Viking Village

 

 

 

Explore with the Village and be prepared to see history in a very entertaining way! Walk among the Vikings, explore their unique crafts, learn about their livelihood.

 

Hear the clash of swords hitting chainmail and shields in our Viking battles performed by trained warriors. Learn where iron came from in Scandinavia and see hot iron forged into Viking Age items by blacksmiths.  Try your hand at Viking archery with hand-made longbows.

 

And see what’s cooking at the dye pots, but don’t ask for a taste! The Norse were very creative when it came to developing shades of color for clothing and, well, sometimes it was a very smelly process!

 

There's only one place to experience Vikings live in action, and that's at Norsk Høstfest.
