Inspired Cuisine — Every Day of Your Trip

A Norwegian  journey is more than a feast for your visual senses — it's also an opportunity to understand Norwegian culture through it's foods. With the sea at their doorstep, Norwegians have long been among of the world's most intrepid fishermen, going out in all season to fish the rich northern Atlantic waters. In practical terms, that means menus can be quite different from those in North America and many other parts of Europe. For example, you'll find seafood on the menu quite often, including at breakfast. In addition, Norway's northern latitude, with it's long, intense summer days but relatively short growing season, means that Norwegians have developed creative ways to get the most from the land, growing root vegetables and using pickling and preserving techniques to produce a variety of side dishes and garnishes. Aboard ship you can expect breakfast and lunch buffets with a number of choices, while dinners are generally a set menu, consisting of fish, such as Arctic char, or a meat dish, which may be venison, steak, lamb, or chicken, as well as salad or vegetables. You will also have the option of substituting the main course on the menu for pasta, soup, or a sandwich.

Dining choice option: Travelers may also upgrade their dining experience at additional cost and move to the ships "A-La-Carte" restaurant. Arrangements can be made on board.

In addition to your meals on board the ship, you’ll enjoy a light buffet dinner upon your arrival at your hotel in Bergen. While most meals are included in your journey, you’ll also have an opportunity to go out on your own and sample local cuisine at a restaurant in Bergen. Your Cruise Director can recommend restaurants that you may want to try.


Norway's Coastal Kitchen

Hurtigruten has enlisted the help of celebrity chef Andreas Viestad to offer a unique & exciting culinary journey along almost concepts on all of Hurtigruten’s ships that sail along the Norwegian coast, with a focus on local food of the highest quality. More than 80% of the food and drink served on Hurtigruten voyages is already produced in Norway, with menus focusing on seasonal delicacies of the regions you'll visit. They have also been identifying smaller food suppliers along the coast, helping them grow their businesses enough to be able to supply the ships on a regular basis. For example, passengers will enjoy cured leg of lamb from Hellesylt, a town near the Geirangerfjord; baked Arctic char from the Sigerfjord near Vesterålen, with gulløye potatoes from Tromsø; or roast reindeer from Finnmark. There is no shortage of traditional Norwegian treats on the menu, including kvæfjordkake, a special cake made of meringue, vanilla cream, and almonds, which can trace its origins to a small café in Harstad in Vesterålen. You can enjoy fresh Arctic char delivered directly to the ship during the day, then prepared and served just a few hours later. It is that sort of detail that makes this experience truly unique in offering an authentic culinary adventure through these fascinating waters.
