As the colours of the gorgeous Canadian landscape turn to famous fall hues of brown, yellow and red, experience destinations picked for their natural beauty, with forests, trails and natural parks within reach for opportunities to go ‘leaf peeping’ and experience Canada at its breathtaking best. At the heart of this incredible itinerary are four memorable days in beautiful Quebec province, one of the best places to observe Canada’s natural beauty. You could revel in the quintessentially autumnal scenes of Parc National de la Jacques-Cartier on tour from Quebec, which is also the gateway to the Laurentian Mountains, and Parc National de la Mauricie from Trois Rivieres. The rugged scenery of Manicouagan Uapishka Biosphere Reserve surrounds Baie-Comeau and begs for exploration, while Havre St Pierre is a delight with its quaint town and scenic surroundings.[ReadMore]

Elsewhere in Canada, there are two visits to the state of Newfoundland, brimming with old world charm and the beauty of picturesque countryside and coastlines. At St John’s, the views on offer from Signal Hill are not to be missed, especially at this time of the year, and Cape Spear – Canada’s easternmost point – is a short journey away. Meanwhile, a visit to Corner Brook is a chance to follow in Captain Cook’s footsteps and explore the city’s shores; or opt to tour to the vibrant, UNESCO-listed Gros Morne National Park, with its forest-framed fjords, mountains and thundering waterfalls. If all that’s not enough, you’ll take a journey along the Saguenay River and appreciate fjord-like landscapes from your ship, plus visit Port Saguenay for tours to the beautiful Saguenay Fjord National Park. Before returning to Liverpool you will have the chance to visit Belfast, Northern Ireland’s capital, for one last day of exploration and learn about the city’s deep maritime connection.

In recent years, we have seen a new era emerging in cruising.

There is a trend for everything to get bigger and busier, and for a cruise to be seen as an alternative to a large luxury resort, with a limitless flurry of activity. But this is not for us. Find out more 

1. WE ARE PROUD TO SAIL OUR OWN COURSE

We are free to do things a different way because we are family-run. Of course some people enjoy the bigger, busier cruises, but it is not for everyone, and it is not for us. We prefer to do things, 'The Olsen Way'.

2. SMALLER IS BETTER

We have fewer guests, so the atmosphere on board our ships is always warm and civilised. Our smaller ships allow us to visit the more interesting places that the world has to offer.

3. HAND-CRAFTED, NOT MASS PRODUCED

We pride ourselves on putting our all into the Fred. Olsen cruise experience. Our itineraries are created from scratch every year, our service is genuinely personal and each and every area of our ships is designed by hand.

Borealis, like her sister ship Bolette, has capacity for less than 1,400 guests but is larger in overall size than the other vessels in the Fred. Olsen fleet. This means when you come on board for a memorable cruise holiday, to relax and enjoy a premium level of comfort – as well as our renowned personal service – in the elegant public areas, lounges, bars and dining venues, you have even more space in which to do so.

With its warm, welcoming atmosphere and timeless style, and classic open deck spaces providing a place to fully immerse yourself in the magic of ocean cruising, Borealis is very much in keeping with what our guests have come to expect from a Fred. Olsen ship.
