Bark EUROPA Summer adventures 2019

After the oceancrossing from Cape Town to Scheveningen we will start the Summer with a northern adventure! Sail with us from Scheveningen to Aalborg or explore the surroundings of Fredrikstad on our way to Amsterdam! 

I have to share this with my friends and all who love the sea. Wherever she (Bark Europa) sails is an unforgettable adventure. The ship, the people and the food was amazing. Fair winds and following seas.


Summer Port Specials 2019

This summer EUROPA will sail in European waters! While she is usually lucky to meet fellow tall ships in small numbers in ports far overseas, this June she may welcome many impressive tall ships from all over the world in her home port Scheveningen! After the port event Sail op Scheveningen EUROPA will be sailing onward with the fleet to Aalborg, Denmark and Fredrikstad, Norway! We would love to welcome old friends and new friends on board in these ports during open ship and daysails!

The crew makes it great! They are so relaxed, on to it, friendly and always helpful. Heaps of fun and adventure! 


Tall Ships Races 2019

Be part of our crew at the Tall Ships Races! The ports are buzzing with excitement when so many beautiful ships are paying a visit. And ofcourse we challenge eachother in the Tall Ships Race for the best ship and crew.

The crew make it great - they are so relaxed, onto it, friendly and always helpful. Heaps of fun and adventure! What a delight to swim in the North Sea and the Norwegian fjords!


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! 

What a marvellous experience I had on this trip. The ship was incredible and the crew were so helpful for those of us who had never sailed on a square rigger before. We swam near the equator, saw dolphins, whales, flying fish and albatross and had perfect sailing weather for most of the trip. I would absolutely recommend an ocean voyage on Europa to anyone looking for a special experience, I can’t wait to do another trip!


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.

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.

It was a amazing voyage!!! The crew were wonderful in helping us with everything and the cook was absolutely amazing! I think that for a training ship she is handled very well and the organization was great. The captain did a superb job of wrangling the 40 plus landlubbers and keeping a ship shape ship! Thank you to everyone for all the love and effort that goes into this beautiful vessel.
