    Well this happens right here in my country. If any of you want more information on this, and how to get to sail in Vikingships you can visit the site of the Vikingshipmuseum here.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    A Irish minister that attended the ceremonial take off asked them please not to burn the place down when they got there.

    Well that's some old links. I'm sure they have worked at some point.

    Here is the link to the museum

    Somehow a trip on that ship interests me. What gets me is that it sets sail for a month and a half ending up in Dublin. So where do passengers sleep and eat? Maybe they dock at a seaport each night and have their evening meal and breakfast on land where they stay. I looked around the website for prices and stuff and it seems I have to write to a booking agent. They give very little information on the boat trip itself.
    I probably wouldn't ever go but it seems like it would be a very worthwhile trip and something I can say, "I did it."

    This is a special trip, like a science project, to see how a trip across the North Sea would have been for a Viking back when they actually did those raids in England. So it's not for all.

    However the museum has many ships where you can fx. just get a trip around on the water when you visit the museum. That cost around $10 on top of the ticket for the museum.
