The cruise at a glance

The Olsen Way Highlights

Thanks to Bolette’s higher cruising speeds, our expert knowledge of the Olsen family’s homeland, and departing from Newcastle, this short escape packs in plenty of fjordland experiences. Bolette will make scenic diversions along the Nærøyfjord and Lysefjord, while ashore there are chances to capture views of Bergen from Mount Fløyen, and journey up into the mountains aboard the Flåm Railway.

Lysefjord, Norway

Lysefjord - Scenic Discovery


Carved into the landscape by glacier movement in the Ice Age, Lysefjord is lined by tall mountains and dramatic cliff faces – some soaring over 1,000 metres high. As we sail into Lysefjord, we will pass under Lysefjordbrua suspension bridge which stands at the entrance to the fjord. Its low clearance means only smaller ships are able to pass under it. Gliding along the glassy waters of the fjord, you can take in scenes of tumbling waterfalls, native wildlife and local settlements dotted along the shores. On a clear day it is possible to see the famous Preikestolen – a 604 metre-high flat mountain plateau – and Kjeragbolten, a large rock wedged in one of Mount Kjerag’s crevices.

Ride the scenic Flåm Railway


Enjoy a ride on Flåmsbana, considered one of the world's most beautiful train journeys, taking you from the crystalline fjord, past sparkling blue rivers and up to the mountain peaks. The world-famous railway is an engineering wonder and one of the world's steepest railway lines, ascending to 867 metres in just 50 minutes. As the train clatters through several tunnels and over bridges, witness the magnificent vistas of the valley unfold below.
