May day cruise to Helgoland with the Atlantis
Do you have a few days off with “Labor Day”? Get on board the Atlantis and spend a wonderful long weekend on this beautiful ship! A weekend at Helgoland gives you the feeling of being on vacation for a week.
The island Helgoland in the North Sea is special in several ways: unique rock formations, cliffs and dunes are home to an impressive bird colony. You can watch them from the North Sea side while underway with the Atlantis. An excursion to the island of Düne is also planned. The sand dune there is famous for the many gray seals.

Scotland: hiking and whisky with the Atlantis
Towering mountains, shimmering holes, dense forests and miles of golden beaches - the landscape in Scotland is always breath taking. Drive through the deep fjords of Scotland surrounded by mountains. A country full of history and the origin of the world famous single malt whiskys. This trip is suitable for both nature lovers and whiskey lovers! Click here for more information.
Water paradise Holland with the Elizabeth
Our ships sail through European waters, from the far north to the deep south of Europe. However, we cannot overlook the fact that our homeland has so much to offer. Especially when you will discover the Netherlands from the water. The rich history of Dutch trade and the geological development of a country in the delta of many rivers becomes visible on this trip with our historic clipper Elizabeth. For more information about the trip to picturesque harbour towns on the IJsselmeer and the World Heritage Wadden Sea, please click here.
NEW: Milemaker Harlingen - Bodø
This beautiful and popular milemaker is available again for 2020! For those who really love adventure and sailing, this trip is an absolute must. Experience 11 nights on board the Antigua and feel like a real sea beggar! Curious? Please click here!
PRISTINE WINTER BEAUTY IN THE HIGN NORTH
After a year of preparations, we sailed our first Northern Lights & Whales trips from Tromsø in Norway last November and December. The trips were all booked out and expectations were high. We are very happy to say that the trips went exceptionally well. Our guests enjoyed large groups of whales, the magical Northern Lights - in different strengths - colourful skies, dense snow showers, small islands with warm receptions, special encounters with locals and spectacular sailing moments. Reason enough to offer another winter program for next year!
In the coming months we will work on expanding our website to provide guests relevant information for the trips to the far north. At this moment you can find the complete program on our website. Please click here for our winter program.
LESS EMISSIONS FOR ARTEMIS
The engine of the Artemis was replaced on November 21, 2019 in Harlingen. The old engine was not broken or depreciated yet, but this investment gives our Bark Artemis a little more power. Above all, the new engine is significantly fuel-efficient and therefore better for the environment. Of course, we prefer to set sail as much as possible: it couldn't be more environmentally friendly!
NEW BOOKING SYSTEM, "NEW" BANK NUMBER
Our new booking system is gradually bearing fruit. Most bookings are now entered through our website. Of course we still like to talk to our customers. So if you would like assistance with the booking, just give us a call!
A number of customers have noticed that we use a different bank number than before. Since it is no longer a problem due to European guidelines to transfer money abroad, we are now also using our Dutch bank number for our customers in Germany. The account number is: NL27ABNA0620402083 on name of Tallship Artemis B.V.
2020: A YEAR FULL OF EVENTS
In 2020, the ships of Tallship Company will attend no less than 8 maritime events. Maybe an opportunity for you to get back on board one of our ships. Or experience a milemakere trip to an event. You can find us in Hamburg, Oostende, Kiel, Brest, Rostock, Amsterdam, Bremerhaven and Wilhelmshaven. For an overview of all events please click here.
