Archipelagos, dramatic fjords and bustling seaside towns await you on this unique expedition cruise to a less-visited region of southern Scandinavia. On this voyage we showcase nature’s scenic masterpieces against modern-day engineering triumphs, where sand dunes, rocky shorelines, fjords, waterfalls and majestic cliffs overshadow man’s architectural and navigational feats. We will transit the impressive Kiel Canal and sail through the “inside passage” of Sweden, sailing past numerous islands and islets. We visit charming fishing villages, bustling summer marinas, National parks and a marine biosphere, as well as a big city brimming with culture. A wonderful itinerary that embraces diversity and the beauty of this remote area. During this voyage we invite you to explore the areas we visit on foot, by kayak or with our fleet of small expedition boats. Our knowledgeable and friendly Expedition team will delight in bringing you closer to nature, sharing experiences and making this an unforgettable voyage.
