In a region that was once the site of a vast empire, the Baltic States of Latvia and Estonia have emerged, rivalling one another for their charm and elegance. Today they proclaim their membership of the Western world, but that does not mean they deny the strong Russian influences of their heritage.
Aboard one of our ships, we invite you to discover the unique atmosphere of the Nordic capitals, visiting Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark and Russia, architectural treasures and open-air museums, with a unique atmosphere. The itinerary also takes in St Petersburg, the city of the Tsars, nestled on the banks of the Neva River, as well as London, the most cosmopolitan of European Capitals, the theatre for new trends and a brand new port of call for PONANT.
Further north, you will follow in the footsteps of the ancient Vikings along the coast of Norway with its lakes and glaciers forming natural pockets of paradise. You will enter the land of fjords, and their extraordinary landscape made of lush green valleys whose snow-capped summits proudly reach for the sky, and silverflecked waterfalls tumbling down granite cliffs.
