This visit to Norway’s fjordland in the spring is a chance to experience the unique seasonal wonder of some of the region’s most scenic waterways and landscapes. You’ll be taken on special diversions into Maurangerfjord, to witness Fureberg Waterfall when it is at its most powerful; Nordfjord to see North Europe’s tallest sea cliff; and between the imposing cliffs and mountains of UNESCO-listed Naeroyfjord. Journeys along Hardangerfjord and Sognefjord will bring scenes of rugged, verdant valleys into view.[ReadMore]

There are opportunities for memorable experiences ashore too. From Olden, see the glistening ice of Briksdal Glacier on tour, or perhaps ride the Loen Skylift for panoramic views of Nordfjord. Eidfjord is the starting point for discovering sights such as Vøringsfossen, one of Norway’s most famous waterfalls, and for fjord kayaking experiences on the glassy waters of Hardangerfjord. At Flam, you could ride the famous Flambana Railway into the surrounding mountains to see rock formations and waterfalls up-close. Ride the Floyen Railway in Bergen too, and enjoy a hike with a local to see the city ‘through their eyes’, or simply take time to discover highlights such as the Bryggen Wharf.

Your Itinerary

  • Witness the powerful Fureberg Waterfall from Bolette
  • Take a ride on the Loen Skylift in Olden for stunning views of Nordfjord
  • At Flam, you could ride the famous Flambana Railway

While Bolette is one of the largest ships, by overall size, in our fleet, she still has capacity for less than 1,400 guests. So on board you’ll find you have more space in which to relax, in public areas such as the all-season pool and the beautiful two-tiered entertainment theatre, and enjoy a premium level of comfort – as well as our renowned personal service – in the elegant lounges, bars and dining venues.
 
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, Bolette is very much in keeping with what our guests have come to expect from a Fred. Olsen ship.

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.
