Next April (2016) Hurtigruten are offering passengers the chance to spend a night in Kirkenes, either in a regular hotel, in the Kirkenes Snow hotel or in a cabin in the grounds of the Snow hotel – all for free, when they book a seven day Classic Voyage South.
Those opting to stay in a regular hotel will also enjoy a dog sledging excursion (including a visit to the snow hotel) free of charge. The Kirkenes Snow Hotel is set in idyllic surroundings & includes Norway’s largest ice bar. When not in your suite, which is filled with art made from snow and ice, guests can meet huskies and reindeer, or warm up by a cosy fire in the Gabba restaurant.
The free night’s accommodation is valid for the night before the ship departs and on voyages departing between 1-20 April 2015.
Price start from £723 per person for the seven day voyage on full-board basis, including transfers in Kirkenes and the chosen accommodation. A range of departure dates are offered, including the 5 April voyage on MS Richard With. International flight prices cost from an additional £395 per person.
The seven day Classic Voyage South along the coast from Kirkenes to Bergen, includes numerous ports of call and excursions such as a trip to the North Cape, a chance to watch a midnight concert at the Arctic Cathedral in Tromso and a day sailing through the Lofoten islands.
