Come sail with us

Sailing is key on any sailing ship, and weather permitting, the skippers of Astrid and Svanhild will exploit the winds as much as possible. To avoid heavier seas, we can also sail more sheltered routes when needed. Customers have the opportunity to take part in all ship activities, from hoisting and trimming sails to navigating and steering the vessel. The Finnish archipelago is beautiful all year round and sailing on an authentic wooden ship is an unforgettable experience. We can also dock at a nearby island or anchor at a sheltered creek, enjoy nautical cuisine from the galley or dip in the sea after sauna.

Let the sea breeze whet your appetite

Delicious food is an important factor in any successful sailing cruise. You can either bring your own or let our Chef, Juha Laukontaus, prepare a delicious banquet for you. How does an extensive island buffet, seven-course sit-down dinner, delicious traditional fish chowder or a barbecue on an island cliff top sound? During crayfish season we also organise crayfish parties aboard; indeed, while the best crayfish are caught in lakes, they are best enjoyed at sea.
