In August, we will attend the freshly started Gothenburg Row. During the cultural feast in Gothenburg, lots of traditional row boats will tour around the inner city canal.

Tickets and prices
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!
Sail with us from Nice to Valletta
You can be part of the unique adventure of sailing as a deckhand on board Götheborg. You will experience life on board a 18th century ship and make friends for life. As a deckhand you sail together with the professional crew, are not required to have any sailing experience and will get training on board. Read more about the sailing leg from Nice to Valletta below.
Sailing leg eleven
The Maltese Connection – Nice to Valletta
Heading South Once Again!
The Maltese Connection coming up
Götheborg will be leaving Nice on 6 October. Destination this time? Valletta, the smallest capital in the European Union. More importantly, the city is a World Heritage site and is often referred to as an open-air museum of, among other things, Baroque architecture.
This leg of our expedition, therefore, should be of certain interest to those who love not only to sail in the beautiful early Mediterranean autumn, but also have a thing for the wings of history. If that sounds like you, you may well be one of the deckhands we are looking for.
The Maltese Connection will see Götheborg sail past Corsica and Sardinia, before passing between Tunisia and Sicily. Upon arrival in Valletta, we will be warmly welcomed. It’s more than likely we will have experienced dolphins along the way to Götheborg’s southernmost destination during 2022.
Days sailing: 8 days
Days in port: 2 days
Sign on: Nice, 5 October 2022

A decision to proceed with inspections for 2024 has been made.
Are you interested in volunteering at Götheborg during our maintenance period? We are now looking for a few volunteers who have sailed with us recently and are willing to stay with us for 6-8 weeks.
