Amongst the rugged, remote lands of the Faroe Islands, you’ll witness the natural, unspoilt beauty of their wonders in all their glory as smaller ship Borealis takes you off the beaten track.[ReadMoreMob] Hours of scenic cruising along Faroese waters will provide an abundance of unforgettable sights and experiences; the views of seabird havens such as the Vestmanna Cliffs and Hestur and Mykines islands, and of Cape Enniberg, North Europe’s second highest sea cliff, will be something to behold. Sailing by the mountains and waterfall of Gásadalur is a chance to see the archipelago’s most photographed place for yourself too.

What’s more, you’re afforded time ashore to get a feel for life in the Faroes too, in two of the country’s largest settlements. Explore Klaksvik, set to the backdrop of Borðoy Island’s rolling hills and rocky cliffs, to learn of its important commercial and fishing heritage, enjoy the peacefulness of the little streets and discover the Viking remains and pretty flora of Úti í Grøv. In Tórshavn, the capital, you can learn of further links to the Vikings, see the city’s mix of diverse old and new architecture, or simply stroll the flagstone streets and parks, to taste life as a local here.

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.

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.
