North America covers a vast area stretching from Alaska to Mexico. As a continent, it offers a huge choice of sights, highlights and experiences from the majestic mountains, lakes and towering forests of Canada to the modern, pulsating metropolises of the USA and the idyllic beaches along Mexico’s Pacific coast.
The diversity of the region’s natural beauty, rich history and fascinating history never fails to captivate, no matter which of the countries, islands and cities you visit. North America can claim to cover every climatic zone, from the often intense heat of the Mexican coast to the cooling breeze that washes along the shores of Canada.
For adventures of discover and exploration, it doesn’t get much better than North America.
The extraordinary history of Canada’s easternmost settlements offer insights into the early beginnings of Newfoundland and Quebec, while a trip to the country’s coastal destinations provides an autumn colour-fest of trees and leaves. Some Fred. Olsen cruises to Canada are specifically crafted by our journey planners to show you this awe-inspiring country in all its autumnal splendour, when the vast forests and countryside scenes turn into their fall-time hues of gold, red, brown and yellow.
Beyond North America’s natural treasures, there’s a different kind of beauty to experience amongst the sprawling streets, blocks and towering buildings of cities such as iconic New York and bustling Boston. Revel in the magnificent of famous skyscrapers and landmarks, get a feel for the energetic lifestyle, sample the vibrant culture and much more.

North America has the capacity to fulfil any travel dream, and a cruise along the shores of this continent offers a kaleidoscope of landscapes and history, cultures and cuisines.
