Exploring the crystal clear fjords with a unique perspective on the Western Norway landscape.
The Hjørundfjord cuts deep into the lush alpine Sunnmøre Alps and is one of the longest fjords in Norway. Even though the fjord alpine landscape here is regarded as a national treasure, the Hjørundfjord is something of a secret that most travelers miss.
This means you can travel past steep rock walls, green meadows, and isolated mountain farms, at your own pace, far from the rush.
Not many cruise ships sail into the majestic Hjørundfjord, but @Hurtigruten sails here every year from September 1st to October 30th.

Oh, wow! I actually have a face! Here’s a rare photo that doesn’t just show the back of my head.😂 On a different note, this sunset aboard Hurtigruten’s MS Spitsbergen was pretty spectacular.😍
Want to catch the most incredible views of Norwegian sunsets and the west coast? Here’s a tip when planning a trip with Hurtigruen: if you can, chose your departure date from Bergen based on the ship departing that day. Hurtigruten has a whole fleet of ships that come in different sizes and offer different amenities. They rotate through their ships roughly every 12 days. The MS Spitsbergen’s top floor is an impressive outdoor deck. It played a pretty critical role in catching #AwesomeViews. Not all ships have a massive rooftop deck!🌅
