Viking feast at Lofoten

Enjoy an exotic, historic Viking evening! 

 

At the Lofotr Viking Museum the largest Viking building ever found has been recreated. The original Chieftain’s house was established in about 500 AD and was inhabited until around 900 AD, and the rebuilt version exhibits finds from this era. The Chieftain and the Lady of the house invite you to join them for a real Viking feast in the banquet hall.

 

Experience the magic and excitement as they make sacrifices to the Gods, praying that the sun will return to avoid Ragnarok, the end of the world. After the Viking feast, served with home-brewed mead, you will travel by bus to Svolvaer and rejoin the ship

The Northern Lights:

The Northern Lights - nature's own light show - are solar winds that meet the atmosphere in a zone around the magnetic North Pole, forming arches, waves and curls of light moving across the sky, with sudden rays of light shooting down from space.

The Northern Lights are visible between November and March when the sky is clear, depending on the Northern Lights activity.

 

The Arctic city of Tromso offers a maximum of Northern Lights activity, ideally located in the middle of the Northern Lights zone
