Esbjerg (DK) - Tanager (NO) - Stavanger (NO)

20 July - 27 July 2018

Hop-on, hop-off tour of the Norwegian coast. Leave the second Tall Ships Races port of Esbjerg in a fleet of dozens of vessels. Sail across the North Sea to Norway and spend the time discovering the coastal towns: Lindesnes, Sirevag and Tanager – before reaching Stavanger. This trip is an intense sightseeing opportunity for anyone interested in the ports as much as sailing. Take part in a festival in Lindesnes, visit a medieval church in Sirevag and check out the fishing museum in Tanager, with a dose of sailing on a large Tall Ship in between! You can also embark in other ports along the way – see the following journeys. Open for all Windseekers aged 15 and older. If you’d like to disembark in a port other than Stavanger, please contact us at info@windseeker.org

Ports

Esbjerg is a beautiful coastal city in the South-West of Denmark, with the second biggest harbour in Denmark - a lively place full of fishing and shipping activities. You can observe the town's maritime history in its attractions: from the Fisheries- and Maritime Museum, Esbjerg Skibet statue to the Men at Sea monument, everything brings you back to the sea. Visit also the Ribe Vikinge Center, a fun outdoor museum where you will meet the Vikings themselves!

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.
