“Northern Folktales and Traditions” is a fitting name for this voyage!
Ensconced in a part of the world known for its sea-going lifestyle, this voyage starts in Stockholm, the largest city in Scandinavia and architecturally one of the finest in the world, with broad streets, waterside parks and many pedestrian walkways. We recommend you arrive a day or two before your cruise to allow time to explore the many museums and get a deeper appreciation of Scandinavian history before setting off for a mix or Art Nouveau, medieval, and varied cultures of Sweden, Finland, Latvia, and Denmark.
In Helsinki, you will be amazed at the Cathedral built inside a large granite rock with amazing acoustics. In Tallin, visit the Old Town, preserved in its medieval state and a UNESCO site. See Visby, on the island of Gotland, Sweden, packed with artifacts from the time of the Vikings and once one of the most powerful cities in Europe.
In many ways, a trip into the past viewed from the lens of today.
