There are many ways to explore the Nordics and its captivating nature, but one of the most unique ways is by sailboat. Aboard Galeasen Albanus – a ship from 1988 that graces the Baltic waters and Åland’s archipelago – you can experience just this.
“Albanus is both the most peaceful and exciting way to get to know the Baltic waters. It is a big boat that takes you on a pretty unique journey. You can enjoy starry nights, wave to sunbathing seals, take a swim, or just sit in silence,” says Emmy Karlsson, Chairman at Skeppsföreningen Albanus.
A once in a lifetime experience
When travelling with Albanus, you will make memories for life. You will learn how to sail, navigate the waters with the charts, hoist the sails, cook in the ship’s kitchen, and experience sleeping in a boat cabin.
“It is an experience unlike any other. It is perfect for a family, a group of friends or colleagues who are ready for an adventure. It’s not fancy in any way – there’s no shower on board, for example. But to travel across the waters and appreciate nature in this way is truly extraordinary,” emphasises Karlsson.
None on board, but the small Finnish guest ports along the way will provide you with showers and, of course, saunas. This grand vessel is one of the most authentic ways to journey on the Baltic waters.
