Discover the majestic scenery of Norway on a winter sailing with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines

Press release   •   Sep 26, 2016 16:03 BST

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is offering guests the choice of two ‘Norway Winter’ cruises, on either Balmoral, departing on 20th January 2017 from Southampton, or Braemar, sailing from Dover on 18th March 2017. At this time of year, guests will be able to experience and admire Norway’s breathtaking scenery at its very best – with the clean air at its most crisp and the mountains coated in blankets of white.

Taking a cruise to Norway during the winter months also offers a variety of shore tour experiences that are not available during the summer. Cruise guests will have the chance to visit an ice hotel, go in search of the elusive Aurora Borealis – often known as the ‘Northern Lights’ – visit the impressive Tromsø Arctic Cathedral and have a go at some winter activities, including snow-shoe trekking, tobogganing, husky sledding and snowmobiling!

In addition, guests that book one of these ‘Norway Winter’ sailings by 12th October 2016 can benefit from up to 20% off their cruise fare.
