The Chieftain and the Lady of the house invite you to join them for a real Viking feast in the banquet hall. And a Viking feast is not complete without mead. During winter, the Vikings made a sacrifice to ensure the return of the sun and the light. Experience the magic and excitement as they sacrifice to the Gods, praying that the sun will return to avoid Ragnarok, the end of the world. Outside, the northern lights might be flickering over the sky. The Viking Chieftain's house offers a perfect outdoor arena for watching the wonder of the northern lights.
