Journey off the well-beaten tourist track to unearth the fascinating culture and inspirational scenery of Greenland’s most remote regions on this memorable cruise adventure. Astonishing waterways, remarkable natural wonders and enchanting settlements await amongst these isolated lands, and smaller-sized Boudicca is your guide to uncovering the very best of them.

The four days of Greenlandic exploration featured on this incredible 16-night itinerary are packed with unforgettable experiences. After visiting Iceland for an overnight stay in Reykjavik, gateway to the wonders of the Golden Circle and the Blue Lagoon, scenic cruising of the immaculate Prins Christiansund and Torssukátak Fjord provides the perfect introduction to the scenic splendour of Greenland. Views of soaring mountains, glorious glaciers, imposing icebergs and cascading waterfalls will whet your appetite for what’s to come. Your first chance to step foot on Greenland’s shores comes in Qaqortoq, where you could visit the interesting museum and intriguing Stone & Man sculptures, or perhaps experience the Greenlandic tradition of Kaffe-Mik in the company of the town’s friendly locals. Qaqortoq is also ideally located for tours to the Great Lake, which boasts some of the country’s most breathtaking Arctic landscapes. [ReadMore]

Then there’s Narsarsuaq, starting point for boat tours to the awe-inspiring Qooroq Ice Fjord. Take the exhilarating ride into Qooroq and you’ll see beautiful blue icebergs, which break away from the magnificent Qooroq Glacier, up-close in all their frozen glory. Alternatively, you might choose to venture up Signal Hill in Narsarsuaq to marvel at the unspoilt scenery of Tunugdlliarfik Fjord, before embarking Boudicca once again to sail Tunugdlliarfik in the evening en route to Nanortalik. Your final call in Greenland offers a fascinating insight into life in region; the Open Air Museum showcases traditional clothing, kayaks and much more, while a live performance of song and dance from the locals is sure to delight. For one last memorable Greenlandic experience, you’ll also enjoy scenic cruising of the majestic Tasermuit Fjord before Boudicca heads back to Dover via Scotland’s rugged Orkney Islands.

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’re not interested in gimmicks like zip wires, climbing walls or celebrity chefs. 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.
