Stok­marknes & Wha­le­watching – 22nd May, 2017

We are pas­sing Stok­marknes on the way north and we make a litt­le stop the­re. This is whe­re the famous Hur­tig­ru­ten was inven­ted, the coas­tal stea­mer line that con­nec­ted north Nor­way to the rest of the coun­try and thus to the world. They have dedi­ca­ted a muse­um to the Hur­tig­ru­ten in Stok­marknes. And if you come with a ship, then you are wel­co­med by a who­le Hur­tig­ru­ten ship on the shore!

They are cur­r­ent­ly doing a lot of work on the muse­um, but it is alrea­dy defi­ni­te­ly well worth a visit.
