Guided Cruise & Walking Holidays - Swedish Waterways

Early summer is the perfect time to experience the pastels of Swedish fishing harbours, the cobbled streets of old towns and outdoor museums, beaches and rocks which shelve into the sea, and cruise into the capital through the thousand islands of the Stockholm Archipelago.

Our unique shore walks and excursions include:

Stockholm: Built across 14 islands, you are never far from the water, whether you are in the cobbled streets of Gamla Stan, the old town, or walking through parkland or open air museums.

Malmö: Home to the tallest buildings in Sweden including the intriguing Turning Torso, we walk the squares and parks and visit the castles of this charming city, Sweden’s most multicultural metropolis where 150 nationalities make up the head count.

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 roses.

Gothenburg: Home to tranquil 17th century canals, we take an interesting walk to the Botanic Gardens through Slottsskogsparken, a very rural green space close to the city centre. With luck we may see Elk or Deer.

Balmoral retains the warm, intimate and friendly atmosphere that the Fred. Olsen fleet is renowned for. Featuring 710 well-appointed rooms and suites and a selection of comfortable lounges, bars and inviting public areas, which have been recently extensively refitted and improved, Balmoral provides guests with ample space in which to relax and enjoy the facilities on board.
