Hurtigruten’s promise: See the Northern Lights or sail again for free
Following unprecedented demand, Hurtigruten has extended its Northern Lights Promise to anyone booking a Classic Round Voyage before 31 December 2014.
The extension means that if you book a 12-day voyage departing by 31 March 2015, and the lights are not visible from your ship, you will get a second trip next year – for FREE!
If you don’t see the Northern Lights, then you can sail again
The season has already got off to a good start. Passengers on the MS Vesterålen last week were treated to not just one showing of the magical lights, but six.
Hurtigruten’s crews will be scouring the night skies for an appearance of the dancing light show. If they don’t make an appearance, Hurtigruten will offer you a choice of a 7-day Classic Voyage North or 6-day Classic Voyage South, in an inside twin cabin (full board basis), departing between 1 October 2015 and 31 March 2016. Flights are not included.
The 12-day Classic Round Voyage travels along the Norwegian coastline from Bergen up to Kirkenes, where it turns around and starts its journey south. As well as passing directly beneath the auroral zone, the ships sail away from the light pollution on land – enhancing the likelihood of an occurrence of the magical lightshow.
Whether Mother Nature decides to put on a show or not, you will find plenty to do during your Arctic Voyage, from husky sledging to snowmobiling, a visit to the Arctic Cathedral in Tromso or a chance to explore the North Cape – the northernmost point of mainland Europe.
Prices for the Classic Round Voyage start from £999 per person in an inside cabin on full board basis (based on two sharing), departing on a wide choice of dates. Flight and transfer packages start from £330 per person.
