Lampedusa Cruises

Get on board the Northern refugee boat

19 August - 2 September 2016 - Harbour Promenade at Knippelsbro, Copenhagen.


Join the Lampedusa Cruises Association on a lovely trip in the waters of Copenhagen with food, music and swimming.

Get on board on Alhadj Djumaa, the Worlds’ most Northern refugee boat, alongside its crew of refugees.

Alhadj Djumaa is a fishingboat from Egypt. It is 11 meters long and 3,80 meters wide. It left Egypt in 2013 heading towards the Italian island Lampedusa. When the boat was stopped by the Italian coastguard, they registered 282 passengers, mainly from Ethiopia and Eritrea.

It is a well functioning little motorboat and a symbol of global diversities. Join us on a sailing for all of those who want a little taste of the good life.

The association Lampedusa Cruises is founded by Fix&Foxy.
