  • Accompany the Artemis on a unique journey along the old sea route around Skagen

Join the Artemis on a unique journey along the old sea route around Skagen. We have listened carefully when our loyal sailors have expressed the wish to take the traditional route and enjoy the picturesque diversions around Skagen instead of the fast route through the Kiel Canal. This year we would like to fulfil this wish again.
More information
Since 1895, ships have opted for the shortcut of around 250 nautical miles through the Kiel Canal instead of rounding Denmark to reach the Baltic Sea. But we long to explore the old sea routes and feel the breeze of the past as we sail from Bremerhaven to Kiel-Holtenau.
At a time when plans are being considered to widen the canal to accommodate modern mega-ships, we want to revive tradition. On board the Artemis, we will follow in the footsteps of the old windjammers. Our adventure begins in Bremerhaven and takes us out into the vast North Sea. Along the coast of Helgoland, we set our course northwards and head for the Skagerrak, from where we reach the Baltic Sea. In the Baltic Sea, we will decide whether to take the route through the Great Belt or the Little Belt to reach our destination. Possible ports of call on our journey are Helgoland, Skagen, Gothenburg, Aarhus, Copenhagen, Fredericia and Sønderborg.
Each harbour has its own stories and treasures waiting to be discovered. Experience the beauty of this historic route and enjoy the magic of the old sea routes while travelling with the Artemis. Join us on an adventure as we set sail and bring the past to life.

Note: Wind and weather conditions may significantly affect the voyage. If unforeseen circumstances make it necessary, changes may be made to the itinerary.

Luggage list

  1. It is advised to travel with a travel bag instead of a hard suitcase, since it is better to stow.
  2. A passport, if you need it for the planned trip. Otherwise an identity card is sufficient. (Inform yourself in advance)
  3. Oilskins are not necessary, but a good rainproof jacket, rain trousers and sturdy shoes are always good. Be it for hiking, cycling or helping on deck.
  4. Don't forget sunglasses, a sun hat or cap and sun cream, even when the sun is not visible you can get quite burnt.
  5. A good book for a bit of solitude or a good parlour game to play together with your fellow sailors.
  6. A camera! So that you can capture your memories and share them with those at home.
  7. Cash, because here you can only pay your drinks bill in cash. But also think about the currency of the country you are travelling to so you can buy a souvenir. 


Good to know: Would you like to travel alone and not share a cabin? Then you can book a single traveller supplement, which corresponds to the normal travel price + 50%.
