Last year’s successful Vikings drinking horn program returns, giving thousands of horn-shaped beer vessels to eager and thirsty fans.

VIKINGS LONGSHIP – DOWNTOWN / GASLAMP DISTRICT Let fans conquer San Diego aboard a Vikings Longship, driving through Downtown, Gaslamp Quarter and sailing the harbor.

• The boat will offer fans free stops to select Gaslamp locations, with fans receiving a Vikings Drinking Horn at the conclusion of the ride. Exact stops TBA.
• Select fans will also have a chance to win a sunset cruise aboard the Longship with the cast of Vikings.
