Outside the Lofotr Viking Museum

During the bus ride from Stamsund to Borg and the Lofotr Viking Museum, you will be introduced to the Viking Age and learn more about the museum and how the Vikings lived. After this you should be prepared to spend an evening with the Vikings.

At the Lofotr Viking Museum, you will find the largest house found from the Viking Age.  A full scale reconstruction of the house, 83 metres long and 9 metres high is built at Borg. Here, in the great hall of the Viking chieftain, you will be welcomed to the Viking banquet. Finds from the Viking Age are on exhibition in the house, and it is decorated for a feast. Meet Vikings in traditional costumes! There will be singing and dancing and you will be served in true Viking style.

For dinner, there will be lamb, vegetables, barley groats, cranberries, Viking bread, sour cream and butter. The Viking drink mead will be served with the food.

After a hearty banquet, the bus returns to Svolvær. Learn more about Lofoten’s history on the tour, while enjoying Lofoten’s magnificent landscape. Remember that it is dark for large parts of the winter, but if we are lucky we can enjoy the winter landscape under starry skies and moonlight.

What our customers say:

  • Thank you for assisting us with our trip to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kirkenes and the Snow Hotel. The arrangements you made for us were perfect. The lodging was comfortable and the excursions were fun. Tom and I rarely use the services of a travel company when we travel; you enriched our trip and made the planning easy.
