Built in 1956, it is no longer used on the traditional Hurtigruten service between Bergen and Kirkenes (a journey taking one week each way, with numerous stops in both towns and small remote places along the Norwegian coast), but is used for special cruises etc.Photo: The car ferry Tresfjord on it's way across the Moldefjord, operating the busy Molde - Vestnes servicePhoto: The car ferry Tresfjord on it's way across the Moldefjord, operating the busy Molde - Vestnes servicePhoto: Hurtigruten ship Nordkapp on it's way out from Molde. Hurtigruten means coastal express, and was once very important as a tranport service along the Norwegian coast between Bergen and Kirkenes, with numerous stops on the route. Today, the passengers are mostly tourists, but the service remains, with one northbound and one southbound departure every day year round.
