Summer sailing trips on Roskilde Fjord
The sailings will return on 1 May 2023.
Everyday during the summer from 1 May to 30 September you can experience what it was to be a Viking on board of one of the Viking Ship Museum's traditional Nordic boats, which are the direct descendents of Viking ships. Everyone on board takes part in rowing, setting the sail and other 'sailor's work'.
At the Viking Ship Museum you can go directly from the encounter with the 1000 year old original viking ships on exhibit in the Viking Ship Hall to the Museum Harbour where you can go on a sailing trip in one of the viking ships' direct decendants - the traditional nordic wooden boats - which now 1000 years later are still built according to the same principles and methods as used by the vikings. And Yes - we also use the very same energy source to move forward - oars and sail and the muscle power of the crew.
- The trip takes approx. 1 hour, including handing out life jackets and an introduction to the ship and rowing technique.
- As a participant, you are part of the ship's crew and will therefore participate actively on board by rowing and setting sail.
- Every sailing trip is lead by an experienced sailing instructor.
