Meet the Vikings on Lofoten Islands

On the trip to Lofotr, the guide will tell you about the Viking Ages, the museum and how life was for the Vikings who lived here. Upon arrival you are invited in to experience the Chieftain’s house, which has been recreated in full size, and features exhibits of finds from the Viking Age.

The Chieftain and the Lady of the house welcome you to join them for a real Viking feast in the banquet hall; a taste of the Viking Age, with traditional food, costumes, singing and dancing in authentic surroundings. After the feast, served with home-brewed mead, you then travel by bus to Svolvaer, learning more about the history of Lofoten along the way before rejoining the ship.

What our customers say:

  • We just recently completed the Tromso, Northern Lights & Arctic Coast tour. I am writing to say what an amazing tour we had. Everything ran smoothly without an issue, the accommodation was fantastic and the tours were brilliant. We cannot fault the package at all. I would also like to thank Franziska and Lene, they both were fantastic in answering all my questions promptly, whilst booking the tour. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable holiday!

  • I wanted to thank everybody. We had a wonderful trip. Everything went well and fortunately we had the chance to see the lights while on the cruise. All my friends in Turkey would like to go on a similar trip. So I will be in touch with you. Thanks again and best wishes to all of you.

  • 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.
