With their captivating mix of medieval and modern, the port cities of Scandinavia and the Baltic are eternally elegant. Please join us in June 2018 for a ten-night voyage from Helsinki to Copenhagen aboard the three-masted sailing yacht, Sea Cloud II. Cruise past gothic spires and gabled houses illuminated by the summer sun, stepping ashore to explore historic buildings and museum treasures. This classic cruise features ample time at sea to experience Sea Cloud II under sail (weather permitting), when guests can watch the energetic young crew scale the masts to set the sails by hand.
From the splendid city of Helsinki, sail to Tallin, Estonia. . Discover the landmarks of Helsinki, including Eliel Saarinen's railway station and the superb collection of the Ateneum; and in Tallinn, Estonia, attend a private concert at St. Nicholas Church. During two days in Stockholm, see the Nobel Museum during a special early morning opening, followed by a visit to City Hall, where the Nobel Prize banquet is held. On the Swedish island of Gotland, stroll amid myriad roses in the Botanical Garden of Visby, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, before crossing the Baltic Sea to the fairytale city of Riga, Latvia, for a private organ performance at the Dome Cathedral. You may choose to join an excursion to the UNESCO-recognized Old Town of Vilnius, Lithuania, before disembarking in Copenhagen.
