The cruise at a glance

The Olsen Way Highlights

This extended voyage into the Arctic takes you off the beaten track to remote destinations, where you can gain an insight into the local way of life while capturing unspoilt scenery and the phenomenon of the Midnight Sun. You will visit the community of Longyearbyen and the abandoned mining town of Pyramiden in Spitsbergen, before the natural wonders of Iceland await. The wild and rugged environment of Greenland makes for rewarding exploration. Narsarsuaq is your gateway to the Qooroq Ice Fjord, where you can weave among white and glassy blue icebergs on a boat tour. Throughout your voyage, Bolette will sail scenic fjords, passing glaciers and mountainous landscapes.

Wildlife spotting on board with ORCA

 

As we explore the Arctic together, Ocean Conservationists ORCA will be on hand delivering talks on the marine life who call this region home, as well as leading wildlife spotting sessions out on deck. Be sure to bring your binoculars with you - these nutrient-rich waters are home to species such as Blue, Humpback, Fin, Beluga and Minke whales.

Discover the remote volcanic island of Jan Mayen

 

As we leave Northern Norway and head towards Iceland, we’ve planned a special diversion to sail past the remote volcanic island of Jan Mayen. Located on the southern edge of the Arctic Ocean between Iceland and Spitsbergen, this inhospitable island is home to dramatic cliff faces, pebble-covered beaches and the world’s most northernmost active volcano – Beerenberg. 

Midnight sun see from on board

Experience the Midnight Sun

 

We’ve planned this Arctic voyage so you can experience the natural phenomenon of the Midnight Sun on board as we explore Norway, Iceland and Greenland together. During our call into Honningsvåg, you will also have the opportunity to visit North Cape, the northernmost point of Europe, which is often described as “the land of the Midnight Sun”, on a tour.
