                There are amazing pictures on that thread!

                I took my first Hurtigruten trip on April 2006 on board the MS Lofoten, and I fell in love. I fell in love with the journey, but I also fell in love with the ship. So I'm going back for a Bergen/Kirkenes/Svolvaer trip that leaves Bergen on March 3rd (just over a week from now! I'm so excited).

                I have many pictures of her taken during that first trip, which I'll be happy to post here if it is OK?

                Here is a picture of the first time I saw her in Bergen. It was love at first sight!

                    Re: ::: Lofoten :::

                    Since there are already so many great pictures of her from the outside in this thread, I will post mainly pictures taken from the inside while sailing (or some views from the quay, hopefully with a different point of view).

                    This one was taken on our first evening after leaving Bergen. In French we call that time of the day "the blue hour". I was amazed to see that in Norway, at this season, the blue hour actually lasts for hours! (even for the whole night when we arrived in the north). The light is so delicate, it's like a dream.



                    These were taken leaving Geirangerfjord (it was the first trip of the season going to Geiranger) and arriving in Ålesund.

                      Re: ::: Lofoten :::

                      This is one of the best outside spot for me : sheltered from the wind and the rain, and with an open view to the landscape behind the ship (that is, if you actually manage to keep your eyes open! )
                      (I actually don't know the people in this picture, so if you think it is better not to post it, just let me know).



                      A classic view, in Molde.



                      And in Ørnes



                      An hour before, we had crossed path with the MS Finnmarken



                      And in the evening, a rather bumpy ride to the Lofoten islands:

                        In Finnsnes there is a great view of the ship:







                        Arriving in Kjollefjord (and another great outdoor spot)



                        And at our northernmost point, near Mehamn

                          We really enjoyed the feeling of being on board a working ship. At every stop it was amazing to see how the captain would manage to get to the dock (and leave the dock), and to watch cargo being loaded and unloaded.

                              Oh Sarnia, I enjoyed your photos so much. Just looking at the one at the end of post #558 is to experience the Vestfjord in such seas!!!!

                              Somehow I keep coming back to #559. I like that image with the person looking down and the new sea-green ropes, now arrived on the quay at Finnsnes (we saw them on the fore deck on an earlier photo!). #561/1 is also for me a special favourite, with the lifeboat details in perfect focus and beyond someone working.

                              And I’m absolutely delighted to hear you will be aboard her again so soon….

                              The software that runs our forum board hasn’t a Calendar drop-down-list update for years from 2012, so make a note everyone – Sarnia is sailing Bergen/Kirkenes/Svolvaer aboard Lofoten, departing Bergen on March 3rd
                              With so much excitement about Finnmarken’s return to service and Nordstjernen’s departure, I wouldn’t want our members’ voyages on other ships to get overlooked!

                                Re: ::: Lofoten :::

                                Thank you so much Cecilia. The picture of the boat in Finnsnes is also one of my favourites, it sums up the feeling of being on a working boat and the pleasure to be a part of a journey that has a meaning (a meaning besides the absolute wonders of the landscape we sail through).

                                I understand perfectly well (and I share) the excitment over Finnmarken and Nordstjernen. During my trip I will stop for 2 days in Svolvaer and then proceed to Trondheim aboard the Vesteraalen. If I'm not mistaken, our path should cross the Nordstjernen's last voyage, somewhere between Ørnes and Nessna, in the morning of March 14th, and I will be on the deck waving like crazy!

                                I have a few more pictures of the Lofoten to post before I leave (and hopefully a lot more to post when I return! ) .
