Cruise & Walk holidays combine the freedom of a walking holiday with the pleasures of a Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines cruise. You'll discover some wonderful seascapes along the way and also enjoy the diverse sightseeing and walking available at all ports of call. Please click here to learn more about our walking grades. Conveniently, most cruises depart from regional ports around the UK, but we also offer fly-cruise holidays to the Caribbean, Far East, Canaries & West Africa.


Unless otherwise stated in the holiday description, your holiday price includes:

  • All accommodation and meals on board your Fred. Olsen ship
  • A full walking itinerary, planned by us and led by your experienced tour leader
  • Direct flights from London on our fly-cruise holidays
  • Tips to restaurant staff on the ship
  • An exclusive Welcome Party and a traditional afternoon tea for your group 


Your Cruise & Walk Holiday Leader can make the world of difference to your holiday, so we select each one carefully. They will ensure that you get the most out of all guided walks ashore and all our leaders are first-aid trained and hold relevant walking qualifications.

To enhance your experience we often employ local guides to give you a special insight into the area and add character and flavour to your holiday.


Our holidays offer friendly, fun experiences, and our small groups frequently include single travellers. We know that as a solo traveller you might enjoy a single room. All cruise lines do charge supplements for single cabins, however some twin cabins may be available for sole use at a reduced supplement.


We offer an early booking discount of £25pp when you book 6 months or more in advance. And, whenever you book, you do so safe in the knowledge that your Cruise & Walk holiday will not be advertised in the future at a lower price without any reduction to the advertised price being passed to you.

Our Cruise & Walk Holidays

Fjords of Norway
Odysseys through the land of Fjords.
The coast and fjords of Norway are made for cruising; there is no more beautiful scenery on earth.  ‘I never want this day to end’ is how one of our clients described a day in the fjords. We think that says it all.

Magic of the Canaries
Exploring mountains, volcanoes and gorges of the Canaries.
It is our cruises to the Canaries that really show best what Cruise & Walk is all about - a new island each day, real mountain walking, at a time of year when the weather in northern Europe makes a cruise to the warm south seem even more appealing.

Sailing towards the Tropics
Cruising the Europe and Africa's Atlantic coast and islands

On this cruise we don’t quite reach the Tropics, but the mild climate of the Azores, Madeira and the Canaries is a welcome contrast to a northern European winter. Add to that a dash of Iberia and a taste of Morocco and you have a very pleasant way to build up to Christmas.

Atlantic Contrasts
Northern waters have amazing scenery - glaciers falling into the sea, geysers, volcanoes and fjords
Iceland is not the just the land of ice and fire that many imagine - it is warmed by the gulf stream and has surprisingly mild weather in summer and early autumn. From Reykjavik we walk in the Thingvellir National Park, where the European and American continents meet, creating a landscape with the appearance of a crevassed glacier.

Western Mediterranean
Coastal walking and sightseeing in the spring sunshine.
In the spring the Iberian coastline is fresh and inviting; even around Almeria plants are in bloom after the sparse winter rains. Our cruise combines coastal walking with sightseeing, from the wild coast of the Algarve to the splendours of Gaudi’s Barcelona.

Mediterranean & the Adriatic
A real journey across the seas, one rich in history and beautiful scenery.
Amazingly the majority of the ports visited on this cruise were once part of the Venetian Doge’s domain. Venice itself will be for many the highlight of this cruise.
