Gulden Leeuw:
Lindesnes (NO) - Tanager (NO) - Stavanger (NO)

23 July - 27 July 2018

Hop-on, hop-off tour of the Norwegian coast. Join the Gulden Leeuw on a sightseeing tour. Board the vessel in Lindesnes and visit Sirevag and Tanager before disembarking in Stavanger. In Sirevag, a village of just 500 inhabitants, you can take a walk to enjoy the stunning landscape and visit a medieval church, while Tanager invites you to try fresh shellfish and check out the fishing museum. And sailing from one destination to another on a Tall Ship just makes the experience so much better! You will arrive in Stavanger on the 26th and you will have the whole day to enjoy the festival before diesmbarking. You can also join this trip in other ports along the way – see other 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

Lindesnes is a popular tourist destination whose population of almost 5,000 doubles during the summer. Take a guided tour of the Lindesnes Lighthouse, visit the local brewery, and end the day by relaxing in one of the many restaurants!

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.
