    Re: ::: Finnmarken :::

    Wonderful video and a perfect presentation of this unique ship. She is a very good evolution of all the Kong Harald to Nordnorge ships with a lot of good ideas. It is abolutely a wish of mine to sail on her one day. For me it is difficult to understand why they continiued with TF and MS in a different way. And you don't just need to compare the stern...

    Thank you for infecting me, arcticGateway!

    Of course you can embed it in your blog, thanks a lot!
    Four years ago I used the Finnmarken to relocate from Germany to Norway, I put all my stuff in a van and sailed with her from Bergen to Tromsø. I really love this ship!

    Just at the moment of berthing there have been very strong gusts heading exactly to the quay.
    During my christmas tour with "Nordnorge" the anchor was user 2 times in simular situations. ( 1:44 in this video)

    Errr - you don't seem to understand Ombugge! We ask the questions - you provide the answers!!

    Doesn't FM have azimuthing thrusters at the stern anyway which would make this even more surprising?

    Many great images here, and Carinas pictures might be worth a special mention.
    Now, is it only me or does she look really worn and torn so shortly after repaint?
    When looking at her appearance in Speedbirds images in post #666 there are brownish spots in the white all around, rusty marks running down from railings, black/sooty markings around windows and on the walls of the "over pool structure" and so on...
    Anyway, Sunday 26th I might have a look at this beauty myself as she's southbound in Kristiansund

    For any Aussies (or Dutch) who happen to look in here, who used to call this ship "home-away-from-home" for a period while she was at Barrow, here you can see what this ship is all about.

    She is not a Ferry and she is not a Cruise Ship, she is a "Hurtigrute", a very special type of ship, designed to carrying passengers, freight and some car up and down the Norwegian coast in all weather, calling at small ports day and night.

    Passengers comes and goes all along the coast, while some stay for the entire round trip of 11 days. Those are mostly foreign tourists who come to experience the Norwegian coast in all seasons. At this time of the year, also hoping to see the Aurora Borealis, in the summer to see the Midnight Sun.

    Maybe there will be an influx of Aussies on the Finnmarken this summer?

    By the way, does anybody know if she changed register to Norwegian International Shipregistry (NIS) during her stay in Oz??
    I see she is flying the Post flag again now.

    That's a great video - particularly enjoyed the Aurora stills at around 07:30 minutes. Thanks for sharing that with us!

    Oh yes! At second 3 in that video you can see how I was shaking the camera while turning it.

    I was glad to make a short trip from Bodø til Tromsø with Finnmarken.
    Here is a longer video of that trip:

    Absolutely stunning pictures from you pakarang, Speedbird and carinahansen.

    "Finnmarken" is back along the Norwegian coast where she belongs, to serve passengers and cargo along our beautiful coastline.

    I agree with you PoloUK, a stunning photo from Honningsvåg.

    And finally Tommi noticed the missing "Hurtigruten" on her hull. This struck me when I saw her tonight. Had not noticed that on the photos posted here earlier.
    Nice photos Carina with this mood and Speedbird !!

    I agree with PoloUK for the hull without logo

    Could that have something to do with her spending several weeks in Singapore while on the way home??
    Re-painting the hull, above and below water, doesn't take that amount of time.
