Journey to the Top of the World

A 28-night arctic exploration specially timed to capture the seasonal highlights

We are very excited to unveil this brand new sailing from the yet-to-be-launched 2021 programme. In one sailing, you'll be able to visit remote destinations in Norway, Svalbard, Iceland and Greenland. Along the way, you'll benefit from Boudicca's size advantage by sailing waterways out of reach to the larger vessels.

Dramatic landscapes that have beckoned visitors from around the world await you on this fantastic expedition. Vistas of unparalleled beauty are set amidst waters bursting with marine and birdlife. From Norway's wonderland of mighty waterfalls, rolling valleys and chocolate box towns to Iceland's fascinating Viking history and remarkable wildlife. From Svalbard's peaks, glaciers, and vast ice fields to Greenland's dramatic fjords, imposing mountains and majestic icebergs – you'll discover a whole other world in each port you visit… This memorable cruise adventure is specially created to show you all the wild and wonderful highlights of these distinct nations but in the renowned comfort of a Fred. Olsen ship.

Every step of the way your ship will take the most scenic routes, such as passing the pointed peaks of the impressive Seven Sisters mountain range; by the North Cape plateau, with its steep cliff face jutting out into the sea; through Prins Christiansund, which has been ranked by Fred. Olsen guests as our best scenic cruising experience; and along the Tasermiut Fjord, considered one of the ten wonders of the Arctic. This 28-night voyage is several wish-list holidays all rolled into one, unforgettable Fred. Olsen cruise.

A CHANCE TO SEEK OUT REMARKABLE NATURAL PHENOMENA.

At Fred. Olsen, we share your desire for exploring the world – a passion that has inspired many rare sailing achievements over the years. This unique cruise on board Boudicca for August 2021 is intended to be among them. Heading off the beaten track, we’ll aim to combine the last glimpse of the Midnight Sun – where the sun stays above the horizon for an astonishing 24-hours – with early glimmers of the Northern Lights, afforded by an overnight stay in Akureyri and a stop in Ísafjörður. As with all ventures of this kind, we’ll need nature to be on our side – but that’s exactly what makes it so exciting. We hope you’ll join us.
