A Super Super Saturday

21 March 2024

Super Saturday on March 16th was an unforgettable experience for both young and old!

Meieriet library and Lofotr Viking Museum arranged Super Saturday for the 2nd time at Lofotr. An exciting program was set up where the participants were challenged to help the housewife, Åshild, get her voice back. It had been stolen by Loki, the god of trickery and pranks! The children also got to meet several other characters such as the powerful chieftain, Olaf Tvennumbruni as well as the gods Odin and Loki.

The children were divided into two groups, representing Jotner and Æser, and were allowed to compete against each other before there was finally peace between the groups. After peace was a fact, everyone could make beautiful necklaces with leather amulets they got when they arrived, as well as explore the art of making runic amulets in wood.

The event was a great success for both the young people and the parents who participated. As many as 60 people joined in the fun! It was a pleasure for the staff to be part of this exciting day, and we are already looking forward to the next time we will collaborate with Meieriet library.

Super Saturday is usually at Meieriet and we think it is incredibly nice that we have now managed to create some events here with us at Lofotr. Next time the Viking goes on an expedition to Leknes! We hope for continued fruitful cooperation in the future.

Thanks to everyone who participated? we are already looking forward to the next Super Saturday collaboration!
