Winter tourism in the north is picking up, and a record number of cruise ships will head to Norway next year, according to Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).

Tromsø, Alta, and the North Cape will have more cruises in 2022 than in 2019. Furthermore, 154 ships are expected in the North Cape in 2022, compared with 99 in 2019.

In addition, more cruise ships are expected in Oslo, Ålesund, and the Hardangerfjord.

“The figures show a strong increase in the number of cruises in 2022, but we do not have figures on how many passengers the individual ships will have on board,” general manager Inge Tangerås in Cruise Norway, an organization that represents all cruise ports in Norway, stated.
