Lysekil in Sweden becomes a new partner in the Cruise Baltic network
Cruise Baltic is proud to announce Lysekil in Sweden as their latest partner to join the cruise network. The new partner brings the number of cruise ports and destinations up to a total of 32.
Cruise Baltic’s new partner, Lysekil, is located in the scenic archipelago of Bohuslän on the Swedish West Coast between Gothenburg and Oslo. As a small fishing town with just around 8,000 inhabitants, Lysekil sets itself apart from bigger cities in Sweden, and it is an excellent alternative or complement for the itinerary in the Baltic Sea region.
The port in Lysekil is managed by SDK Shipping. It has one pier of 190 meters in length and during an average season, the port typically has around three to five calls. The largest vessels that can call the port are 240 meters, and possibilities for vessels are evaluated individually.
“Lysekil is something completely different from the larger destinations in Sweden, it’s a small fishing town with an amazing atmosphere in the summer. It has something for everyone, all the way from Havets Hus for the playful kids to the calm and beautiful Gullmarkfjorden for the ones who love the nature,” says Lars Jespersen, the CEO of SDK Shipping.
Lysekil is located in idyllic surroundings with smooth rocks in red Bohus granite, beautiful islands and an active inshore boat life. The town is very easy to explore by foot and is a popular holiday spot especially known for its seafood and ‘soft adventure’ activities such as cycling, hiking, kayaking and rock-climbing.
“We’re very glad to welcome Lysekil to our cruise network which is now consisting of 32 destinations in Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Estonia, Lithuania, Germany and Poland. Lysekil, with its surrounding area, is an exciting destination that has a lot to offer our cruise guests”, says Claus Bødker, the Director of Cruise Baltic.
Lysekil is the 32nd partner to join Cruise Baltic and the fifth Swedish destination in the network.
