The wonders and wildlife of a land bursting with natural treasures awaits on this Icelandic adventure. A visit to Reykjavik provides a chance to discover the fabled Golden Circle and witness the beauty of the Gullfoss ‘Golden Waterfall’ and the sheer natural power of gushing Geyser hot springs. Enjoy time ashore amongst the volcanic landscapes of the remote Heimaey Islands too; and revel in the scenery of the Westfjords, best experienced on a kayaking tour from Ísafjörður.[ReadMore]

Exploration of the rugged north coast is for encounters with native fauna; look out for sea birds nesting on the cliffs and peaks of Eyjafjörður’s mountainous islands and, from Akureyri, go in search of humpback and minke whales, dolphins and porpoises by boat – an unforgettable experience. You could also head to the dramatic Godafoss, to see and hear the crashing white waters of the ‘Waterfall of the Gods’, or perhaps Lake Mývatn, where large colonies of birds live and thrive in a haven of tranquillity.

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.
