Sailing trips on Roskilde Fjord

- Climb on board!

Board a Viking ship and get up close!

The Museum is the only place in the world where you can experience seeing 1000-year-old Viking ships, and then go directly out to the Museum harbor, where the full-scale reconstructed Viking ships lie moored at the quayside.

The Viking Ship Museum invites its guests to take part in unique sailing trips with either Viking ships or traditional Nordic boats, which are the descendants of the Vikings' ships.

Daily summer sailing trips

Every day until 30 September, visitors to the Viking Ship Museum can sail out on Roskilde Fjord in descendants of Viking ships.

» Few of the daily summer boat trips can be booked online, the rest will be sold day to day at the museum...
