Sail like a Viking on this tour from Reykjavik’s Old Harbor around Reykjavik Bay in an authentic replica of the Gaukstad ship from 900 AD. This is a unique experience for sailing enthusiasts, history buffs and Viking fans alike. It’s also the perfect way to get off the island and feel the wind in your hair!

You’ll feel like a true Viking as you set sail. You'll be accompanied by a crew consisting of Vikings and up to 12 passengers 1 - 1 1/2 hours on the Reykjavik Bay. Private tours are available upon request.

You will learn the Viking way to navigate on sea and how to maneuver the sail like Ingólfr did when he settled in Reykjavik in 874 AD. Or you can imagine yourself to be Kjartan Ólafsson, the hero of the famous Laxdæla saga, who sailed from nearby Breiðafjorður Bay and journeyed to Norway to seek his fortune, bringing back many fine gifts from the king himself.

The Gaukstad ship, from which this replica is made, was discovered in Norway in 1880. The original is an excellent example of a trading or transport ship from the faraway Viking past, built of strong oak which stood the test of time. Originally, it had room for 32 oarsmen and could reach speeds up to 12 knots on the open sea.

While you are on the water, be sure to look over the nearby cliffs and islands for the distinct orange beaks and black-and-white feathers of puffins. Cast your eyes over the waves to spot whales and other marine life breaking the surface. It is easy to imagine how sailors in the Viking Age would have welcomed these uplifting sights after many days at sea.
