Sail aboard the elegant Sea Cloud II on this fascinating exploration of five nations bordering the Baltic Sea. At the height of summer, sunlight extends into the evening hours and temperatures are mild, making this an ideal time to soak up the rich history, diverse cultures, and magnificent monuments of Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Russia, and Sweden.
Marvel at the maritime city of Copenhagen, once a Viking fishing village and now the cultural, economic, and governmental center of Denmark, and the remote Danish island of Bornholm. Our next ports of call, Riga and Tallinn in the newly independent Baltic states of Latvia and Estonia, boast marvelously untouched medieval quarters. In St. Petersburg, the most Westernized city in Russia, enjoy the grandeur of its country estates and the incomparable Hermitage Museum. End in Stockholm, Sweden’s beautiful cosmopolitan capital spread across 14 islands. Optional post-trip extensions in Stockholm and Stockholm/Helsinki are also available.
