Train and Hurtigruten Cruise

We are planning a trip to Norway late May-early June. Would like to take the train from Oslo north to Boto....spend some time in Svolver/Stamsund(Lofoten islands) and then take a Hurtigruten cruise south to Bergen. Has anyone done this trip or part of this trip. Advice and suggestions, please

Try to search these forums as there are many detailed reports about Hurtigruten.

At this time of year there is 24 hour daylight north of Trondheim.

Train is nice, about 10 hours from Trondheim to Bodø:

Hi there.

Make sure you get your reservations in for the Hurtigruten well in advance. We have been trying to book a port to port sector, but are having no luck in either direction in May. It appears to me that most of the berths are reserved or booked for people doing the full voyage either way, and anyone wishing to do a shorter sector should book as early as possible.

I haven't quite figured out how to post a message without making it as a reply to someone else's, so I apologize for not doing it 'the right way.' My question is regarding the birding excursion from the Hurtigruten voyage north. Has anyone done it? I'd like to know how 'successful' it is for seeing birds, before we sign up. Thanks! Sherri
