Come on board the Götheborg! Learn about the history of the East India Companies and the adventures of the original Götheborg that sailed three times to Asia. Hear modern tales of sailing an 18th century ship, and about the exciting expedition to Asia. Feel the authentic atmosphere, including the smell of tar, and listen to everything from captivating stories, to the tremendous art of shipbuilding.

Götheborg of Sweden has been to Helsinki twice before, in 2008 and 2013. The interest from Finland was great when we sailed to Stockholm last year and we are excited to be coming back!

We look forward to seeing you in a couple of days!!

Visit the ship in Helsinki 23–27 June

During the Helsinki 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!

Changes to sailing leg 3 and the Stockholm stopover

24 June 2022

Some changes will be made to the sailing leg from Helsinki to Stockholm, and arrival at the stopover in Stockholm will be moved to a few days later. This is due to a visit to the drydock (in Stockholm) that we want to make with the ship, while we are still in Northern Europe.

Today, at 4pm, we left the beautiful city of Helsingborg after three wonderful and sunny days in port. We've had thousands of visitors, a great arrival ceremony, and business dinners and lunches on board during our stay. We have also greeted three watches of new deckhands on board, who will sail with us to Helsinki.
