This time-lapse documents the 2600 km/134 hour journey of the Norwegian "Hurtigruten" from Bergen to Kirkenes, by some described as the world's most beautiful sea voyage. Norwegian public broadcaster NRK aired the entire journey live from the 16th to the 22nd of June 2011. Shortly after, Guinness Book of Records approved it as the longest continuously aired documentary in the world.

For those who are wondering, the time the ship was in the harbor was cut by NRK to save space, so that's why the ship enters and leaves the harbors so quickly.
