Day 1 Stockholm, Sweden

Sweden’s capital is one of the most picturesque major cities in the world. Part of an archipelago consisting of about 24,000 rocky islands, Stockholm delivers a vision of spice-colored buildings rising between vibrantly blue-toned waters and skies during the brief summer, then illuminated by the inviting glow of lights above a blanket of snow in winter. Renowned for its progressive nature in every aspect, Stockholm offers cutting-edge minimalist design, trendy fashions and a world-class club scene. The Södermalm neighborhood is distinguished by high waterfront hills graced by charming old homes, with main streets lined with unique shops, art galleries and nightclubs. The city’s center district is a bustling metropolis with boutiques and restaurants the equal of any on the continent.

Day 2 Mariehamn, Finland

This port-of-call is popular during the peak travel season, offering visitors postcard-perfect marinas populated by gleaming sailboats. Built on a peninsula, this lovely archipelago is the largest settlement in the Aland Republic. Mariehamn was founded by Tsar Alexander II in 1861, when Aland and Finland formed part of the Russian Empire, to help support the Empire’s maritime needs. The town is defined by elegant wooden homes spread out along wide tree-lined streets. A distinctive feature is the Esplanade, an avenue of stately trees stretching from west to east, from harbor to harbor. Most points of interest are marine-oriented, such as the Aland Maritime Museum and Maritime Quarter. The Aland Museum features historic exhibits, while the Aland Art Museum highlights the work of regional artists.

Day 3 At Sea

Explore your luxurious small-ship and enjoy the numerous on board amenities.

Day 4-5 St Petersburg, Russia

Russia’s gilded “Window to the West” planned by Peter the Great as a progressive city the equal of any in Europe continues to exceed the expectations of its visionary founder. Combining its fascinating Russian heritage with a distinctly European outlook, St. Petersburg has emerged from the long Soviet era (and its renaming as Leningrad) to recapture its grandeur and claim its place as a thriving, relevant world city. Almost every street welcomes visitors to discover a wealth of history and culture. Touring the major attractions – The Winter Palace, the Hermitage, and Peter and Paul Fortress – will surely provide defining moments in your life. The enticing cafes, restaurants and shops testify to the city’s re-invigoration. Nature itself offers such unique wonders as the famous White Nights, the long summer days when the sun barely dips below the horizon.

Day 6 Helsinki, Finland

Stretching along the Gulf of Finland along the Baltic Sea, Helsinki is a quintessential sea-town. The coastline’s wondrously irregular geography offers numerous bays, inlets and a sprinkling of unspoiled islands. So defined by water is the city, that the harbor is the centerpiece of its urban environment. Watching the massive ferries make port is among the elemental Helsinki experiences that travelers commit to memory as well as video camera. Elegantly integrated into this unique backdrop are exquisite Art Nouveau buildings, museums, restaurants and cafes always brimming with both locals and travelers. Finland was governed by Russia until 1919, and reminders of the Czars' influence are found throughout Helsinki – from the Russian Orthodox Cathedral near the harbor to the fortress on Suomenlinna Island, recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Other places of special interest include Senate Square, Market Square and central shopping district Aleksanterinkatu.

Day 7 Tallinn, Estonia

As one of Europe’s most captivating cities, Tallinn is a stimulating mixture of medieval and contemporary – often coexisting in the same urban space. The spires of 14th-century churches set on narrow cobblestone streets rise above decidedly fashion-forward cafes, restaurants and shops located within the stone walls of structures largely unchanged since the middle ages. The Old Town medieval city center isn’t merely well-preserved – it’s a thriving district of continuing importance to Tallinn. The longest Old Town street is Pikk, the location of impressive guild houses, St. Olav's Church and other architectural treasures. In 2011, Tallinn proudly assumes its role as European Capital of Culture, giving the city a chance to showcase the best of its creative spirit to the rest of the world. Beyond the medieval district, travelers can visit Peter the Great's baroque masterpiece Kadriorg Palace, or head to Pirita or Väna-Jõesuu to enjoy beach culture.

Day 8 Sandhamn, Sweden

Experienced travelers who despair of being jostled by mere tourists may be permitted their feelings of superiority and relief upon arrival on this peaceful island. Here, one can experience the remarkable maritime terrain of the outer archipelago. Sandhamn is the primary meeting place for sailors and yachters, with a vibrant party scene during summer. Decidedly off the mass-holidaymakers path, this idyllic village offers opportunities for discovery at every turn: narrow alleys, cottages in shades of rust red, and a historical sea pilot station. The classic Royal Swedish Yacht Club could be just at home in the Hamptons, while numerous restaurants and bars cater to yacht-culture patrons.

Day 9 Stockholm, Sweden

Sweden’s capital is one of the most picturesque major cities in the world. Part of an archipelago consisting of about 24,000 rocky islands, Stockholm delivers a vision of spice-colored buildings rising between vibrantly blue-toned waters and skies during the brief summer, then illuminated by the inviting glow of lights above a blanket of snow in winter. Renowned for its progressive nature in every aspect, Stockholm offers cutting-edge minimalist design, trendy fashions and a world-class club scene. The Södermalm neighborhood is distinguished by high waterfront hills graced by charming old homes, with main streets lined with unique shops, art galleries and nightclubs. The city’s center district is a bustling metropolis with boutiques and restaurants the equal of any on the continent.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
