This is one of the real classics in Hurtigruten’s excursion program. Today we will experience history, beautiful scenery and a selection of breathtaking sights. We begin with a short sightseeing through the streets of Harstad, before moving on to the Trondenes peninsula. Here, you visit the white medieval church, which is one of our premier cultural heritage sites from the late Middle Ages. You are truly on historic ground and in Trondenes Historical Centre, you’ll find an exciting exhibition complete with sounds, smells and original objects from the region throughout history; from the Viking and Middle Ages, to the present day.
The bus then takes us across Hinnøya Island, where we can enjoy a view of beautiful fjords, steep mountains and large fertile agricultural areas. Moving on, you will cross the Gullesfjord by ferry, which will give you a chance to enjoy a hot drink and some freshly baked cakes. The tour then continues along the Sigerfjord to Sortland where you rejoin your ship.
This excursion is a beautiful experience in all seasons; idyllic in the summer, but just as picture perfect in winter.
