It has been a thousand years or so since Leif Eriksen arrived in North America and landed at the northern tip of Newfoundland. This summer the Vikings will be back in the form of the Draken Expedition. These modern day Vikings are recreating the voyages of their ancestors in the largest Viking style vessel to be built in modern times. The Draken Harald Harfagre is following the traditional northern route via Iceland and Greenland before stopping in Newfoundland and then heading up the St. Lawrence.
