After 55 years of sailing, MS Lofoten is sadly retiring from service. However, Hurtigruten have plenty of other fantastic ships waiting to take you on unforgettable adventures.
MS Lofoten, old time favourite, was launched in Oslo in 1964, and provides a voyage of real nostalgia with an intimate, informal atmosphere. The ship is named after the Lofoten Islands just north of the Arctic Circle, famous for their dramatic scenery and often described as 'a masterpiece.' MS Lofoten is the second Hurtigruten ship to carry this name. She was refurbished and refitted in 2003, but most of the original style and atmosphere are preserved. With unique lounges and panoramic decks, this 'old lady' is simply incomparable. The cabins are plain, but very cosy.
The Hurtigruten favourite Coastal Kitchen is the star of the show when it comes to dining onboard MS Lofoten. Guests can indulge on exquisitely-prepared buffets of seafood such as prawns, crab and salmon, all sourced from local suppliers at each port the ship visits.
Holding only 100 passengers, you can expect to spend your free time socialising with other like-minded guests in the comfortable lounge or admiring the breathtaking coastline from the panoramic deck.
