Sail from Harlingen to Alesund in this short spring journey. Board Christian Radich in the north of Netherlands and cross the North Sea together to Norway. This is a perfect taster trip – if you don’t know whether Tall Ships sailing is for you, you can now spend 4 days on board of a full-rigged vessel and find out. Or perhaps you have a few days free and want to start the season early? Book now! Pre-night in Harlingen possible at EUR 60 per night per person. Open for all ages, minimum age 15 years (age 12-15 years at request and accompanied by an adult).

Ports

Harlingen is a trade and fishing port in Friesland, the Netherlands. The town itself is over a thousand years old, and you’ll find several historic streets in the old city centre. Its small size makes it easy to explore the town on foot. In 2014 Harlingen was a port of call for the Tall Ships Races. The town operates ferry lines to the Frisian Islands, a unique nature reserve with populations of seals, birds, and other wildlife. With its ‘gezellige’ pubs the town is a great place for a stopover.

Ålesund is an intimate harbor amongst beautiful fjords, mountains and islands. Consisting out of seven islands, Ålesund is a modern city. In 1904 the city, once built largely of wood, was completely burned down by a sea of flames. After a period of planning, the town was rebuilt in stone, brick, and mortar in Jugendstil. Visit the Atlantic Sea Park on a rainy day or, if the weather is nice, go to the Sunnmoere Museum to see historic Norwegian houses and Viking relics.
