Lofotr Viking Museum in Borg features the largest Viking-era house ever found. The impressive 83-meter (272-ft) structure is reconstructed in full size, just off the original house site.

Come join a thousand-year journey at our “living museum”! You can partake in a Viking feast, where we offer you singing, dancing and a delicious meal. In summer you can row a Viking ship, shoot with a bow and arrow, and join other Viking activities. A fun, interactive experience for all ages!

Adjacent to the chieftain’s house, we offer modern exhibits of archaeological finds, the story of Borg, and a movie “The Dream of Borg”.

Every year in August, Borg hosts a five-day Viking festival featuring more than 100 Vikings from near and far, a market, game shows, games, competitions, lectures, theater, concerts and more. The festival is very family-friendly and popular among visitors and locals alike.
