Hurtigruten promises guaranteed departures on Northern Lights tour

Hurtigruten has announced that all departures on its ‘Follow The Lights’ small-group tour are guaranteed.

The voyage departs Oslo, Norway to Finland and Estonia, and offers multiple opportunities to see the Northern Lights, as well as the best of Norway with Hurtigruten’s ‘Original Coastal Voyage’.

One of the many highlights of Hurtigruten’s Original Coastal Voyage is visiting the North Cape, which is the northernmost point on the European mainland.

Hurtigruten’s Follow The Lights voyage is the only Northern Lights tour to include this feature.

“When agents book Hurtigruten’s Follow the Lights, we will deliver a premium booking experience,” Hurtigruten Asia Pacific managing director Damian Perry said.

“And our exclusive Hurtigruten Northern Lights Promise means that if guests don’t see the Northern Lights on their Hurtigruten Follow The Lights tour, we will offer a free six- or seven-day Original Coastal Voyage, so they will have another opportunity to view the Northern Lights.

“Your guest will be one of the very few Australians that will have this opportunity to experience this unique journey.”

The voyage also includes the ‘Norway in a Nutshell’ tour and the seven-day northbound ‘Original Coastal Voyage’ from Bergen to Kirkenes.

The journey continues with a land tour that takes in Finland’s national parks, forests and lakes, Sámi culture, the Santa Claus village, Helsinki and a day trip to medieval Tallinn, Estonia.

Hurtigruten’s Follow the Lights has multiple departures in 2020 and 2021.
