How is the day trip?

Our crew will welcome you on board and explain the basics of the trip, then we’ll leave the mooring and start sailing. During the trip we’ll try to put up some sails, and you can help with that. There’ll be plenty of cool moments for a picture with the coastal background, with the crew, and in different parts of the ship (remember to mention @atyla_ship if you publish them).

Other relevant details:

  • There’s a toilet on board you’ll be able to use if you need it.
  • Smoking is allowed on deck. Always try not to disturb anyone and never throw the cigarette butt overboard.
  • To avoid pollution, drinks come in a reusable Atyla glass that you’ll get for a €2 deposit (please bring cash). You can return it, or keep it as a souvenir.

What is Atyla ship?

A unique ship from Spain that sails around the world

Atyla is a classic sailing vessel built between Soria and Vizcaya in the 80s. It was built following the designs of the ships in the XVIII century. Its history is remarkable, check it out here.

Today, Atyla is the only Spanish wooden ship that regularly participates in international regattas of tall ships and sail training ships. In these regattas, Atyla often receives the prize for the most international crew.

Atyla has been all around Europe, and as far as Russia and Canada in the last 6 years. All of this happens as a charity foundation that promotes life skills like emotional intelligence and intercultural communication.
