Circumnavigating the Baltic Sea

Explore nine countries united by the Baltic Sea, discover their intertwined histories, and encounter fascinating cultures. Delve deeper through dramatic water approaches, foray into character-filled villages and island stops for quiet walks. Wander along the medieval walled city of Visby, explore dazzling St. Petersburg over two days, and dine on local specialties—or have a deck party in the tranquil Swedish Archipelago. Enjoy ample choices and avenues for exploration in each of the cities. And explore from a privileged vantage point—cruising the Baltic Sea by ship allows us to sail routes of the old Hanseatic League, in the paths of early traders and nobles, and it lets us enter the cities as they were meant to be—by sea.

  • Venture into the medieval Old Towns of Riga and Tallinn, designated UNESCO World Heritage sites
  • Explore the tiny islands along the Finnish and Swedish coasts by kayak or on nature walks
  • View one of the world’s greatest art collections at the Hermitage Museum, explore St. Petersburg’s imperial treasures, including the palace of Catherine the First
  • Experience the fascinating ancient and contemporary history of nine Baltic countries firsthand
  • Adventure and Active
  • All Inclusive
