Vesteralen

Ship Rating:


MS Vesteralen was built in 1983 and is named after the first Hurtigruten ship to sail in 1893, DS Vesteralen. Vesteralen is also the name of the area in which Hurtigruten's first home port, Stokmarknes, is situated. Vesteralen lies just north of Lofoten and is home to some of the most beautiful scenery of the coastal voyage.

The ship is one of the smallest ships in the fleet. She was upgraded both in 1988 and 1995, and is characterized by her bright, cheerful public areas and lounges. Throughout your voyage you will enjoy views from the panorama lounge and notice the extensive art collection on board. With the limited passenger capacity, a voyage on MS Vesterålen is truly something special.
