The Vikings Visit to Norfolk Postponed.


Due to the potential impact of Hurricane Florence, Draken Harald Hårfagre stopover in Norfolk, Virginia scheduled for Thursday, September 13th – Sunday, September 16th has been postponed.

Captain Björn Ahlander and the crew are analyzing current weather trends to determine the best path to continue our tour in Norfolk and other stopovers. Draken will stay in the port of Baltimore, Maryland during the storm.

Draken will continue to work with Nauticus to ensure visitors will have the chance to experience the world’s largest Viking ship. Additional updates will be provided at an appropriate time.  Click here for updates.

The Norwegian Viking Ship Draken Harald Hårfagre (Draken) will visit 14 harbors across the East Coast on its Expedition America: East Coast Tour 2018 — and Norfolk is one of them.

The Vikings were accomplished navigators, artisans, traders and storytellers. But above all, they were amazing ship builders.

Visitors will be able to take timed and ticketed tours of the world’s largest Viking ship and interact with its crew. Guests can also experience the Draken Village, which is free and open to the public.

The tickets cost $6 for children (ages 5 to 15) and $12 for adults. You can also purchase a family pack for $30, which provides entry for two adults and up to three children.

Once the Draken’s visit is rescheduled, click here to purchase tickets  or buy them on site at the Draken Village.

And check out this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity… The Draken is accepting applications now for public volunteer crew positions during the tour. If you’re interested,  apply here.
