Take part in one of the most exciting activities of the Viking age; sail or row a Viking ship
The Viking ship Vargfotr is a replica of the well known Gokstad ship. This was found in a burial mound in Sandefjord, impressive 23,8 meters long. Our Vargfotr is a smaller copy.
From the Viking harbour, we sail in historic waters. The tour is being conducted by the «høvedsmann»; the Viking ship captain. If the winds are good, there will be sailing. If not, you will get to practice your skills as a rower – we depend on you and your group to row the Viking ship.
The boat trips takes place every day in the period from 15/6 to 31/8 and you can join the trips every halv hour. The first trip starts at 12:00 and the last trip of the day starts at 16:00/17:30 (depending on opening hours of the museum)
