Norway To Sweden Sailing Holiday

Sandefjord To Gothenburg

Sailing Type – Coastal

The skies were mesmeric when the sun shone, azure blue backed by ranks of serried clouds.
As for the good ship Trinovante, she thrust on through the seas; comfortable, solid, robust and of pleasing lines; she is a pleasure to sail on.

Sandefjord

Sandefjord is known for its Viking and whaling history. It now has a large merchant fleet and is one of the richest cities in Norway. Sandefjord gets lots of summer holiday visitors and is also known as the ‘bathing city’ because of its beaches.

We have chosen Sandefjord for the beginning of this voyage for two reasons. Firstly it is a transport hub which is handy for you. It is only three miles to Oslo Torp airport, and the train station is very close to where Trinovante will be moored. Secondly Triovante has never been here before and we like to explore new places.

Sailing The West Coast Of Sweden

Leaving Sandefjord Trinovante will sail across the wooded entrance to Oslo fjord and head across the border into Sweden.

From here we sail into an unspoiled archipelago of thousands of islands and skerries that extends 160 km right down to Gothenburg.

This is Western Sweden at its best. Known as the Bohuslan coast the unusual pink colour of the distinctive Bohus granite makes this a special area. The rock glows an orangey-pink in the rising and setting sun, pine forests hug the shore, and there are numerous natural harbours.

Typical boathouses in Sweden

Along this route, there will be sections where Trinovante is sailing along the scenic Swedish coast in open water. On other parts of the coast, we will be ducking in behind islands.

There will be the usual mix of pretty anchorages and alongside berths where you can explore ashore at will.

Gothenburg

In Gothenburg, Trinovante will berth along with other ships at the traditional boat quay in Eriksburg.

Close neighbours will be the Götheborg, a sailing replica of the Swedish East Indiaman Götheborg I, and a local wooden trading schooner, the INGO. There are some good photos of the INGO under sail in the 2017 Tall Ships Race on our Tall Ships & Schooners Gallery

If you have an extra day, Gothenburg is an attractive city with some good museums, shops and parks.

  • All meals onboard
    We provide breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. Obviously, if you choose to eat ashore, this is at your own expense. We can cater for most diets, but you must let us know about special diets at the time of booking. We cannot cater for special diets at short notice.

    Ships rules are no drinking alcohol at sea or if we are about to sail. This does NOT mean Trinovante is a dry boat – it’s fine to have a drink in the evening when we are at anchor or alongside. We don’t sell alcohol on board so bring your own.
