Eastern Norway Vestfold og Telemark SANDEFJORD

Sandefjord Viking Park

  • Strandpromenaden, Sandefjord
  •  /  km From You

At Sandefjord Viking Park, you can follow along and even participate in the construction of an archaeological replica of the Gokstad ship.

Just outside the town center you will find Gokstadhaugen where the famous Gokstad ship was found in 1879. Of the four Viking ships found in Norway, three have been found in Vestfold.

The Oseberg Viking Heritage Foundation has set itself the goal of making copies of all of these. Previously, Oseberg Viking Heritage has made an archaeological replica of the Oseberg ship «Saga Oseberg» and an interpretation (too little left of the ship to make a replica) of the Klåstad ship «Saga Farmann». Now it's the biggest of them all, the Gokstad ship, which is next.

In the period of five to six years, anyone can follow and / or participate in the construction of an archaeological replica of the Gokstad ship. Centrally located in both Sandefjord and Tønsberg there are construction activities.

Right next to the famous Whaling Monument in Sandefjord, there is a landing place for large oak logs to be split and chopped into ship planks. Ship parts will be produced here. All work will be done with the same kind of tools and old techniques from the Viking Age. Here you can learn old traditional crafts.

The ship parts will be transported from Sandefjord to Tønsberg by Viking ship. In Tønsberg, where the Viking shipyard itself is located, the parts will be further processed and mounted on the ship. Here you will also have the opportunity to follow and participate in the construction down on "Vikingodden" in the middle of Tønsberg harbor.
