With a captivating mix of diverse cityscapes, rich history and culture, and breahtaking scenery to discover, exploring Northern Europe with Fred. Olsen always makes for a unique and memorable experience.

Wonders such as the Northern Lights or the waterfalls, mountains and cliffs of Norway's fjords may await, while your Northern European cruise could also offer highlights such as the inspiring Oslo's National Gallery, the architectural splendours of Copenhagen, the museums of Helsinki and the delights of Stockholm, including its beautiful archipelago.[ReadMoreMob]

Alternatively, the remarkable history of these lands come alive in the intriguing Hanseatic port of Riga and the medieval alleyways of Tallinn. Northern Europe is a natural wonderland, and a cruise is uniquely-suited to the discovery of the region’s most powerful vistas: the picturesque islands of Northern Norway, Iceland's volcanos and waterfalls, the unspoilt lands of remote Greenland and the jaw-dropping fjordland are simply unmissable.[ReadMoreDesk]

The region is also one of the very best places to get into the Christmas spirit; cities such as Tallinn, Copenhagen and Hamburg are simply magical over the festive season, with their traditional markets and decorations. Just another reason why a Northern European Cruise is such a wonderful experience – all set within a backdrop of some of the world’s most beautiful scenery.
