Itinerary

Day 1:                              Arrival Stockholm

Arrival in Stockholm Arlanda (flights are own arrangement). Your bus and guide meet you at the airport and you will experience the Swedish capital from different angles. Built on 14 islands it is not surprising that water has been dominating life in Stockholm for centuries. On your city tour you will see, amongst others, the idyllic old city centre “Gamla Stan” with its narrow cobbled alleys and the beautiful gables, the cathedral Storkyrkan (13th century), the main square and the royal castle.

Overnight in Stockholm.

Day 2:                             Stockholm-Riga

After breakfast you have time for yourself to see more of the city. We recommend visiting the Vasa Museum, displaying the royal ship Vasa which sunk on its maiden trip and has been lifted from the bottom of the sea for you to see. Or how about a boat tour into lake Mälaren to the royal castle Drottningholm? We will gladly help you with the arrangements.

In the afternoon you embark on your cruise over the Baltic Sea to Riga.

Entertainment on board, outlined by Tallink Silja: Throughout the journey, the ship’s entertainers will do their best to provide passengers with positive and memorable emotions. To make sure that every moment is filled with action, the youthful and energetic party band will play music the whole time. In the pub, you can enjoy elegant music by the troubadour who will later in the evening be replaced by passengers themselves when it is time for a crazy karaoke night with our energetic karaoke host. At night, passengers can enjoy lively music and dance the night away in the ship’s disco bar where the DJ will spin records until the early hours.
