Hurtigruten in June

Submitted by Ole O.


In June of 2019, about 25 of us from Portland and Vancouver, took the Hurtigruten cruise along the coast of Norway roundtrip from Bergen to Kirkenes and back. Many of us were friends prior to the trip, led by Joy Schmieg, a travel agent from NW Portland. Quite a few are members of Columbia 58, the Sons of Norway lodge in Vancouver, WA.


After the cruise, 7 travelers continued from Bergen by train to Oslo, then Stockholm and Copenhagen. I was able to meet distant cousins for Frokost (breakfast) in Trondheim, Norway.
