Hurtigruten Offers Unique European Voyages For 2012

Norwegian cruise line Hurtigruten will be offering unique European voyages in 2012 alongside their traditional voyages. Hurtigruten’s expedition ship, MS Fram will be heading to Europe during the spring and autumn months visiting some of Europe’s most beautiful towns and cities.

The six voyages scheduled will visit Spain and France, the south western coast of Portugal, the Baltic coastline and St Petersburg and then head up to the North of Europe to visit Scotland, Greenland and Iceland.

The European voyages are idea sailings for Ms Fram. The ship is small in size, accommodating just 318 passengers, making it possible to visit many small ports much larger vessels are unable to access. Expedition leader Anja Erdmann, from MS Fram commented;
"The fantastic thing is that our ship can usually dock directly in the city harbours. Guests can walk straight into town from the quayside, or simply hop on the shuttle bus for the short ride.”

In Addition to the European voyages, MS Fran will also be sailing to Antarctica on a 19-day trans-Atlantic crossing from Las Palmas to Buenos Aires.

Guests onboard MS Fram voyages will be able to enjoy a variety of shore excursions alongside Hurtigrutens infamous lectures regarding the history, culture and environment of the places visited.

Autumn Adventure Voyage- The eight-day voyage will depart on the 19 September 2012 from Reykjavik, Iceland sailing to Bergen, Norway. Port calls will include Torshavn (Faroe Islands) Lerwick (Shetland Islands), Kirkwall (Orkney Islands) and Leith (Scotland).

Trans-Atlantic Crossing- The 19-day voyage will depart from Las Palmas in the Canary Islands on 14 October 2012 sailing to Buenos Aires.
