Throughout this world cruise, culture Enthusiasts can gain insight into the history of the products traded at various destinations and nature Enthusiasts can encounter a variety of different remarkable geological wonders and scenic landscapes – such as waterfalls, fjords and volcanic islands.
The first part of the journey offers our Enthusiast guests the chance to visit places that are the origins of traditional cultural art forms associated with the destinations – particularly music and dance. The mid-section of the journey visits a mix of remote and isolated islands and highlight cities offers culture enthusiasts an intriguing insight into the local societies and civilisations that have lived there throughout history, and nature Enthusiasts the opportunity to encounter a variety of wildlife species. The final part of the journey also offers the opportunity to visit some remoter off-the-beaten-track destinations and delve into that history of trading.
Each port of call and area of scenic cruising has been hand-selected based on those which have previously received the very best feedback from Fred. Olsen guests.
