Norway and Svalbard Cruises

Northern Lights

With extensive knowledge of this remarkable country, a rich Norwegian heritage that dates back generations and smaller ships that can sail to places out of reach to larger ships, Fred. Olsen can show you Norway like no-one else. [ReadMoreMob]

The spellbinding Norwegian Fjords are a natural wonderland of sheer cliffs, towering mountains, mighty waterfalls and rolling valleys, interspersed with charming, chocolate box towns and villages. Cruising with Fred. Olsen is the best way to experience this incredible region. We divert away from well-travelled sea routes and into glassy, near-silent waterways such as the astonishing, UNESCO-listed Nærøyfjord and Geirangerfjord to show you the more scenic paths, and bring you closer to jaw-dropping highlights including the Briksdal Glacier; the Seven Sisters and Fureberg waterfalls; Flam’s world-famous railway; and many more.[ReadMoreDesk]

Beyond the magical fjordland, a thousand years of history and culture is packed into enchanting cities: Hanseatic Bergen, famed for its Bryggen Wharf and Mount Fløyen; Oslo, the cosmopolitan capital; and stylish Stavanger are sure to delight. Venture even further to Norway’s Arctic north and your adventures may feature chances to visit remarkably remote islands and settlements in the Svalbard archipelago; uncover Alta’s fascinating Sami culture; explore unspoilt Arctic wilderness via a traditional husky-pulled sled; or even marvel at the awe-inspiring Northern Lights.

Whether you’re exploring the fjords for the first time, perhaps on a five-night escape departing from convenient northern UK ports, or are, like so many, returning on a longer voyage to this breathtaking part of the world, you’re in for the ultimate cruise experience in Fred. Olsen’s homeland.
