Hurtigruten’s new 2012 Norway Brochure has been tailored so visitors can make the most of Norway’s seasonal attractions.

It includes a variety of new excursions and onboard activities that give passengers a new perspective on the country’s spectacular, ever-changing landscape.

The cruise lines 6-, 7-, 11 and 12-day Classic Coastal Voyages have been designed to capture the essence of each distinct season:

In spring, the cruise line seeks to give passengers an experience of contrasts, taking them across the country, from the still frosty north to the freshly blooming south, where wildlife and bird watching feature.

Its summer cruises will voyage the ‘Land of the Midnight Sun’, with 24 hours of sunlight exploited on visits to fjords, the Lofoten islands and the striking historic architecture in the town of Trondheim.

Norway’s rural coastal towns are at their best in autumn, so Hurtigruten has tailored its sailings to ensure passengers properly experience them.

And the cruise line has designed winter sailings for dog sledding trips and the spectacle of the northern lights.
