Exploring Iceland at a time of year with fewer tourists around is a unique and unmissable opportunity to experience one of the world’s most spectacular countries. You’ll find early spring is the perfect time to visit; smaller crowds make it easier to seek-out and marvel at wonders such as those within reach of Reykjavik. You could witness the power of the Gullfoss Waterfall and gushing Geysir hot springs, and see the Godadoss ‘Waterfall of the Gods’, while you’ll find a dip in the geothermal baths of the Blue Lagoon even more relaxing too.

A visit to Akureyri provides a chance to experience a once-in-a-lifetime adventure; join a whale watching tour to look-out for Humpback and Minke whales as they return to their breeding grounds, as well as dolphins and porpoises in natural habitat. Alternatively tour to witness another mighty waterfall, the Dettifoss, or perhaps see beautiful Myvatn Lake. There’s also a visit to Ísafjörður to revel in the scenery of the Westfjords – best seen from a kayak. And, as if all that wasn’t enough, with luck on your side you might even get to see the awe-inspiring Northern Lights when darkness descends during your time in Iceland.

Bringing the world closer

Our size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the larger cruise vessels simply can’t. We dock close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and can take you on scenic cruising adventures showcasing inspirational landscapes. Our itineraries are expertly crafted to make the most of this advantage.

Smaller but spacious

Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.

Each member of the Fred. Olsen team has been carefully selected for their warm and welcoming personalities. The quality of our people, supported by training and development, ensures they will give you a great holiday. In fact, 97% of guests rated Fred. Olsen’s friendly, attentive staff ‘Excellent’ or ‘Good’.

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.
