Hurtigruten Cruise Focuses on Life and Music of Edvard Grieg

Do your clients like classical music? Do they like cruising? Do they like cruising Norway, specifically? Then they'll love this: Guests can listen to orchestral music and exclusive piano concerts as they learn about Edvard Grieg, Norway’s best-known classical composer, on Hurtigruten’s “Hall of the Mountain King” theme cruise this fall. 

While they look out over Norway’s scenic fjords and coastline, guests take in recitals featuring soloist Rune Alver, who has performed with a number of orchestras throughout Europe, and lectures by Eilif Løtveit, who has spent 35 years working closely with the Troldhaugen estate, Grieg’s former home. The two available departures—a seven-day northbound voyage on October 9 and a six-day southbound on October 15—sail between Bergen and Kirkenes, above the Arctic circle.

Bonus: A range of optional excursions, including a visit to Edvard Grieg’s former home, are also available. The available optional excursions are designed to let guests delve deeper into the facets of Norwegian culture that interest them most. Visitors can tour Grieg's first home, Troldhaugen, or take a tour of Norway’s original capital of Trondheim, a large city with old-world charm that is home to the renowned Nidaros Cathedral. For a memorable dinner, they can try a Viking feast in a genuine Viking banquet hall, complete with live entertainment and home-brewed mead.
