It’s fortunate that geography placed Scandinavia and the Baltic States so close together. Nowhere else in Europe can you travel so quickly from the old to the new. From the storybook towers and goblin-haunted forests in Latvia and Estonia to eco-cities, bike culture and minimalism in Denmark, Sweden and Finland. It’s classic Old and New Europe, side by side. And this 22-day tour has been designed to showcase the best of both. Starting in Helsinki, we’ll wind our way through old centres like Talinn, Riga and Vilnius before moving through Poland, Germany and Denmark on our way to the dark and windswept waters of the Norwegian Fjordlands.
