Join us on a glorious adventure on a stunning 19th-century tall ship. This Journey will take you from Kiel, a city located at the 17-kilometre-long Kieler Fjord which flows into the Baltic Sea. Kiel has the reputation of being the sailing capital of Germany. To the stunning city of London, UK.

Along the way, you’ll experience many different sea types and is the perfect opportunity to get in touch with your sailing skills. Take part in watches, setting the sails, helming, setting the course and much more. Or simply sit back and relax, watch the dolphins playing in the bow waves, and enjoy a good book.

On this trip, you will meet like-minded adventurers, and join together to learn new skills and have an amazing experience, as well as make great new friends!

You’ll embark on Sunday 28th, your first night onboard will be spent in the harbour in one of our 14 comfortable cabins after a delicious dinner served in our longroom.

The next morning we will leave the harbour and set sail for London. On our exceptional three-master, we will start with taking you over the Baltic Sea and along several Danish islands: a unique and wonderful sailing area. There will be plenty of opportunities to hoist a sail together with our crew, stand on the lookout, working aloft or steer the ship as helmsman if you like.

Sailing underneath the imposing Great Belt Bridge will be next. This 65 meters high suspension bridge consists of several parts and has a total length of 18 kilometres. The voyage will continue through the Kattegat and along the Danish isles of Anholt and Laeso. After passing Denmark’s northernmost town Skagen and the sea strait Skagerrak we will arrive at the North Sea.

We will then be sailing along the west coast of Denmark characterized by countless bays, straits and inlets. At the Wadden Sea area, the landscape tends to look more and more Dutch with numerous polders. Finally, we will sail on Britain’s most important waterway “The Thames” to the famous Tower Bridge. A smashing end of this voyage!

During the time sailing, you can join the watch teams. These shifts are called the Red Watch (from 12- 4 AM and PM), the White Watch (from 4-8 AM and PM) and the Blue Watch (from 8-12 AM and PM). You can fully experience the works on an authentic tall ship. Setting the sails, keeping lookout, setting the course or standing watch: you can participate in all of it.

As a member of the Red Watch, you can admire the peacefulness of being at sea and the endless starry sky. In the White Watch, you will experience the break of dawn like you never did before while in the Blue Watch you can enjoy the sailing while maintaining a regular day and night rhythm.

On arrival near the Tower Bridge on Sunday morning, you will have a wonderful view on deck of the London skyline with the famous bridge, the financial district, the Tower, the Big Ben, the parliament buildings and even the London Eye. At noon it is time to say goodbye to the captain, crew and fellow travellers and the metropolis can be explored for those who have some extra time.
