The "Svanen" Cruises
A sailing trip with the Swan on Mariager Fjord is an exceptionally beautiful and idyllic journey that takes you through a stunning landscape filled with nature and cultural-historical experiences.
The Swan (Svanen) - Sailing on Mariager Fjord
The journey on the beautiful fjord creates a fantastic space and allows you to enjoy nature in the company of your loved ones. The area surrounding Mariager Fjord is indeed filled with exciting opportunities and unique moments.
Mariager Fjord is Denmark's longest actual fjord, with a length of 42 km, where Hobro lies at the innermost part with its cozy streets and lively harbor.
You decide where the trip starts, but if you join from Hobro, you first pass through the Østerskoven, which houses tall beech trees and old oak thickets. Then follows the north side of the fjord and the protected Bramslev Bakker, a preserved natural area of about 300 hectares. The area offers a lot of fantastic nature experiences for the whole family.
All sailings on the Swan are a sure hit for young and old, but to ensure you have a place on board, it is recommended that you book your ticket online before departure.
The Swan is located at the harbor in Hobro, where the Hobro Værft, Lystfarttøjsmuseet, and Vikingemuseet Fyrkat are not far away.
The first call for a sailing trip on the Swan is on Saturday, May 6th, while the last call is on Sunday, September 24th.

Events - special sailings
From June 4th, the Swan sails the Triangle Route, where you can combine a sailing trip with a train ride on the Vintage Railway, followed by a bus ride from Handest to Hobro or vice versa. After boarding, you can lean back and enjoy the atmosphere, which takes you back about 75 years. How you want to combine the trip regarding the schedule and starting point is up to you.
The Triangle Route ticket grants free admission to the Mariager Museum for the rest of the 2023 season - so remember to keep the ticket.
As something completely new, strong forces have come together and a new concept is now ready. The tour is called "Salt Tour" with the subtitle "on rails, by water, and in the forge." The tour includes a ride on the Veterantoget, a visit to the Mariager Saltcenter including a tour and a meal at Café Salt, and finally, a cozy sail on the Mariager Fjord with the Swan.
