An autumn fjordland adventure, this journey has been planned to show you Norway’s awe-inspiring natural surroundings at a time of year when the landscapes begin to lose their summertime hues and fruits are ready for harvest. You’re in for a wonderfully autumnal experience at Eidfjord; here you’ll be ideally placed to visit a local orchard and sample produce made from its fruit, from apple juice to cider and brandy. See the beauty of Hardangerfjord’s orchard-covered valleys and its mountain peaks from Borealis too.[ReadMore]

Experience scenic cruising into Lysefjord, to see its dramatic cliffs, mountains and intriguing rock formations, and along Sognefjord, Norway’s longest fjord, gazing up at the edges and peaks of surrounding forested hills and imposing cliff faces. Before your exploration of Sognefjord, there’s also a visit to Flåm – a chance to go ashore, step on board the famous Flambana Railway and ride into the surrounding mountains to see rock formations and waterfalls up-close. Concluding your time in Norway is a call at Bergen. Ride the Floyen Railway for great views of the city – a ramble with a local is the best way to discover the finest sights, or simply take time to discover highlights such as the Bryggen Wharf at your own pace.

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.
