Baltic combination

With Helsinki as the gateway, this itinerary combines the discovery of two major European cities, Helsinki and Stockholm. Travel by overnight ferry from city to city. Depart from Helsinki early evening when you can still admire the fjord in daylight, and arrive the next morning in the peaceful port of Stockholm.

Helsinki

A veritable garden city with more than 30% of the area is devoted to green spaces, and with a passion for design that will delight visitors. Like the whole of Finland, it's a vibrant, safe and nature-friendly city.
Your accommodation in Helsinki, Hotel Haven - One of a few charming city hotels, located close to the port and shopping district of Esplanadi.
The rooms provide lovely views of the pier, the market square and the presidential palace. The seafood restaurant and the pleasant fire crackling in the lounge after a day of exploring the city on foot or by bicycle both make this hotel particularly special.

Stockholm

With its harmonious combination of tradition and modernity, the city is constantly incorporating ever more futuristic urban planning in the middle of green spaces. The energy of the Swedish capital takes you between the tranquil waters of Lake Mälar and the waves of the Baltic Sea. Built on 14 islands, the capital can be discovered on foot through old lanes and pedestrian streets, or by ferry for crossings of the archipelago that fill your lungs with salty fresh air.
Your accommodation in Stockholm, the Skeppsholmen Hotel - A charming place, located on a quiet island facing the sea, a few minutes' walk from the centre of the capital. The splendour of the 17th-century building remains, but the hotel has added contemporary details to the interiors, giving them a more modern and comfortable feel. An ideal place to recharge your batteries, with the sea on the horizon and trendy places like the Stockholm galleries and museums on your doorstep.

DAY 6

Stockholm - Return flight

A la carte

Bespoke Stockholm

We can offer you an itinerary that is alive with experiences that take you beyond the traditional sightseeing tours. In Stockholm, we recommend a lunch cruise aboard an authentic wooden schooner from 1909, the perfect opportunity to see the region from the water. Alternatively, take a 90-minute tour of the city by speedboat or by kayak for a more adventurous journey. Another unusual element to a family trip is to head out of the centre of Stockholm to experience a night safari to spot moose and other wildlife in the woods surrounding the capital. A floating sauna, sea fishing, a cycling tour through the city and a rooftop walk along the listed buildings in the city's old town of Gamla Stan are all musts when visiting Stockholm.
