Cruising to Sweden, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Finland

With Ambassador Steven Pifer

About this Tour

The height of summer, when sunlight extends into the evening hours and temperatures are mild, is the ideal time to explore the nations bordering the Baltic Sea. On this journey, we’ll have the good fortune to visit five of these nations aboard the all-suite, 118-passenger Hebridean Sky. The scope of the experience will be grand, from the stylish capital cities Stockholm and Helsinki to the quaint islands of Gotland, Saaremaa, and the Åland archipelago, with port calls to see marvelously untouched medieval quarters in Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia. Along the way, we will experience privately arranged concerts, meals, and events to celebrate this unique corner of the world’s heritage.  A robust educational program rounds out this fascinating journey, including Steven Pifer, former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, and Russian literature expert Ilya Vinitsky, each offering a series of lectures and discussions along the way. Additional guest speakers will offer their perspectives on current affairs and this pivotal moment with Russia. This voyage is a rare opportunity to see and learn more about this complicated region as history unfolds there under a global microscope.

From $7,990 per person plus airfare.
