Cruise Description

7 Night Cruise sailing from Dover return onboard Boudicca.

With hours of inspirational scenic cruising to experience, and time ashore to get even closer to spectacular fjords too, you’re in for a week of endless rewards on this springtime sailing. Mighty glaciers and breathtaking waterfalls, world-famous railways, spectacular viewpoints and much more – an abundance of Norway’s very best attractions await your discovery.

Unforgettable from start to finish, your foray into the fjords begins with a magical day of scenic cruising. A bridge at the entrance of Lysefjord restricts larger vessels, but thanks to your ship’s smaller size, you’ll revel in this spellbinding waterway’s uncanny peace and extraordinary landscapes. A journey along the size-restricted Karmsund Strait affords a rare opportunity to admire its countryside scenes and impressive bridges too, before Boudicca takes you to see Langfoss – one of the world’s most beautiful waterfalls – tumbling down the jagged cliffs of Akrafjord. Stopping at Flåm, on the tranquil banks of Aurlandsfjord, provides your first chance to go ashore in search of some of the fjordland’s greatest highlights. A ride on the Flåmsbana Railway, regarded as one of the best train journeys on earth, is highly recommended to see imposing mountains and crashing waterfalls up-close for unmissable photo opportunities. Alternatively, opt to the head to the 650-metre-high Stegastein Lookout, for views of Aurlandsfjord and Sognefjord to savour forever.

Highlights of this cruise:

Dover, United Kingdom
Home of the famous White Cliffs, Dover is one of England's most iconic towns. Located on the south-east coast of England just 21 miles across the English Channel from France, Dover – home of the world's busiest passenger port – is the first sight for many visitors arriving from around the world.

This historic town is much more than a gateway to Britain, and offers much to discover, including the 12th century Dover Castle – which overlooks the pretty harbour and houses the extensive Secret Wartime Tunnels – Archcliffe Fort, and the Western Heights, where a series of coastal defences and unspoilt nature reserves await exploration.

Cruising Karmsund, Norway
Karmsund, a narrow waterway separating Karmoey Island from Haugesund, is only navigable by smaller ships such as those in the Fred. Olsen fleet.

So, while guests on board larger cruise ships have to spend more time out in the open sea to pass by Karmoey, on a Fred. Olsen cruise to this beautiful region you can enjoy memorable scenic cruising through Karmsund.

Flåm, Norway
Flåm is a tiny village on the banks of the Aurlandsfjord, a branch of the spectacular Sognefjord – the longest and deepest fjord in Europe. Situated amongst scenes of picturesque orchards, hamlets, cottages and farmland, this is one of Norway's most breathtaking locations.

Visitors to Flåm are often drawn to the charming village church, with its traditionally decorated walls, while the Flåmsbana Railway is ranked highly on the fjordland's must-do list. Climbing over 20km as it passes through the magnificent mountain scenery, the Flåmsbana takes in incredible sights such as the striking Kjosfossen Waterfall, crashing 225 metres down rugged cliffs. The Flåmsbana Museum, exploring the railway’s design and construction, is worth visiting too.


Cruising Nordfjord, Norway
The sixth longest Norwegian fjord, and one of the most picturesque, beautiful Nordfjord stretches from mainland Norway's western-most point – overlooking Stadhavet, Sunnmørsalpene and Ålfotbreen – to the magnificent Jostedalsbreen, Europe's largest inland glacier.

A journey along this spectacular waterway aboard one of Fred. Olsen's smaller-sized cruise ships brings ever-changing, breathtaking scenes into your viewfinder. The ocean entrance to the fjord is relatively flat, with low-lying lands and smooth beaches. As you venture deeper, the landscapes become taller and untamed, where isolated villages appear amongst a panorama of lush valleys, mighty cliffs and soaring alpine mountains.

Olden, Norway
At its eastern end, the magnificent Nordfjord divides into three arms beneath the glaciers of the Jostedalsbreen, and Olden sits at the beginning of the southernmost of these arms. A charming village, Olden is among green meadows which are ablaze with colourful flowers throughout the summer, and through which babbling brooks meander between pretty houses.

In the centre of the village is the Old Church, built in 1759 on the site of a 14th century stave church: the timber was used for the pew doors and doorposts. Near the church is the Singerheimen, the former home of William Singer the millionaire founder of the sewing-machine company. He was a gifted amateur artist, and some of his paintings of the Olden area can be seen in his workshop.

Stavanger, Norway
Behind the bustle of the prosperous and cosmopolitan Stavanger of today lie 1,000 years of ancient seafaring tradition and history. This vibrant, exciting Norwegian city oozes charm and was awarded the prestigious title of ‘European Capital of Culture’ in 2008.

The city’s wealth has prompted its tag as Norway’s ‘Oil Capital’, but Stavanger has remained as charming as ever. The old town, Gamle Stavanger, has narrow winding streets and ancient wooden houses gathered round an historic fresh fish and vegetable market. Stavanger is also a university city, which is reflected in the city’s lively, urban atmosphere, and in the varied assortment of shopping and dining experiences.

The Norwegian Petroleum Museum exhibits drilling equipment, a model oil platform, submersibles and audio-visual shows, while the city’s Herring Canning Museum celebrates one of Stavanger’s earlier sources of wealth. Beyond the town, the Three Swords monument commemorates the 9th century battle of Hafrsfjord – the moment Harald Hårfagre became the first King of Norway.

Stavanger is also perfectly placed for the breath-taking Lysefjord, one of the most famous Norwegian Fjords. This stunning waterway is home to the Kjerag Mountain and Preikestolen (The Pulpit Rock) – two of the country's most popular attractions.
