A once-in-a-lifetime experience

Discover the beautiful coastal towns of Skagerak. Sail along various Swedish and Norwegian archipelagoes on board the three-masted topsail schooner Eendracht and experience what it is like to sail a Tall Ship at sea. Tack, man overboard, port, galley. Do you already know these terms? Discover them aboard the largest gaff topsail schooner in the Netherlands. Our crew is happy to teach you everything about the ins and outs on board Eendracht. Participating in the activities and watch schedule is on a voluntary basis. Visit the beautiful coastal towns of Southern Scandinavia. Explore the picturesque coastal villages during the day and experience the bright summer nights at sea. To cover the distance and enjoy sailing to the fullest we will have a few sea days. We depart from Varberg and set course to sea. While sailing, the ship is bustling with activities. Have you ever showered when a ship is tilted? Get on board, because your Eendracht adventure starts here.

Where are we going?

Day 5: Day at Sea: Making our way west to Arendal

The sails will be set, while we are making our way west towards Arendal. The crew will continue to share their knowledge about sailing the Eendracht. Or simply take out your book and take in the commanding views of all the white sails gliding past the Norwegian South Coast.

Day 8: Hvide-Sande: Where Denmark meets the infinity

Hvide-Sande is on the receiving end of the North Sea’s winter depression, but in the summer, it transforms into a bustling place when tourists occupy the streets and beaches. The thriving fisher harbour supplies the town with the delicacies from the sea. If you’re interested in coastal living, dunes and sandy beaches and a dose of water-based adventures then this is the place to be.

After departure in the afternoon, we make our way to Esbjerg.
