Artemis:
Harlingen (NL) - Tanager (NO) - Stavanger (NO)

22 July - 26 July 2018

A short but no less exciting journey on Tall Ship Artemis. Board the vessel in Harlingen, the Netherlands, and set course for Norwegian Tanager. After a short time you will cast off the lines again and sail towards Stavanger where many other Tall Ships, Small Ships and Yachts will be starting to gather for a sailing festival. This trip is a nice taster if you’re not sure whether Tall Ships sailing is for you, or a way to spend a few days on board for anyone who can’t join a longer journey this season. You can book up to 2 extra nights in Stavanger and join the festival for EUR 65 p.n.p.p. based on B&B. For Windseekers aged 15 and older.

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.

Stavanger is a modern port, but retains a small historic district. The lovely old harbour is a favourite stopover for big cruiseships that tower over the buildings. The city has a lively cultural scene, and is surrounded by numerous outdoor destinations well worth a visit. Explore the narrow, rocky Lysefjord and the mountains Preikestolen and Kjerag, or relax on Jæren's beaches. Make sure to bring hiking boots, as the mountains stand over 1000 meters tall.
