First time in Lisbon

For the first time ever we are excited to visit Portugal and Lisbon. As the eight stopover on the Asia Expedition and the first in Southern Europe, we're looking forward to beautiful days in the Portugese capital. 

Sail with us to Lisbon

You can be part of the unique adventure of sailing as a deckhand on board Götheborg. You will experience life on board a 18th century ship and make friends for life. As a deckhand you sail together with the professional crew, are not required to have any sailing experience and will get training on board. Read more about the sailing leg to Lisbon below.

The Biscayan Adventure

Sail with us from Bremerhaven to Lisbon as a deckhand! This will be the longest passage of all our European legs – and easily the toughest one, too. Naming it the Biscayan Adventure is no exaggeration, for adventurous it will be, just as it will be fun and include some really great sailing.

Sailing here is on many people’s bucket lists. Is it on yours? Signing up for this leg will give you a most varied experience of challenging sailing, beautiful summer days on the Atlantic, and ocean wildlife spotting.

Visit us in Lisbon

Come on board and visit the ship! Learn about the history of the East India Companies and the adventures of the original Götheborg that sailed three times to Asia. Hear modern tales of sailing an 18th century ship, and about the exciting expedition to Asia. Feel the authentic atmosphere, including the smell of tar, and listen to everything from captivating stories, to the tremendous art of shipbuilding.
