Expedition America 2016

In May 2016 Draken Harald Hårfagre will leave her home port in Haugesund, Norway and sail off for a great challenge across the North Atlantic Ocean.

The aim is to explore and relive one of the most mythological sea voyages – the first transatlantic crossing, and the Viking discovery of the New World more than a thousand years ago.

The project will create cross-border meetings and inspire people to go beyond the horizon in a modern Viking saga.  Along the traditional route, the ship will pass historical  Viking settlements at Shetland, Faroe Islands, Island and Greenland.

Upon reaching the American continent,  Expedition America 2016 will sail on visting ports in Canada and USA.

The Vikings were accomplished navigators, artisans, traders and story tellers, but their greatest triumph was the ship they built.
