Join us on the longest and most adventurous of the European sailing legs. Fifteen days of sailing, crossing the Bay of Biscay as we head south towards Lisbon and later the Mediterranean. A sail to cross off the bucket list!
In 2022, Götheborg of Sweden will head out on a new adventure and expedition to Asia during 2022 and 2023. Read our latest news here and scroll down to the bottom of this page to sign up for our newsletter.
In September, Götheborg will sail to Lisbon, Portugal. It is the first time that the ship visits Portugal. Götheborg will be in Lisbon 5–8 September 2022 and will be moored at the central location of Cais Rocha Conde de Óbidos. The ship will be open to visitors during its stay. Welcome on board!
We have now been at the shipyard for a number of weeks in order to get ready for the Asia Expedition. We've had sunshine, rain and snowstorms during our time at Gotenius, but now it's time to head back to Pier 4 at Eriksberg in Gothenburg. Let us tell you all about it.
As we announce that the ship is coming to Copenhagen and Oslo in July, we are also really excited to release three more sailing legs at the same time: Stockholm to Copenhagen, Copenhagen to Oslo and Oslo to London. Are you ready to join us?
In July we're coming to Copenhagen and Oslo! They are the two final stops in the Nordic countries before the ship heads towards the rest of Europe on the great Asia Expedition 2022/2023. We will be in Copenhagen 20–24 July and in Oslo 28–31 July 2022.
The third leg of the expedition, Helsinki to Stockholm, will be nine days of sailing! While the linear distance in itself may be limited, this is actually one of the more extensive legs. There will be plenty of open sea, or in other words a lot of sailing. We will follow the winds and set as many sails as possible, which is an experience in itself.
The second leg of the Asia Expedition 2022/2023 is between the Swedish city of Helsingborg and the Finish capital, Helsinki. This leg of the expedition will be six days of sailing, and what six days it will be. The Baltic Sea in summer is magical! The sun hardly sets before it’s on the rise again, in colours so grand it’s breathtaking – a timeless experience that Northern seafarers share across the millenniums.
In June, right in time for Midsummer, we are coming to Helsinki! Today we are excited to announce that Finland and Helsinki will be the second stop on the Asia Expedition 2022/2023. The ship will be in Helsinki 23–27 June 2022, and will be moored at Makasiini Quay, right at the heart of the city.
Yesterday Götheborg left Pir 4 at Eriksberg and headed for the shipyard Gotenius at Ringön, where she will be during the next three to four weeks. On her way to the shipyard, Götheborg also passed under the new bridge in Gothenburg, Hisingsbron, for the very first time!
The first leg of the two-year expedition is between Gothenburg and Helsingborg, and this is the leg to be a part of – if climbing, getting the ship ready, learning about the rig, and taking her for the first run of the year is your thing, that is. And let’s not forget the spectacular departure from the Port of Gothenburg!
Helsingborg is the first stopover on Götheborg of Sweden’s great Asia Expedition 2022/2023! It is the first time that the ship visits Helsingborg, and the stopover will be part of the large city event and innovation show, H22 City Expo. As the first port stop is announced, the departure date for when the ship leaves Gothenburg is also made public; 8 June 2022.
Preparations for the Asia Expedition 2022/2023 are ongoing, and right now we have done caulking and pitching to seal the hull. The first thing is to caulk the deck with flax fibres to seal the seams. Then it is time for the pitching of the deck. This is done to keep the flax fibres in place once the ship is in the water.
