Eye of the Wind:
Ystad (SE) - Kalmar (SE)

07 February - 07 September 2016

Replace the everyday life with the life aboard a traditional Tall Ship for a week! This voyage will take you through the Swedish archipelago and to the Danish island of Bornholm with its neighboring Ertholmene-islets. The journey ends in Kalmar, where the Ship had her home port almost 100 years ago. One week of relaxation, adventure and nature impressions. The gentle, steady up and down of the hull in the waves, the vastness of the sea and the faint creaking of the rigging – these are the best ingredients for a relaxing holiday experience.
