Transatlantic Voyage in the wake of Ferdinand Magellan. 500 years after Magellan’s famous expedition, Bark Europa follows in his path. This exciting voyage will take you from Cape Verde archipelago off the coast of Africa to the capital of Uruguay in South America. Spend over a month on board a century-old Tall Ship. Follow in the path of old explorers, learn everything you need to know about sailing, disconnect from the outside world; look out for dolphins and admire the stars in the middle of the Atlantic. Live a once in a lifetime adventure, meet like-minded people and make wonderful memories. Open to Windseekers of 15 years and older. Limited places in 2-person cabins available.
