Hurtigruten Summer Short Breaks

Hurtigruten has launched a new summer short break programme, tying in with the Midnight Sun and new flights from Gatwick to Tromso launched by Norwegian.

A selection of five- and six-day flight-inclusive breaks is available with opportunities to experience a range of new optional guided excursions such as a Midnight Sun kayaking trip, bird watching and mountain hiking. As an example, a jeep safari to Sommaroy costs fropm £180 per person (based on four passengers) and is a half day trip through mountains and along fjords, spotting reindeer and birds and other wildlife and having the chance to do some fishing.

Sample packages include a five-day Land of the Midnight Sun voyage (Tromso-Kirkenes-Tromso) which is available on selected dates between April 13 and September 14 2013. Highlights include Honningsvag, the gateway to the North Cape, Kirkenes and Vardo and prices start from £999 per person to include return flights from Gatwick, three nights' half board on the ship, one nights' bed and breakfast in a Tromso hotel and transfers.

Another option, a five-day Into the Arctic Summer voyage (Bergen–Tromso) costs from £1075 per person and is available on 19 selected dates between April 5 and September 6. Highlights include Alesund, Geirangerfjord, Trondheim and sailing through the Lofoten Islands. Again, the price includes return flights from Gatwick, three nights' half board on the ship, one nights' bed and breakfast in a Tromso hotel and transfers.

Hurtigruten is currently offering discounts of up to £766 per person on selected trips this spring when booked before March 31 2013. A 12-day Classic Round Voyage (Bergen-Kirkenes-Bergen) now starts from £1423 per person (saving up to £766) on selected dates between April 15 and June 4. The price is based on two sharing an unspecified inside cabin on half board basis. Flights are extra.
