Hiking, cycling cruises to go on sale


Unique active cruises to sail out of Stockholm
Birka Cruises and tour operator Tema are expanding their collaboration with another new form of travel from Sweden, hiking cruises, which go on sale from tomorrow. Next summer they will organise three hiking cruises to Sweden’s High Coast (Höga Kusten) on the Gulf of Bothnia and a cycle cruise to Copenhagen.
Birka and TEMA began working together by operating cycle cruises to Copenhagen, Bornholm and Gotland in summer 2016. Next summer, cruises with more active breaks hiking and cycling will sail north from Stockholm to the High Coast, Härnösand and Lulea.
“An active holiday in nature doesn’t mean sleeping, dry food and Trangia portable stoves. Along with TEMA, we have created another new multipurpose trip from Sweden for the active who want the luxury of good food and comfortable accommodation”, says Marcus Hammarström, head of marketing at Birka Cruises.
“It’s also perfectly acceptable to share a cabin with a travelling companion who doesn’t want to hike or bike.”
The hiking trips are being organised for June, with three-day cruises from the Swedish capital. TEMA deploys a tour guide who is with the group throughout the trip.
Hiking cruises are priced at SEK 7100 (€729) per person including full board, with four-day cycle cruises to Copenhagen, Bornholm and Gotland costing SEK 8600.
