Your tour from Voss starts by traveling by bus, beginning within a very short walk from your hotel, through charming villages and scenic nature landscapes, towards Gudvangen.

After your fjord cruise you arrive in the small village of Flåm, nestled in the innermost part of the Aurlandsfjord, where your tour continues by taking the legendary Flåm Railway.

A spectacular day not to forget! On arrival, make the short distance to your hotel for your overnight stay.

Day 7: Oslo (B)

Today is a full day to explore the Norwegian capital at your own pace. After breakfast take a Hop on – Hop off tour. Oslo is an easy-going city where history meets modernity. It boasts world-class museums, a lively nightlife and plenty of outdoor activities as many locals are keen hikers, skiers or sailors. You’ll get a chance to see the Royal Palace, Karl Johansgate, Parliament, the opera as well as the Viking Ship museum as well as Thor Heyerdahls. Kontiki Musuem. 

Day 8: Oslo – train-icon– Stockholm (B)

Today, make your way to Oslo’s main train station and board your train towards Sweden and Stockholm. The train will take you straight east through the Norwegian and Swedish countryside. Once in Stockholm, make your own way to the hotel. Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, encompasses 14 islands and more than 50 bridges on an extensive Baltic Sea archipelago. The cobblestone streets and ochre-colored buildings of Gamla Stan (the old town) are home to the 13th-century Storkyrkan Cathedral, the Kungliga Slottet (the Royal Palace) and the Nobel Museum, which focuses on the Nobel Prize.

Day 9: Stockholm (B,D) cruise-icon

In the morning, enjoy a guided sightseeing tour of Stockholm’s city centre. Aboard a comfortable coach, tour the city’s highlights like Stadshuset (City Hall), the island of Djurgården, the Vasa Museum and Kungliga Slottet (the Royal Palace). Then hop on to a canal boat to cruise around the city’s scenic archipelago and end with a fantastic photo opportunity of the coastal city’s skyline. At the appropriate time, make your way to the port to board your cruise.

Day 10: At Sea (B,L,D) cruise-icon

Enjoy the day at sea on your deluxe ship as it makes its way towards the Swedish coast.

Day 11: Visby (B,L,D) cruise-icon

Step into the Middle Ages in this exquisitely preserved walled town of old churches, colourful homes and charming shops and cafés. Outside Visby there are sandy beaches, quaint villages, Viking heritage and mysterious monuments. The impressive 13th-century wall is the best-preserved city wall in Northern Europe.

Day 12: Tallinn (B,L,D) cruise-icon

Tallinn, Estonia’s compact, buzzing capital, with its enchanting heart surrounded by medieval walls, has been shaped by nearly a millennium of outside influence. While here, explore the heart of Tallinn, its Old Town, still largely enclosed by the city’s medieval walls. At its centre is the Raekoja plats, the historic marketplace, above which looms Toompea, the hilltop stronghold of the German knights who controlled the city during the Middle Ages. Raekoja plats, the cobbled market square at the heart of the Old Town, is as old as the city itself. On its southern side stands the fifteenth-century Town Hall (Raekoda), boasting elegant Gothic arches at ground level and a delicate steeple at its northern end.

Day 13: St. Petersburg (B,L,D) cruise-icon

Welcome to one of the great cities of the world, St. Petersburg, Russia! A sophisticated capital of the tsarist Empire, the cradle of the Communist Revolution of 1917 and a symbol of Russian stoicism due to the city’s heroic endurance of a three-year Nazi siege during World War II. Present-day St. Petersburg has eased into modernity without sacrificing any of its old-world magnificence and charm, with shopping malls sitting alongside opulent palaces.

Day 14: St. Petersburg (B,L,D) cruise-icon

Spend another full day exploring the elaborate palaces, grand churches, sumptuous estates and gilded façades of St. Petersburg.

Day 15: Helsinki (B,L,D) cruise-icon

Instantly loveable, Helsinki is remarkably different from the other Scandinavian capitals and closer both in mood and appearance to the major cities of Northern Europe. Today cruisers will find a youthful buzz on the streets, where the boulevards, outdoor cafés and trendy restaurants are crowded with Finns taking full advantage of the short summer. Following a devastating fire in 1808 and the city’s designation as Finland’s capital in 1812, Helsinki was totally rebuilt in a style befitting its new status: a grid of wide streets and Neoclassical brick buildings modelled on the then Russian capital, St Petersburg. Its narrow-cobbled streets, lined by small colourful wooden buildings, give a sense of Finnish life before the capital’s bold squares and Neoclassical geometry. The old town is built around the hill on the other side of Mannerheimkatu, crowned by the fifteenth-century Tuomiokirkko, where Alexander I proclaimed Finland a Russian Grand Duchy and convened the first Finnish Diet.

Day 16: Stockholm –airplane-takeoff– New Zealand (B) 

Water and green space are never far away in the stylish Swedish capital, built on 14 islands with acres of parks. But don’t miss the medieval Old Town, whose narrowing streets are lined with unique shops, art galleries and cafés. We suggest you visit Vasa, the world’s oldest preserved ship! At the appropriate time, make your own way to the airport for your flight back to New Zealand.

Day 17: New Zealand

Arrive home today.
