    Tommi, I have realised why I am particularly delighted by your photos of this ship. It is because they are the kind of images that folk are usually taking of details, motifs, people and life onboard the remaining traditional ships.

    Indeed, you referred to the heritage of hurtigruten in one of your captions.

    I think that your photography could help those people who have never travelled on the newer ships to start to see them in this way and begin to appreciate them more.

      Thank you for your polite comments, I'll see if I find some more interesting pictures of TF, probably within a week or so.

        Do we have any musicians here? I would love to know what the Trollfjord Valsen sounds like. Maybe someone could make an MP3.

          I think these particular comments from me were more passionate than polite actually! I often feel I’m a little bit unusual in adoring both the most traditional and some of the most recent of the current Hurtigruten fleet (and I have sailed on them all, including Fram) with equal enthusiasm.

          Perhaps it is a function of when I first “discovered” Hurtigruten. Well, I always knew about the coastal ships and the route, but only got to experiencing it for the first time in 2003. Therefore I just missed many of the traditional ships by a few years.

          My ship enthusiasm in the few years before my first travels to Norway and on hurtigruten was for the Göta canal in Sweden, and I had a number of trips on all three ships, Wilhelm Tham, Juno and Diana. It is only because these journeys for the most part predate my shift to digital photography that this is not apparent from my posts here on CaptainsVoyage!

          Look forward to more photos from your travels.

            Bit slow connection just now, and managed to duplicate a post in the process ... anyway I'll utilise it by editing, as I see that meanwhile Clipper came in with an interesting suggestion, but even a seagull who is actually named after the Patron Saint of Music isn't up to the challenge.

                    More details of Trollfjord

                    Thanks Keelson for the fresh pictures of m/v Trollfjord.

                    I promised some more, so here we go:


                    On the steerboard side we find the rather nice library, that however seems to be a bit forgotten.


                    Outside the conference auditorium.


                    The spacious stairs.


                    There's really a lot of space.


                    More space.


                    Trollhall by night.

                    More to come...

                          Oh goodness, there are many brilliant new shots of the ship! Fantastic work all of you!

                              The outer fifth deck on Trollfjord is really nice.





                              The view through the hatch.


                              And if you stretch a bit you will find the ships bell.


                              By the way, Trollfjord (and Midnatsol?) has electrical mooring winches, while the most of the HR ships are equipped with hydraulic powered winches.

                                I for some reason simply love these detail shots.... they show the ship from a different angle and they are a clear statement that you do have a great talent!
