Draken Harald Hårfagre is the largest Viking Ship built in modern times and will sail across the North Atlantic Ocean in the summer of 2016. The expedition is marked by a revival of one of the most mythological sea voyages – the Viking discovery of the New World.

On April 24th the world’s largest Viking ship, Draken Harald Hårfagre, set sail from her homeport of Haugesund, Norway to take on the challenge of crossing the North Atlantic Ocean, to explore the world as the Vikings did a thousand years ago. The route takes her from Norway to Iceland, Greenland, Canada and finally USA. Even though she is a great sailing ship, no one can predict the weather conditions along the way and the crew will stand trial for a real challange according to Björn Ahlander, captain of Draken Harald Hårfagre.
