We will also introduce you to some of what you need to know about:
First of all: You are getting close to nature when on any Norwegian cruises! The Norwegian climate can be challenging, and there might be several seasons experienced in one day. So prepare for it by bringing warm clothes and good shoes.
Most cruiseships sailing along the Norwegian coast during the summer months are visiting Ålesund and Geiranger. These are the most popular harbours to visit, and many cruise ships are also visiting Molde, Åndalsnes and Kristiansund. Beautiful places with breathtaking excursions available.
The western coast of Norway has so many beautiful places to show you, so we have to select just a few of them here. The 3 above are the most visited.
Want a closer watch of Norway, and the Norwegian way of living?
See the midnight sun and feel the athmosphere of the summer nights in the landscape north of the Arctic Circle. A Classic Norwegian Cruise on a Hurtigruten ship is the best way to experience Norway and the fjords. We recommend the book "Insights: Norway" for any traveller.
Read this article about Hurtigruten from CNN from January 2016.

When travelling around it is always a good idea to compare prices in order to find the very best offers. If you are looking for a place to stay, we recommend to look for hotels here to save money in an easy way.
Wherever you are going. Prepare for it. Check the climate and weather conditions, what to wear, health care, and whatever practical questions that will occure.
Never underestimate the need for a travel insurance. You never know if, or when you need it, but when preparing your vacation, this is a must.
