Join us on a historical journey from Stamsund to Borg, where the Lofotr Viking Museum is located. During the bus ride there, the guide will tell you what life was like for the Vikings who lived here. Upon arrival, we’re invited in to look around the Chieftain’s house, which has been recreated in full size. This reconstruction features exhibits of artifacts dating back to 500 AD, which is when the original house was first established. 

The Chieftain and the Lady of the House will then invite us to join them for an authentic and delicious Viking meal in the banquet hall. Here, you’ll get a real taste of the Viking Age, with traditional food, costumes, singing and dancing. After the meal, served with mead, you’ll travel by bus to Svolvær, learning more about the history of Lofoten along the way before rejoining the ship.
