Winter and Hunting the Light
A winter expedition along the coast of Norway is a beautiful experience. The landscape is covered in pure white snow; the air is fresh, pure and crisp. Clusters of cosy houses glow on the shores like embers, and the stunning backdrop of snow-clad mountains reflects the polar twilight.

Hunting the light
Join Hurtigruten in hunting the Aurora Borealis, a major element of the winter journey. In the winter, the sun is low on the horizon and, north of the Arctic Circle, can even be below the horizon for some weeks. This natural phenomenon creates beautiful shades of light. The Northern Lights are something else entirely! For thousands of years people in the northern part of the world have marvelled at the spectacular displays that occasionally light up the night sky. Sailing with Hurtigruten will provide the best possibilities to experience the magic colour show from light green to dark purple flickering across the Arctic sky.
