    Beautiful parks and gardens, attractive 17th and 18th century buildings, grand castles and the elegant Amalienborg Palace, home to the reigning Queen Margrethe II, grace the city that is laced with a labyrinth of winding canals.

    Cafés and restaurants spill out of brightly coloured townhouses onto the cobblestone streets in historic Nyhavn. The atmospheric waterfront area is a popular meeting place, along with the world’s oldest entertainment park Tivoli Gardens.

    Estonia’s capital is a fascinating mix of Scandinavian sleek, Soviet-era concrete and medieval Hanseatic city. Tumbling down Toompea Hill, the historic Old Town is a maze of narrow, cobblestone streets and alleyways, turrets and spires. Wrapped within the original medieval wall which is studded with imaginatively named towers, the castle, onion-domed Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Town Hall Square and Gothic Town Hall survive along with the aura of the 14th and 15th centuries. Just outside the city, Rocca al Mare is an open-air museum of Estonia’s rural architecture from the 18th to the 20th centuries.

  • Days 8 & 9 - St. Petersburg

    (Day 8) Arrive 07:00. (Day 9) Depart 19:00.

    Peter the Great founded St. Petersburg in 1703 as his ‘Window on the West’. Drawing inspiration from Europe, the Russian Tsar and his successors created an extraordinary city on the banks of the River Neva with opulent palaces, ornate churches and splendid parks all part of the supremely elegant architectural ensemble. The magnificent Hermitage and its priceless treasures of art, the grandeur of Catherine’s Palace at Pushkin and the gilded fountains in the gardens at Peterhof illustrate the lavish lifestyle of Russia’s former ruling elite. The birthplace of Russian ballet, St. Petersburg is the perfect place to take in the performing arts.

    Meals - Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  • Day 10 - Helsinki

    Arrive 08:00. Depart 15:30.

    Finland’s capital is a vibrant, modern city, yet very much in harmony with the surrounding nature. Its centrepiece is the majestic Senate Square, lined with elegant neoclassical buildings and the impressive Lutheran Cathedral, with white Corinthian columns and five green cupolas.

    A striking exception to Helsinki’s general architectural style is the Russian Orthodox, onion-domed Uspenski Cathedral, which stands on a hill at the end of Market Square and dominates the city skyline.

    Built into solid rock, Temppeliaukio Church is also somewhat unusual. Museums are plentiful with the National Museum of Finland, the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design Museum amongst the most notable.

    Meals - Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  • Day 11 - Stockholm

    Arrive 08:00. Depart 15:00.

    Approached through an archipelago of 24,000 islands and islets, Sweden’s stately and spacious capital is itself built on 14 islands connected by 50 bridges. Founded in 1252, Stockholm grew up around Gamla Stan.

    The charming Old Town is a maze of medieval alleys and tiny lanes lined with 16th century buildings, some of which feature wrought-iron signs symbolising ancient craft workers’ guilds. A delightful mix of parkland and forest, Royal Djurgården is Stockholm’s city park.

    The island is home to the magnificent Vasa Museum, housing a salvaged 17th century Swedish warship that sunk on its maiden voyage.

    Meals - Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  • Day 13 - Aarhus

    Arrive 08:45. Depart 13:30.

    Aarhus is the second-largest city in Denmark. Aarhus began as a fortified Viking settlement founded in the 8th century with the first written records stemming from the bishopric seated here from at least 948. The city was founded on the northern shores of a fjord at a natural harbour and, for centuries, seaborne trade in agricultural products was the primary cause for growth. Aarhus has developed in stages, from the Viking age to modern times and, as such, many architectural styles are represented in different parts of the city such as Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, National Romantic, Nordic classicism, Neoclassical, Empire and Functionalism.
