One of the oldest ships in the Hurtigruten fleet, MS Lofoten was built in 1964 and has continued to be a favourite for many regular Hurtigruten passengers. She underwent a refurbishment in 2004 and as such has recently been listed as a historical monument in Norway.
Able to carry a maximum of 410 passengers, this small scale vessel has plenty of character and is a regular visitor to the waterways of the Svalbard Archipelago. By the time she had celebrated her 50th birthday she had travelled almost 3 million nautical miles, transported 1.25 million guests and docked over 75,000 times in Hurtigruten ports. Incredible.

MS Lofoten Entertainment
One of the great things about a Hurtigruten cruise is the opportunity to explore and learn about your chosen sailing in depth and as Hurtigruten themselves claim ‘Mother Nature provides the entertainment’. As such, your time onboard will be more about relaxing and enjoying the views rather than dancing the night away to the early hours. However, certain voyages will include onboard lectures and conferences.
