Itinerary

Travel to Norway and discover the irresistible charm and eccentricity of Oslo. If arriving early, head to the National Gallery of Art to glimpse Edvard Munch's famous painting, The Scream, or discover a Viking past at one of Oslo's many museums. Visit nearby Holmenkollen for a short hike on the plateau and wander through the Ski Museum, which is housed inside the monumental Holmenkollen ski jump and explores over 4,000 years of ski history!
Make tracks to the alpine playground of Lillehammer and wander through the Trollhaugen Open Air Museum. Perhaps hear tales of heroic feats at the Norwegian Olympic Museum or conquer misty mountains on a hike.
Be captivated by the sight of crisp mountain peaks reflected in the glassy waters of Sognefjord on a boat trip. Pass through Naeroyfjord, so named for the Norse god of seafarers and the sea. Fishing enthusiasts will love the opportunity to throw a line in, sit back and soak up the serenity.
Venture by train across the stunning countryside of the Fjell region. Arrive in Bergen, a quirky city with a host of things to see ranging from churches and museums to galleries and brightly coloured houses.
Absorb the timeless beauty of Stockholm, the ‘Venice of the North, on an orientation walk and check out the Vasa Museum. Perhaps sample galleries or nightclubs in trendy Sodermalm, head to the Skansen Open Air Museum or join a day trip to Uppsala.
Take time out aboard a ferry to the Aland Islands, and embark on a cycling sojourn through this pristine maritime area. Then, why not indulge in some steamy bliss at a day sauna before boarding an overnight ferry to Finland.
Before the Scandinavia Explorer comes to an end, discover a wealth of historical sights and gastronomic wonders in Helsinki. Perhaps visit the Suomenlinna Sea Fortress, a World Heritage-listed site that was once an important point of defence for the city, or wile away those precious few holiday hours in Kaisaniemi Park.
Catch a ferry across the Gulf of Finland to Estonia's charming capital, Tallinn. While here, the impressive Kadriorg Palace and quaint Old Town are worth a visit, or perhaps take a more active approach on a guided city bike tour.
Country-hop once again, this time into Latvia. Discover how Riga is renowned for its welcoming locals and a fascinating art nouveau heritage. Pay a visit to the Latvian Ethnographic Open-Air Museum, haggle with vendors in the Central Market or learn about the country’s history at the Museum of Occupation.
Make tracks to the former Prussian capital of Klaipeda and take a day trip to the unique, World Heritage-listed Curonian Spit National Park, a playground for outdoor enthusiasts. If feeling adventurous, grab a bicycle and explore this exceptional region on two-wheels.
Be wooed by the cosmopolitan charms of Lithuania's capital. See how each of the several European powers who have occupied this city have left their unique impression. Visit Cathedral Square and see Gediminas Tower on a city walk. In free time, why not take a peek into the mysterious world of espionage at the KGB Museum.
Hike and canoe through dense forests and appreciate the serenity of this natural wonderland. Come across medieval villages and learn about Lithuania's ancient beekeeping industry. Perhaps take the opportunity to soak in a traditional sauna.
Travel to Poland and spend time learning about how Warsaw was rebuilt from rubble after World War II. Mosey about in the Old Town and delve further into history at the Warsaw Uprising Museum. While here, perhaps take an excursion through the gilded hallways of the Royal Castle.
