Expedition 2022

Heading out once again

In April 2022, Götheborg of Sweden will head out on an East Asian expedition, preceded by a trip to Stockholm in August 2021. In the same vein as in our history, the mission is to promote Swedish-Asian trade and create new business opportunities.

For our next expedition, we are putting innovations for a better world on display. We will create a commitment to the greatest challenge of our times – the adaptation to a sustainable future.

First stop: Stockholm 26 August - 4 September

Götheborg of Sweden is the world’s largest wooden ocean-going sailing ship, and we look forward to the unique sailing expedition to Asia in 2022. The trip to Stockholm in August 2021 was the first stop on that adventure! 

An expedition with a mission

The expedition will promote and open new trade opportunities for Swedish and Asian companies alike.

International trade can also have positive effects on all three dimensions of sustainability; economic, social, and environmental. The expedition’s aim is to bring forward innovations as an important and necessary part of the solution towards our vision of creating a sustainable future. 

Route

The expedition to East Asia will last for more than seven months and is dependent on mother nature and natural forces such as wind and currents. 

After leaving Sweden in April 2022, Götheborg of Sweden will sail around Denmark, across the North Sea and pass through the English Channel and past the Bay of Biscay. The intent is to make two stops before we enter the Mediterranean in May. We will dock at two more spots in the Mediterranean before we enter the Suez Canal, at the beginning of June.

Then we head towards the Red Sea and Djibouti. After crossing the Indian Ocean, the ship will arrive in India in late July. In India, our East Asia Tour begins and Götheborg with crew will now be heading towards the major markets Singapore, Vietnam, Hong Kong and finally China. Join our journey and open new possibilities along the route!

The planning and work to confirm and finalise the stopovers and ports that Götheborg will dock at is an ongoing work. We will share the news with all of you underway!
