If you're in Detroit this weekend, don't worry, your eyes are not deceiving you. Yes, that's a Viking ship at the Detroit Yacht Club.

The Draken Harald Hårfagre has been visiting North America after it sailed from Norway to Iceland, Greenland, and then through the St. Lawrence Seaway to the Great Lakes.

Captain Björn Ahlander joined us today to talk about the ship's visit to Detroit on the Tall Ships Challenge return voyage.

To take a deck tour of the Draken Harald Hårfagre, you can head out to the Detroit Yacht Club on Saturday, Aug. 20 from 10-4 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 21 from 10-6 p.m.


Björn Ahlander is captain of the Draken Harald Hårfagre.
