Overview

Few seas are as intriguing as the Baltic. Almost landlocked, it’s the liquid bond between Scandinavia, Finland and the Baltic States – the three destinations on this fascinating journey by rail and ferry. The Baltic Sea flourished during the Middle Ages when merchants traded herring, timber, flax and fur between the ports of the Hanseatic League.

Many of the cities you’ll visit – such as Copenhagen and Stockholm – are steeped in the history of this period. Swapping trains for ships and criss-crossing the Baltic, you will visit the beautiful Finnish cities of Turku and Tampere, as well as the capital, Helsinki. We’ve also included time in the Estonian capital of Tallinn – perhaps the most magnificent Hanseatic city of all.

Train across Southern Scandinavia

After travelling by train through Belgium and Germany, and spending your first night in Cologne, you arrive in the stylish Danish capital of Copenhagen – at the entrance to the Baltic Sea. A statue of Hans Christian Andersen’s Little Mermaid gazes across the harbour, while longboats take pride of place in the Viking Ship Museum at nearby Roskilde. Other attractions include Tivoli Gardens and the chilled neighbourhood of Christianshavn – not to mention a plethora of designer shops and Michelin-starred restaurants. Continuing by train to Stockholm, you’ll have time to delve into the medieval heart of the Swedish capital, admired for its waterways and cobblestone streets lined by warmly-coloured buildings.

Across the Baltic to Finland

Your first voyage eases through the Stockholm Archipelago before crossing the Baltic Sea, via the Åland Islands. Approaching Finland, you weave through another maze-like archipelago (Finland’s Baltic coast is fringed by over 40,000 islands) to reach Turku. Boasting a fine 13th-century castle and cathedral, this beautiful coastal city is also the gateway to the 250km-long Archipelago Trail. From Turku it is just a two-hour train ride inland to the lakeside city of Tampere. Finland’s culture capital, Tampere has a thriving theatre and festival scene, as well as several museums and public saunas. Another two-hour train journey returns you to the Baltic coast at Helsinki – a cultural and architectural treat whether you’re seeking out the city’s cutting-edge design scene, admiring its neoclassical cathedral or planning a visit to the 18th-century Suomenlinna fortress.

Estonia’s medieval masterpiece

A short voyage from Helsinki, the Estonian capital of Tallinn has one of Europe’s best preserved Hanseatic centres. Cobblestone streets wind past medieval churches, ornate merchant houses and the only surviving Gothic town hall in northern Europe. It’s no surprise to discover that Tallin’s 15th-century fairytale-like Old Town is a UNESCO world heritage site – but the city also has a strong modern vibe, encapsulated by its trendy shops and restaurants and the futuristic Kumu art museum.

Day 3 Copenhagen

The Danish capital is easily explored on foot – or you could hire an electric bike. Perhaps start with the Tivoli Gardens, an intriguing mix of parks, lakes, historic buildings and amusement rides, including a wooden rollercoaster dating from 1914. There’s also a great choice of bars, cafés and restaurants. Return at nightfall and you will find the gardens lit up by thousands of colourful lights. Other city highlights include royal palaces and castles, such as Amalienborg, Christiansborg and Kronborg. Don’t miss the bronze statue of the Little Mermaid or the 17th-century harbour, Nyhavn, where you will find colourful townhouses and waterfront eateries. To experience a spot of Danish hygge, seek out the soulful neighbourhood of Christianshavn, well-known for the self-governing community of Freetown Christiania and a great selection of cafés and restaurants.

Day 4 Copenhagen - Stockholm

Leaving Copenhagen, travel by train across the 8km-long Oresund Bridge to Sweden and continue north to Stockholm. Described by locals as ‘beauty on water’, Gamla Stan – the medieval heart of Stockholm – is one of Europe’s most charming and beautifully preserved historic centres. Gabled, golden-hued buildings cast shimmering reflections across the surrounding waters, while cobblestone streets weave between handicraft boutiques, cafés, bars and restaurants. You will find ample choice of cafés, bistros and restaurants, each offering local gastronomic specialities. Spend two nights in Stockholm.

Day 5 Stockholm

Visit the world’s oldest open-air museum at Skansen (with its 150 historic buildings) and the nearby Vasa Museum, which displays the amazing relic of the Vasa, a warship that sank on its maiden voyage in 1628. The interactive ABBA Museum is another favourite among visitors. We also recommend a visit to the 600-room Royal Palace, or a trip to Drottningholm Castle – the private residence of the Swedish royal family.

Day 6 Stockholm - Turku

After an early morning departure at 7am*, check in to your choice of cabin for the Stockholm-Turku sailing aboard the Silja Line’s Galaxy or Baltic Princess ship. Sail through the narrow straits and inlets of the Stockholm Archipelago, watching the myriad islands slowly pass by, before reaching the open waters of the Baltic Sea. This is an all-day sailing (lasting around 9 hours), so you will have plenty of time to enjoy a meal on board (restaurants serve buffets and a la carte meals), browse the fashion and duty-free shops, enjoy live music and entertainment and even take a sauna. In the early afternoon, the ship makes a brief call at the Port of Mariehamn in the Åland Islands before sailing on through the stunning archipelago of 20,000 islands lying off the coast of Turku. Evening arrival in the Finnish city.

*Please note: it is also possible to spend the day in Stockholm and depart in the evening, sailing overnight and arriving in Turku at 7am the following morning.

Day 9 Turku - Tampere

A two-hour train ride takes you from Turku to Tampere in the heart of Finnish Lakeland, where you spend the following two nights. Founded on a narrow isthmus between two large lakes – Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi –Tampere developed around the churning Tammerkoski rapids, where hydroelectric power was the driving force behind Finnish industrialism in the late 18th century. Nowadays, many of the city’s impressive red-brick buildings have found a new lease of life as shops, restaurants and quirky museums.

Tampere is also known as the culture capital of Finland. As well as a packed calendar of festivals and concerts, the city boasts an open-air theatre during the summer and year-round exhibitions at the Vapriikki Museum Centre on themes ranging from history to technology. In recent years, Tampere has also received the accolade of Finland’s sauna capital. Among the 20 public saunas, the oldest (Rajaportti) was built in 1906. The ritual of the sauna is an intrinsic part of Finnish culture – you may find yourself becoming addicted! Spend two nights in Tampere.

Day 10 Tampere

With a full day to explore Tampere, start perhaps with a walk out to Pyynikki nature reserve where an observation tower offers wonderful views over Lake Pyhäjärvi and the Pyynikinharju ridge – the world’s tallest esker, rising 85m above the lake. The café here serves the best doughnuts in the city and probably the whole of Finland. Nearby, you will find the 19th-century neighbourhood of Pispala where colourful wooden houses (originally built for factory workers) are scattered across a hillside above the lake. One of the most beautiful parts of Tampere, Pispala has a thriving artist community, as well as the Rajaportti sauna, the Hirvitalo centre of contemporary arts and the Kurpitsatalo community gardening project.

Your stay in Tampere wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the revolving observation tower and restaurant at Näsinneula on the shores of scenic Lake Näsijärvi. Not only can you expect some of the best meals in town here, but also the most beautiful views of the lake and city. If you want to try something different, yet typically Finnish, take a 20-minute boat ride (June to August) to the island of Viikinsaari on Lake Pyhäjärvi. As well as a lakeside sauna that can be hired for private use (public use on Sundays), there’s a nature trail, water sports and a restaurant serving a la carte dishes.

Back in the city centre, the market hall, Kauppahalli, is a great place for a meal or a cup of coffee, in an atmospheric, 120-year-old setting.

Day 11 Tampere - Helsinki

In just under two hours by train, arrive in the Finnish capital of Helsinki, where you will spend the following two nights. A UNESCO City of Design, Helsinki is the country’s creative hub with a huge range of galleries, workshops and boutiques showcasing everything from fashion to furniture, textiles and glassware. Head to the Design District, south of the city centre, and delve into the superb Design Museum, the Museum of Finnish Architecture and Didrichsen Art Museum. Helsinki’s architecture is equally impressive. Spanning Byzantine-Russian and Neoclassical to Art Nouveau and Minimalist, there are styles to appeal to all tastes. Make a bee-line for iconic buildings, such as Oodi (with its striking glass and steel façade), the red-brick Uspenski Cathedral, the extraordinary Temppeliaukio Church (hewn from solid rock and renowned for its acoustics) and the Kamppi Chapel – a wooden, windowless ‘space of silence’ in the heart of the city.

Helsinki is also renowned for its green spaces. As well as strolling through its parks and gardens, you can hike in nearby forests or take a boat trip through the offshore archipelago. The food scene is just as appealing. Helsinki has several Michelin-starred restaurants, while busy bistros and the historic, covered market of Kauppahalli are bursting with local, seasonal Finnish flavours, inspired by forest and sea. Try mouth-watering dishes of salmon, arctic char, elk and grouse, with forest mushrooms, berries and herbs. Spend two nights in Helsinki.

Day 12 Helsinki

Choose to spend your second day in Helsinki exploring more of its Design District, perhaps enjoying a steam at the Löyly sauna or a dip in the heated Allas Sea Pool. Walk through Esplanade Park and browse the surrounding streets for famous Finnish products, such as Iittala glass and ceramics, Marimekko clothing and fabrics, Kalevala jewellery and Pentik ceramics. At the Market Square, you will find traditional foods, handicrafts and souvenirs – during summer the stalls are laden with berries, fruits and vegetables. It’s a great place to stop for a coffee or ice cream and watch the locals go about their day.

An alternative plan for the day (or an additional day if you’d like to extend your stay), the Helsinki Archipelago of around 300 islands is easily accessed by ferry. One of the most popular islands to visit is Suomenlinna where a UNESCO world heritage-listed fortress provides a fascinating glimpse into the region’s history. Dating from the mid-18th century, the fort has served in the defence of not only Finland, but also Sweden and Russia.

Day 13 Helsinki - Tallinn

Depart Helsinki in the morning for a two-hour sailing to the Estonian capital of Tallinn aboard Silja Line’s fast ferry Megastar. A treasure of the Baltic, the medieval, walled Old Town of Tallinn is one of the best-preserved Hanseatic centres in the world – a fairy-tale streetscape of Gothic towers, elegant merchant houses and medieval churches. Start your exploration of this UNESCO world heritage site at the Town Hall Square – bustling with outdoor cafés and stalls during summer and the site of a magical Christmas market in winter. Climb the winding staircase to the steeple of St Olav’s Church for mesmerising views across the city’s clay-tiled rooftops and cobbled streets. On Toompea hill you will find a 13th-century castle with a pink-hued Baroque façade (home to Estonia’s parliament) and the imposing Russian Orthodox Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. A short walk from the Old Town, the wooden buildings of Kalamaja’s old fishermen’s neighbourhood have some of Tallinn’s best cafés and restaurants. Overnight in Tallinn.

Day 14 Tallinn - Stockholm

You will have most of the day in Tallinn as the sailing to Stockholm does not leave until 18:00 tonight. Although you may well want to return to the Old Town, there are plenty of other city highlights to see. With its flower gardens and tree-lined promenade, Kadriorg Park is a lovely spot for a morning stroll – and it’s also the location of several art museums, including contemporary Kumu. Just 15 minutes from the city centre, the Estonian Open Air Museum resurrects the country’s rural architecture, while the 314m-tall Tallinn Television Tower provides panoramic views. Overnight sailing to Stockholm aboard the Silja Line’s Baltic Queen or Victoria, both of which offer a wide choice of cabins, as well as bars, restaurants, shopping, live music and entertainment.
