Join us as we return to Shetland from Bergen. This is a route well travelled by many a sailor, from our Viking ancestors to the modern day annual Bergen - Shetland Races. This exciting trip across the North Sea is always fun!

Boarding Swan in Bergen, Norway at 10am, your stay will begin with a comprehensive safety briefing including how to work the lines on deck and set the sails. We will then cast off and set sail across the North Sea for Lerwick, Shetland.

During the voyage you will take part in every aspect of working this 120 year old traditional wooden vessel, including watch duties and taking a turn at the helm, all under the supervision of our expert Skipper and Mate. A voyage on Swan is very much a hands-on experience - you are part of her crew, and work as a team to make your voyage happen. All tasks are shared and everyone joins in, from the most to the least experienced. For more details of what to expect on board please refer to our Welcome Aboard leaflet.

We will disembark Thursday 3rd Sept at 10am in Lerwick, Shetland.
