Fred. Olsen – Scandinavian Islands of the Baltic with Stockholm – 2019
Sails from Dover
Cruise Scandinavian Islands
There’s no doubt cruising with Fred. Olsen is the best way to uncover the Scandinavian Islands of the Baltic and Stockholm.
After gliding through the charming German countryside along the Kiel Transit Canal, you’ll arrive at the first port of call, Rønne. The Danish town on the small rocky island of Bornholm offers historical charm with its cobblestoned streets and cross-timbered houses.
Then onward to Sweden where you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time as you discover well-preserved ruins, beautiful buildings, stunning landscapes and plenty of fresh air in Visby and the capital Stockholm.
Next you will reach the halfway point between Finland and Sweden, Mariehamn. It’s the capital of the Åland Islands, a breath-taking amalgam of nearly 7000 islands.
Finally, your journey concludes in Copenhagen which has something for everyone. Discover Nyhavn, the city’s famous and picturesque port or visit Christiansborg Palace. Also, not to be missed is a visit to the traditional and dreamlike Tivoli Gardens, the second-oldest theme park in the world.

With its harbour, Rønne is Bornholm’s centre of trade and culture, and home to the fortress ruins of Hammerhus and the island’s distinctive round churches. Although large amounts of the town were destroyed during the war, it was rebuilt during the post war years, and many buildings look older than they actually are.

Explore the beautiful Botanical Gardens; admire the tri-towered St. Mary’s Cathedral; or venture to the quaint fishing village of Lickershamn, where you can savour Gotland’s tallest sea stack, Jungfrun (‘The Maiden’).
