What to Expect

Activity Level

Takes into consideration the physical requirements for each of the trips, walking, hiking, climbing in and out of safari vehicles etc.
           Moderately Strenuous

Travelers should be able to climb 80 stairs consecutively, plus walk at least 4 miles over some steep slopes and loose or uneven surfaces without difficulty. Walks typically last for 4 or more hours at a time. Altitude can range from 7,000 to 9,000 feet.

Pacing

Takes into consideration the length of bus rides, flights, number of destinations in the number of days
           Moderate

Pacing is sometimes robust, and may include several long days with early hotel departures, active sightseeing and evening activities. Opportunities for daytime rest and rejuvenation may be limited on most days. May include significant motor coach time, two or more on-tour flights, and/or occasional travel via non-traditional means such as safari vehicles, Zodiac ship tenders, rickshaws/pedi-cabs, etc.

PACING:

  • The pace of this itinerary is moderately strenuous
  • 14-day Norwegian adventure includes a 11-night northbound cruise voyage and 2 nights in hotels

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS:

  • Some optional shore excursions, included sightseeing, and included port-of-call orientation walking tours require walking on uneven terrain
  • Embarking and disembarking the ship also requires a fair bit of walking
  • There are hiking opportunities for those looking to explore the incredible nature of this region further. Hurtigruten now offers a Hiking Pass for more active travelers.

TERRAIN & TRANSPORTATION:

  • You will encounter some uneven terrain during walking tours, including cobblestone paths
  • Most sightseeing is on air-conditioned / heated coaches with guides

CLIMATE:

  • Temperatures in northern Norway will change during the course of the voyage and perhaps throughout the day
  • Rainfall and snow averages vary by season
  • To prepare, we recommend layered dress to adapt to changes, as well as breathable rain and windproof clothing. Be sure to have a good outer jacket over normal clothes
  • It is important to have good, sturdy walking shoes and hat, etc. for shore excursions, included sightseeing, and port-of-call orientation walking tours. A helpful hint — you may want to bring an extra pair of waterproof walking shoes for comfort!
  • Since the weather is unpredictable, please check weather sites online for 10-day forecasts closer to your departure date to plan your packing accordingly

Important Notice: The above day-by-day itineraries are preliminary and therefore subject to change. If changes occur while on tour, you will be notified by your Vantage Adventure Leader or regional expert.

Please Note: Port-of-call orientation walking tours are subject to change based on port time and weather conditions.
