Cruise into the land of the midnight sun
Ramblers Cruise & Walk – the experts in guided walking adventures combining land and sea - are offering a fabulous opportunity to experience one of the world’s great natural phenomenons – the land of the midnight sun – aboard Fred. Olsen’s ship, Braemar – 12 nights from 16 June 2015.
The Land of the Midnight Sun
What will I remember from the Land of the Midnight Sun? Walking across the Arctic Tundra on Magerøya, almost the furthest north of Norway, white reindeer skittering away from us, delicate flowers brightening the turf and later we saw North Cape itself towering above the ship’s deck.
Exploring Norway’s fjords on foot
Our Cruise & Walk holidays give you the best of both worlds – luxury accommodation as you float past magnificent scenery, and shore excursions that take you right into the heart of the landscape on foot. Hannah Parsons describes her walking excursions through the stunning fjords of Norway, based on the Fred.Olsen ship, the MS Boudicca.
We were starting day four of our seven night Cruise & Walk to Norway, navigating the fjord approaching Flam just before sunrise. I had been slow to catch on to the idea that it was possible for a five-star hotel to, literally, float hundreds of miles to the next destination while I slumbered, proving to be an incredible logistical advantage.
