Lofoten Islands, June 20th
After the ship departs Murmansk, she heads north to the Berents Sea one more time, then heads westward past Nordkapp to the northwestern side of Norway. A wonderful treat awaits the passengers, as they have the opportunity to explore the Lofoten Islands. The first time we had the chance to visit these islands, we were on Hurtigruten's ship "Richard With". We decided to stay on board ship, since we were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary that evening, and the ship's crew planned a very nice dinner treat for us. Last year, I finally was able to see the exquisite beauty of these special islands.
