Who doesn’t love a good sailing trip? They’re the ultimate sun and sea escapes, and we can’t see them going out of fashion any time soon. There are plenty of places where you can test out your sea legs – from close-to-home hops around European islands to far-flung odysseys.

No matter where in the world you choose to go, a few things are par for the course on a Topdeck Sailing trip: sun-drenched days spent almost permanently horizontal and staring up at perfect blue skies, swimming in out-of-this-world waters and making new (ship) mates as you explore fantastic new places together. Can we get an arrghh matey if you’re on board?

Why choose a Sailing trip?

Our Sailing trips are the perfect way to take in loads of amazing new destinations, from Europe’s best-known coastal hot-spots to towns off the tourist trail and hidden bays that Jack Sparrow himself wouldn’t even know about – and have fun on the way there too! And with our carefully planned, region-focused itineraries you can really get into ‘what lies beneath’ everywhere we visit.

Kick off those boat shoes, bag yourself prime position up on deck and catch some rays (not forgetting to take plenty of snaps to flood the ‘gram with, sorry not sorry). Or, tuck into something delicious: whether it’s freshly prepared on board by your lovely crew or at a local restaurant when we reach dry land, there are loads of delicious meals included on your trip.

At the end of a day of sunbathing and swimming on loop (or exploring the day’s stop) you can always head back to your en-suite cabin and spruce up for the evening – or chill out and peruse your pics. Oh, and as of next year, all cabins will have air-con – ideal for those balmy nights!

Sailing trips in the Med

So, which one’s right for me?

Hit up the summer party hubs of Croatia or Greece and shiver your timbers with the best of them. Days here are spent topping up your tan and the nights are spent showing it off, dancing from dusk till dawn. Or, if you’re after something a little more chilled, why not discover the pristine Turkish coastline: from turtle-spotting at the ancient sunken ruins of Simena, Kekova to paragliding at Oludeniz – there’s something for everyone.

For the best of both worlds, why not join us on our Summer Fun & Sailing trip? Starting in Paris and winding through some of Europe’s spectacular scenery (hello, Swiss Alps!) and passing through cities like Amsterdam, Prague and Rome, you’ll also take to the water for a few days of vitamin sea sailing the crystalline waters of the Greek Islands.

Or, for a Sailing trip with a real difference, where you’ll need both your Lederhosen AND your bathers, why not Sail to the Steins with us? We start by cruising the gorgeous coastline of Croatia, taking in everything from sleepy villages to the cultural hubs of Spilt and Zadar before making our way to Munich for the beer-fuelled jubilations of Oktoberfest! Prost!

There’s a big world out there, and 80% of it is covered in water. So? You’d better get exploring!
