17 July - 27 July 2015
Journey along the magnificent coastline of Norway on board the Alexander von Humboldt II. The Cruise in Company of the Tall Ships Race 2015 brings you from Alesund to Kristiansand, past fjords, inlets, rugged mountains and small towns, all straight from a fairytale. Spend your days beholding the beautiful landscape, and spend your nights anchored in a secluded bay or berthed along a quay. There will be time to visit a town, organise a beech barbecue, or go for a swim. Open to all ages, minimum age 15 years.
Ålesund is once again host port for The Tall Ships Races in 2015. Ålesund harboured the event for the first time in 2001, in an intimate harbour 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.
Kristiansand is the business and cultural capital of southern Norway. The sea and surrounding fjords are perfect for recreational activities like fishing and sailing, and the nearby inland and mountains are ideal for skiing and hiking. In the more urban areas you will find a rich variety of cafes, restaurants, art galleries and museums.
"It was the most amazing thing I have done so far in my life! I loved it!"
