  Hurtigruta approaches Ålesund
by Saagar

The Coastal Express Liner (Hurtigruta) this year 2005 introduces a 21-day flexible ticket for NOK 2900 - travel as much and where you want for 21 days. You can jump off or on at any scheduled harbour with this ticket. The ticket does not include cabin and meals, but provides discounts on board as well as with the Rica Hotel chain on land. Like with an interrail ticket it is a personal ticket.

Cabin: NOK 275,- p. p. in double cabin, single cabin NOK 325,-
Hotel on land (Rica) NOK 350,- p. p. in double room, single 550,-
The ticket "Hurtigrutepasset" can be purchased at:
? Ofotens og Vesteraalens Dampskibsselskab asa,
phone +47 76 96 76 93
? Troms Fylkes Dampskipsselskab asa, phone +47 77 64 81 00
? On board all Hurtigrute ships
? In the Rica Hotel receptions in Norway.

This will make the coast travels more affordable and the Coastal Express liner a more viable option for backpack travelling in Norway.
