Further east, and you can explore the Adriatic Sea. Italy’s eastern coast and Croatia are particular highlights. Croatia’s jagged coast and islands makes for wonderful exploring.

Sailing in Southern Europe is attractive and varied. Further north, the water can be wilder but the coastlines are stunning and often deserted. Sweden’s coast is especially beautiful, with undisturbed beaches and in the summer season, almost endless daylight. Or head to Scotland and explore the beauty and challenging sailing of the Hebrides. In winter, experienced sailing crews can take you on a journey to see the Northern Lights shine out over the ocean.
