People have travelled along the Norwegian coastline with “Hurtigruten” since 1893. The journey is known as “The World’s Most Beautiful Sea
Voyage”. Now everybody can travel along in the world’s longest TV program! Spectacular fjords, midnight sun and genuine Norwegian scenery make the
setting for a trip from Bergen to Kirkenes. We broadcast the whole trip live minute by minute for 134 hours!
Right now, they're heading for Rørvik. Make sure to watch when they arrive Rørvik, some 4 hours from now. I have a feeling that it will be
spectacular. The live stream is at the link above. Must see! Below is a promo video, to give you an idea of what it is about. I've travelled on these
ships numerous times, in all kinds of weather (storm too).

They've just left Stamsund. After their next destination, Svolvær (short trip from Stamsund), they'll be at Raftsund and Trollfjord, one of the
most beautiful places. Google
images for "Trollfjord" and you'll see what I mean.
A 134-hour long live broadcast of footage from the coastal steamer Hurtigruten’s cruise along the scenic coast of Norway became a major success
with more than half of Norway’s population tuning in to watch.
NRK’s "minute-by-minute" coverage of MS Nordnorge’s voyage from Bergen in the southwest to Kirkenes in the northeast started on Thursday and
included all on-board announcements and views from 11 cameras focusing on the spectacular fjords, boat traffic around the ship, officers on the bridge
and passengers strolling the decks and taking in the scenery.
The pictures were accompanied by natural sound of the ship’s humming engines and the waves breaking against the ship’s bow.
All the footage from the forward facing camera mounted on “MS Nordnorge” is available for full HD for download via BitTorrent on
NRK, and it is free for everybody to share and remix the material. NRK has even a best
competition for the best mashup project based on content from Hurtigruten. The first
timelapse video is already out.
