Cruise the Baltic Sea and visit the maritime metropolises of Stockholm, Helsinki and Tallinn!

On the Baltic Sea Christmas Markets Cruise, you will arrive each day in a new Baltic Sea capital. While the sun may be reluctant to rise, you will be ready to get off the boat and explore each of these cities and sample their unique holiday traditions and Christmas markets. Guided tours in Stockholm, Helsinki and Tallinn will familiarize you with each city and an overnight in each city will also provide you with free time for additional explorations or shopping. Sample a traditional Smörgåsbord in Stockholm, taste smoked elk and reindeer in Helsinki, and brave black pudding and beetroot salad in Tallinn.

Christmas only comes once a year and seating is limited. Even Santa Claus himself will not be able to get you a space on the Baltic Sea Christmas Markets Cruise once they are gone. Download your reservation form and reserve your space with Kaiserslautern Outdoor Recreation today.
