Springtime - the Arctic Awakening

After a long winter, warmth returns to the shores of Norway and sunlight rejuvenates life along the coastline. The sun works overtime to thaw this frozen land, rising higher and higher each day. Join us in experiencing three seasons in five days, and “The Arctic Awakening” of the Norwegian coastline.

Every new day brings a marked increase in both daylight hours and the greenery of the fjords. Bare branches shoot, and colour gently returns to the landscape. At the higher latitudes of the Arctic region, winter struggles to maintain its grip. Eventually, it relents although snow-caps still decorate the mountain tops of the north until the early summer. This is a time of celebration and May witnesses the festivities of Norwegian National Day (17 May), when the coastal communities become a blaze of colour and tradition. All our ships take part in the parades and celebrations.

The Arctic Awakening Hurtigruten’s new spring concept, The Arctic Awakening, enriches the voyage with activities on board and exciting new shore excursions. We take you closer to the teeming life in the ocean, the migratory birds and the local inhabitants of small communities. These are the ingredients of a Hurtigruten spring voyage. The return of the Arctic summer is like an infusion of vitamins kick-starting the birds, plants and animals in their breeding, growing and feeding. Hurtigruten invites all our guests to bear witness to this spectacle and participate in The Arctic Awakening!

Spring Highlights:

  • In spring you can also take part in several of our winter activities north of the Arctic Circle. For example, a snowmobile trip in Lapland, a stay at the Snow Hotel and dog sledging.
  • The unique migratory bird-life at this time of the year.
  • As part of our spring programme, you can participate in several on board activities andshore excursions focusing on Norway’s sea and birdlife.
  • See the beautiful Geirangerfjord (16 Apr - 15 Sep) and Trollfjord.
  • Cross the Arctic Circle and enjoy the return of the Midnight Sun from the 14th of May.
  • Norway’s National Day, the 17th of May, is celebrated with children’s parades and festivities throughout the country.
