    Oioioi... those are some pretty aggressive plans for future development of the platou. I'm not sure, based on the little information I have, whether this is good or bad.

    A luxury hotel is out of reach for most Norwegians and will be something for the high end of tourists. A luxury hotel needs infrastructure. A hotel will transform this quiet area and pure nature-experience will perhaps disappear. One of the things that I like with the place is that it's so quiet and so wild (wild nature).

    Uhm... I think I need some more information and time to make up a better and more educated opinion.

    I didn't know that Scandic and Rica are the owners of the area. Learned something new again.

      It has been reported earlier that Hurtigruten will be powering their ships in part by "rotten fish" after conversion to meet the new emission requirements.
      Here is some more realistic description of the systems involved: http://www.ngvglobal.com/blog/hoglun...retrofits-0322
      It is true that rotten fish may be one of the ingredients used to produce the biogas though.

            This is definately not the right thread for this, but in case you are interested in actual BOOKs (not e-books), Wangsmo Antikvariat in Trondheim does have a couple of books about Hurtigruten in their latest catlogue....

            PS: These are all second hand books.

                So, if I read this correctly, the ships will be renamed as follows:

                Trollfjord ---> Maud

                Midnatsol ---> Eirik Raude

                Finnmarken ---> Otto Sverdrup

                I do understand WHY they are doing it, and I think its a great idea. At the same time, I feel sad at loosing these traditional names from the coast.... but, as we all know, this is the future we need to get used to now. Hurtigruten is not what it used to be either.

                  Their plans of operating the ships parallel to the Havila fleet is also a clear declaration of war to them. Havila is going to have a very difficult start. First they will never ever have the ships ready in time and then they will have to market their trips at the same dates against a long experienced organisation. Phoo!!

                Good point, Ralf.

                I agree with you that it's going to be though for Havila in the beginning. I think they will eventually be doing well, but it's going to be though for everyone nonetheless.

                    Oouuff!! I expect this also in a couple of days from and to Hamburg. Will this be a replacement for the classic roundtrip? Let me think about it...
                    And for you a short and comfortable route to Honningsvag? I guess, not hurtig enough?!

                  How dare they skip on Trondheim on that cruise? LOL..... perhaps another ship, another time.

                    Nothing but a RUMOR, and what people talk about... but Hurtigruten now owns most of the tourist related businesses at Svalbard.

                    Haven't been able to find anything online about it (yet).
