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 & Cape Verde.


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.

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.

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.

VENICE & THE ADRIATIC A real journey across the seas, one rich in history and beautiful scenery.
NEW Venice’s myriad palaces, churches, islands and canals were in the fourteenth century at the heart of a vast maritime empire. Amazingly all but two of the ports visited on this cruise (Gibraltar and Cádiz) were once part of the Venetian Doge’s domain. Venice itself will be for many the highlight of this cruise.
