The first Hurtigruteship "Vesterålen" leaves from Trondheim to Hammerfest in July 1893, Stokmarknes was the homeport. The Coastal Steamer (Hurtigruten) has daily departures in Stokkmarknes.
The World´s Most Beautiful Voyage is a voyage like no other. Nothing can compare with it. Nothing about this journey will resemble anything you have ever experienced before. A ticket for the Coastal Express is a ticket to the theatre, an 11-day drama in which new acts constantly unfold all around you.
Located in Stokmarknes you will find "Hurtigrutemuseet". Specialty museum of the history of the Coastal Steamer. Interpretation centre with ship models, films and slide shows.
