Family oriented activities, such as baking your own viking bread an knitting a wooden basket. The vikings show off games, "fighting" and tell sagas. Great fun, the kids loved it!

We had a ball listening to the Viking stories and music. We traveled with a 10 and 13 year old whole had a blast watching old Viking games and learning about Viking traditions. Even in the rain it was worth the hours drive from Stockholm!

What a great place to take my son. I loved feeling like I was stepping back in time. They had great activities (like dagger throwing! and bread making) and it was fun just to wander around.

A fun place for kids and adults. You get to learn lots about the vikings and also try out baking and other things like working with wool. They tell stories and do interactive genuine viking games. You can bring your own food, or eat there.
