Win a trip up the Norwegian fjords

501943_num1091392One of the best holidays I took was a trip from Bergen to Kirkenes and back visiting some of the Norwegian fjords. Here is your opportunity to do the same.

The Norwegian company, Hurtigruten, isn’t really a cruise line but a ferry company that has been linking a number of towns along the coastline for decades. But people do cruise either up or down the coastline or, as in my case, do the return voyage.

Next year a new ship joins the fleet but it needs a name. Come up with something suitable and you and a friend could be joining her as the special guest of the Captain, on the voyage along the Norwegian coast. The ship, which has been temporarily called ‘MS Norway, has to have a name that starts with “MS” and has to be a Norwegian word or words or be an international word of Norwegian origin, for example the word “fjord”. Other ships in the fleet are named after natural phenomena, places along the Hurtigruten route or key figures in Norwegian history. Entrants can upload their suggestion to Hurtigruten’s Facebook page between 21 July and 10 August and the winner will enjoy a voyage on the new ship next year.

The prize will include flights, cabin on full-board basis and excursions.
