A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take part in the Tall Ships! You will experience the Parade of Sail and take part in the Crew Parade, with all the Tall Ships extravaganza has to offer.
Explore the beauty of the Norwegian coast while en route to Bergen. You may pop into Kristiansand, or take the dog-leg around into Stavanger, or perhaps you and your crewmates will prefer the quieter options of the many safe and secluded anchorages Norway has to offer. There will be a variety of interesting and exciting options on your way north.
The Swan is a sail training vessel, and as such you will take your turn on the helm, stand watch with the rest of your watch-mates, adjusting sails and doing safety checks, usually on a 4 hour on – 8 hour off watch system. You will also help out with domestic tasks such as cooking and cleaning. Everyone mucks in, from skipper to first-timer, and from the most to the least experienced. This will give you a strong sense of accomplishment and achievement – you are part of what makes your voyage happen, and your efforts will have a positive effect on the rest of the crew onboard.
After your trip you can either make your own way home or take advantage of our special discounted price of £200 for our voyage to Lerwick which includes the Bergen Parade of Sail.
