Route 2022/2023

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. 

Route

After leaving Gothenburg 8 June 2022, Götheborg will sail in Northern Europe and the Baltic Sea, then across the North Sea and pass through the English Channel and past the Bay of Biscay. We will dock at a number of ports in the Mediterranean and stay in the Mediterranean 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!
