The TV presenter will join Borealis’ ‘Exploring the Rugged and Remote Greenland and Iceland cruise’ this August.

The popular TV presenter who has been on our screens since the 80s will deliver a talk on British wildlife. She will then be joined onstage by Borealis’ entertainment manager for a Q&A session.

Passengers will also have the chance to book an exclusive lunch with Michaela while she is onboard.

Fred Olsen’s
journey experience coordinator, James Moss, said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming Michaela Strachan onboard Borealis from August 4-8 as we sail to Iceland and Greenland.

“We know that our guests value the opportunity to learn more about nature and wildlife and they will thoroughly enjoy hearing Michaela’s stories from behind the scenes of wildlife filmmaking.”

Strachan added: “I’m really looking forward to joining this exciting Fred Olsen cruise and exploring some of the wildlife and wonders of Iceland.

“I’ve been to Iceland a couple of times before and guests are in for a real treat. The landscapes are beautiful, unique and extraordinary. It’s sure to be a memorable and magical experience.

“It’s not the destination that you should enjoy, but also the journey. Onboard there is always plenty to do and lots to get involved with.

“I will be doing a couple of talks for guests. One about the behind-the-scenes of wildlife filmmaking and why British wildlife programs are so popular and a Q&A about my career. [...] I’m really hoping my talks will enhance the journey experience.”

Fred Olsen’s 14-night ‘Exploring Rugged and Remote Greenland and Iceland’ cruise departs from Liverpool on August 4, 2023, and calls at Heimaey, Vestmannaeyjar, Reykjavík, and Ísafjördur in Iceland as well Qaqortoq, Narsarsauq and Nanortalik in Greenland before returning to Liverpool. Prices start from £1,499 per person.
