  • Vesterålen was the name of the first coastal ship and is carried proudly by her modern counterpart. Vesterålen is also the name of the area in which Hurtigruten's first home port, Stokmarknes, is situated. 

    MS Vesterålen was built in 1983 and is named after the first Hurtigruten ship to sail in 1893, DS Vesterålen. Vesterålen lies just north of Lofoten and is home to some of the most beautiful scenery of the coastal voyage. The ship is one of the smallest ships in the fleet. She was upgraded both in 1988 and 1995, and is characterised by her bright, cheerful public areas and lounges. Throughout your voyage you will enjoy views from the panorama lounge and notice the extensive art collection on board. With the limited passenger capacity, a voyage on MS Vesterålen is truly something special.
