This late summer cruise takes in the breathtaking beauty of Stockholm’s archipelago, the fascinating community spirit of the Åland Islands and the medieval ruins on the island of Gotland. Added to Copenhagen’s royal palaces and castles to deliver a memorable experience.
SHORE WALKS AND EXCURSION HIGHLIGHTS:
Rønne - Rønne is the largest town on the small rocky island of Bornholm. The Danish town o¬ffers a historical charm with its cobblestoned streets and cross-timbered houses.
Visby - We visit the walled town with its cobbled streets and roses on the Swedish holiday island of Gotland and take a short countryside walk.
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.
Mariehamn, Åland - Our maiden call to the islands of Åland gives us the opportunity to explore the environs of this Swedish speaking port of Finland. Known as The Town of a Thousand Linden Trees, Mariehamn is the capital of this amalgam of nearly 7000 islands.
Copenhagen - Home to the Little Mermaid, with colourfully painted canal side houses of Nyhavn and the self proclaimed autonomous neighbourhood of Christiania.
