Sailing trips on Roskilde Fjord
- Climb on board a Viking ship!
Every day fra May 1st to 30th of September we offer daily sailing trips from the Museum harbour.
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 harbour, 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 descendents of the Vikings’ ships. Viking ships were originally used for war, trading, fishing and transport during short every day trips or on longer voyages to foreign shores.
From 1st May to 30th September, we sail out on Roskilde Fjord everyday with pre-booked corporate groups, school children and international group-visitors – and no doubt we also have an offer that suits you and your group. Take your family or friends with you for a special experience in an historical context, but with modern safety standards.
1th May to 30th September we offer daily one-hour sailings. The tickets are sold following the principle 'first-come' from 10:00 o'clock on the day of the sailing as additional tickets to the entrance ticket.
Entrance to the Museum is included in the price when booking sailing tickets from home.
The Museum’s boat collection of reconstructed Viking ships and other traditional boat types from the North, are an integral and active part of our education and outreach program. Many of the boats were built at the Museum’s own boatyard and a sailing trip is the perfect way to complete your visit.
