In this multimedia presentation, bestselling author Bill Arnott shares stories, reading, and photos from his trek around the northern hemisphere in the wake of Scandinavian explorers. Granted a Fellowship at London’s Royal Geographical Society following his expedition, Bill shares firsthand experiences from his excursion. It’s maritime exploration blending real time encounters with history and humour. This is an armchair travel adventure like no other!


Seattle’s Northwest Danish Association writes, “Bill has a way with words. He brought our attendees with him right into the scenes of his memoir Gone Viking: A Travel Saga.”


While CP Review Magazine states, “Gone Viking: A Travel Saga is definitely one of the best reads of the year.”
