FJORDS OF NORWAY

Odysseys through the land of Fjords...

Norway’s coast and fjords are a delight from spring to autumn. Receding snows are replaced by apple blossom, giving way to lush green hills and deep blue waters beneath the towering peaks. Since our Cruise & Walk programme was launched, Norway has consistently proven our most popular destination. There is no more beautiful scenery on Earth.

Our unique shore walks and excursions include:

Bergen: We walk past the old merchants’ houses and ascend Mount Fløyen by cable car. Here paths stretch into a world of woods, lakes and mountains.

Flåm: We take the iconic Flåm railway to the mountainous settlement of Myrdal, and then walk down to Berekvam past countless waterfalls with rugged peaks all around.

Olden: Our walk takes us towards either the Brennsdal or Briksdal Glaciers, tongues of Europe’s largest glacier, the Jostedal Glacier.

Eidfjord: From this tiny village at the end of the world-famous Hardangerfjord we walk past a Viking cemetery to the local lake and take in the sights of this charming location.

Stavenger: On the coast in southern Norway, we walk amidst low-lying hills, exploring the small hamlet of Eiganes and lakes Stockavatnet and Mosvatnet.

Skjolden: Here we are about as far east as you can sail in the fjords... our walk passes through woods and farmland high above Lustrafjord with breathtaking views.

Ålesund: We take an easy, gentle walk on well maintained paths around and along the top of the Nøvoya Peninsula to a high café and viewpoint looking out over the town.

Please note that ports may differ between individual departures, please check the itinerary link against your chosen departure in the Dates, Prices & Holiday Information Sheet tab.

  • Accommodation

    Fred. Olsen cruise ships provide our floating hotels, just come on board and take it easy. On board facilities include two swimming pools, a fitness centre, a sauna, a beauty salon, a sun deck, Jacuzzis, several lounges and bars, a card room, library, internet room and restaurants. The ship has a medical centre, and a shop where you can buy essentials such as sun cream or toiletries. There is also a laundrette and ironing room on board.

    All meals are included and you start the day with breakfast, a buffet arrangement where you can choose from fresh fruits, cereals, yoghurts, a full English breakfast, cheeses, cold cuts, breads, pastries, fresh juices and unlimited tea or coffee.

    We’ll take our lunches onboard on cruising days and when we’re out for the day we’ll be provided with a packed lunch.

    Dinner is taken in a stylish restaurant with smiling courteous waiting staff creating a wonderful atmosphere for your evening meal. We are booked for dinner at 18.15hrs to allow you plenty of time to also enjoy the evening entertainment if you wish. Don’t forget your formal wear, as you will be encouraged to ’dress for dinner’ on one or two occasions.

    And if this is not enough, there is also morning coffee, afternoon tea and extensive late night suppers to indulge in!  We’ll also have an exclusive drinks party for our group one evening in addition to the Captain’s welcome and farewell parties and a traditional afternoon tea with waiter service on one of our sea days.

    All Four Cruise Ships

    Braemar
    Stylish, contemporary and with a five deck high atrium and large windows, Braemar has a light and open feel. There are two swimming pools on the Marquee Deck and cascading decks at the stern to give a mix of both open and more intimate outside space. Inside there’s no shortage of public space either, with cafés, bars, lounges.
     
    Boudicca
    Sister ship to Black Watch, Boudicca was named after the warrior queen of the ancient Britons. This classically styled liner lives up to its impressive name providing good accommodation, excellent catering, and the attentive service that’s only really possible on a smaller ship.
     
    Black Watch
    Before the jet set arrived, cruise ships were once the height of style, charm and sophistication. Black Watch with its sleek styling, traditional atmosphere and comfortable cabins harks back to the heyday of the cruise liner. Still sailing on world cruises, Black Watch continues to provide a world–class cruising experience to travellers today.
     
    Balmoral
    Carrying around 1350 passengers, Balmoral is the largest ship in Fred. Olsen’s fleet. Although considerably smaller and more intimate than most cruise ships launched in recent years, the cabins are comfortable and well appointed. There’s plenty of public space both inside and outside, where everyone can relax, and swimming pools on decks 7 and 11.
