Take Part as a Viking

If you can contribute with Viking-related handicrafts, relevant sales articles, activities or anything else Viking-related, then perhaps you would make a good Viking at Lofotr Viking Festival?

As a Viking participant you will need to have something to offer the festival’s guests and the other Vikings. Something like a seminar, activities, a talk, a performance (concert, theatre, juggling, etc.), demonstrations of handicrafts, or a stall. We offer space for your tent, Viking tents for hire, a great atmosphere, lots of Vikings and a big audience. Get in touch if you would like to take part.

As a participant you will:

  • - have a great opportunity to visit beautiful Lofoten
  • - help create a distinctive festival with unique experiences and atmosphere
  • - enjoy a great atmosphere before, during and after the event …
  • - experience the museum area with its reconstructed smithy, Viking ships and boathouse
  • - have the opportunity of taking part in various historical contests and/or training camps for warriors
  • - learn new facts about the Viking Age or old handicraft techniques (or teach others your own)
  • - enjoy lots of music, song, dance and theatre performances
  • - enjoy locally made fare
  • - stay in the festival area’s scenic surroundings by the fjord – free of tarmac and mechanical noise
  • - have easy access to nature experiences in the mountains or on the water: hiking, bathing or the experience of unique peace and quiet
  • - be a guest at a Viking feast in the Chieftain’s House, where we serve a good meal and offer you a pleasant time as a thank you for this year’s collaboration
