World's longest Travel Broadcast?

This is a travel TV at the extreme! On Thursday 16 June, Hurtigruten and the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) will embark on a 134-hour (8040 minutes) non-stop live broadcast. At least nine cameras will be used during the voyage from Bergen to Kirkenes on board MS Nordnorge to stream the action live into homes across Norway and via the Internet to the rest of the world.

The show will feature real experiences on a minute-by-minute basis including interviews with the guests and crew along the way. NRK have dedicated their second largest channel NRK2 to the show. During the 134-hour broadcast, viewers watching the show will be able to experience the amazing Norwegian coastline, celebrated worldwide for its natural beauty and untouched scenery. The itinerary includes the western fjords with UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord, the coast of Helgeland, the Lofoten Islands, Tromsø, the gateway to the Arctic, and the North Cape. The route of course includes a wealth of other breathtaking sights.

So whether you fancy whetting your appetite, or want to relive a trip you have done in the past, go to http://hurtigruten.co.uk/live where the show will be streamed live. For Hurtigruten cruises visit The Cruise Line.
