The world’s largest Viking ship in modern times, the Dragonship Harald Fairhair, is now setting out on the hazardous journey across the North Atlantic. The ship, named after the king who united Norway in the 900’s, would have sailed from the Viking village Avaldsnes in Haugesund on Sunday, but had to wait for better weather.
The holidays are soon upon us and we’ll take this opportunity to share a bit with you about how
Vikings celebrated around this time of the year, and how that still influences the way we celebrate
here in the Nordic countries today. This time around we’ll do it through a short film to also thank
You all for the tremendous support we’ve received on Facebook with over 100 000 likes.
