For a more sophisticated slice of urban finesse, medieval Copenhagen is arguably the most thrilling yacht charter base in Scandinavia. If true nautical flavour is what you’re after, Sweden’s capital is well placed, with the Baltic on one side and island-rich Lake Malaren on the other. When embarking on an expedition on the Baltic sea, many guests take in Hamburg. The beaches are dotted with beach basket chairs, resembling a scene from the 19th century. Visit the restored aristocratic estate, Weissenhaus Grand Village Resort, and dine at the Michelin star restaurant after a day relaxing at the spa.
