The Baltic on a budget

Northern Europe may not have the reputation of being the cheapest holiday destination, however, there are plenty activities which are free of charge or suitable for small budgets.


Free walking tours
Many of the Cruise Baltic destinations have free walking tours which give you the opportunity to learn about the cities’ history and main attractions. The guides are not paid so a tip is expected at the end of the tour.

The tours are, for instance, available in Helsinki, Oslo, Malmö, Stockholm, Gdansk, Tallinn, and Copenhagen.

Art, fountains, parks, open air swimming pools – Aalborg has a lot of free or cheap activities to offer.
