Azorcan Ringette Tour - Canada Stars

Proposed dates: July 27 to August 8, 2025 - Sweden, Finland, Estonia & Czechia

 

Tour Brochure - The tour brochure includes a day by day itinerary, tour inclusions and pricing details.

The Canada Stars will depart from Edmonton for Sweden and will stay in Stockholm enjoying a city tour, the Vasa ship museum and a visit to the Drottningholm palace. They will play an exhibition game against Sweden Ringette and have are time to enjoy the city or some of its famous attractions like the Skansen, the Grona Lund Amusement Park, the ABBA Museum, the Viking Museum or the Avicci Experience.

A tour highlight for many will be the overnight cruise from Stockholm to Helsinki which includes the great buffet dinner and buffet breakfast plus onboard shopping and entertainment.

In Helsinki the group will enjoy a city tour, a tour of the Suomenlinna Island Fortress while playing an exhibition game and participating in the Finland Ringette Lions Cup. We include an opportunity to enjoy a Finnish sauna and lake experience.

The day trip to Tallinn includes a short two hour return ferry ride across the Gulf of Finland. A local guide will meet you for a walking tour of the Old Town, then you will have free time to explore and shop the medieval city centre before returning to the ferry terminal.

A short flight from Helsinki will take you to Prague, one of Europe's greatest cities to visit. In the Czech capital you will enjoy a guided walking tour from the expansive Prague Castle, across the Charles Bridge and into to the medieval old town square.

That evening you will have a dinner cruise on the Vltava river to get a great perspective of the city's architecture and riverbanks.

On the second day in Czech the group will travel north from Prague to Terezin for a somber visit to a military fortress which became a concentration camp during WWII. A final ringette game versus Czech Ringette rounds off the sporting aspect of the tour. Your final day in Prague is free for you to explore the city and Azorcan's guide in the destination links section has a multitude of options for you to spend your day. In the evening the tour's farewell dinner is at a medieval restaurant in the old town. Enjoy the food, included drinks and the entertainment.

Contact the team coach or manager to reserve your spot on this "once in a lifetime" ringette and cultural experience.
