Set out to discover the colorful city of Bergen on a tour. Our first stop is Bryggen Wharf, the city’s historic waterfront area. Built after the Great Fire of 1702, these traditional wooden houses and unusual street patterns inspired UNESCO to declare the city a World Heritage Site. Then, enjoy a fascinating look at Norway’s musical legacy with a visit to the home of Edvard Grieg. As one of the most influential Romantic composers of the 19th century, Grieg’s works helped launch Norway into musical prominence on an international level. We’ll learn more about his contributions during a tour of his home, now a fascinating museum. Later, you'll embark your Hurtigruten cruise ship and set sail on the cruise portion of your Nordic adventure. Cultural Discovery: Because your ship is both a working and passenger vessel, your ship mates will be a mix of local and international travelers. This gives you the unique experience of connecting with not only Scandinavians, but people from across the globe as well.
Important note: Your ship calls at many ports, and you'll often have time to go ashore for sightseeing. However, this is a working vessel that also delivers cargo on a strict schedule, and some port calls may not allow you any time on shore. Your Adventure Leader will keep your explorations active with port orientation walks wherever possible.
Hiking Opportunities: For those looking to explore the incredible nature of this region further, Hurtigruten now offers a Hiking Pass for more active travelers. Soak in the astonishing seclusion and unspoiled natural landscapes that make Norwegian fjordland one-of-a-kind as you embark on a series of guided hikes with a member of the expedition team.
