The beauty of Norway’s fjordland changes throughout the year and on this cruise, specially planned to coincide with the changing of the seasons, you’re in for a very special discovery of the region’s early autumn delights.[ReadMoreMob] Borealis will take you on journeys into Sognefjord and Hardangerfjord – the two longest Norwegian fjords – to relax and marvel at the sight of their dramatic mountains and cliffs, quaint villages and natural wonders, as you feel the crisp, cooler air pass over you.

Within Hardangerfjord there’s also a visit to Ulvik, for chances to taste the autumn flavours of fruits and ciders grown and produced at local orchards, and simply marvel at the landscapes that shroud the village. Borealis also sails Aurlandsfjord to Flam, from where you can ride the famous Flamsbana Railway into the surrounding mountains and see peaks, valleys and waterfalls up-close. In Bergen, another railway ride is highly recommended; the funicular line is your route to the top of Mount Floyen, where unforgettable views await. Take in this historic city’s many other highlights, including the Bryggen Wharf, too.

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.
