SeaDream Yacht Club Zeroes In on Northern Europe for Summer 2014

SeaDream Yacht Club is expanding its destination offerings with yachting experiences in the Baltic and Norwegian Fjords for the Summer 2014 season. 

The SeaDream I will explore the summer yachting ports of Northern Europe including overnight stays in cities with exclusive berthing privileges afforded to only a mega-yacht. Guests will dock up the Neva River by the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Stockholm’s historic Gamla Stan and anchoring steps from Tallin, Estonia’s “Old Town” in the inner pond. SeaDream Yacht Club offers guests a perfect chance to experience the region in ultimate comfort and style from June through August 2014 on seven to 14-day voyages. 

Starting the season with a sailing from Hamburg, Germany on May 31, 2014, SeaDream I will sail through the Kiel Canal, calling on the metropolitan destinations of Helsinki, St. Petersburg and Stockholm. In contrast, the voyage also includes the picturesque island of Saaremaa in Estonia and Finland’s Aland Islands, an archipelago of some 6,000 remote islands. 

Highlights of Northern European voyages include:

·         Multiple night stays in St. Petersburg, Russia. Guests may witness a private opening of the world’s largest museum of art, The Hermitage, or a behind-the-scenes look at Russia’s famous Jacobson Ballet School. Enthralling tours of the Neva River and its canals allow a vantage point from which to view St. Petersburg’s architecture.

·         Discovering the city of Mariehamn in the Aland Islands of Finland. A private evening aboard the Pommern, a tall ship museum, has been arranged for guests to enjoy a Champagne tasting while engaging one-on-one with the diving team that discovered the world’s oldest Champagne bottles at a wreck site near the coast.

·         Exploring the Norwegian Fjords up close, visiting hidden coves accessible only by small craft or mega-yacht. Overnights in Hardangerfjord and Sognefjord, Norway.

·         Exclusive complimentary land excursion in Oslo to Hadeland Glassworks factory, owned by SeaDream founder Atle Brynestad.   

·         Experience the Midnight Sun, when nightfall is twilight instead of darkness and daytime activities are possible round the clock.

·         Outdoor activities including paddling through fjords in kayaks directly launched from the SeaDream I marina. Guests can also use the yacht’s fleet of mountain bikes or hike trails on secluded islands in the region.   

Fully inclusive yachting fares begin at $4,499, based on double occupancy. The SeaDream I will be sailing a series of voyages in Northern Europe starting May 31 through August 2014. Itineraries include Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Norway, Poland, Russia and Sweden.
