Viking Experience

Meet the Vikings. Smell the tar, taste the food, feel the history. The Vikings have been awaiting you for more than 1000 years. Experience the Viking age, going direct from the pier.

A short drive through rich, rolling farmland brings you to the Lofotr Viking Museum. Built around the discovery of the largest Viking longhouse ever found, the centerpiece is a reconstruction of that longhouse. Oil lamps flicker, smoke curls up from the fireplace, statues of the old gods stand among intricate wood carvings and walls hung with furs. Craftspeople weave, work leather and carve.

It's only the flash of cameras that remind you you're still in the present. And because the objects in the longhouse are replicas, you can get a little bit closer to the past by donning a helmet, picking up a sword, and playing Viking to your heart’s content!

The museum's other building houses the archaeological finds from the site, as well as an exhibition on the site's discovery, the souvenir shop, and a café.

One of Lofotens most famous museums
