The biggest viking ship in the world, Draken Harald Hårfagre (Harald Fair Hair), named after the first king in Norway, is in Reykjavík for the next two or three days. It sailed in from Haugesund in Norway, where it was built, with a short stop in the Faroe Islands and Shetland. The ship was built in the years 2010-2012 and will travel from here to Greenland and then to Canada and the USA.
You can check out the ship between 16:00 and 18:00 and see how the vikings live on sea. Here are photos from when they were welcomed by guests and the choir, Linköpings Studentsångare, at the Maritime Museum yesterday.
