Hurtigruten releases main brochure six months early

More charter flights are being introduced to serve Hurtigruten sailings along the Norwegian coast in 2013.

The company has released its full Norway brochure six months earlier than last year, replacing a preview programme usually published at this time.

A flexible pricing system has been introduced, providing agents with an incentive to drive early bookings by offering lower prices for customers the further in advance they book.

A total of 52 charter packages are being offered for next year, 12 more than for 2012.

The charters are available on two itineraries – the Arctic Highlights Voyage from Tromsø to Kirkenes and back and the Classic Round Voyage from Bergen to Kirkenes and back.

Flights from Belfast are being introduced and charters from Edinburgh expanded.

The number of charter departures from January to March to serve the Classic Round Voyage has doubled from three to six in 2012 due to demand.

A new five-day Taste of the Arctic winter itinerary from Bergen to Tromsø has been introduced together with two birdwatching excursions.

Eight new departure dates are available for the Arctic Highlights itinerary, departing on selected dates from January to March and October to December from four regional airports.

Overall prices lead in at £756 per person for a five-night Voyage South.

UK and Ireland head of sales Maxine Dunsdon said: “We are delighted to be able to launch our entire 2013 programme so early in the year and really hope agents will find it useful to help their customers plan and book their trips for 2013, taking advantage of the new flexible pricing system to get cheaper rates.

“The popularity of our charter departures has led to yet another increase for next year with more dates and airports added.

“Flight-inclusive voyages now feature in spring, autumn and winter across a wide range of itineraries, from a number of regional airports making it even easier and more cost-effective to book and travel with us.”
