Day 1: ARRIVE HELSINKI
Arrival in Helsinki and transfer on own to your hotel. Helsinki was founded in 1550 by the Swedish King Gustav Vasa, as a trading post to compete with Tallinn, to the south, in Estonia. In the beginning of the 19th century Finland became part of Russia, and Tsar Alexander I made Helsinki capital in 1812. Since the beginning of the 20th century Finland has been independent, and today Helsinki pulls off the trick of being something of an international metropolis while still retaining a small-town feel. The many parks, museums and churches are well worth a visit. We also warmly recommend a visit to the charming Suomenlinna Fortress, since 1991 on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List, as a unique monument to European military architecture. Accommodation at 3 star+ hotel in Helsinki, centrally located
Day 2: HELSINKI – OVERNIGHT CRUISE
Breakfast at the hotel and day for leisure. Afternoon transfer on own to the pier for embarkation on your overnight cruise to Stockholm, departing at 17.00. There are restaurants and entertainment on board.

Day 3: OVERNIGHT CRUISE - STOCKHOLM
Buffet breakfast on board and arrival in Stockholm at 09.30 followed by transfer on own to the hotel. Stockholm, one of the most beautiful capitals in the world, is built on 14 islands, connected by 57 bridges. The beautiful buildings, the green parks, the fresh air and the proximity to the water are distinctive traits of this city. With 750 years of history and a rich cultural life, Stockholm offers a wide selection of world class museums and attractions. We recommend a canal cruise or a visit to the Vasa Museum. The impressive warship Vasa sank on her maiden voyage in 1628 but was salvaged 333 years later in 1961. She has since been restored and can now be seen with her complete rigging at the Vasa Museum. Remember also to visit the famous old town, Gamla Stan, or one of the many other museums.

Day 4: STOCKHOLM - COPENHAGEN
Breakfast at the hotel. Train 2nd class from Stockholm to Copenhagen (Duration approx. 5-6 hrs). Copenhagen, since 1417 the capital city of the Kingdom of Denmark. Copenhagen is one of Europe's oldest capitals with a royal touch - the monarchy in Denmark is the oldest in the world! Copenhagen is a place where old fairy tales blend with flashy new architecture and world class design. Copenhagen is also considered one of the world's most environmentally friendly cities and one of the world’s leading cycle cities. We recommend a visit to the Tivoli Gardens (not open all year), the Amalienborg Palace, the Christiansborg Palace (Danish Parliament), the Gefion Fountain, the old harbour ‘Nyhavn’, the Little Mermaid, the Round Tower, the Carlsberg Museum or one of the many other museums of art, culture, history and design. Also remember time to just stroll along the pedestrian shopping streets of Strøget and its surrounding streets.

The city is situated at the northernmost point of the 100 kms long Oslo Fiord and here you can soak in the beauty of the Vigeland Park, the Royal Castle, the City Hall, the Parliament Building, the Bygdøy Peninsula with its inspiring museums, the Akerhus Fortress, Aker Brygge and many other interest sights.
