Experience 3 coastal cities in one holiday
Combine an exciting city holiday staying at modern Scandic hotels with an overnight cruise aboard a luxury Tallink Silja ship. First you will fly to Stockholm and stay there for 1 night. With at least 70 museums and countless galleries, boutiques and restaurants, the Swedish capital caters for all cultural needs. Don’t miss the maze-like streets of the Old Town or the Vasa Museum, home to the only intact 17th century warship to have ever been salvaged. The following day you continue on overnight cruise to Helsinki and sail through the stunningly beautiful Stockholm archipelago. You will arrive to Helsinki in the morning and have rest of the day free to explore the city. The Finnish capital is a lively, green city characterised by the Parisian ambience of Esplanade Park. Neoclassical buildings surround its town squares and Finnish heritage has been carefully preserved in dozens of museums. Finally, enjoy a day trip by ferry to Tallinn in Estonia. Wander its medieval streets and round it all off with a glass of mulled wine at Kloostri Ait, an ex Dominican monastery and Tallinn’s bar of bars. Return to Helsinki in the evening and fly home the next day.
