Hurtigruten 9 June - Polarlys


I've booked on the MS Polarlys from Alesund-Honnigsvag northbound on 9th June.

my ticket says it departs at 9.30am to Geiranger, but then returns to Alesund and leaves again at 6.45pm.

is there an option to stay longer in Alesund, and only board in the evening when the ship returns, and miss the Geiranger leg?

thanks Andrew

As far as I know, but you would have to discuss this with staff on reception. There is a self-scan ID machine checking people off/on which would need to know you were doing this - and you would want to make sure they remembered you in the evening!

Geiranger is really beautiful - so as long as the weather is OK (if you have not been there before) - I would not recommend missing thisd part of the trip.

If I am reading this correctly you will be boarding the ship in Alesund?

If this is the case and the ship returns to Alusund at 6.45pm I see no reason why you can't board then. People board and leave at every stop no matter how short it is.

Check with Hurtigruten

thanks for your quick responses.

I have been to Geiranger before, which is why I thought it might be an idea to spend the extra time in Alesund - but I already have 1 full day and 2 nights in Alesund, so maybe the trip is worth it.

I agree that Geiranger is especially beautiful.

I'll check with Hurtigruten anyway in advance, just so I know.
