Explore northern Europe and Scandinavia with Fred Olsen cruises

If you've never experienced the Baltic region, be prepared for a visual and cultural feast - there are so many magnificent sights to take in!

A typical voyage from the UK goes across the North Sea to countries including Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Germany, to Latvia, Estonia and Russia.

Fred Olsen cruises offer an excellent range of Baltic trips with more than 20 tours available throughout 2011 alone.

One of the travel company's summertime voyages is the Stockholm, Tallinn and St Petersburg trip, running from July 30 until August 11. This 14-day trip is described as a 'Cruise and Walk holiday', with plenty of sightseeing at each port of call. Embarking at Dover, the elegant Black Watch will take you to Copenhagen, Stockholm, Tallinn, St Petersburg, Sassnitz and Arhus before retuning to the UK. Excursion options include a trip to Stockholm's Ice Bar, where the walls, tables and drinking glasses are made of ice, a Viking exhibition, wildlife treasures of Estonia, an evening at the ballet in St Petersburg and a Hanomag jeep tour of Sassnitz, Germany. Prices start at £1,212 per person based on two people sharing and tours are extra.

If you're looking for a Fred Olsen cruise in late summer, the St Petersburg and the Baltic voyage departs from Southampton aboard the grand liner Balmoral on August 18. This 15-day cruise travels to Estonia, Finland, Russia and Denmark. Optional trips include highlights of Tallinn, a Helsinki city tour, Catherine Palace and Park, St Petersburg, Louisiana Modern Art Museum, Copenhagen, and a stop in Aalborg. Prices start at £1,423 per person based on two people sharing, excluding tours.
