Antarctica season 2018/2019

From November 2018 the EUROPA will set sail in Antarctic waters again. We will start our season with a 39 day voyage with plenty of sailing days and a visit to South Georgia and the Antarctic peninsula. After this unique voyage we have scheduled two 22 day expeditions to Antarctica.

Antarctica is one of the most protected areas our world has to offer and because of this the natural habitat is almost completely preserved. Walls of ice with magical shapes and colours will surround the EUROPA, as well as thousands of penguins when you visit the main land. On board, you will be prepared by your guide before going a shore. 


We're under sail in the vast and unpredictable Southern Ocean in a 56m tall ship doing 7 knots heading towards South Georgia. And for the next 20 minutes - I was at the helm! This is what I came for. This is what it feels like to be really alive!


From South Africa to the Netherlands

After a new Antarctica season EUROPA will set sail from Cape Town to Horta in the Azores. On our way we will visit the beautiful remote islands of St. Helena and Ascension Island. This 53-day ocean voyage is an ideal journey to learn more about what it's like to sail a Tall Ship. From there, we sail from the Azores to the historic port of Rouen. After staying in Rouen for a few days we will start the Tall Ships Liberty Regatta, competing other tall ships in a race to our homeport Scheveningen. Scheveningen will host an international fleet of tall ships for the very first time and of course we dont want to miss this event.


Miles and miles of scintillating water, colorful mountains and islands afar, a sky full of magnificent cloud patterns and sun rays on day, and full of stars at night.

Magellan voyages

Starting in 2019 Bark EUROPA will celebrate the 500th anniversary of Ferdinand Magellan's adventures!

From Spain EUROPA will sail to South America, she will cross the Strait of Magellan and sail into the Pacific to visit some amazing destinations. The whole voyage will be published on the website in the new year. Stay tuned for more Pacific news! 

Antarctica season 2019/2020

Next year's Antarctica voyages are going to be extra special! After 500 years, we will follow the footsteps of the great explorer Ferdinand Magellan, sailing from Spain, via the Falklands and the Strait of Magellan into the Pacific. But before we start our great pacific adventure, we will return to Antarctica in 2019/20 from Punta Arenas and Ushuaia to visit the wildest and coldest continent on earth. Instead of steering for Cape Town, we will set sail to the turquoise seas and the Pacific islands.

We have scheduled 4 Antarctica expeditions between December 2019 and March 2020. More info on the specific voyages, ports of embarkation and disembarkation will follow before the 25th of December. The prices and exact dates will be published on the 2nd of January 2019. The voyages will be available on the website for bookings from: 

7th of January 2019 at 12:00 CEST

If you are interested in an expedition to South Georgia, we will be sailing there again in the season after our Pacific adventure, Antarctica season 2020/2021. We will start that season with a South Georgia expedition starting at the Falklands and will of course close that season with our traditional Cape to Cape voyage.
