    Re: ::: Finnmarken :::

    Oh, yes i remember this picture. I think it was the old forum!
    Take care to get up early to meet the northbound Richard With at 06.15!
    You're already in winter schedule. Afterwards you can have a shower and be the first at breakfast. Then you will have plenty of daylight until you reach Bergen!

      Thank you Ralf, for that very good advice!!
      (Better hold back on the beer then...)

      Seriously, that sound like a good thing to do, but travelling with colleagues..., everything can happen

        Re: ::: Finnmarken :::

        I have to correct myself, in October the ships travel now to Hjoerundfjorden, so the meet up with RW will be at 04.15. This is a time, where i am sleeping 100% and won't get up (sorry i looked in an older schedule). So you will see only Nordlys about 21.30 in Molde. But anyway i recommend to use the first daylight to get up. The route is beautiful. My plan would be to stay awake until departing Alesund and then go to bed around 01.00. Maloy is 5.45, that is maybe too early, but i would to have breakfast finished until the Floroe stop at 08.15. So sleep until 07.00, have a shower and the first coffee in the restaurant at 07.30.
        That will enable both, beer in the evening and daylight the next morning.
        And generally....there will be a lot of nights with plenty of time for sleeping. The night aboard certainly is not such one.

          I agree, personally this is my very first distance trip with a hurtigrute, so I'd better not sleep too much.
          Other than that, we will also have one night at a hotel in Bergen, so as you say..., one can always sleep another night.

            One thing that is for sure, is that I will board FINNMARKEN 4. October for a trip to Bergen together with colleagues.
            At 1100 hours, FM is passing through Ytre Steinsundet in Solund, the narrowest spot on the whole passage! You should be prepared at least one hour in advance (from Alden on), phantastic landscape.....

              Many good traveling tips and info here, thanks!
              As a guy never able to decide wether starboard or port side is best at places like Sigve describe, I think I'd better find my place at the 'bakken' (bow deck)

                Yes but be sure to get quick at the stern after passing this point. The ship's trace on the water shows some nice curves then...

                  I think - and I've said it before - that this is the most well proportioned HRG ship today. She is just beautiful looking and through your imagery, perfect!

                    Dear Bengt,

                    That last picture is actually quite awesome. Reminds me of the numerous arrivals I have witnessed in Rørvik over the years.

                    Here is a recent video I did: you might all recognize the ship in this video, or not?

                      How do you know that your Quadcopter is going to come home, and not just take a nose dive into the fjord taking the camera with it?

                    Beautiful lady, golden sunset. Fantastic photo.
                    Cheers,

                    Mark.

                      Yes. Among all these wonderful pictures by Bengt, this is extraordinary and enlarges my wish to travel on her some day...

                              Thanks, cecilia, for linking to my "trip report" !!
                              I clicked on the link myself, and suddenly I got aware: I did not post a picture of FINNMARKEN.
                              (Of course this is due to the fact that for once in life...., the photographer was on board) :-D
