Day 6 - Cruising Stockholm Archipelago - Stockholm, Sweden (overnight)
This morning we enjoy a short scenic cruise through the vast Stockholm Archipelago, consisting of 30,000 islands, each with their own unique characters, before arriving at Sweden’s capital city, Stockholm, where we spend the night. The city’s Old Town, Gamla Stan, is a delight of narrow streets, cobbled squares and medieval houses, and there’s an enticing choice of museums, including the wonderful Vasa Museum, which house a remarkably well-preserved 17th century warship. Also worth visiting is the unique Skansen open air museum, with its collection of historic buildings, and the baroque Royal Palace. Ship to shore tender service.

Perhaps visit the National Gallery where you’ll come face-to-face with The Scream, created by the Expressionist artist Edvard Munch in 1893, or explore Norway’s proud Viking past in the Viking Ship Museum, which houses three wooden ships dating back to the 9th century.
