Join Trinovante in the unspoiled Swedish archipelago of Gothenburg before sailing south for Copenhagen.
Set sail with tall ship Trinovante as she journeys from Sweden to the Danish capital of Copenhagen exploring sandy islands or historic Scandinavian towns.
Begining your voyage in the beautiful archipelago of Gothenburg is the perfect introduction to Swedish sailing. With over 20 islands to discover and explore, this archipelago stretches the Swedish coast like a string of pearls. Classic coloured wooden houses line the shorefronts with seals basking on rocky outlets. Charming traditional Scandinavian villages, stunning beaches and nature reserves are all waiting to be explored.
This voyage will have two route options depending on the weather. One option is to sail down the Kattegat sea and to the sandy island of Anholt. This Danish island is covered in a blanket of pine-wooded forest on one side and sweeping desert-like terrain on the other. The other option is to keep close to the Swedish coast perhaps visiting towns such as Varberg or Halmstad.
Whichever way we choose, Trinovante will aim to sail into the Danish town of Helsingor to see Hamlet’s castle before continuing down Oresund and reaching our final stop of Copenhagen. Rich in culture and heritage, Copenhagen ends your voyage in a sensational way. Nyhavn is the most colourful street in the city of Copenhagen with architectural delights dating back to the 17th century where cafes line the canal replete with old wooden sailing ships.
As with all our sailing holidays, the exact itinerary will depend on the weather will be chosen each day by your skipper to make the best use of the weather conditions. All meals and hot/soft drinks and hire of waterproofs are included in your ticket price.

Guest berths: 8 Rig: Gaff Schooner
Designed and lovingly built by her current owners John and Su for long-distance sailing, Trinovante is a wonderful tall ship inspired by Portuguese Schooner Creoula. Built-in a small village on the banks of the River Colne in Essex, this beautiful three-masted Schooner was designed to be strong and seaworthy but also be able to carry plenty of sail with a small crew. She is a British registered, three-masted schooner and is UK Marine and Coast Guard Agency coded for category 1.
Trinovante is an absolute joy to sail whether you are an experienced sailor or a complete beginner. Her skippers and crew love welcoming guests aboard and Trinovante is a boat that invites you to get involved. The possibilities for different sail combinations mean that she can be handled to suit her crew and the weather conditions. Her rig is relatively simple for her size which means she is a great boat to learn on and get involved, quickly becoming part of the crew.
Trinovante never sails the same route twice and she covers some 3000 to 4000 sea miles every year. From the wild mountains, fjords and islands of Norway to the medieval seaports of the Netherlands; from the Orkney and Shetland Isles to the bustling centre of Copenhagen. Enjoy unique and varied sailing holiday adventures with a mix of taster weekends, coastal sailing and offshore voyages in some of the most beautiful parts of Europe.
Her Skippers are also her owners who designed and built the boat themselves. Their passion for life on the water, their boat and sharing the experience with their guests is their top priority. They even ensure they make time to have a chat over the phone with every guest that books with them.
