Welcome on board!

On board Götheborg you will visit the beautiful weather deck with the helm, capstan and ship’s bell. Sundeck offers great views of the ship and masts, and down on gun deck there are ten impressive cannons. Don’t miss the two pieces from the original ship, one piece by the historical cupboard with porcelain and chalk pipes on gun deck, and the other one recessed into the helm.

We have station guiding on board when in port. That means that you follow a marked route around the ship and the ship’s deckhands are stationed in different places around the ship, ready to tell you about the ship, sailing on board and the great Asia Expedition. Come prepared with all your questions!

Shop and Exhibition

Next to the ship you will find our shop where you can buy souvenirs from your visit, as well as an exhibition about the history of the original Götheborg, the building of the replica and the current expedition. Welcome!

Where to find us

Götheborg of Sweden will be moored at Ramla de Mar, where La Rambla meet the sea. Come and see us from the quayside or visit us during our opening hours. Welcome!

Sailing leg twelve

The Autumnal Passage – Valletta to Barcelona

Barcelona Bound

It makes absolute sense to make beautiful Barcelona our next stop after Valletta, both cities being well-known for their extraordinary architecture. This is actually the last leg before our winter break in Barcelona and, in other words, the last chance for deckhands to get on board Götheborg while it’s still 2022.

For the Autumnal Passage to Catalonia, we will be heading west again. On our way through the Mediterranean, we will pass an array of countries and islands. These are once again dolphin waters, and unlike Northern Europe in late autumn, October should still be nice and warm, but can also serve up sailing in strong winds. Entering the port of Barcelona is probably the best way to arrive in the city. Doing it on board Götheborg makes it even more unique.

We’ll be leaving Valletta on 18 October. So, are you up for a week or so of some old-school sailing? We know we are, and we have openings for a number of deckhands to join us, beginners and more experienced ones alike.

Days sailing: 9 days
Days in port: 5 days

Sign on: Valletta, 17 October 2022
Sign off: Barcelona, 31 October 2022
