The Hurtigruten is probably one of the most famous ferry routes in the world and has now developed into a popular route for cruising. Since its inception in 1893, the Hurtigruten has continued to fascinate and attract travellers from all over the world, sailing along a coastline which has no equal with over half of the journey north of the Arctic Circle. It is an intriguing tale about a unique transport artery which has a mission and a duty extending far beyond tourism, the Hurtigruten being an integral part of the coastal community from which it gains its livelihood. Today the Hurtigruten operates a fleet of modern cruise ferries and attracts passengers from all over the world. The book is incredibly well researched and describes the entire evolution of the company in minute detail. An appendix includes the details and history of every ship that has sailed on this service. A particularly pleasing feature of this book is the quality of the photographs, in particular of some of the older vessel that have operated on the route. This is a first class book and I would very highly recommend it to our readers. Shipping Today and Yesterday July 2013About the Author:
