Awe-inspiring landscapes and several of Norway’s most beautiful ports await you on this nine-night springtime exploration of the fjordland. There are chances to see gorgeous countryside in seasonal bloom and spectacular natural wonders from the comfort of your ship, while during time ashore you can uncover a wealth of highlights too.

As you head for Norway from Dover you’ll have time to settle in and relax on board Boudicca, anticipating the scenic and cultural delights to come in Bergen – your first port of call – and beyond. In Bergen you could sample Klippfisk at the famous fish market; explore the iconic UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf; and visit museums such as the Troldhaugen, celebrating the life and works of Edvard Grieg. The views from atop Mount Fløyen, reached via the funicular railway, are not-to-be-missed. From Flåm you have an opportunity to embark on another magical railway journey too. Take a ride on the Flåmsbana line and you’ll be presented with unspoilt scenery dominated by magnificent mountains and cascading waterfalls. Alternatively, there are breathtaking views of Sognefjord on offer from the Stegastein Lookout, situated over 2000 feet above the fjord’s glassy waters. Following your stop at Flåm is unforgettable scenic cruising of the incredible Nærøyfjord, one of National Geographic’s top two Natural World Heritage Sites. Be sure to experience the natural beauty of this twisting, narrow waterway from your ship’s open decks. [ReadMore]

At Ålesund an appealing collection of art-nouveau architecture is yours to discover if you choose to stroll the pretty pedestrianised streets; although the city views of offer from Mount Aksla may tempt you into taking the 418-step hike to the mountain’s peak. Highly recommended here is a ride on the Rauma Railway, which takes in the Romsdalen Valley and fabled Troll Mountains. Olden is your gateway to a collection of the fjordland’s most spellbinding natural treasures. Perhaps you’ll choose to see the Briksdal Glacier in all its glory on a trek into the Briksdalen Valley; or take a boat tour of the Lovatnet Lake, surrounded by soaring mountains and glistening glacier tongues. Scenic cruising of Nordfjord, Maurangerfjord and Hardangerfjord will captivate and inspire as you sail to Eidfjord; have your camera to hand to capture impressive sights such as the Fureberg Waterfall. From Eidfjord, the Vøringsfossen – one of Norway’s most famous waterfalls – and the Hardangervidda Nature Centre are within reach on tours. Concluding your trip is a stop at Stavanger, a former European Capital of Culture, ensuring a rewarding end to your time in Norway.

Named after the British warrior Queen, Boudicca has built up a loyal following, combining style and space with the renowned personal Fred. Olsen service. Up to 880 guests can sail in comfort on board Boudicca, enjoying the welcoming, home-from-home ambience, ample space and fantastic restaurants, lounges, bars and facilities of a smaller, friendly ocean-going cruise ship.

Real ships
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.
