Instead of heading straight from Nice to Valletta as planned, the route has been changed and the ship is now also making a short stopover in Monaco. However, it is not just a regular stopover: It will include the spectacular delivery of a 2.4-meter-high elephant sculpture to H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco.
A two year adventure
The expedition to East Asia will last for nearly one and a half years and is dependent on mother nature and natural forces such as wind and currents.
After leaving Gothenburg 8 June 2022, Götheborg is sailing in Northern Europe and the Baltic Sea, then across the North Sea, through the English Channel and past the Bay of Biscay. We are docking at a number of ports in the Mediterranean and staying in Barcelona during winter 2022/2023.
Spring 2023 we will enter the Suez Canal, and head towards the Red Sea and Djibouti. After crossing the Indian Ocean, the ship will arrive in India. 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.
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!
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.
