We have arrived in London, and we were greeted with style by the Londoners! Passing Tower Bridge at 08:30 in the morning, thousands of onlookers were lining the quaysides to see the ship. We are now moored at Thames Quay in the South Dock in Canary Wharf, and will be open to visitors during the stopover.
ASIA EXPEDITION 2022/2023
Thank you, and farewell Stockholm
As we set sail from Stockholm, the long rivalry between the second city Göteborg and the capital lays buried, as the Ship Götheborg was given pride of place at Skeppsbrokajen 105 by Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s Old Town.
Thank you Stockholm! We had a tremendous few days with beautiful weather only punctuated by a few showers. When national TV and Radio turned up, journalists were not only invited onto the ship but also to climb the rigging, where expedition Director, Kristoffer Bennis, was interviewed about Götheborg’s voyage around Europe and Asia. Swedish Radio also stayed onboard as we cast off and set sail for Copenhagen, Denmark.
During our stay in Stockholm several ambassadors visited us onboard to talk about Swedish trade relations and new partnerships. We were happy to see so many other visitors who had made a special trip just to board and view the ship. We also got a beautiful 1800s wig (and makeup) from our friend Julia at Smink och Perukmakarn.
As we cast off rain started dissipating, and we sailed with the sound of the gun salut from the quay. Next stop, Copenhagen, Denmark!
Visit the ship in Copenhagen
During the Copenhagen stopover, the ship will be open to visitors. Experience the ship, learn about her history and see her at her most beautiful. Don't miss out on this opportunity!
We are now headed for London, after four sunny and warm days in the Norwegian capital Oslo. Thank you Oslo for hosting us for a few days, and thank you to everyone who came and visited us. Oslo is the last stop in the Nordic countries before we head south on our great Asia Expedition 2022/2023.
We have arrived in Oslo, and are now moored at Vippetangen near Akershus Fortress. We are here until Sunday 31 July, and are open to visitors Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We look forward to greeting you on board!
