll already be away from the ambient light on land, but try and get away from any source of light pollution or crowds out on the ship’s decks. Since the ship is moving, you need to use a sturdy tripod or mono-­pod and a fast lens. Use a high ISO value in order to keep the shutter speeds as fast as possible; set your lens to infinity focus and fire away. If the image is too dark, increase the shutter speed or ISO value until you are happy with the exposure.´ `Lastly, if you are shooting on the deck of a moving boat – do not be afraid of bump-

ing up the ISO value to maintain the fastest shutter speed that your camera allows.´ If you are anything like me, I would rather have a sharp image with a little bit of “noise” in it, than an unsharp image. The reason why is simple: I can easily remove “noise” from the image when post-processing. This is very important if you are photographing wildlife. If your camera or lens has an IS feature, be sure to use it when you are shooting handheld. This will result in sharper images and in the end, a happy photographer,´ Stian concludes.

STIAN’S TOP NORTHERN LIGHTS

photography tips Bring a tripod. Battling with the Arctic climate, high sea or winds, you will need a really sturdy tripod. For extended exposures on deck, a tripod is a must!

It’s vital that your camera, lenses, and filters are clean. Keep at least one cloth in every jacket so you can clean anything swiftly. Storing everything in a water-resistant

side – and Northern Norway quite often is – batteries lose their charge much quicker, even when inactive. Keep your spare batteries within your clothing rather than any bags, as your body heat will keep them “alive” much longer.

FOR SMARTPHONE USERS I recommend using earplugs for shutter release. If you plug them in and open the camera app and press the volume button, you’ll be able to take photos without physically touching the phone, thus creating less camera shake and increasing the chances of getting a sharp image.

Download the “Slow Shutter Cam” app in the App store. By default, smartphones do not support long­ exposure photography, but with this app there’s a way around it. Open the app and make sure to go into settings and set picture quality to the highest position and turn on the volume shutter position and turn on the volume shutter.

´I am in great awe when working with local Norwegian suppliers, because they are so passionate about their produce. Meeting them, hearing their stories and knowing that these are crafted products of exceptionally high quality makes me proud and humble. Holding such ingredients, each with their unique imperfections and characteristics makes our job extra enjoyable,´ says Larsen. ´Visiting 34 ports along Norway´s coast provides the perfect opportunity to source fresh produce from local suppliers every few hours and certainly every day. At 15 of our ports of call, we receive seafood, eggs, poultry, dairy products, mustard, syrup, salt, mushrooms, berries and vegetables. Everything is delivered directly on board the ships, which significantly reduces food miles and optimises the use of port facilities,´ he continues. ´Fresh local food enhances the travel experience, generates

positive ripple effects in the local communities and inspires great stories about the places we visit. Imagine sitting in the restaurant eating lamb while we sail past the meadows where the sheep had grazed. The story behind the food is part of the culinary experience. For example, during autumn we serve cloudberries out on deck. A lady in Finnmark handpicks these berries and delivers them to our ships. Experiences don’t get more real than this. You also have the possibility to buy some of these products in our on-board shop and take them home with you. This way, the experience lasts longer – and that is what Hurtigruten is all about,´ Larsen says smiling.

HOSTS OF THE COAST Sailing with Hurtigruten, you don’t just observe the coast – you will understand and become a part of the landscape through which you sail.

The dedicated expedition team has one mission: to enhance your experience by involving you and interpreting the nature, wildlife, culture and natural phenomena you see during your voyage. Get the spirit of the places you visit Through guiding, storytelling and lectures, as well as excursions, hikes and ‘friluftsliv’ activities, the on-board expedition team will enthusiastically share their knowledge and passion. Enjoy learning more about subjects such as biology, history, geo­logy, culture and science in an entertaining and informal way. These ‘coastal aficionados’ are handpicked for their local expertise and specific know­ledge in relevant fields. They will also be taking you to all the best spots and interesting sites along the coast, most of them way off the beaten track. From 2018, nine out of our 11 ships along the Norwegian coast have an Expedition Leader, an expedition team and special activities on board like lectures and presentations, guiding out on deck, gatherings and environmental actions. These ships function as a ‘base camp’ – the place where you sleep, eat and share experiences – and they are the starting point for all our onshore activities.

20

Making the inaccessible accessible During the summer months, you can join our explorer boats for guided nature and culture tours to sites of special interest in the area around Tromsø and Trondheim. These are special small boats that are made to bring you close to the coast and let you explore hidden, less accessible places, all in the spirit of ‘friluftsliv’ and adventure. See Norway through the native eyes of the expedition team. Together with their guidance, you share in new adventures, get closer and deeper into Norway´s physical and cultural landscapes, and create personal stories you will remember forever.

Friluftsliv – the Norwegian longing to be outdoors

happier outdoors. You might say the need to be close to nature is part of the Norwegian DNA. So much so that ‘friluftsliv’ pervades all Hurtigruten activities. We want to show you what Norwegians love, and hope you will experience at least a touch of that happiness on our excursions, maybe when sitting around a campfire, hiking a trail, or even just by enjoying a cup of coffee or tea together. We cannot guarantee good weather, but we can guarantee a genuine Norwegian outdoor experience! We want to inspire you with that same sense of ‘friluftsliv’ when you join our expedition team. The purpose of our activities is not only about lectures and facts about local history, but the activity itself. Enjoy the sensation of being outdoors – feeling, smelling, listening and being completely in the moment.

© ØRJAN BERTELSEN

There is something you should know about Norwegians – they deeply yearn to be outdoors. A backpack, sleeping bag, fishing rod and tent are among a Norwegian´s basic possessions, enabling them to live fully in Norway´s outstanding nature. This passion for the outdoors has a name: ‘friluftsliv’, which can best be described as anything to do with outdoor living and connecting with Mother Nature on both a physical and spiritual level. The concept is as important to Norwegians as samba is to Brazilians, sauna to Finns and pasta to the Italians. Why? Because they are brought up to believe they will be

Hurtigruten Young Explorer Give the children a sense of what it is like to be a real explorer in Norway’s beautiful and untouched surroundings. Children aged 7-13 can take part in our complimentary Young Explorers programme along the Norwegian coast on MS Finnmarken all year.

A dedicated host on board will plan and organise all the activities, which focus on fun and eco-friendly learning, tailor-made to awaken their sense of adventure. Kids will get a deeper understanding of nature, climate and culture, and be introduced to topics related to wildlife, local food, environmental protection and famous explorers. There will be daily on-board activities for the Young Explorers, related to the different topics.

THE WORLD’S MOST BEAUTIFUL VOYAGE – day by day

––––– THE ITINERARY IS SET, but you can make it your own. Each departure with Hurtigruten is a purposeful voyage providing a lifeline to the coastal communities, while exploring stunning fjords, UNESCO World Heritage sites, wildlife and nature along the more than 1,000 miles of Norway’s pristine coastline. A ship leaves Bergen each and every day throughout the year. While each voyage sails to a fixed schedule, you still have several ways to make it an adventure just for you.

25


The journey begins

––– Hurtigruten’s Classic Round Voyage lasts 12 days and starts at our southernmost port, Bergen. Before departing, why not arrange some extra time to explore one of Norway's most beautiful and distinctive cities. We cruise north from Bergen along the Hjeltefjord, the same route the Vikings once sailed to the Shetland Islands and beyond. We are heading to the high north. After a tasty dinner, you can spend the rest of the evening relaxing, taking in the ever-changing landscapes on deck or in the panorama lounge. 26

UNESCO and Bryggen

Bergen is a popular destination for modernday travellers in Norway, yet retains much of its local character and history. One example is the historic UNESCO-listed Bryggen district with colourful wharfs dating back to the 14th century. Stroll through the narrow alleyways and soak up the medieval maritime atmosphere.

Land adventures

Lively fish market

Even before your voyage starts, explore more of Norway. We offer a variety of packages at our main ports across coastal Norway. ‘Norway in a Nutshell’ starts in Bergen and takes you to some of the most magnificent scenery in the region with breathtaking fjords, rural villages and the spectacular Flåm Mountain Railway. These land adventures are great ways to complement your voyage and see more of inland Norway.

Bergen’s famous fish ­market is a lively place, brimming with fresh seafood from Norwegian waters. The bustle of fishermen offloading their catch, the fascinating variety of fish and crustaceans, the kaleidoscope of colours and the familiar salty fragrance of the sea combine to create a heady atmosphere.

Bergen

WHAT TO SEE BRYGGEN: Experience medieval history among the old Hanseatic buildings. THE FLØIBANEN FUNICULAR: Enjoy spectacular views of the city from atop Mount Fløyen. FANTOFT STAVE CHURCH: Explore ancient

You won’t find a better view of Bergen than from atop Mt. Fløyen. Few cities in the world can boast a cityscape nestled between seven mountains and the sea. Ride the Fløibanen Funicular from the city to the summit. Another good option is taking the cable car, or hiking, to the top of 643-metre high Mt. Ulriken for a more expansive view of the city and surrounding area.

MORE THAN A MEAL On board the ship, you can pamper your taste buds. We sail right over one of the world’s most abundant sources of seafood – the Norwegian Sea. Using fresh seasonal ingredients, our chefs create delicious threecourse dinners and bountiful buffets. We cooperate with local purveyors all along the Norwegian coast and inland Norway, so that nature’s pantry is fully stocked with delicacies. Come and taste Norway’s Coastal Kitchen.

Silence of the fjords

––– Wake up early to see Hornelen (860 metres above sea level) and the landscape of Nordfjord. As we sail past the West Cape, we cross the open sea for the first time during the voyage. The ship navigates through skerries and islands before reaching the Art Nouveau town of Ålesund. In summer, we sail towards what is often considered to be Norway’s jewel in the crown, Geiranger­fjord, surrounded by majestic mountain peaks, steep cliffs and cascading waterfalls. In autumn, we explore the idyllic Hjørundfjord - only Hurtigruten sails into this gem of a fjord. 28


Day 2 – Northbound

FLORØ–MOLDE The jewel in the crown 2B

We set our course for the spectacular UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord, passing sheer 800-metre high cliffs and impressive waterfalls en route. Our excursion starts by driving up Ørneveien (the Eagle Road). From the top, there is a magnificent view over the fjord itself. We then continue to serene Eidsdal, from where you can enjoy a picturesque ferry ride to Linge. Back on dry land, the excursion continues into wild, high-­alpine areas. One of the many highlights of this trip is the drive down the winding Trollstigen Pass, renown for its 11 hairpin bends. This day of great experiences concludes with dinner in Molde, before continuing on your Hurtigruten expedition.

Sognefjord

After it was destroyed by fire in 1904, Ålesund was rebuilt in the fashionable Art Nouveau style of the era. The beautiful buildings are well preserved. Climb the 418 steps to the top of Mount Aksla right in the centre of the town. On the way up, you’ll see the statue of the Viking King Gange Rolv. Several sources say Gange Rolv might be the mysterious Viking who became the Duke of Normandy known as Rollo, an ancestor of William the Conqueror.

In autumn, we explore Hjørundfjord, situated amidst the unspoiled nature of the majestic Sunnmøre Alps and populated with tiny haml­ets and mountain farms. The highly popular Hjørundfjord region is regarded as a national treasure, but the fjord itself is something of a secret, left out of all other tourist routes. We sail past steep rock walls, green meadows and isolated mountain farms – all offering a window to the past. Off the beaten track, you discover a fjord treasured by royalty. No wonder this is known to be one of the most beautiful fjords in the world!

Join a pleasant hike and visit an old shieling, where you can learn about farming and taste local delicacies. Once we reach the shieling, our hosts tell us about life on the farm in the past. You then have time to explore the site on your own, and sample locally produced delicacies.

A gothic ­cathedral

© THELMA FENDLER

Nidaros Cathedral is Norway’s most famous church, and the only one built in the Gothic style. Built over the burial place of St. Olav, the patron saint of Norway, the construction of this enormous building started as far back as the 1100s.

Discover the old capital

The city is home to Norway’s national shrine, Nidaros ­ athedral, which has been a popular pilgrimage destinaC tion for nearly 1,000 years. Today, it is a city of students, technology, culture, cycling and food. Trondheim’s architecture and surroundings create a beautiful, almost mystical atmosphere for any outing, whether you prefer a guided tour of Nidaros Cathedral, kayaking on the River Nid and into the city’s smaller channels, or a casual walk or bicycle ride among the beautifully restored wooden buildings in the Bakklandet district. 30

© REBOURS

––– Trondheim, formerly called Nidaros, was founded in 997 A.D. and was Norway’s capital from 1030 to 1217. The lighthouse

Kjeungskjær Lighthouse is located on a tiny island – and we pass it on our way north. This red brick, octagonal lighthouse is 20.6 metres tall. Built in 1880, it was automated in 1987. The light is lit from July 21 until May 16. The Midnight Sun makes the light unnecessary during the interim period.

Crossing an invisible border ––– Today we cross the Arctic Circle. This invisible border at 66 degrees 33 minutes north marks the southernmost point of the Midnight Sun, which shines 24 hours a day in summer. The chances of catching the Northern Lights in winter are also higher above this line. This is where the Arctic begins. Norway’s second largest glacier, Svartisen, is located near the old trading village and port of call Ørnes. Our journey continues along the beautiful Helgeland coastline, considered by many to be just as spectacular as Lofoten. In the afternoon, we sail from Bodø across Vestfjord, and the 1,000 metre-high mountain Lofot­veggen appears on the horizon. Then we reach Lofoten. For part of the year, we also sail into the amazingly narrow Trollfjorden. 32

Rorbu

You find ‘rorbuer’ all along the coast, at the water’s edge and often built atop sturdy timber piles. These fishermens´ cabins are reminders of a time in the past, when exhausted, cold fishermen tied their boats up at the wharf, offloaded their fishing gear and found a place to sleep for the night. Many of these cabins now serve as cafés and tiny restaurants or are rented out as accommodation.

You can also have fun while dog sledging, hiking and learning about Norway’s fascinating polar history. Or join us for a kayaking excursion where you can admire this beautiful Arctic city from a waterborne point of view. 34

Giants of the sea

The whale has a mystical place in literature, has been hunted to the brink of extinction, and has been the object of genuine fascination by seafarers and adventurers all over the world. With Hurtigruten, you may encounter whales while sitting on deck in the fjords of Northern Norway, on a silent whale exploring excursion or even from a kayak – an outing as close to the water you can possibly get without actually jumping in.

Explorer boat activities

In Tromsø, you can join the expedition team and explore the coast from an even closer range. Our on-board experts share their first-hand knowledge about wildlife, natural phenomena, history and landscapes – and pursue adventurous detours when opportunities arise along the route.

The polar night occurs when the sun does not rise above the horizon. This only occurs above the polar circle in Norway, and this far north there are almost two months of polar nights during winter. Even though the sun remains below the horizon, Northern Norway is not blacked out completely – there is a gloriously eerie blue shade to the skies, and on clear days, we can see beautiful sunset colours in the south while the sky to the north is a deep midnight blue.

ØKSFJORD–BERLEVÅG

Essential to Sámi culture and life, reindeer provide everything from clothes to food and are kept in herds that are moved long distances across vast areas of land to the rhythm of changing seasons.

Cultural influence

In Kirkenes, the road signs are written in both Norwegian and Russian.

From almost Russia with love

––– Kirkenes is known as the capital of the Barents Region and is the gateway to the east. The town is also Hurtigruten’s turning point of our 12-day voyage. You notice that the landscape and sea along the coast of Finnmark become increasingly more dramatic the closer we come to Kirkenes, which is located just a few miles from the Russian border.

A hotel made of snow 7D

If you are here in winter, we recommend a visit to the Kirkenes Snowhotel. Snow is actually a very good insulator, so when it drops to minus thirty degrees Celsius outside, the interior of the Snowhotel remains at a stable minus four degrees. Each room is decorated with beautiful sculptures of ice and snow and equipped with everything needed for a comfortable night. Your mattress is well insulated, and your Arctic sleeping bag will keep you warm and cosy.

WHAT TO SEE Kirkenes, not far from the Russian border, is Hurtigruten’s turning point. Enjoy panoramic views from the lounge as we sail into the last port before turning around and starting our journey south.

EXCURSIONS Midnight Sun

A delightful natural phenomenon occurs in summer. The Midnight Sun is when the sun is above the horizon all day and all night. For some areas in Northern Norway, we are talking about more than 1,800 hours in a row where the sun just does not set.

Don’t blink, it’s Lofoten ––– Make sure you do not oversleep today. The journey past the beautiful Vesterålen islands towards the equally spectacular Lofoten is, for many, the highlight of the trip. Between Sortland and Stokmarknes, you can see the famous mountain Møysalen, which has inspired numerous artists over the years. As we sail south through Vester­ålen, we seemingly head straight for the mountain wall, but there is an opening, Raftsundet, leading to the narrow and bewitching Trollfjord, which we sail into during certain parts of the year. We end the day with activities in Svolvær, the capital of Lofoten: sea eagle safari, fishing and RIB boat rides, horseback riding and more. 42

TROMSØ–STAMSUND

Excursions in Lofoten

Tromsø

This is the perfect place for adventure and exploration. In Svolvær, you can choose between several seasonal excursions. Enjoy a trip out to the Lofoten Islands where you can visit small fishing villages, or join a guided walk around the idyllic area of Svinøya. Hop aboard a local fishing boat and try your luck against the big cod. If you want an adrenaline rush, join a RIB excursion around the fantastic Lofoten archipelago. In this high-speed adventure, you get to see a lot of Lofoten, including a magnificent lagoon with a stunning, secluded beach. Or maybe you would rather choose a quiet horse ride through Lofoten´s breathtaking scenery.

Risøyhamn is a small village on the island of Andøya. We stop here to drop off passengers – and to deliver food and post to the locals, numbering approximately 200 inhabitants. Delivering food, money and medicines has been an important task for Hurtigruten for 125 years, and an invaluable service to the communities living along Norway’s coast.

As we sail through the strait, you see picturesque villages still inhabited as well as those abandoned long ago, a beautiful cemetery island and small white beaches. We then come to the mouth of Trollfjord, the two-kilometre-long, 100-metre-wide fjord. Weather permitting, we venture in… of all the experiences with Hurtig­ ruten, don’t forget your camera!

Sailing through Vesterålen to Lofoten should be at the top of the list of things to do for every traveller and explorer. The beauty here is unparalleled.

Torghatten (258 metres above sea level) is famous for the distinctive hole right through the middle of the mountainside. The hole is 160 metres long, 35 metres high and 20 metres wide and was created during the ice age. The softer rock gradually eroded, while harder rock around the hole remained. The walk up to the hole takes about 20 minutes along a natural trail.

In the morning, we cross the Arctic Circle and head for the Helgeland coast with its abundance of islands, islets, reefs and steep mountain walls. This is the home of the unique rock formation Hestmannen, the peculiar mountain Torghatten with its distinctive hole, and the spectacular Seven Sisters mountain range. We make a short stop in Nesna, an idyllic old trading post, before moving on to Sandnessjøen, Brønnøysund and Rørvik.

The UNESCO award was in recognition of the unique interaction between the eider duck and the island population during the nesting season. Learn how fishermen and farmers have maintained sustainable living for 1,500 years, and how the women have contributed to eiderdown harvesting.

Cod liver oil tasting

The day starts early and crossing the Arctic Circle at 66 ° 33’ N is an important ‘rite of passage’ as we now leave the Arctic north and Midnight Sun behind. We celebrate this with a ceremony out on deck. Close your eyes, open your mouth and take a spoonful of cod liver oil. Nothing is healthier or more beneficial than this. If you’re good and swallow every drop, you get to keep the spoon.

The Seven Sisters Seven beautiful mountaintops along the Helgeland coast are the source of a local legend. The story goes that there were seven troll sisters, the daughters of king Suliskongen who kept them under strict control. One night when he fell into a deep sleep, the seven maidens managed to sneak out. Vågekallen, who was eager for a wife, was lying in wait. He chased the sisters, who fled southwards down the coast. Several other trolls joined the chase to either capture or rescue them. When night turned to morning, the troll sisters and their pursuers were petrified as the sun turns all trolls to stone. They all became the rocks and mountains that today make the Helgeland coastline one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Next stop is Kristiansund. The city’s location has provided the town with a wealth of opportunities in the fishing, ship building and oil industries. It is now regarded as Norway’s ’cured cod capital’ because of its long-time export of salted dry fish. As we cross the open sea to Molde, known as the ’city of roses’, you can take in the view of the steep, grey, pointed peaks of the Romsdal Alps from deck.

––– Today gives you another opportunity to explore the city of Trondheim. Continuing south, the ship heads slowly out of the Trondheimsfjord, passing the islands of Munkholmen, Hitra and thousands of islets and skerries.

‘Cliff-fish’

As we sail along the coast, you’ll realise the importance of fish to Norwegian coastal communities. In Norwegian, dried cod is called ‘klippfisk’, literally ‘cliff-fish’. The name comes from the traditional practice of drying the cod outdoors, often on cliffs and other bare rock faces. You’ll see many of these ‘fish racks’ during your voyage.

But before we dock in Bergen, there are still a few nautical miles of fascinating scenery left, like picturesque Nordfjord that lies below the enormous glacier Jostedalsbreen. Nordfjord stretches 90 kilometres inland from the open sea, all the way to the tiny villages of Loen and Olden. The rugged landscape at the mouth of the fjord is in stark contrast to the fertile landscape at the other end. Lush orchards and glacier arms reach out towards sparkling lakes and cascading waterfalls. Enjoy this beautiful sight and be sure to make the most of the last hours on board. 48

The Northern Lights Promise

No trip to the Arctic Circle during winter is really complete without experiencing the wonder of the Northern Lights.

56


For many people, seeing the Northern Lights is the main reason for their trip so choosing the holiday that offers the best chances of witnessing the drama of the dancing lights is all important. In fact, Hurtigruten is so sure that the Northern Lights will make an appearance on your 12-day voyage with us that we’re even prepared to back that up with our unique Northern Lights Promise:

FREE 6 or 7-day

Hunting the Lights ...the Hurtigruten way ■■

On a Hurtigruten voyage, we are constantly ‘hunting the light’. You'll be sailing within the Auroral Oval which offers better and more chances of catching this mesmerising light show than land-based trips.

■■

You’ll be best placed to see the Aurora Borealis in its full glory on board Hurtigruten's smaller, low-lit ships along the sheltered Norwegian coast and, without the disruption of artificial ambient light.

■■

Enjoy unparalleled views of the Northern Lights from the comfort of the ship’s observation decks or inside the ship’s panoramic lounge with floor-to-ceiling windows.

■■

Our on-board Northern Lights announcements will advise you as soon as there’s a sighting so there’s no chance of you missing them.

Leaving a smaller footprint ––––– we strive to go beyond simply doing business in compliance with rules and regulations. Our ambition is to champion sustainable travel to polar waters in the most ethical manner possible. Being world leader in exploration travel bears a great responsibility to protect nature. Travelling is an intrinsic part of modern life and has an environmental impact – every trip leaves a footprint. Acknowledging this is the first crucial step to sustainability. Hurtigruten actively minimises its impact on the natural environment through numerous measures. Since 2009, we have launched various energy-saving programmes and continuously introduce new projects to reduce our emissions. We run a fleet of 13

64

expedition vessels, purpose-built for operations along the Norwegian coast, Antarctica, South America/Amazonas and in Arctic waters. Our present energy-saving measures have helped reduce annual emissions to 540 tonnes NOx and 18,000 tonnes CO2. Our environmental policy states that no heavy fuel is permitted onboard. Our vessels operate on the lighter fuel types SDM/MGO only. We want to be a global front-runner and set new precedents in green shipping.

We value cooperation with local communities, who in turn welcome our guests visiting the Norwegian coast and polar regions. In operating ethically and sustaining the waters in which we sail, we not only contribute to collective prosperity, but we form the very lifeblood of thriving coastal communities.

and our visit is fondly welcomed by the friends and family of our crew. We have been doing this every day for 125 years and these are the moments that no other Norwegian voyage can recreate. When a point of interest is about to occur (perhaps a stretch of coastline, a particular building or special scenic sight or even a dazzling display of the Northern Lights), an announcement will be made over the tannoy, ensuring you have enough time to head out on deck to experience it yourself.

MS Spitsbergen is named after Norway’s Arctic pearl – the largest island in the Svalbard Archipelago that sits between Norway and the North Pole. Hurtigruten has a long history of travelling to this remote destination, starting back in 1896 with its ‘Sports Route’. MS Spitsbergen sails along the Norwegian coast from September to May, and becomes part our international Explorer expedition voyages the rest of the year. After complete reconstruction, MS Spitsbergen re-joined the Hurtigruten fleet in 2016. The new ship features high technical and hospitality standards with comfortable, modern public areas and cabins. Her fresh, Scandinavian design reflects a colour palette derived from the sea. She is sleek and environmentally friendly and continuously undergoes improvements to reduce emissions and fuel consumption. The ship’s optimal size and manoeuvrability make her highly suitable for exploring polar waters. MS Spitsbergen also has her own on-board expedition team, dedicated to enhancing your experience by engaging you and interpreting the nature, wildlife, culture and history encountered during your voyage along the Norwegian coast.

On board MS Finnmarken, you will find Hurtigruten´s distinctive informal style combined with a bit of luxury. Starting 1 April 2018, MS Finnmarken will also have her own on-board expedition team. Join the team inside and out on deck for interesting lectures that make your journey as informative and exciting as possible. Topics depend on the season and waters we sail in. During school holidays, children aged 7-13 can take part in our complimentary Young Explorers programme. MS Finnmarken is beautifully appointed in the Art Deco style evocative of the period when the original DS Finnmarken was launched in 1912. Rich colours, bold geometric shapes and lavish ornamentation are found throughout the ship. It is also Hurtigruten’s only ship with both a swimming pool and Jacuzzi on deck. A defining feature on MS Finnmarken is her bow, and from Deck 5, you can actually go all the way to the tip of the ship.

Named after the spectacular Trollfjorden in Lofoten, MS Trollfjord features modern comfort and facilities throughout. Beginning 1 April 2018, the ship hosts its own on-board expedition team who will present interesting lectures both inside and out on deck. Have fun learning about the nature, wildlife, culture and history you see along the way. Topics depend on the season and waters we sail in. MS Trollfjord’s large, two-storey panorama lounge above the bow features wall-to-wall glass, allowing in lots of natural light and providing extraordinary views of the passing scenery. The ship’s sun deck and Jacuzzi are found on Deck 9. MS Trollfjord also exhibits original paintings that were once aboard the old Hurtigruten ship, MS Harald Jarl. YEAR OF CONSTRUCTION: 2002

MS Nordnorge is named after the northern part of Norway, most of which lies above the Arctic Circle. MS Nordnorge was refurbished in 2016 and features a modern, Arctic-inspired interior. On board, you can dine in three different restaurants, or indulge yourself at the Multe Bakery and Ice Cream Bar. The ship also has a fitness room and sauna. Out on deck, you can soak in the view from one of two Jacuzzis. A cosy bar at the front of the ship is a nice place to enjoy a traditional drink. MS Nordnorge has a large lobby where you find the reception, a tour guide, conference room and shop. The ship’s on-board expedition team presents interesting lectures throughout the entire voyage. Learn more about the nature, culture and history of the places we encounter. You can also take part in ‘live’ on-deck sessions about points of interest as we pass them. The expedition team also leads ‘friluftsliv’ (outdoor) activities and hikes at the various coastal sites we visit.

MS KONG HARALD MS Kong Harald is named after the King of Norway. Like her sister ships, MS Nordkapp and MS Nordnorge, she was refurbished in 2016 with a modern, DECK Arctic-inspired interior. On board, you can 7 dine at three different restaurants, and indulge yourself at our Multe Bakery and Ice Cream Bar. The ship also has a fitness room and sauna. Out on deck, you can soak in the scenery from one of two Jacuzzis. Our cosy bar at the front of the ship is ideal for enjoying a traditional Norwegian DECK aquavit. MS Kong Harald also has a large 6 central lobby were you find the reception, a tour guide, conference room and shop. The vessel’s top deck offers fantastic views from three different vantage points – the sun deck, observation lounge and panorama lounge. The on-board expedition team presents interesting lectures during the entire voyage. Take part in ‘live’ on-deck DECK sessions about points of interest as we pass 5 them. Learn more about the nature, culture and history of the places we see during the journey. The expedition team also leads ‘friluftsliv’ (outdoor) activities and hikes at the various coastal sites we visit. YEAR OF CONSTRUCTION: 1993

‘Polarlys’ is Norwegian for ‘polar light’, the special Arctic phenomenon you experience on a journey with us during winter. MS Polarlys was refurbished in 2016 and now features a modern, Arctic-inspired interior. Our on-board expedition team presents interesting lectures during the entire voyage. Learn more about the nature, culture and history of the places we encounter. You can also take part in ‘live’ on-deck sessions about points of interest as we pass them. The expedition team also leads ‘friluftsliv’ (outdoor) activities and hikes at the various coastal sites we visit. On board, you can dine in three different restaurants, or indulge yourself at the Multe Bakery and Ice Cream Bar. The ship also has a fitness room and sauna. Out on deck, you can soak in the views from one of two Jacuzzis. A cosy bar at the front of the ship is a nice place to enjoy a traditional drink. MS Polarlys has a large lobby where you find the reception, a tour guide, conference room and shop.

MS Vesterålen is named after the first Hurtigruten ship to sail the rugged Norwegian coastline back in 1893. She is one of our smaller vessels and has a charming intimate atmosphere. The boat’s bright, cheerful public areas and lounges enhance the informal on-board ambience. Enjoy spectacular views from the panorama lounge, or peruse the extensive on-board art collection. MS Vesterålen sailings also offer what we call the ‘heritage experience’, featuring a ‘behind the scenes’ look at various aspects of the ship’s operation. During the presentations, held every second day, the tour leader includes interviews with different crewmembers that share insights about life aboard the ship. We also offer practical courses within such relevant maritime topics as navigation (map and compass) and sailor knots. You can also learn about the diverse historical ‘points of interest’ we pass during the journey. With a limited passenger capacity, this voyage on MS Vesterålen is truly something special.

MS Lofoten is our old-time favourite. Launched in Oslo in 1964, the ship’s classic style and informal atmosphere inspire nostalgia. The boat is named after the Lofoten Islands, just north of the Arctic Circle and famous for their dramatic scenery often described as ‘nature’s masterpiece’. With her unique lounges, panoramic decks and elegant simplicity, MS Lofoten is intimate and inimitable. Boat Book the ‘Classic Hurtigruten’ experience deck on board this beauty! Sail back in time on MS Lofoten and experience life along the Norwegian coast as it was half a century ago. At nearly 53 years old, this ‘grand lady’ is the oldest vessel in our fleet. Sailing with her, you experience vintage splendour and charm to the fullest. Enjoy its close sailing proximity to the shore, interactions with other guests and crew, and the strong Saloon deck sense of timelessness you’ll likely feel on this authentic maritime adventure.

Practical information Correspondence If you make your booking through a travel agent, all communication between you and Hurtigruten must be via that agent. If you book your holiday direct with us, all correspondence will be sent to the Lead Passenger. Please quote your booking reference number in all communications. When you or your agent first contact us, we will usually confirm your holiday at the earliest opportunity and advise current flight times and prices, including any applicable supplements or extras, etc. For high season dates, when demand is greater, or if you book within eight weeks of departure, we may have to request your cabin, flight or hotel space and it may take slightly longer to confirm your holiday. An invoice will be sent to confirm your arrangements. If you are travelling with friends but would each like to receive separate documents, please advise us at the time of booking. Travel documents are generally sent approximately 7–14 days prior to departure.

Special requests If you have any special requests (e.g. dietary or medical), please inform us at the time of booking. We will do our best to meet such requests but cannot guarantee to do so and in no circumstances will any such request be accepted by us so as to form part of our contractual agreement.

Mobility We are happy to welcome passengers who are not fully mobile and all ships (except MS Lofoten) have at least one cabin equipped for travellers using a wheelchair. Our sales consultants will also try to book appropriate hotel rooms. Passengers who use a wheelchair must bring their own, standard size, foldable chair. Guests who are able to navigate around the ship unaided in a wheelchair do not need to have a travel companion. Those who need assistance may need to be accompanied. Please discuss with your booking agent. When the ship stops at ports on the Norwegian coast, there is a ramp or gangway for embarkation/disembarkation. Excursions have not been adapted specifically for passengers with walking difficulties. Please contact us or the Tour Leader when you are on

84

board who will be able to advise which excursions are suitable. It is essential you advise us of special requirements at the time of booking to enable us to make the necessary arrangements for you.

Changes to the itinerary and excursions All routes and excursions are provisional and subject to change – weather, sea and ice conditions may affect the itinerary. Excursions may also be subject to minimum/maximum numbers. As Christmas approaches, itineraries may change in order for ships to host dinners and celebrations for local communities. Please take care that you are back in time on board, especially when your ship arrives with a delay but departs on time to keep the schedule. The departure time is displayed at the gangway. Please note that ships cannot wait for late passengers. If you miss your ship, you will need to arrange by yourself and at your own expense the trip to the next harbour.

Minimum numbers Some holidays are subject to a minimum number of participants to enable them to take place. Should the minimum not be reached we will advise you at least 60 days prior to your departure, when we reserve the right to cancel the holiday. We reserve the right to cancel the holiday and to refund all monies paid to us. Alternatively, you may choose another holiday with us, but if the alternative arrangement is at an additional cost, the difference will be payable by you.

ments for travelling to Norway. It is however the responsibility of all passengers to ensure they comply with any health requirements at the time of travel. We suggest you consult your doctor or relevant health authorities about any precautions you should take with regard to Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT).

Currency in Norway We suggest that you take a small amount of local currency (Norwegian Kroner–NOK) in cash. Major credit cards are widely accepted except possibly at smaller businesses. You may be asked to provide identification when you pay by credit card or exchange money. Please also see ‘Payment options’ on page 87.

GENERAL Brochure accuracy The information and descriptions contained in this brochure have been checked by our staff and/or local agents to ensure they are correct. However, changes may occur after the date of publication and there may be occasions when Hurtigruten or local suppliers may withdraw some facilities. Should we become aware of any significant change which may be considered to have an effect on the enjoyment of your holiday, we will do our utmost to advise you. Public holidays and religious festivals may also affect the availability of resort and hotel facilities. Tourist offices can provide details of such events.

Wildlife & natural phenomena

BEFORE YOU GO Passport and ID cards All guests have to present a valid passport or government approved ID card when they check-in.

Vaccinations At the time of printing this brochure, there are no compulsory vaccinations or health require-

Hurtigruten brochures include pictures and descriptions of wildlife, which may be seen from the ships and during excursions. Spending time on outside decks increase your chance of spotting wildlife and natural phenomena but there is no guarantee of sightings.

Environmental commitment Hurtigruten’s environmental efforts are tied to our strategic six-point policy; 1. That environmentally-oriented measures


© JØRN ALLAN PEDERSEN

are identified and implemented in day-to-day operations. 2. That focus is directed specifically at the marine environment. 3. That we specify requirements for subcontractors and contractual partners. 4. That our communications concerning our own environmental performance are open and complete. 5. That we ensure continuous monitoring and improvement of our environmental work. 6. That we do not leave any permanent traces behind us in vulnerable areas. As a traveller with Hurtigruten, your contribution to environmental care is welcome. We have garbage sorting aboard all ships, and we encourage you to turn off lights when leaving the cabin and pull out the plug from electrical transformers not in use. When ashore, bring your litter back to the vessel or dispose at designated places. We are often near wildlife on our voyages. Please heed the advice of our tour leader/expedition leader and excursion guides and strive towards acting in a way that does not alter the wildlife’s natural behaviour.

Hotel accommodation The standard of the hotels we use is equivalent to 3 or 4-star. There is no official hotel rating system in Norway. All rooms have private facilities (except for the Snowhotel in Kirkenes). Single rooms may be smaller and less conveniently situated and may be double rooms for sole occupancy or purpose-built single rooms. Hotels may charge for some facilities e.g. saunas.

Time Norway CET (GMT + 1) CEST (GMT +2)

Tour arrangements The voyages and tours in this brochure are based on independent travel; however all ships and many of our featured hotels have staff who will advise you on excursions and offer general assistance. Some of our holidays are part-escorted.

Transfers Transfers are included as shown and are usually unaccompanied. They may be operated by private coach, scheduled airport coach or train,

On board Information Activities on board As a part of Hurtigruten’s seasonal product concepts, we offer some interesting on-board activities, demonstrations and presentations during the voyages. The activities which take place both inside the vessels and out on deck, have relevance to the season we are sailing in. Our aim is to get closer to unique environments and share the experience with fellow passengers. It is up to the guest to join and the activities will be announced in our daily programmes or announced on board.

Cabins For guests travelling on a Select or a Platinum fare, you will be able to choose a cabin grade and cabin number at no extra charge (subject to availability). For guests on a Basic fare, your cabin grade and number will be assigned to you at check-in on board. Please note that cabins on decks with passenger access to outside areas may sometimes have an obstructed view due to other passengers walking past. Please ask our reservations team for advice on the best cabin location for you.

Cafeteria Hot and cold drinks and snacks may be bought in the cafeteria. Opening hours are advised on board.

Dietary requests Special diets, e.g. vegetarian can be catered for if requested in good time. Passengers on strict diets, e.g. vegans, may find that there is a limited choice. We now offer a 3-course vegan menu option for the evening meal on our 12-day voyages.

Electric current 220v AC. – 2 pin Continental-type for which an adapter is required. Guests are advised to bring their own adapters with them on the voyage.

Embarkation/disembarkation In Bergen, Hurtigruten ships sail from the Hurtigruten Terminal, Nøstegaten 30, N-5010 Bergen. Taxi drivers will understand if you ask to be taken to the Hurtigruten Terminal and it is sign-posted as such locally. Luggage lockers are

86

available in the terminal at a charge. The terminal is staffed and open for luggage check-in from 13:00 hrs. Passenger check-in begins at 15:00 hrs and embarkation takes place from 16:00 hrs. Cabins are available from 18:00 hrs.

Internet We have wireless internet available on board for a small charge, unless already included in your Select or Platinum fare. Please ask for more information at the on-board reception.

Languages Norwegian and English are the official on-board languages. The personnel at the reception and some of the service crew often also speak German. The Tour Leader speaks Norwegian, English and German. Expedition leaders speak Norwegian and English.

There are no restaurant facilities in the terminal and passengers are free to explore Bergen until embarkation time. A buffet dinner is served in the evening of departure from Bergen, usually between 18:00-21:00 with free seating this evening only. Guests with a Select or Platinum fare can request their preferred dining time when booking, although this is still subject to availability. Guests on a Basic fare will be assigned their dining time at check-in on board. When disembarking in Bergen, luggage will be delivered to the baggage belt in the terminal. On the last day of your voyage, you will be asked to vacate your cabin a few hours before disembarkation. Information regarding luggage handling and disembarkation at other ports is available on board.

Laundry

Gratuity policy

Norway’s culinary traditions have much in common with the scenery of the coastline. It is always fresh, distinctive and full of variety. We have always strived to give our guests a truly unique and authentic experience, and local produce and old food traditions are incorporated into every element of the culinary experience on board as well. We pride ourselves on using many local suppliers and ingredients from up and down Norway’s coast, with our ‘Norway’s Coastal Kitchen’ on board our ships. Breakfast consists of a good selection of cold meats, cheeses, eggs, cereals and fruit, with freshly baked bread, pastries and often ‘sveler’ and ‘waffles’ freshly cooked in the restaurant. The all-inclusive package includes a mixture of buffets and set menus for lunches and dinners,

It is not common practice to tip on Hurtigruten ships on the coastal voyage, but if you feel that crew members should be rewarded for providing exceptional service, tip boxes are placed in the restaurant together with envelopes.

Information There will be an information and safety meeting before departure from Bergen and Kirkenes. Each ship has a Tour Leader on board who sells and advises on excursions, issues a daily programme and news bulletin, and makes announcements regarding places of interest, disembarkation, etc. Occasionally this service may be carried out by the reception. All Tour Leaders speak Norwegian, English and German.

Laundry rooms with washing machines, dryers and irons are available on all ships. Tokens can be purchased at reception.

Meal Breakfast is usually served from 07:30 hrs (open seating), lunch from 12:00 (open seating), and dinner from 18:00. It is possible to book individual seating times for dinner, subject to availability and fare. During the high season, there will be limited availability for some dining slots unless pre-booked. Lunch may also be served in two seatings due to capacity issues. The 12-day voyage begins with a buffet dinner on departure from Bergen, and ends with brunch on arrival back in Bergen.

while for those guests not on a Platinum fare but who wish to enjoy an enhanced dining experience, we offer Norway’s Coastal Kitchen’s à la carte menu available for a small additional charge. All vessels are fully licensed, and the prices on board are similar to those on the Norwegian mainland.

Medical assistance There is no doctor or pharmacy on board. How­ever, officers are trained in first aid and can provide emergency medical assistance. The ships are also close to land should urgent medical assistance be required.

Payment options Norwegian currency is used on board. Most major currencies may be exchanged. Visa, American Express, MasterCard and Diners Card are all accepted. A cruise card can be obtained and used for payment for extras and settled at the end of your voyage. This may be subject to change.

Porterage Luggage handling is not included in the cost of your holiday. Unless you are embarking or disembarking the ship at the Hurtigruten Terminal in Bergen, you will need to carry your own luggage on and off the ship at all other ports.

Safety It is a safety requirement that all Hurtigruten passengers attend a compulsory safety briefing in Bergen before the ship leaves port. After check in and before embarkation, please go to the first floor of the terminal building where the safety briefing will be given at intervals by Hurtigruten staff. This will last between 10 – 15 minutes with the first taking place at 15:45 (embarkation is from 16:00, also from the first floor). The talk will include a demonstration of how to put on a life jacket and the instructions to be followed in the unlikely event of an evacuation or other emergency during the voyage. The briefing is compulsory for all passengers including those who have travelled with Hurtigruten on previous occasions. There will be an opportunity to ask questions if you have

any concerns. When you have completed the safety briefing, please embark straight away. The last briefing will take place at 19:30. Guests who arrive after this time will be required to attend a safety meeting on board at 20:00 before the ship leaves Bergen. Please familiarise yourself with the emergency procedures as shown in the cabins (there is a diagram on the cabin door and in public areas), and ask at reception if in doubt. In many ports, there may be a good deal of activity on the quay with cars joining/ leaving the ships and/or goods being loaded or unloaded. Please be alert to such traffic when embarking and disembarking. Take care during winter months when it is icy underfoot, particularly on the outside decks and when disembarking the ship or alighting from coaches. Ice spikes and other winter clothing can be purchased in the ships store. Do not carry large amounts of cash and keep valuable items, including mobile telephones and cameras, out of sight.

Ships with expedition teams From April 2018, nine out of 11 ships (except on MS Vesterålen and MS Lofoten) along the Norwegian coast have an Expedition Leader, an expedition team and special activities on board like lectures and presentations, on-deck guiding, gatherings and environmental actions. These ships function as a ‘base camp’ – the place where you sleep, eat and share experiences – and they are the starting point for all our onshore activities.

Shops Our on-board shops carry a selected range of high quality knitwear, clothing, souvenirs and gift items. In addition, there is also a small selection of toiletries available for purchase. On MS Lofoten, this service is handled by the cafeteria.

Shore excursions Pre-booking excursions (where possible) is recommended as only the remaining places will be sold on board. Excursions booked on board will be payable in Norwegian Kroner and the price may vary as a result of exchange rate fluctuations. Pre-booking of shore excursions is possible until 4 weeks prior to departure. If you choose to pay by credit-card, pre-bookings

can be made until 2 weeks prior to departure. Excursions and their contents are subject to maximum/minimum numbers, sailing times and weather/local conditions.

Smoking Smoking is only permitted in designated areas on the outside decks. Smoking is strictly forbidden when the ships are in port and fuelling and the staff will advise when such times are.

Stabilisers With the exception of MS Lofoten, all of our vessels are equipped with stabilisers.

Telephone/mobile phones Private mobile telephones may be used on board although reception may vary. Check with your provider for costs when using your phone abroad.

What to wear On board, dress is informal. Although some passengers choose to change for dinner, the dress code is casual rather than formal. The weather in Norway can vary during the course of each voyage or even during the day. To cater for these variations, we recommend the layered­-dress approach that enables you to adapt to changes in temperature, wind and precipitation conditions easily. For all voyages, we advise you to take breathable rain and windproof clothing. A warm hat, gloves, scarf and thermal clothing can be useful, together with thermal underwear, during the winter months. On land where it may be icy, sturdy shoes are important for shore excursions and a walking stick/trekking pole may be useful.

Working ships Our ships function as working ships calling at ports around the clock. You may experience some noise and vibration in some cabins during docking and 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.

If it appears to us, the Master or the Company’s nominated medical representative that a Passenger is for any reason unfit to travel, likely to endanger safety, or likely to be refused permission to land at any port, or likely to render the Carrier liable for Passenger maintenance, support or repatriation, then the Carrier or the Master shall have the right to take any of the following courses: (i) Refuse to embark the Passenger at any port; (ii) Disembark the Passenger at any port; (iii) Transfer the Passenger to another berth or cabin; (iv) If the Company’s nominated medical representative considers it advisable, to place or confine him/ her or to transfer the Passenger to a health facility at any port, at the Passenger’s expense (v) to administer first aid and administer any drug, medicine or other substance or to admit and/or confine the Passenger to a hospital or other similar institution at any port provided that the ship’s nominated medical representative and/or Master considers that any such steps are necessary. Where a Passenger is refused embarkation as a result of safety and/or fitness to travel, neither we nor the carrier shall be liable for any loss or expense occasioned to the passenger thereby, nor shall the passenger be entitled to any compensation from the Carrier. Passengers who need assistance and/or have special requests or need special facilities or equipment with regard to accommodation, seating or services required or need to bring medical equipment must notify us at the time of booking. If there are any particular conditions, disabled or reduced mobility which require personal care or supervision then such personal care or supervision must be organised by the passenger and at the passenger’s expense. Those passengers confined to wheelchairs must furnish their own standard size foldable wheelchairs but needn’t be accompanied by a travelling companion. Unless we and or the Carrier agree otherwise and in writing Passengers are limited to bringing 2 items of such mobility or medical equipment on board per cabin with a total value not exceeding £2,200. All equipment must be capable of being carried safety and must be declared before the sailing. The Carrier may decline to carry such equipment where it is not safe to do so or where it has not been notified in time to enable a risk assessment to be carried out. Pregnant women are highly recommended to seek medical advice prior to travel at any stage of their pregnancy. Women who are up to 23 weeks pregnant at the end of the cruise are required to produce a medical certificate of fitness to travel. The Carrier cannot for safety reasons carry pregnant passengers of 24 weeks or more by the end of the cruise. 5. A PRICES All Voyage prices shown in this brochure are in pounds sterling and are per person based on full occupancy of the cabin accommodation unless otherwise stated. Single/Sole occupancy of cabins with more than one berth is at our discretion as single/sole use of multiple berth cabins will be limited. The price of your voyage or air package holiday arrangements was calculated using exchange rates quoted in the Financial Times Guide to World Currencies on 27.01.2017, Norwegian Kroner (NOK) 12.48; Euros 1.31. We reserve the right to change any of the prices quoted in this brochure although there will be no change within 30 days of your departure date. You will be advised of the current price of the voyage or air package holiday you wish to book before your contract is confirmed. We reserve the right to increase or decrease prices in line with any change in VAT, local and UK taxes, embarkation/disembarkation fees, fuel surcharges, exchange rates, security charges or any fees chargeable for the services included in the cost of your holiday. Should it be necessary to make any surcharges we will notify you of the relevant adjustments by issuing a new invoice. In any event we will absorb all such increases where they form less than 2% of the total cost of your voyage or air package holiday (excluding any cancellation or amendment charges). Only amounts in excess of 2% will be invoiced to you, together with an administration charge of £1.00 per person together with an amount to cover agent’s commission. In the event that any surcharge means you paying in excess of 10% more on the original cost of your voyage or air package holiday, you will be entitled to cancel your trip with a full refund of all monies paid (except amendment fees). Should you wish

to cancel under these circumstances you must exercise your right to do so within 14 days from the date of the invoice we send you showing the increase. Should the price of your voyage or air package holiday go down due to changes above by more than 2% of your holiday cost then any refund due will be paid to you. Please note that travel arrangements are not always purchased in local currency and some apparent changes have no impact on the price of your travel due to contractual or other protection in place. 5.B VOYAGE AND AIR PACKAGE HOLIDAY Prices Do Not Include • Travel Insurance • Luggage Handling • International Flights except where included in the Air Package Holiday Price • Optional Excursions • Gratuities Optional Excursions booked before you travel or local excursions or other activities that you may choose to book and pay for whilst on holiday are not part of your voyage or air package holiday arrangements provided by us nor are we agents for the provider of the service. For any excursion or other activity you book before departure or with which you are assisted in arranging whilst on holiday, your contract will solely be with the supplier of the excursion or activity and not with Hurtigruten. We are not responsible for the provision of your excursion or activity or for anything that happens during the course of its provision by the supplier. 6. IF YOU CHANGE YOUR BOOKING If you wish to change your travel arrangements after they have been confirmed we will do our utmost to help but it may not always be possible. Any request for changes to be made must be in writing by the person who made the booking or your travel agent. You will be asked to pay an administration charge of £60 per person and any further cost we incur in making this alteration. NB: most airlines will charge a fee for ticket changes. Costs may increase the closer to the departure date that changes are made. For example, the transfer within 60 days of departure of arrangements involving a scheduled flight will mean the cancellation and re-booking of this flight and a significant additional charge. If you change the number of people in your party, the price of the arrangements will be recalculated for the new party size e.g. this may mean that accommodation is under-occupied and each member of the party may have to pay an increased price. Any increase in price caused by changes you have requested is not a cancellation charge even though it may arise because a member of your party has cancelled. Any change by you to your confirmed arrangements after departure is in all cases subject to availability and any relevant costs. 7. IF YOU CANCEL You, or any member of your party, may cancel your travel arrangements at any time. Written notification from the person who made the booking or your travel agent must be received at our offices. We recommend ‘Recorded Delivery’. Cancellation takes effect the day we receive your letter or email. Since we incur costs in relation to your arrangements from the time we confirm your booking you will have to pay the applicable cancellation charges as shown in the table below (which also applies if we cancel because you have failed to make payments on time - see ‘Payment’ section) together with the cost of any air fare for which we have had to pay at the time of the booking and will be payable immediately on cancellation.

If you have to cancel for a reason covered by your travel insurance you may be able to reclaim the cancellation charges, less applicable excess. Insurance premiums are not refundable. 8. IF WE CHANGE OR CANCEL YOUR BOOKING We reserve the right to change any of the details, and correct any errors in this brochure or invoices at any time. If changes are made before you have made your booking we will advise you before we confirm your arrangements. We reserve the right in any circumstances to cancel your travel arrangements (for example if a minimum number of participants for a particular travel arrangements not reached, we may have to cancel it) and to change airline, aircraft types, vessels and itineraries without liability for any subsequent loss. Even after we have confirmed your booking we may have to make alterations but we will not cancel your travel arrangements less than 60 days before your departure except for reasons of force majeure or failure by you to pay the final balance in full.

Most alterations will be minor and while we will do our best to notify you or your travel agent of any changes as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before your departure, we will have no other liability to you. Occasionally we may have to make a significant change to your confirmed arrangements. Significant changes include the following: • Change of UK departure airport. A change from one London airport to another is not considered a major change. London airports are Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Luton and London City. • Change of your time of departure or return by more than 12 hours. • Change of your flight from a day flight to a night flight if this also includes a change to your departure time of 3 hours or more.† • Change of resort. • Change of holiday accommodation to accommodation of a lower official rating. † For the purposes of the contract night flights are those which depart from the UK between 22:00 and 06:00 hours or arrive in the UK between 24:00 and 06:00 hours. If we have to make a significant change we will notify you as soon as possible and you may either: (a) accept the change and the contract between us will then be varied to incorporate the change; or (b) take alternative arrangements altogether (subject to availability). If the alternative arrangements selected are a lower price than those originally confirmed the difference will (if already paid) be refunded to you. (c) withdraw from the booking completely in which case we will as soon as possible, refund all money paid to us. Passengers must give notice of their decision as soon as reasonably possible and not later than 7 days of being informed of the alteration. If you choose (a) or (b) above, you will receive as compensation a credit towards the cost of your arrangements, or any alternative selected, the amount shown in Scale A below. If you choose (c) we will pay you compensation shown in Scale B below. In all cases we will have no liability for any other or greater compensation or for expenses or losses incurred.

*The compensation shown above applies to full fare paying adults only. Children or others travelling at concessionary rates will receive compensation pro rata based on the concessionary price against the full adult price as shown on the confirmation. The above rates do not apply when we are forced to make changes which cause you to withdraw or cancel your arrangements, by reason of unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control and which we could not have avoided by the exercise of all due care and our only liability will be to refund, as soon as possible, all money paid to us by you. We are unable to accept liability or pay compensation where the performance or prompt performance of our contractual obligation is prevented or affected by reason of circumstances amounting to ‘force majeure’ i.e. any event which we or the supplier(s) of the service(s) could not, even with due care foresee or avoid. Such events may include, but are not limited to, war, threat of war or civil commotions, riots, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, adverse weather, fire, flood, drought, government action, airport and port regulations and closures, technical transportation problems, maintenance to vessels, scheduling of transport and similar events outside our control. A flight or ship delay does not constitute a change to holiday arrangements. 9. COMPLAINT PROCEDURE If there is a problem during your holiday, you must report it on board immediately or to the relevant airline, ground handler, hotelier or other supplier, so that prompt efforts can be made to resolve the problem. In the unlikely event that a problem cannot be resolved at the time and you wish to complain, you must send us full written details within 28 days of your return. Failure to take either or both of these steps will prejudice our ability to resolve your problem and / or investigate it fully. In consequence, any right to compensation you may have will be extinguished or, at the very least, substantially reduced. Where the port of embarkation for your sailing is in the EU then any complaints relating to EU Regulation 1177/2010 on Passenger Rights when travelling by Sea and Inland waterways must be made to the Company in writing no later than 2 months after return from travel or the date on which the service complained of was performed. The Company will


provide a final reply within 2 months. You must supply full details to enable the Company to deal with your complaint. In the unlikely event that any complaint cannot be settled between us you may if you wish be referred to Arbitration. This special scheme, by arrangement with ABTA is administered by CEDR Solve. It applies if your claim is for not more than £5,000 per person or £25,000 per booking and does not involve physical injury or illness. The scheme provides for a simple and inexpensive method of arbitration conducted privately based on written documentation and evidence with limited customer liability on costs. Full details are available on request or from ABTA Ltd, 30 Park Street, London SE1 9EQ, www.abta.com. 10. OUR LIABILITY TO YOU (i) Except where otherwise expressly stated in these booking conditions, we regret we cannot accept liability or pay any compensation where the performance of our contractual obligations is prevented or affected by or you otherwise suffer any damage or loss as a result of ‘force majeure’. In these Booking Conditions, ‘force majeure’ means any event which we or the supplier of the service(s) in question could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid. Such events may include war or threat of war, riot, civil strife, actual or threatened terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events outside our control. (ii) We will accept responsibility for the arrangements we agree to provide or arrange for you as an ‘organiser’ under the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992 as set out below. Subject to these booking conditions, if we or our suppliers perform or arrange your contracted holiday arrangements negligently, taking into consideration all relevant factors, we will pay you reasonable compensation. (iii) Where death and or personal injury and or loss of or damage to property occurs during carriage by air or by sea then liability and the extent of damages recoverable will be dealt with by International Conventions as set out in paragraphs (v) and (vi) and not otherwise. (iv) As set out in these booking conditions we limit the maximum amount we may have to pay you for any claims you may make against us which do not involve personal injury, illness or death. Except where loss of and/or damage to luggage or personal possessions is concerned if we are found liable to you on any basis the maximum amount we will have to pay you is twice the price (excluding insurance premiums and amendment charges) paid by or on behalf of the person(s) affected in total unless a lower limitation applies to your claim under clause 10 (vi) below. (v) Where any claim or part of a claim (including those involving death or personal injury) concerns or is based on any travel arrangements (including the process of getting on and/or off the transport concerned) provided by any air, sea, rail or road carrier or any stay in a hotel, the maximum amount of compensation we will have to pay you will be limited. The most we will have to pay you for that claim or that part of a claim if we are found liable to you on any basis is the most the carrier or hotel keeper concerned would have to pay under the international convention or regulation which applies to the travel arrangements or hotel stay in question. (for example, the Warsaw Convention as amended or unamended and the Montreal Convention for international travel by air and/or for airlines with an operating licence granted by an EU country, the EC Regulation on Air Carrier Liability No 889/2002 for national and international travel by air, the Athens convention for international travel by sea). Please note: Where a carrier or hotel would not be obliged to make any payment to you under the applicable International Convention or Regulation in respect of a claim or part of a claim, we similarly are not obliged to make a payment to you for that claim or part of the claim. When making any payment, we are entitled to deduct any money which you have received or are entitled to receive from the transport provider or hotelier for the complaint or claim in question. Copies of the applicable International Conventions and Regulations are available from us on request. We do not have any liability to you by virtue of the Regulation 261/2004 which applies solely to the operating carrier. Any liability we may have to you under our contract with you, arising out of the same facts, is limited to the remedies provided under

The air holidays in this brochure are ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority. Our ATOL number is 3584. Please see booking conditions for more information. ATOL protection only applies to holidays that include inter­ national air travel, and therefore does not apply to all holiday and travel services shown in this brochure. Please ask us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking.

the Regulation as if (for this purpose only) we were a carrier; any sums you receive from the carrier will be deducted from any amount due from ourselves. (vi) Travel by sea is governed by the provisions of the Convention Relating to the Carriage of Passengers and their Luggage by Sea 1974 as amended in 1976 (‘The Athens Convention) and where applicable from 1 January 2013 EU Regulation 392/2009 relating to the Liability of carriers of passengers by sea in the event of accidents (‘EU Regulation 392/2009). For the purposes of the Athens Convention and EU Regulation 392/2009 we are the Contracting Carrier. The Athens Convention and EU Regulation 392/2009 limit the Carriers’ liability for death or personal injury or loss or damage to luggage and makes special provision for valuables. It is presumed that luggage has been delivered to you undamaged unless written notice is given by us and/or the performing Carrier. a) in the case of apparent damage, before or at the time of disembarkation or redelivery; or b) in the case of damage which is not apparent or of loss, within 15 days from the date of disembarkation or redelivery or from the time when such redelivery should have taken place. Damages for cabin luggage payable by the Carrier are limited up to the Athens Convention limit of 833 SDRs or 2250 SDRs if EU Regulation 392/2009 applies. Limits shall be reduced in proportion to any contributory negligence by the Client and by the maximum deductible specified in Article 8(4) of the Athens Convention or EU Regulation 392/2009. In so far as we may be liable to a Client in respect of claims arising out of carriage by sea, we shall be entitled to all the rights, defences, immunities and limitations available, respectively, to the actual carrier and under the relevant Conventions and nothing in these Booking Conditions shall be deemed as a surrender thereof. To the extent that any provision in these Booking Conditions is made null and void by the Athens Convention or EU Regulation 392/2009 or any legislation compulsorily applicable or is otherwise unenforceable, it shall be void to that extent but not further. Any liability in respect of death and personal injury and loss of and damage to luggage which we may incur to you shall always be subject to the limits of liability contained in the Athens Convention or EU Regulation 392/2009 for death/personal injury of 46,666 Special Drawing Rights (SDR) or 300,000 SDR under Athens Convention or 400,000 SDRs under EU Regulation 392/2009 except in the case of liability for war or terrorism 250,000 SDRs. We are not liable for valuables, monies or other securities including jewellery and watches. If they have been deposited with the reception desk on the ship for safe keeping and a receipt issued then in those limited circumstances the Carriers liability will be as set out in the Athens Convention or EU Regulation 392/2009. The use of safes on board a Vessel is not a deposit with the ship or with the company under the Athens Convention or EU Regulation 392/2009 or otherwise. The limits are 1200 SDRs pursuant to Athens or 3,375 SDRs pursuant to EU Regulation 392/2009. (vii) Where there is any loss of or damage to property including luggage which is not covered by any international convention and where liability is not limited by reference to any enactment, terms of conditions, then any legal liability that we may have for any such losses or damage will not exceed £500 per guest. (viii) You must provide ourselves and our insurers with all assistance we may reasonably require. You must also tell us and the supplier concerned about your claim or complaint as set out in clause 9 above. If asked to do so, you must transfer to us or our insurers any rights you have against the supplier or whoever else is responsible for your claim or complaint (if the person concerned is under 18, their parent or guardian must do so). You must also agree to cooperate fully with us and our insurers if we or our insurers want to enforce any rights which are transferred. 11. INDEMNITY When you book arrangements with us you accept responsibility for the proper conduct of yourself and your party. If your actions or omissions cause damage to any property in the provision of the contracted arrangements, or cause delay or diversion to any flight or other means of transportation, you agree to

Hurtigruten is also a member of ABTA. UK & Ireland and is bonded accordingly. This ensures the protection of your monies, once paid to Hurtigruten, for all holidays contained in this brochure that are not ATOL protected, for example voyage only. It also covers your repatriation to the UK in the unlikely event of our insolvency.

fully indemnify us against any claim (including professional fees and legal costs) made against us by or on behalf of the owner of such property or the operator of the flight or other means of transportation. The Captain of an aircraft or Master of a ship has authority over the aircraft/ship and passengers at all times when they are boarding or on board. There will be no liability on our part, or that of any supplier, for any refund, compensation, or costs thus incurred. Additionally, we will have the right to recover full costs resulting from the incident from the passenger. At any port or place we may refuse to embark or may disembark any passenger who, in the opinion of the ship’s authorized personnel, might be excluded from landing at further destinations by local authorities or who may be suffering from any contagious or infectious disease, or whose presence may be detrimental to the wellbeing of passengers or crew. In cases of quarantine of the ship, or individual passengers (passengers may be required to remain in their cabin or as instructed by authorised personnel on board if they or any other occupant of the accommodation presents any symptoms or may be considered to put other passengers at risk) we will not be liable for expenses thus caused and in such cases as above there will be no entitlement to any refund or compensation and we will have no liability for costs incurred as a result. Your specific passport and visa and health requirements and other immigration requirements are your responsibility and you should confirm these with the relevant Embassies and/or Consulates. We do not accept responsibility if you cannot travel because you have not complied with the latest requirements. If you have made independent travel arrangements you accept responsibility for joining the ship in good time, regardless of any change to the sailing time or date, or to the itinerary. We are not able to refund monies paid to us, or any third party acting on our or your behalf, or make compensation or other payments where, for whatever reason, you fail to join the ship. Passengers going ashore are responsible for re-boarding the ship prior to departure from port. We reserve the right to substitute another vessel for the scheduled vessel whether or not owned or operated by Hurtigruten. Any part of the travel arrangements and the voyage is subject to cancellation, delay, modification, or island/mainland visit cancellation for any reason, including medical disembarkation of crew or passengers or any other circumstances beyond our or our suppliers’ control. You therefore acknowledge and agree that the scheduled itinerary for the voyage and the announced departure and arrival times are not guaranteed and we shall not be liable to passengers for any damages or other claims in the event of any delay, changes in itinerary or inability to perform services by reason of any event or events beyond our or our suppliers’ control. 12. INSURANCE It is a condition of the contract with us that every member of the booking has travel insurance in force for the entire duration of the booking, covering at least the cancellation of the booking and providing medical cover for illness or injury and repatriation while overseas. Please provide us with the name of your insurer, together with their 24-hour emergency number when you book or as soon as possible. 13. TIMINGS & DELAYS Timings are estimates only and cannot be guaranteed, even if shown on tickets. They may be changed due to regulatory authority requirements, weather conditions, maintenance or technical reasons, and the ability of passengers to check in and board on time. Sometimes delays cannot be avoided but in such situations, in conjunction with our local agents or representatives, we will try to ensure your comfort during the course of any delay. Where the port of embarkation is in the EU and the company reasonably expects the departure of a cruise to be delayed for more than 90 minutes beyond its scheduled departure time, passengers departing from port terminal shall be offered free of charge snacks, meals or refreshments as are appropriate given the waiting time, provided they are available and can reasonably be supplied. If the delay in departure necessitates a stay of one or more nights or a stay additional to that intended by the passenger where and when physically possible the Company shall, subject to the Package Travel Regulations 1992, offer passengers departing from port terminals free of charge adequate accommodation on board or ashore, and transport to and from the port terminal and place of accommodation in addition to the snacks, meals and refreshments previously referred

to. The maximum amount that the company will pay for accommodation ashore and transport to and from the port terminal shall be equivalent to 80 Euros per person per night for a maximum of three nights. The company will not have an obligation to provide such accommodation ashore where the delay is caused by weather conditions endangering the safe operation of the ship. 14. BROCHURE VALIDITY This brochure was published in April 2017 and the details and prices contained in it are valid to March 2019 but may be superseded by subsequent brochures. 15. DATA PROTECTION In order to process your booking and ensure your travel arrangements run smoothly and meet your requirements we, Hurtigruten Ltd, need to use the information you provide such as name, address, any special needs/dietary requirements etc. We take full responsibility for ensuring that proper security measures are in place to protect your information.
