South to north
Hurtigruten's southernmost port is Cadiz, Spain, and the northernmost disembarkation for European sailing (which is distinct from Hurtigruten Coastal Norway sailing) is Tromsø, the Gateway to the Arctic. Here you will find the richest historic settings in the Northern Hemisphere and the hidden pearls of the Norwegian coastline.
UNESCO World Heritage Sites
In the south, you will see UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including old Spanish and Portuguese ports. Ancient churches and castles give evidence of the strong feudal traditions that governed European life until the birth of the nation-states during the late medieval period.
French and British culture merge in the English Channel, while the ports of Germany, the BeNeLux countries, and the Baltics offers a mix of urban communities and rural settlements.
Cultural and natural diversity
Our Atlantic coast sailing invites you to participate in many unique cultural experiences. Take in the feel of historic capitals such as Lisbon, the distinctive traditional Spanish ports, the jet-set life of the English Channel Islands, and the urbanity of Amsterdam. Continuing north on an Explorer Voyage takes you to Norwegian coastal communities otherwise ignored by the major cruise lines. Here you get to know the locals, taste their food, and listen to their stories. You can experience small islands and rich animal life from a kayak or on a fisherman's boat.
