Things to do

A Baltic cruise is an exploration in itself, from the breath-taking views that pass to the enchanting cities the ship calls at. However, this part of the world needs to be explored further and there is an extensive range of excursions to help you do this.

  • St Petersburg City Tour – A city that desires to be explored, St Petersburg is home to breath-taking architecture, mesmerizing canals and enchanting alley-ways lined with local markets. An organised tour is a great way to see all of what this intriguing city has to offer.
  • Ice Bar, Stockholm – Step into a mysterious bar where everything from the walls to the drinking glasses are made of ice. With a temperature of -5°c, you are wrapped in a thermal coat as you enter this enchanted wonderland.
  • Vigeland Sculpture Park, Oslo – Home to over 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and cast iron, Vigeland Sculpture Park is one of Norway’s most visited attractions. Featuring the work of famous sculptor Gustav Vigeland, you will be stunned by these unimaginable creations.


The Baltic regions are famous for their awe-inspiring views that burst with colour and change dramatically with the seasons. From the radiant forests that come to life in Autumn to the crisp frostiness of the winter, the weather of this area has a strong influence of when to visit.

From November to March the winter months will see these areas experience an average temperature of -1°c with frosts and snow spells.

The summer months between May and August will see the highest temperatures with an average of 15°c. Although it is not a sun-bathing type of destination, the mild summers attract days of clear blue skies and perfect temperatures for exploring.
