The Viking Festival 2023

27 July 2023

In less then a week, this year’s Viking Festival will be at Lofoten Viking Museum. The Viking Festival runs from 2nd-6th of August and we look forward to seeing you there.

We have many great people who come to the festival to create a good atmosphere, entertainment and share their knowledge. Look forward to great music by Kjell Braaten Music, great entertainment with battle shows by Vikverir, and Olaf Skjeggelaus with Viking School days looking for new recruits who will learn and fight. If you want to learn more about Iron Age cooking, Edita Nurmi will have great demonstrations.

Not least, there will be market stalls and sellers who can tempt you with goods from near and far!

We can’t wait!
