This tour is operated by Destination Tromsø. Join us on journey back to the Viking Age at the Tønsviking Middelaldertun site.
The journey starts in Tromsø city center where you will be picked up and driven to the mainland where your Viking adventure will begin. After a short drive, we will leave our vehicle behind and go on for a lovely, 1 kilometer hike in the wilderness.
At the end of the path you will enter the estate. Centered on an open courtyard, you find five large buildings, built according to centuries-old Viking, Medieval, and Sámi techniques. The master builder of the homestead will welcome you to his world, and tell you about his decades-long project, inspired by the ancient lifestyle and traditions of the people of the North. You will even get the chance to hone your Viking skills by participating in axe-throwing and archery. Be ready to get inspired and travel back in time with us!
