Heading out once again

Asia Expedition 2022/2023

Götheborg of Sweden is the world's largest ocean-going wooden sailing ship, and she will create great attention wherever she goes. We are now on a great expedition to Asia! During a two year adventure, we are sailing in Europe in 2022 and will continue to Asia in 2023.

We're in Canary Wharf, London

We are now moored at Thames Quay in South Dock in Canary Wharf, London. We are open to visitors every day of the stopover, 8-12 August. 

Thank you everyone who came and greeted us as we passed under Tower Bridge on our arrival to London!
