Sail the Skagerrak!
The western Swedish skerries seascape is considered by experienced sailors to be the most beautiful sailing area of the Baltic Sea. This sailing "playground" has a diverse landscape, is well protected, uniquely attractive, and at times dreamy and fairytale-like. This is where our special discovery voyage through this fantastic landscape begins: From Gothenburg, we cross the Skagerrak and then sail along the southern Norwegian coast to Stavanger.

Gothenburg, Sweden
Gothenburg, a major city in Sweden, is situated off the Gota Alv river on the country's west coast. An important seaport, it's known for Dutch style canals and leafy boulevards lined with many cafes and shops.

Gothenburg has world class seafood, restaurants and a coastline and archipelago to die for.


Baltic Sea
The Baltic Sea is a sea of the Atlantic Ocean, enclosed by Scandinavia, Finland, the Baltic countries and the North European Plain. The Baltic Sea is the youngest sea on the planet, emerging from the retreating ice masses some 10-15,000 years ago.

This sea is one of the most threatened marine ecosystems on the planet. Decades of human activity in and around the sea continue to negatively impact its sensitive environment namely heavy shipping and oil spills, marine litter, over fishing and more.


The Skagerrak
The Skagerrak is a strait running between the southeast coast of Norway, the southwest coast of Sweden and the Jutland peninsula of Denmark, connecting the North Sea and the Kattegat Sea area to the Baltic Sea. Some ports along the Skagerrak are Oslo and Kristiansand in Norway and Uddevalla and Stromstad in Sweden.

In both world wars the Skagerrak was strategically very important to Germany. The importance of controlling this waterway, the sole sea access to the Baltic was the motivation for the German invasion of Denmark and Norway during WW2. Naval engagements here have contributed to the large number of shipwrecks in the area.


Stavanger, Norway
Stavanger is a city and municipality in Norway. The city is the third-largest urban zone and metropolitan area in Norway and the administrative center of Rogaland county.

The municipality is the fourth most populous in Norway. Located on the Stavanger Peninsula in Southwest Norway, Stavanger counts its official founding year as 1125, the year Stavanger cathedral was completed. Stavanger's core is to a large degree 18th and 19th century wooden houses that are protected and considered part of the city's cultural heritage. This has caused the town center and inner city to retain a small-town character with an unusually high ratio of detached houses, and has contributed significantly to spreading the city's population growth to outlying parts of Greater Stavanger.

The city's rapid population growth in the late 1900s was primarily a result of Norway's booming offshore oil industry. Today the oil industry is a key industry in the Stavanger region and the city is widely referred to as the Oil Capital of Norway.
