The name of this beautiful ship, MS Nordnorge is taken from the most northerly area of Norway.

Nord-Norge means the northern part of Norway, mostly situated inside the Arctic Circle. MS Nordnorge was built in Norway in 1997 and is the second ship in Hurtigruten to have this name. Between 2002-2007 MS Nordnorge gave her guests memorable experiences in Antarctica. On board MS Nordnorge guests can admire the work of artists such as Johanne Marie Hansen-Krone, Ellen Lenvik and Dagfinn Bakke. The interior décor very much reflects an Art Nouveau and Art Deco influence.

She has become a national celebrity after being the main venue for NRK’s “Hurtigruten – Minute by Minute”. For five and a half days, or 8,040 minutes, NRK broadcasted her sailing north from Bergen to Kirkenes; 3.2 million viewers tuned in to watch.

MS Nordnorge was refurbished in 2016 and now features a modern, Arctic-inspired interior. Onboard are three different restaurants, the Multe bakery and ice cream bar, a sauna and a fitness room. Out on deck you can enjoy the view from one of our two hot tubs. We have a comfortable bar at the front of the ship where you can enjoy a nice traditional drink, and a large compass area were you find reception, a tour guide, conference room and shop.
