Sail along traditional trade routes – a summer voyage to the harbours of Scandinavia and the Baltic.

Six countries in ten days
From the distinctive architecture of Scandinavia to the fairytale romance of St Petersburg and its golden
cupolas, the Baltic Sea proposes a range of unique and vastly differing impressions. On its journey, our windjammer will call in six countries offering countless UNESCO World Heritage Sites and fascinating insights into the scenic and cultural diversity of this region.

Danzig: a city with many stories to tell
Founded over one thousand years ago and renowned as a cosmopolitan, wealthy trade port, Danzig (Gdansk) is one of Poland’s most beautiful cities. The "Rechtstadt" in the heart of the city is a must, enchanting visitors with delightful small streets and a wealth of historical sights: St Mary’s Basilica, Arthur’s Court and the Golden Gate are all easily accessible by foot.

A perfect medieval scene: Visby
Visby was once the most important trade port between the West and the Baltic. Today, the Swedish Hanseatic city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visby is a place where the Middle Ages magically come to life. The idyllic old town, with its narrow alleyways, small half-timbered houses and picturesque church ruins, is protected by an impressive city wall featuring 50 watchtowers and countless drawbridges.

Stockholm and its archipelago
On mild summer evenings, Sweden’s capital city exudes a Mediterranean joie de vivre. Stockholm is creative and in tune with nature, welcoming and historical, a shopping paradise and home of the Royal Palace. Upon departure in the evening, you will be greeted by an idyllic view of the old town island before entering the enchanting world of the skerry landscape and its 30,000 islands.

St Petersburg – the old city of the tsars
In 1703, Tsar Peter the Great charged the best architects of his day with the planning of a perfect and harmonious city. The result was one of the most brilliant cities of old Europe. Thanks to its abundance of unique buildings, including the Church of the Resurrection, St Isaac’s Cathedral, the Hermitage and the Catherine Palace, the old capital city of the Russian Empire is still considered an architectural marvel today.

Enchanting melodies on board
In addition to a lecturer, who will be giving short talks on our various destinations, musicians will also be joining us to provide the perfect musical accompaniment to our voyage.
Guests arrive individually in Travemünde. Embarkation on the Sea Cloud ii. The Baltic spa town of Travemünde is the finest borough of Lübeck and since 1329 has provided the Hanseatic city's access to the Baltic Sea at the mouth of the Trave. At the front, the old façades of the promenade along the River Trave are the external face of this former fishing and seafaring village, whose pretty old 16th century town houses nestle in alleys surrounding the church of Saint Lorenz. The legendary casino and spa hotel between the spa gardens and seafront are testament to over 200 years as a seaside resort. Whether it's exploring the wild beach beneath the Brodtener Ufer cliffs, the long white spa beach or the Priwall peninsula opposite, admiring the four-masted 'Passat' barque - a standing testament to past times - or watching as the huge ferries and cruise ships sweep past within touching distance on their way up or down the Trave - there is plenty to see and do in Travemünde.
Together with the chic seaside resort of Sopot and the port of Gdynia, the old Hanseatic city of Gda?sk has a young and confident vibe. With its eventful past, the queen of the Polish Baltic cities was already prosperous and respected in the middle ages and was a flourishing trading centre for many years. Its reconstructed historic old town is a work of art in its own right with sky-scraping brick Gothic edifices and grand patricians' houses boasting magnificent façades and gables which betray Flemish, Dutch and German influences. Everything is overshadowed by the imposing medieval church of St Mary which is the world's largest brick church. In the golden Hanseatic era, the route formed by the famous Long Market and Long Street between the Golden Gate and the Vistula was the lifeline of this prosperous city, which continues to trade successfully in Baltic amber to this day. Optional Excursion - Marienburg Castle and city tour Gdansk.
Surrounded by the deep blue sea, the second largest Baltic island is bathed in sunshine during the brief summer months and has the look of a small country in its own right. Lofty crags, strange limestone formations, broad sand and pebble beaches and forests with wind-bent pine trees form a coastal landscape which extends for almost 500 miles. Similarly diverse are the island's astonishing culinary delights and Gotland's rich history which includes prehistoric sites, unique treasures from the Viking era and Visby, the oldest Baltic Hanseatic city which has remained almost unchanged since its heyday in the middle ages. The old town with its imposing 2-mile, 13th century circular wall was once christened 'regina maris' or 'queen of the sea' and provided a refuge for legendary pirate Klaus Störtebeker. Since 1805 it has been classified as a protected monument and since1995 it has been listed as a UNESCO world heritage site. Optional City walking tour or cycling tour.
On its Baltic side, Stockholm looks out to an archipelago of thousands of craggy islands while to the west lies the vast Lake Mälaren. The city itself spans 14 islands connected by more than 50 bridges. In the middle on the city island are the origins of Sweden's magnificent capital. Yellow-gold town houses, splendid Renaissance palaces dating back to the city's hey day and the royal palace crowd the old town of Gamla Stan, a heritage site boasting a medieval network of narrow cobbled streets which lead down to the water's edge. With a third of its area occupied by water and another third by green spaces, this cultural city manages to be both modern and traditional. Here you will find Nordic design, fashion, art, modern architecture, boulevards, promenades, royal residences, seats of government and no fewer than three UNESCO world heritage sites. Optional City tour including visit of the Vasa Museum. Picturesque journey through the skerries.
The Estonian capital of Tallinn lies on the Gulf of Finland some 50 miles south of Helsinki. Known as Reval during the Hanseatic era, it was the most important trading port on the Baltic Sea in the 15th century. Those walking through the old town will find themselves transported back to the world of wealthy medieval townsfolk. Russian onion domes and medieval gabled houses restored to their former glory mark the border between east and west. The city's rich historic heritage, still guarded by lofty town walls, is under UNESCO protection. Today, Tallinn is a lively Scandinavian city with a very Hanseatic look, where the middle ages meet modern life. Optional City walking tour.
The Finnish capital sits on the seafront overlooking countless islands and skerries off the coast. The centre is compact and charming. The protestant cathedral styled on St. Isaac's Cathedral in St. Petersburg overlooks Senate Square with its magnificent neo-classical façades and reflects the splendour of a capital which once served the Tsars. Later, the middle classes showcased their national confidence in Finnish Art Nouveau, its curved lines oozing functionalism and modernism. Indeed in 2012, the trend towards simple, accomplished Finnish style earned Helsinki the title of world design capital. Above all else though, Helsinki is an ever-changing city shaped by the sea - a lively hub in constant flux. Optional City tour.
Morning sun follows sunset, night falls only briefly and then an entire city is wide awake. The 'white nights' cast a magic light over this magnificent city forged by the will of the Tsar. Built largely on posts in the ground by Peter the Great in 1703, Saint Petersburg - a 'capital from nothing' - offered the Russian Empire access to the Baltic Sea and the west between the 18th and 20th centuries. The extremely impressive entrance to the shining gold city on the Neva River demonstrates the full extent of St. Petersburg's power. Built predominantly in the neo-classical style, the Hermitage complex which includes the Winter Palace where the Tsars once lived, dates back to Catherine the Great. Now one of the world's most important art museums occupies more than 350 rooms. St. Isaac's Cathedral is the largest cathedral in Russia, while the Church of the Saviour is a playful work of art in the Russian Art Nouveau style. The wonders of this former tsarist capital with 2,300 palaces, ornate buildings and castles are all listed as UNESCO world heritage sites. Excursion to the Peterhof tsar residence in the morning. Optional Evening tour of the Hermitage including concert. Day 11 - Disembarkation. Guests return home individually.
