Interview with Hurtigruten product developer Jørn Henriksen on the beauty of the Antarctic and on deciding which expedition ship is right for you.
As of autumn 2016, Hurtigruten will offer Antarctic voyages on two ships: MS Fram, which already regularly sails around the Antarctic region between October and February, will be joined by MS Midnatsol.
When it comes to fjords, Lyngenfjord isn't the longest in the world (that title belongs to Scoresbysund in Greenland); it's not even the longest in Norway (that's Sognefjord down in the south). Depth-wise, the UNESCO-listed could swallow Toronto's CN Tower with room to spare, but Lyngenfjord is relatively unremarkable in this category also. And whilst we're mentioning the subject, Lyngenfjord isn't on UNESCO's list of world heritage sites either.
As MS Lofoten pulled out of Bergen on 2nd July 2013, the crew and passengers were all aware partaking in a piece of Hurtigruten history - one of a series of anniversary sailings along the Norwegian coast, our home for 120 fascinating years.
