Hurtigruten in summer VS Hurtigruten in winter

If you want to take Hurtigruten but don’t know for which period you should book, let me tell you 2 things: all seasons are great to travel and the weather is very unpredictable all year round. This uncontrollable parameter makes each journey unique.

Having say that, as you can imagine, traveling in winter is much cheaper than in summer. Indeed, the trip we did this March was twice less expensive than the one we took in June 2 years ago and we had a better cabin.

I took the southbound trip in summer and the northbound trip in winter.
I collected some of my best pictures to show the difference between the 2 seasons and maybe help you to make up your mind.

I haven’t taken Hurtigruten in spring or autumn yet. But I bet I will because once you have finished one trip, you already want to take it again!
