    Monday - Jul 8, 2024
    • Ekenas Archipelago National Park, Finland
    Hundreds of rocky, windswept islands dot Finland's coast. We will pause in the Ekenas Archipelago National Park and explore its many islands, harbors, and inlets by Zodiac and kayak. These islands are a habitat for white-tailed eagles, nesting waterfowl, and gulls, among other avian species. (B,L,D)
    Tuesday - Jul 9, 2024
    • Mariehamn, Finland
    Discover a fascinating autonomous region today, Finland's Aland Islands where most residents speak Swedish. Spend the day in the capital of this 6,700-island archipelago, Mariehamn, with options to delve into the islands' rich seafaring history with museum visits or to explore by foot, bike, or Zodiac. Museum options include the Pommern, a four-masted bark that was donated to the city after World War II, and the Mariehamn Maritime Museum. Other opportunities to explore by land include hiking or biking a shoreline trail. Another option is to travel by Zodiac out of the Mariehamn harbor to the islands' historic pilot station. Called Kobba Klintar, it's a scenic spot where you can see the 1862 house of pilots who have helped countless captains navigate this tricky harbor over the years. This evening, enjoy the quaint downtown of Mariehamn-known as "the town of the thousand Linden trees"-at your leisure since the ship will be docked here overnight. (B,L,D) ...

    Sail among the serene islands of Sweden, past the 18th-century circular Fredriksborg Fortress and into the capital's port. Stockholm is spread over 14 islands, and an overnight docking allows freedom to experience this magical city at night with the lights of harborside restaurants reflecting on the water. The morning brings the opportunity to discover the city's cultural treasures: At the Vasa Museum, see the eponymous well-preserved 17th-century wooden warship; and on a walking tour of the city's Old Town, learn about the country's monarchy at the Royal Armory through displays of regal clothing, jewelry, and carriages. Choose to visit Fotografiska, the museum of photography that has exhibited legends like Annie Leibovitz, or the Millesgarden, a spectacular sculpture garden built on terraces on the island of Lidingo. Before the end of the day, enjoy a local music performance curated by the onboard ethnomusicologist Jacob Edgar. (B,L,D) ...

Outside Visby, the island has more than 150 nature reserves, sea stacks in the wild and windswept northern part of the island, and flower-filled meadows, shipwrecks, and beaches in the south.
