Vikings were most famous for raiding villages and countries but they also managed to reach far destinations such as Canada and Greenland – way before Christopher Columbus claimed to discover America. They also established settlements in Ireland, Scotland, Iceland, Greenland and Newfoundland in Canada to name a few. Throughout the late 8th to 11th century, they managed to travel to 27 countries and their visited rank is in the top 12%. Not bad for travelling by the cold Northern seas!
