Four Capitals by Trains and Ferries
Explore the Scandinavian capitals independently. For our clients who want to explore Scandinavia on their own with no set departure dates !
Day 1 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 UNESCOâ€™s World Heritage List, as a unique monument to European military
architecture. Accommodation at 3 star+ hotel in Helsinki, centrally located

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.

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 worldâ€™s leading cycle cities. We recommend a visit to the Tivoli Gardens (not open all
