      Looks like Hurtigruten has changed their mind and returned to Geiranger: https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais...sel:VESTERALEN

        Well, not a recent change of mind, although ombugge thought they had cancelled Geiranger in post Seagull away a While #450.on 27th April. But I had been checking excursions on the website and the next day (in #451) reported “I believe that in Hurtigruten-speak May is in "Spring" and June is in "Summer" - and the Geiranger detour is only in Summer".

        I picked up the thick, 4 language, lavishly illustrated 165 page (!) Excursion book when I was aboard Spitsbergen. It is certainly much easier than clicking on the website! This is what happens northbound:-

        Geiranger during June, July and August
        Hjørundfjord during September and October
        Ålesund longer stopover (12 noon to 15:00) in months November to May

          2. July 1893 at 8:30 AM, captain Richard With left Brattøra on board DS Vesteraalen for Hammerfest. That means Hurtigruten celebrate 125 years today, so happy birthday and may the route continue for 125 more

            A very Happy Birthday to Hurtigruten, may the future be filled with many more years, nautical miles, milestones and other technological advancements!

            Bon Voyage into the future!

            I was supposed to visit the ship today in Trondheim to enjoy a piece of cake and coffee, but arrived in port just before departure only to get a couple of pictures.
