With hours of inspirational scenic cruising to experience, and time ashore to get even closer to spectacular fjords too, you’re in for a week of endless rewards on this springtime sailing. Mighty glaciers and breathtaking waterfalls, world-famous railways, spectacular viewpoints and much more – an abundance of Norway’s very best attractions await your discovery.

Unforgettable from start to finish, your foray into the fjords begins with a magical day of scenic cruising.[ReadMoreMob] A bridge at the entrance of Lysefjord restricts larger vessels, but thanks to your ship’s smaller size, you’ll revel in this spellbinding waterway’s uncanny peace and extraordinary landscapes. A journey along the size-restricted Naeroyfjord affords a chance to immerse yourself in the waterway’s unspoilt scenery and tranquillity too, before Bolette takes you to see Langfoss – one of the world’s most beautiful waterfalls – tumbling down the jagged cliffs of Akrafjord. Stopping at Flåm, on the tranquil banks of Aurlandsfjord, provides your first chance to go ashore in search of some of the fjordland’s greatest highlights. A ride on the Flåmsbana Railway, regarded as one of the best train journeys on earth, is highly recommended to see imposing mountains anfd crashing waterfalls up-close for unmissable photo opportunities. Alternatively, opt to the head to the 650-metre-high Stegastein Lookout, for views of Aurlandsfjord and Sognefjord to savour forever.[ReadMoreDesk]

Up next is Olden, tucked away at the very farthest reaches of Nordfjord. From this pretty village you could set-off on an incredible exploration of the Briksdalen Valley to seek-out the awe-inspiring Briksdal Glacier and see it glistening in the spring light; or perhaps head for Lovatnet Lake, an unspoilt haven and natural habitat for various bird species. Finally, after relaxing scenic cruising back along Nordfjord, it’s on to Stavanger for a culture-rich end to your cruise. Home to an array of diverse attractions, including the historic Gamla Stavanger district, the interesting Canning Museum and even Norway’s fourth largest shopping mall, you’ll find there’s plenty to uncover in the former ‘European Capital of Culture’.

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.
Bringing the world closer

Our size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the larger cruise vessels simply can’t. We dock close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and can take you on scenic cruising adventures showcasing inspirational landscapes. Our itineraries are expertly crafted to make the most of this advantage.

Smaller but spacious

Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.

Service with a smile
