A cruise around the Baltic Sea is the perfect way to sample the splendors of Europe’s northern capitals of culture and the Baltic scenery. With an emphasis on sightseeing, wherever possible we take the opportunity to explore the local countryside beyond the historic cities.
Our unique shore walks and excursions include:
St Petersburg: The jewel in the Baltic crown, where we visit The Hermitage, Church of The Spilt Blood and Catherine Palace amongst many great sights.
Copenhagen: Home to the Little Mermaid, with colourfully painted canal side houses of Nyhavn canals, the alternative lifestyle area of Christiania and the Tivoli Gardens.
Stockholm: Built on fourteen islands, Stockholm is the perfect place to spend time in the cobbled streets of the old town and the magnificent parklands.
Tallinn: Capital of Estonia, Tallinn is an up and coming place, yet with a medieval old quarter which is everyone’s idea of the Middle Ages.
Klaipeda: Situated on the west coast, Klaipeda in Lithuania has an interesting history, having changed hands several times over the years. We explore the diverse range of museums and the UNESCO-Listed Curonian Spit with a local guide.
Visby: On the Swedish holiday island of Gotland. We take a short countryside walk and visit Visby’s walled town with its cobbled streets and rose-bedecked cottages.
Riga: Our tour includes Riga Castle, Cathedral and Powder Tower, Swedish Gate entrance to the Old Town, gabled houses on Maza Pils Street and the Cat House.
Kiel Canal?: We sail through the world’s busiest artificial waterway, flowing for about 60 miles/100km and linking the North Sea with the Baltic.
