    The visit to Lofotr Viking Museum is approximately one hour.

Take part in a historical journey from Stamsund to Borg, where the Lofotr Viking Museum is located. Along the way, the guide will talk about what life was like for the Vikings who lived here.

The smell of tar and bonfire greet you as you step over the threshold. Flickering light from oil lamps illuminates the beautiful craftsmanship, ornamentation and architecture of the chieftain’s home. The chieftain and his wife invite us to an authentic Viking meal. Watch while the Vikings offer up a sacrifice to the Old Norse gods and pray for good health, prosperity and safe sailing when the chieftain sets off into the world with his merchandise. You’ll get a genuine glimpse into the Viking Age, with traditional food, costumes, song and dance.

After enjoying a traditional Viking meal, which is served with mead – the drink of the gods – you’ll be able to look around the longhouse. We’ll then take the bus to Svolvær and learn more about the history of Lofoten along the way.
