The Viking Ship – Faroe Island

As the last Nordic country without a full size viking ship, the Faroe Islands can finally look forward to the building of the Tune ship replica. The ship will be built in the old viking capitol Hov, on Suðuroy. There will also be built a boathouse.

The original Tune ship was found in Sarpsborg in Norway, and is currently being exhibited at the Vikingship museum in Bygdøy, Norway.

Currently there is no replica of the Tune ship.

The preliminary project is to start in 2017.

Destination Viking Association has already involved partners both in the Scandinavian 'home lands' of the Vikings in the Nordic countries as well as in a number of the lands in the west where Scandinavians settled (the Isle of Man, Orkney and Shetland, Faeroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland and Newfoundland) and some of the Baltic Sea areas with strong Scandinavian impact during the Viking Age (Germany, Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Russia). The partnership is open to new partners and new countries.
