Take an ‘Arctic Adventure & Exploration’ on Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines


The Arctic is one of the most magnificent and hard-to-reach regions in the world. In fact the latest edition of World of Cruising has a feature on it.  In 2015, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is offering guests the chance to experience this unspoiled destination on a 27-night ‘Arctic Adventure & Exploration’ voyage. Departing from Newcastle on 2nd August 2015, this cruise, on smaller, more intimate Boudicca, will allow guests to cross the Arctic Circle, witness the majestic fjords of Norway, take in the peaks and pinnacles of Iceland and Greenland, and maybe spot some of the world’s most elusive wildlife – Whales, Dolphins, Sea Eagles, Huskies and possibly even a  Polar Bear.

This intrepid ‘Arctic Adventure & Exploration’ cruise will call first at the bustling city of Ålesund, which is shaped like a fish hook and home to the largest and most beautiful cod fishing fleet in Norway.

Boudicca will then glide onwards to Trondheim, a unique city in Norway, offering modern amenities, with the cosy appeal of small-town friendliness.

Next, guests will need to find themselves a great position out on deck ready for some fantastic scenic cruising. Passing Rørvik, Torghatten, Seven Sisters Mountain Range – where Boudicca will ‘Cross the Arctic Circle’ – The Black Glacier and Lødingen, there will be ample opportunity to take some stunning photographs.  

Prices for this amazing ‘Arctic Adventure & Exploration’ cruise start from just £2,699 per person, based on two adults sharing a twin, ‘Inside’ cabin, and include accommodation, all meals and entertainment on board, and port dues.
