From the Baltic Sea to the North Sea on Le Champlain
Embark on a brand-new 11-night cruise aboard Le Champlain, sailing between the Baltic Sea and the North Sea to discover Northern Europe and its emblematic cities.
From Copenhagen, you will first set a course for Karlskrona. This city, whose history is intrinsically linked to the Swedish Navy, boasts exceptional UNESCO-listed architecture that is characteristic of late-17th-century European naval cities.
Le Champlain will then sail to the swedish island of Gotland and call at Visby, a site that was important for the Hanseatic League in the Baltic Sea around the 13th century. UNESCO Heritage Site, this once opulent city still has remarkably well-preserved ramparts, public buildings, merchant houses and warehouses.
You will also discover Riga, capital of Latvia. A unique blend of different architectural styles, the old town will open itself up to you like the pages of a history book.
Further south, Klaipeda, formerly known as Memel, the main port town in Lithuania, is separated only by a narrow channel from the Curonian Spit, a UNESCO Heritage.
Your ship will call at Gdansk, famous for its amber stone and its shipyards, before reaching the charming town of Ronne, on the small Danish island of Bornholm, which is greatly appreciated by the Danish for its variety of landscapes ranging from granite to great sandy beaches.
After calling at the seaside resort of Travemünde, a favourite destination of travellers since the 19th century due to its kilometres of beach and its charming fishing port, Le Champlain will sail towards the Danish capital, Copenhagen.
On the final leg of your trip you will call at Gothenburg, in Sweden. The country’s main port, the city can be discovered via its pretty canals, cultural treasures and emblematic districts.
Your cruise will end in Oslo, the Norwegian capital, a city with a unique energy.
