Let Boudicca be your guide to exploring the remote, yet breathtaking regions of Greenland. Simply stunning fjords and waterways, astonishing natural wonders and fascinating settlements all await discovery in this elusive country; and there’s no better way to take in the best of them than on this unforgettable cruise.

Before discovering the delights of Greenland your incredible itinerary begins in Iceland. After spending three relaxing days at sea you’ll call into Reykjavik, the capital and your gateway to the world-famous wonders of the Golden Circle. See the Gullfoss Waterfall, Strokkur Geysir and more; or perhaps visit the glorious Blue Lagoon Spa before sailing on to Ísafjörður for tours to the unspoilt Hornstrandir Nature Reserve. A day of magical scenic cruising will then provide the perfect start to your time in Greenland, bringing some of the country’s greatest sights closer to you. Soaring mountains, glistening glaciers, imposing icebergs and tumbling waterfalls will come into view in Prins Christiansund; and within Torssukátak huge cliff formations will await your admiration. Traversing these simply awe-inspiring waterways will create memories which will last forever. [ReadMore]

Stopping at Qaqortoq will offer you your first chance to step foot on Greenlandic shores. You could take in some of Greenland’s most spectacular Arctic landscapes on an accompanied hike at the Great Lake; or experience Kaffe-Mik and enjoy traditional coffee, tea and cake with the town’s friendly locals. From Narsarsuaq you can join a boat tour to the Qooroq Ice Fjord and marvel at the beautiful blue icebergs, which break away from the magnificent Qooroq Glacier. Alternatively, venture up Signal Hill and enjoy stunning views of the Tunugdlliarfik Fjord. In Nanortalik – Greenland’s most southerly town – you’ll discover steep mountains, gorgeous fjords and pretty woodlands. A visit to the Open Air Museum, which showcases traditional clothing, kayaks and much more, is a must to learn about the local way of life. Finally, delight in the majestic scenery of the Tasermiut Fjord as you depart Greenland before sailing to Scotland to visit John O’Groats from Scrabster.

Real ships
We’re not interested in gimmicks like zip wires, climbing walls or celebrity chefs. We don’t have boastful megaships. We take immense pride in our fleet of smaller-scaled vessels that retain the style, ambience and understated quality of a country house hotel.  We ensure they remain contemporary too: from winter 2016 to spring 2018 the whole fleet underwent dry dock refits to further enhance the facilities for guests. With the fifth generation Fred. Olsen as Chairman and 170 years of seafaring heritage behind us, we believe we’ve found the perfect formula for you to get the best out of your holiday with us.

Smaller but spacious
A smaller ship doesn’t mean less space; far from it. Each room is comfortably sized, with all that you’ll need to enjoy your holiday. In fact, our rooms are comparable to those on some of the mammoth cruise ships. While our vessels are on a more accessible scale, you can have just as much private space.  With fewer people on board it’s easy to find a quiet spot to relax in peace with a drink or a good book. There’s room to stretch out by the pool and you can get ashore more quickly too. And when you’re ashore, you’re seeing the best of each port of call with hundreds – not thousands – of others, giving you a much more authentic experience.

Service with a smile
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 guest feedback our staff are always the most highly-rated aspect of the whole experience.
