This is now being shown live on Norwegian tv. The Hurtigruten coast liner, Bergen to Kirkenes, along the Norwegian coast. Live stream at this link


Hurtigruten: Minute by minute


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).

When I and my ex-partner owned a travel agency many years ago we sold tours with Hurtigruten like crazy - mostly to American and rich Italian tourists.

So I always wanted to go on a trip but unfortunately never had the opportunity, yet! But someday I will hopefully go!

Thanks for posting the link!

Soon (within 20 minutes or so), they'll visit Torghatten. I've been inside that hole.

I've been watching it live for a while and I really want to be out to sea myself, right now!

Norway and the North is so damn beautiful this time of year, especially the midnight sun!

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.

They've given the passengers Trollfjord soup. Trollfjord is up next

Did you see (and hear) when the southbound and the northbound met?

...and did you see the 6 or 7 black helicopters flying around the ship?

It was a hit. A complete video in Full HD of the forward facing camera is available for download (free to share and remix).


Coastal steamer fantastic TV hit


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.

But that's just the forward facing camera...

Here's another video. Some highlights. There's a lot missing in this video, but.. anyway.... There are also some parts here that I didn't see live because I was asleep.
