We are often asked by our loyal sailors whether we can sail around Skagen and not through the North - Baltic Sea Canal. This year we finally want to fulfil this wish.

Since 1895, seagoing ships have been taking the shortcut of about 250 nautical miles through the canal instead of sailing around Denmark to reach the Baltic Sea. We now want to take the old sea route to get from Bremerhaven to Kiel.

Nowadays, the canal is again being considered for enlargement, because the large ships of modern times no longer fit through the canal.
With the Artemis we will follow the tracks of the old windjammers around Skagen. We start in Wilhelmshaven and sail out into the North Sea, along Helgoland we head north towards Skagerrak from where we sail into the Baltic Sea. On the Baltic Sea we decide whether to take the route through the Great Belt or the Little Belt to reach our destination.

Possible ports: Skagen – Gøteborg – Aarhus – Kopenhagen – Fredericia – Sønderborg

Note: Wind and weather conditions can significantly affect the journey. If necessary due to unforeseen circumstances, significant changes may be made to the route.

Artemis

A journey aboard the Artemis gives you the opportunity to experience the beautiful history of sailing. Above decks you’ll be contiously amazed by the impressive rigging of the three master, the ropes, the pin rails, the rigging gear and the manpower to set the ship assail. Everything exudes a historic atmosphere which dates back tot 1926 when the ship was built in Norway for whale hunting.

The same maritime character contiues inside the ship. The Artemis has a stylish timber paneled salon with a typical ship bar and second salon above decks with lovely sea views. The 16 comfortable cabins are finished in mahogany. Each cabin is fitted out with a bunk bed and has an en-suite bathroom with toilet and shower. 

The perfect sail characteristics of the ship in combination with the comfort and luxury on board make the Artemis much loved by our guests.
