Day 2 - Wonderful Copenhagen - small and intimate capital.

Copenhagen has a long history, and many delightful attractions and sights - you will never run out of something to see or to do. The city is small and cosy, an ideal way to explore the city is by foot, and public transport.

You will have a Copenhagen Card on hand allowing you to free travel on buses and trains within the cities metropolis, as well as free entrance to over 70 museums and attractions. Be sure to visit the new Aquarium if you are interested in design and fish! This new aquarium is included in the Copenhagen card.

If Viking ships and history interests you, consider a trip out to Roskilde Viking Ship Museum.  Or the Louisana Art Gallery for art lovers.

Be sure also to climb the tower of Church of our Savior - the spiral stairs were on the outside of the tower and it offers a great aerial view of the city! Not for the faint hearted though.

Days 8 - 9 - Charming Stockholm

In the morning catch a 6-hour train ride through the Swedish countryside to Stockholm. Sweden's capital is charming, vibrant and surrounded by beauty and water - hence its nickname, Venice of the North! Stockholm offers interesting museums and castles; the city offers a warm atmosphere and the old town has charming small alleyways boasting several famous restaurants.

On one of your afternoons here, be sure to make time for a visit to the ABBA museum with great interactive exhibits - a glass of champagne (for Dutch courage to get on stage & the pure fun of it) to accompany your tour is recommended! On the other hand, take the serious option & visit the Nobel Prize museum in the Old town.

Day 10 - Overnight ferry to Helsinki

The morning and early afternoon is free in Stockholm before boarding the overnight voyage to Helsinki through the magnificent Baltic Sea archipelago. Accommodation in seaside cabins with shower/WC.

1 Breakfast
Outside twin cabin with sea view and private facilities

Days 11 - 13 - Cool Helsinki with daytrip to Tallinn

You have two full days to explore this fabulous eastern Nordic capital. We recommend a walking tour of the city, which is known for its great mixture of neo-classical buildings, orthodox style churches and bars and restaurant scene. You have the opportunity to visit the Senate Square, Uspenski Cathedral, Parliament House, New Opera House, Sibelius Park & Monument and the Underground Temple. The included Helsinki card offers free entrance to almost 50 museums and use of public transportation. Need to take a break - head to the Kotiharjun Sauna, the last traditional wood-burning sauna in Helsinki.

On one of your days in Helsinki we have included return tickets for the ferry from Helsinki to Tallinn. Your trip to Tallinn would normally take a full day departing Helsinki at 07:30 in the morning and arriving back in Helsinki at 19:30. The ferry trip each way takes 2 hours and suddenly you are at the shores of this Eastern beauty. The infinitely charming medieval Old Town is well worth the visit. The cobblestone streets and medieval buildings are a whole world away from what you can expect from Helsinki, Stockholm, Oslo, or Copenhagen. Tallinn feels distinctly Eastern, its architecture reminding the visitor of other beautiful Eastern European Old Towns, such as those of Prague, Krakow, or Riga. Through its history, culture, and location, Estonia connects Eastern Europe, Central Europe, and Scandinavia, offering something altogether different in comparison to your itinerary so far.

Be sure to also check out the option of a day trip from Helsinki to Porvoo on a heritage sailing boat.
