Thoughts of watching the Yuletide Log at Christmas might come to mind but it takes just a few minutes of incredible Norwegian scenery and lapping ocean waves to calm the soul and tease the traveler – and discover why this voyage is considered the “world’s most beautiful voyage” by several top travel publications. The project, in the works for many months between Norway’s state broadcaster NRK and Hurtigruten, has gone live as of Thursday, June 16 and will provide 134 hours of round-the-clock television coverage, transmitted on the Norway’s state broadcaster’s 2nd largest station as well as worldwide on the web. Multiple cameras have been set up onboard the 691-passenger MS Nordnorge to offer a sweeping view of the voyage as well as interviews with passengers and scenes aboard the ship including the bridge. The cameras keep filming around the clock until the ship docks in Kirkenes. The link to the live feed is www.hurtigruten.us/live
The MS Nordnorge transits Norway’s spectacular west coast, sailing between the cultural center of Bergen and Kirkenes, high above the Arctic Circle, with a total of 34 ports of call. The itinerary presents an ever-changing landscape of small fishing villages in the rugged Lofoten Islands; Art Nouveau Alesund, the medieval Viking capital of Trondheim; the western fjords with UNESCO-listed Geiranger leading the way, the wonderful coast of Helgeland, Tromso as the Gateway to the Arctic, and the North Cape.
