Cruise to Scandinavia & the Baltic
Our Scandinavian and Baltic cruises offer so many Scenic Discoveries, from sailing along Oslofjord, passing the Olsen family home in Hvitsten, to cruising the beautiful Stockholm Archipelago. Our itineraries blend vibrant capitals such as Copenhagen with medieval gems, including Visby on the Swedish island of Gotland, offering the chance to explore this wonderful region in depth.
Baltic and Scandinavia - The Olsen Way
Scenic Discoveries – The Stockholm Archipelago
Our journey planners craft our itineraries to ensure you sail in and out of Stockholm at the best time of day to appreciate the true beauty of the Stockholm Archipelago. Be out on deck for the best views as your ship navigates the rocky islands and islets.
Scenic Discoveries – the Kiel Canal
The Kiel Canal spans 98 kilometres, cutting through the picturesque German countryside as it links the North Sea to the Baltic Sea. The slow sailing along the canal offers the opportunity to relax on deck as you sail under low bridges and pass interesting villages and towns that flank the still waters.
The enchanting medieval town of Visby, located on the Swedish island of Gotland, is famed for its well-preserved medieval city wall, which still has many of its original towers intact. Originally built as protection for the town against foreign enemies, the wall encircles the city which is now a UNECO World Heritage Site.
"The Scandinavian cities were great to visit and the ship is large enough to have space, but not overwhelming".
Mr Carter, Scandinavian City Break - Feefo Independent Review
