Spring is coming and the icy seas are breaking up. You can ride the waves as the ancients did (yes!) at The Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde. It is the only place in the world where you can go sailing in an actual Viking boat (the sailing season is from May 1 to September 30). It’s located in the historic city of Roskilde, just 30 minutes west of Copenhagen by train.
Roskilde is the former capital of Denmark and contains a beautiful fjord (body of water) that was used to sail out into the open sea and even over to Ireland. You can in fact now arrange to part of small groups that make that same trip or you can go out for just a day. Inside the museum you will see actual ship recovered from the bottom of the fjord where they were often sunk to impede enemy invaders.
If you would like us to include this day trip on an itinerary for you, let us know.
