This morning, you arrive at Harstad, where you can join one of our classic excursions - A Taste of Vesteralen. Discover history, beautiful scenery, and cultural heritage sites on this tour that rejoins the ship at Sortland. Those who stay on the ship experience our passage through the Risoyrenna, a shallow channel made for Hurtigruten in the 1920s. Get ready for some amazing scenery as you sail through the world-famous islands of Lofoten and Vesteralen. Lofoten is known for its natural beauty, steep mountains, wild nature, and picturesque fishing villages. Our daylight sailing route through the region is the voyage highlight for many. After a short stop at the tiny village of Risoyhamn, you continue to Stokmarknes - where Hurtigruten began more than 125 years ago. You can visit the Hurtigruten Museum here. Continuing south, it will look like you’re headed into a mountain wall, but don’t worry. You are in fact sailing through a passage into the narrow Raftsund, flanked by peaks rising 1,000 m out of the sea. You now arrive at amazing Trollfjord. If conditions allow, you will sail between sheer cliffs that seem close enough to reach out and touch. It’s an unforgettable experience! Next, you arrive at Svolver, where you can choose from several excursion options. Go horseback riding along a beach at sunset, head out on spectacular hikes, join a fast-boat tour on the fjord, or relax in town at one of many cafés, pubs, and restaurants.
