Sails from Liverpool

Amongst the rugged, remote lands of the Faroe Islands, you’ll witness the natural, unspoilt beauty of their wonders in all their glory as smaller ship Borealis takes you off the beaten track. Hours of scenic cruising along Faroese waters will provide an abundance of unforgettable sights and experiences; the views of seabird havens such as the Vestmanna Cliffs and Hestur and Mykines islands, and of Cape Enniberg, North Europe’s second highest sea cliff, will be something to behold. Sailing by the mountains and waterfall of Gásadalur is a chance to see the archipelago’s most photographed place for yourself too.

What’s more, you’re afforded time ashore to get a feel for life in the Faroes too, in two of the country’s largest settlements. Explore Klaksvik, set to the backdrop of Borðoy Island’s rolling hills and rocky cliffs, to learn of its important commercial and fishing heritage, enjoy the peacefulness of the little streets and discover the Viking remains and pretty flora of Úti í Grøv. In Tórshavn, the capital, you can learn of further links to the Vikings, see the city’s mix of diverse old and new architecture, or simply stroll the flagstone streets and parks, to taste life as a local here.

Belfast, Northern Ireland

From beautiful coastlines to a fascinating industrial heritage, Belfast is a modern, vibrant and stylish city. Famous for being the birthplace of the RMS Titanic, Northern Ireland’s capital offers visitors the chance to visit the Harland and Wolff shipyard and the fascinating Titanic Experience. Only in Belfast can the Titanic story be traced to its source, and the excitement of an era when the city was at the height of its powers relived.

Klaksvik, Faroe Island

Located on the island of Borðoy, Klaksvik is the Faroe Island’s second largest town and, thanks to the backdrop of rolling hills, craggy cliffs and a gorgeous bay, one of its most beautiful. This unique town of pretty buildings – including the charming Christianskirkjan Church, traditional farms and busy port – is considered the cultural and commercial hub of the Faroes. The town’s roundabout with a sculpture of a fish hook several meters high emphasises Klaksvik’s importance as a fishing port.

Tuesday 07 June 2022

Tórshavn, Faroe Islands

Tórshavn, on Streymoy Island, is the capital city of the Faroe Islands. It’s known for its Old Town, Tinganes, and its curious wooden turf-roofed houses dotted across the small, rocky peninsula. Vikings discovered the islands over a thousand years ago, and established the main harbour at Tórshavn. With forts in place to protect it from pirates, it soon became a major trading centre. Many of the city’s ancient buildings are still standing and open to the public.

The Reynagarður Vicarage, built in the mid-1600s and Munkastovan, part of the medieval fort that was built to protect Tórshavn from pirate invasion, await discovery. The striking Tórshavn Cathedral, rebuilt in the 19th century, is another of the city’s must-visit attractions.

Important Ship Information Borealis

Borealis, like her sister ship Bolette, has capacity for less than 1,400 guests but is larger in overall size than the other vessels in the Fred. Olsen fleet. This means when you come on board for a memorable cruise holiday, to relax and enjoy a premium level of comfort – as well as our renowned personal service – in the elegant public areas, lounges, bars and dining venues, you have even more space in which to do so.

With its warm, welcoming atmosphere and timeless style, and classic open deck spaces providing a place to fully immerse yourself in the magic of ocean cruising, Borealis is very much in keeping with what our guests have come to expect from a Fred. Olsen ship.
