Atlantic Contrasts

Northern waters have amazing scenery - glaciers falling into the sea, geysers, volcanoes and fjords

Northern waters contain some of the world’s most amazing scenery – glaciers falling into the sea, geysers, volcanoes and fjords. Our August cruise from Newcastle takes it all in, from Greenland to Norway's Western Fjords, from Ny Aalesund on Svalbard 600 miles from the North Pole to the Faroe Islands. Fred. Olsen say this will be the last time they visit Greenland or Svalbard, so visit these distant and spectacular places now before it is too late. 

Greenland’s south eastern coast is in places even more spectacular than the Alps, with mountains like the Dolomites and the vast expanse of the Greenland Ice Cap. Our three ports of call give us a taste of this great sparsely populated land.

Our other cruises mix and match destinations in Norway, Iceland and the Faroe Islands.

Iceland is not 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. We walk where the European and American continents meet, creating a landscape with the appearance of a crevassed glacier. There are lakes, waterfalls and hot springs, as well as birdwatching opportunities. Elsewhere our walks take us to more remote areas unique to this country such as Akureyri, Isafjordur, Seydisfjordur and Eskifjordur on the east coast.

Different cruises call into Runavik and Torshavn in the Faroe Islands from where we include  fine walks between remote villages with views across the sea to neighbouring islands. We also sample Norway’s beautiful coast, fjords and mountains, as well as the lovely city of Bergen.

Please do check the individual itineraries for your chosen date as the UK departure ports and individual ports of call on each cruise vary!
