The Most Beautiful Voyage

Coming up during Christmas week there’s going to be a great new program being broadcasted on Public Television channels across the U.S., called A Norway Passage-The Most Beautiful Voyage.  The one-hour program is drawn from a remarkable live, six-day, 24 hour per day documentary, titled Hurtigruten: Minutt for Minutt, produced in 2011 by NRK, Noway's national broadcaster.

The program, which follows the voyage of Hurtigruten’s NordNorge ship takes the viewer along to witness some of the most beautiful Norwegian landscapes and vistas. I’ve watched the video a couple of times already and was really impressed with the combination of breathtaking visuals, informative narration and opulent soundtrack. It’s definitely worth an hour in front of a TV or computer screen.

Now, if you’ve got more time on your hands and really want to get the full effect, I encourage you to watch the complete 134 hour broadcast (it takes a minute or so to load, but is well worth it). If your time is a bit more limited, though, definitely check out the Most Beautiful Voyage broadcast. All you have to do is check your local listings to see when it will run during Christmas week.

If you do watch either of the programs mentioned here, I’d love to know what your favorite part or location was. Share in the comments below.
