A cruise is one of the best ways to explore the stunning towns, cities and landscapes of the Scandinavian region.
From Stockholm, Gothenburg and Copenhagen through to Tallinn, Helsinki and St Petersburg, you can experience some of the liveliest and most beautiful cities, not only in the region, but in the world.
The area boasts dramatic scenery, fascinating cultures, history and archaeology. Very few cruises can offer the diversity of cultures and historic traditions that a cruise in this region can. Vikings, fjords, cliffs, glaciers, waterfalls, lakes, and churches, the region guarantees stunning landscapes and captivating cities.
Cruises in this region often sail from a UK port such as Dover or Harwich with a couple of sea days to relax before a busy itinerary. Another option is to fly and meet your ship in either Copenhagen or Amsterdam for a cruise that will run for around seven nights. Whichever option you choose, this kind of destination intensive itinerary is where taking a cruise really comes into its own. Having unpacked just once, your ship will glide between Europe's northern capitals without you having to lift a finger, other than to order another well-deserved post-sightseeing cocktail.
Cruises to this region are best taken in summer as the fjords tend to freeze over in winter
