Introducing MS Nordkapp

MS Nordkapp is named after on of the highlights of the Hurtigruten voyage, the northernmost point of mainland Europe, the North Cape (71°N). It has attracted explorers since it was named by Richard Chancellor who was passing the cape in 1553 while searching for the Northeast passage.  The ship was built in 1996, and on board you are surrounded by artworks from the renowned Norwegian artists, Karl Erik Harr.
