Hurtigruten offers savings for Norway coastal voyages

Hurtigruten, formerly Norwegian Coastal Voyage, is offering free trans-atlantic airfare for both passengers in a double-occupancy cabin on selected 12-day voyages along the Norway coast in March or April, or between October and mid-December, 2008.

Free companion air tickets are available for selected six- and seven-day voyages during the same time period. Or you can get 50 percent off a companion ticket for May and September sailings.

You can combine the airfare offers with discounts ranging up to $500 per person on the same cruises.

Those booking a southbound trip (ending in Bergen) will also receive a free shore excursion.

To be eligible for these discounts, you must book by March 15, 2008.

For more information on available dates, click here for the Hurtigruten website (then click on "News" in the upper righthand corner of the homepage) or call 866-257-6071 or a travel agent.

Having sailed on the Norwegian Coastal Voyage in 2006, I can attest that Hurtigruten's slogan "The World's Most Beautiful Voyage" is hardly an exaggeration; the scenery (mountains, fjords, island fishing villages) is staggering throughout.
