On a wind-whipped day in Visby, Sweden our guests aboard National Geographic Explorer took a bike ride outside of the city, through the woods, and along the coast to the sheer limestone cliffs looking out along the west side of Gotland. The cultural expedition visits all nine countries that boarder the Baltic Sea. And next year’s expedition among all countries bordering the Baltic Sea will prove to be even more epic in scope. A single departure, it is a circumnavigation over 16 days.
