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!
Asia Expedition 2022/2023
Copenhagen and Oslo – Final two stops in the Nordics
In July we're coming to Copenhagen and Oslo! We're excited to return to Oslo, and it is the first time ever that the ship visits Copenhagen. In both cities the ship will be open to visitors. We're looking forward to seeing you there!

Copenhagen and Oslo 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.
Copenhagen, 20–24 July
We will be in Copenhagen 20–24 July and will be moored at a great summer location, Nordre Toldbod, just south of Kastellet and close to The Little Mermaid.
The ship has been to Denmark three times before, twice in Frederikshavn (2009 and 2010) and once in Aarhus (2013), but it is the first time we visit Copenhagen.
“On our great Asia Expedition, we wanted to visit all the Scandinavian countries before we head towards the Mediterranean and Asia, and we are very excited to visit both Copenhagen and Oslo as the last two stopovers in the Nordic Countries”, said Kristoffer Bennis, Expedition Director at Götheborg of Sweden.
Oslo, 28–31 July
Just at the end of July, 28–31, the ship will come to Oslo. We will be moored at Vippetangen by Akershus Fortress, visible from Aker Brygge/Tjuvholmen.
“ We welcome the sailing ship Götheborg. The Port of Oslo is responsible for the family event Oslo Havnelangs. The sailing ship Götheborg will be a popular attraction as we extend the event to the whole summer”, said Siv Ellen Omland, head of communication in The Port of Oslo.
Götheborg of Sweden has been in Oslo twice before, in May 2013 and in June 2015.
Sail with us
As Copenhagen and Oslo are both announced as the forth and fifth stopovers on the Asia Expedition, the possibility to apply to sail along as a deckhand on board is released for three sailing legs: Stockholm – Copenhagen, Copenhagen – Oslo, and Oslo – London.
These sailing legs are quite different. The first one will be beautiful sailing in the Baltic Sea at the height of summer. The sailing leg from Copenhagen to Oslo is one of the shortest sailing legs on the whole expedition, and perfect for anyone who wants to try a shorter period at sea. From Oslo to London we will sail the North Sea, and are keeping our fingers crossed that we'll see both maritime wildlife and sea sparkle.
So, are you ready for an adventure packed with keeping watch out on the bowsprit, taking in and setting sails, and climbing down to the gun room during the fire round? Is that a yes?
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.
