The best way to get to know Norway's coast is by Hurtigruten mail ship. The term 'postal ship' still stands for the transportation of passengers and freight, is still one of the most important means of transportation in Norway. The modern ships of the Hurtigruten now has very little to do with a pure 'mai-ship'. You travel along a beautiful coast, past fjords and glaciers and enjoy all the amenities of a cruise ship. Or in Hurtigruten's own words: the most beautiful cruise in the world!
