Sailing Expedition

Go directly to the journeys

Combine sailing with discovering exotic new places. Have adventures on water and on land, each day brining new things to explore. Spend the time outdoors, disconnect from the daily troubles and get maximum excitement out of your holiday time.

Sail a traditional ship to remote destinations - sometimes accessible only by water. Use the power of the wind to reach your port of call with as little impact on local nature as possible. Learn to sail and enjoy the journey as much as the destination.

Don’t be shy – Sail Training means learning by doing, but the experienced crew won’t let you mess it up! Trim the sails, navigate the sea charts and learn to make useful knots. Take the helm and feel the rush of steering a large vessel all by yourself.

Reach your destination and find a safe harbour for your ship. It’s time to explore! Put on your hiking boots and don’t forget the camera! Go hiking in the highlands or conquering glaciers, or maybe visiting remote villages and tasting exotic cuisines.

Use your time on land to the fullest. Immerse yourself in these new places and learn about their history and culture. Climb a mountain and take in the view from up high. Can you see your ship? Look around carefully for signs of wildlife: maybe you’ll spot whales, reindeer or penguins?

Enjoy the digital detox and leave the phone behind in your cabin. Pick up that book you’ve been wanting to read for ages, spend long hours after dinner chatting with your new friends or simply let yourself get lost in looking over the horizon. This is your dream adventure.
