Lofotr Viking Festival

The festival is an annual 5 day event involving vibrant presentations of Viking Age history. 100-150 Vikings from home and abroad, markets, live performances, concerts, mock combat, games and competitions – something for everyone, young and old.

The festival takes place down by the Viking ship moorings where you will find contemporary buildings like the boathouse and smithy, lots of Viking tents and beautiful natural surroundings. The first festival was arranged in 2004. We aim to ensure high quality, authenticity and enthralling content – for the audience as well as for the Vikings taking part. In 2017, about 8000 people visited the festival.


Always in August. In 2019: 7-11 August.
