What happens in December 2019
In December in Lofoten, it passes into the polar night season when the sun goes below the horizon at the start of the month. Inside the longhouse with the Vikings it is cozy and warm, and listening to our guides can bring you backwards in time. At this time of year, it is extra atmospheric to join the Viking Feast in the evening. Open Wednesdays and Saturdays until 22nd of December.
