A Baltic Sea cruise takes you to the three varied countries of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Not immediately recognisable by name or on the map by most, this trio of northern European outposts are home to unspoilt wildernesses and fun and fascinating cities, easily explored on one of our Baltic cruises. The mystery of these places means fewer crowds and therefore a more enjoyable time exploring these countries and their hidden treasures, such as Riga’s castles and art scene, Estonia’s rural idylls and Tallinn’s medieval architecture and forbidding fortresses. Though these three countries alone makeup the official Baltics, most Baltic cruises call or start at the atmospheric capital of Denmark, Copenhagen, with its dreamy spires, Oslo in Norway or Russia’s romantic St Petersburg, with its Venetian-like network of canals. Cruise holidays to this stunningly beautiful and immensely interesting corner of Europe are rewarding and illuminating; why not give the Baltics a try?
