Hurtigruten adds secluded fjord to 2013 itineraries

By Tom Stieghorst
For the first time in two decades, Norwegian cruise line Hurtigruten is expanding its operating area, adding one of the most secluded fjords in Norway to its itineraries.

Hurtigruten said ships traveling the west coast of Norway next year between Sept.1 and Oct. 31 will visit Hjorfund fjord, which is about 22 miles long and features steep rock walls and green meadows interspersed with mountain farms and small villages.

Hurtigruten said the new stop will shorten by two weeks the season guests can visit the Geiranger fjord, which will be visited from mid-April to the end of August.
