Excursions and visits on board historic ship Atyla in Gijón

See the schedules and book your visit or your day trip here

IMPORTANT UPDATE: VISIT CANCELLED

With immense sadness, due to the delay in a bureaucratic process affecting the ship’s inspections, we won’t be able to start the sailing season on time, and consequently Atyla won’t be able to be in Gijón as planned. We’re extremely sorry about this.

We’re already working with Turismo Gijón/Xixón on organizing a new visit in 2023 if possible, or otherwise we will plan a visit in Easter 2024 with the same plan as we had for this year.

We apologize to anyone that can be affected by this change of plans. Everyone who had a reservation for either a visit, an excursion or an adventure trip will receive an email about this cancellation in the next days, and will of course be able to obtain a full refund.

Thanks to everyone who worked hard to make this visit possible, and everyone that showed interest in Atyla’s visit, we’ll see you all soon, and latest in Easter 2024.

The famous historic ship Atyla will be in Gijón during the Easter holiday 2023 with the collaboration of Visita Gijón/Xixón. This is your opportunity to see this astonishing ship closer than ever and even SAIL ON BOARD.

The ship is run by a charity, and all activities organized in Gijón are charitable, so apart from living a unique experience, you’ll be contributing to a good cause.

Join the Facebook event of the visit and participate in a giveaway of free Atyla t-shirts!

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.
