Overview

This visit to Norway’s fjordland in the spring, aboard the Bolette, is a chance to experience the unique seasonal wonder of some of the region’s most scenic waterways and landscapes.

You’ll be taken on special diversions into Maurangerfjord, to witness Fureberg Waterfall when it is at its most powerful; Nordfjord to see North Europe’s tallest sea cliff; and between the imposing cliffs and mountains of UNESCO-listed Naeroyfjord. Journeys along Hardangerfjord and Sognefjord will bring scenes of rugged, verdant valleys into view.

There are opportunities for memorable experiences ashore too. From Olden, see the glistening ice of Briksdal Glacier on tour, or perhaps ride the Loen Skylift for panoramic views of Nordfjord. Eidfjord is the starting point for discovering sights such as Vøringsfossen, one of Norway’s most famous waterfalls, and for fjord kayaking experiences on the glassy waters of Hardangerfjord.

At Flam, you could ride the famous Flambana Railway into the surrounding mountains to see rock formations and waterfalls up-close.

Ride the Floyen Railway in Bergen too, and enjoy a hike with a local to see the city ‘through their eyes’, or simply take time to discover highlights such as the Bryggen Wharf.

Fred Olsen Guarantee:

”Our Plain Sailing Guarantee is designed to give you every reassurance about your booking with us during these unusual times. And it comes completely without clauses or caveats. This will cover guests sailing with us in 2022. That’s why if you make a new booking now for a 2021 cruise and change your mind about travelling nearer the time, we will either move the deposit you have paid to an alternative cruise with no admin fees or refund it to you in full.

Just let us know no later than when your final payment is due (or your interim payment for a longer cruise) and our team will take care of the rest.

We will also transfer your cruise or give you a sailing credit if you cannot travel due to testing positive for Coronavirus. There will be no administration fees and you can choose any cruise within 12 months of your original sailing date. No quibble refunds If we have to cancel your cruise for any reason, whilst we would love it if you transferred to another, you can of course have a full refund with no quibbles, at any time.

We want you to book your cruise with us with complete confidence. That’s why Fred. Olsen Jnr himself insists each and every booking is covered with his Enjoyment Promise. It means that if within 48 hours of sailing, you are not enjoying your ocean cruise, we will arrange to take you home at our expense and give you a full refund.

As the world is changing constantly, it may also be necessary for our Plain Sailing Guarantee to change without notice. You will always be able to see our latest version on our website (fredolsencruises.com/travel-confidence). The benefits above replace our standard transfer policy detailed in our Booking Conditions. We’ve kept things beautifully simple and straightforward, just like the family-run business we are. We look forward to welcoming you on board when the time is right for us all.”
