One of a fleet of luxury ships plying the Norwegian coastal route between Kirkenes to Bergen, the Kong Harald carries up to 622 passengers and cargo in and out of Norway’s gorgeous fjords. The ships interior is a fine reflection of the glorious surroundings, with grand public rooms named after Norwegian explorers (the ship is named after the King of Norway) and a panoramic lounge.
There’s plenty of Norwegian art on board too, a light-filled gallery lounge and a bar with huge windows, but the real draw is the majestic surroundings. These allow passengers to experience some thrilling activities on shore, including dog-sledging and exhilarating hikes, before returning to the Kong Harald to watch the captivating coastline with a cocktail in hand.
