Join us for an evening sailing

Enjoy a special high summers evening on the fjord, with oars and square sail - and the scent of wood tar in your nose!

Join us on a high summers evening sailing and have an atmospheric experience on Roskilde Fjord. We sail out from the Viking Ship Museum's harbour at 18:00 and return again at 21:30, just before sunset. Evening tours on Roskilde Fjord are very popular and are the perfect way to enjoy the long, bright summer evenings.

On the evening tour, you get an insight into the art of sailing with a square sail. Everyone on board actively participates in the sailing, both with rowing and when setting sail. Along the way, hear stories about the Museum's work and experiences with Viking ships. How the tour unfolds and where we will go, all depends on the weather. We plan a stop on land along the way. Participants are welcome to bring food or coffee.
