    Thank you for the link Ralf.


      The two hurtigrute ships "Richard With" and "Vesterålen" operate an extra ordinary route between Bodø - Kirkenes - Bodø (6 days) during these corona times.
      Both ships on their first roundtrip south Tromsø strait.

      All other sailings are canceled during this period.

      Only guests who have been in Norway for the past 14 days may come on board. Body temperature measurement will be performed on boarding. Guests with a fever (temperature above 38 ° C) will not be allowed to board. Before boarding, all passengers must complete a health and travel history form.

      Guests who, during the last 14 days prior to boarding, have had close contact with or helped to care for people suspected or diagnosed with coronavirus (COVID-19), will be denied boarding. This also applies to people who are subject to health monitoring after possible exposure to COVID-19.

      The vessels will secure important transport of local passengers, goods and necessary goods.

      The vessels have clear and rigorous hygiene procedures to create a safe environment on board. The vessels have further strengthened their cleanliness and introduced strict procedures for disinfecting common areas.

      For the time being, it will not be possible for non-traveler guests to visit the Hurtigruten ship while in port.

      We plan to start resuming the normal sailing schedule from April 20.
