Overview
Details

Travel back to the age of the Vikings and discover what life was really like back in the day. Catch a glimpse inside the Viking kingdom and experience the creation of the kingdom of Norway.

The green landscapes hide fascinating stories, myths and legends about the famous Norwegian ancestors. The Viking age has contributed quite a lot to the society Norway has become today. Everyone knows many stereotypes about the Viking days, but behind the warrior masks hid skilled craftsmen and tradesmen, clever farmers and great explorers.

On this journey back in time, you will get a new and fresh insight into the seafaring Scandinavians. Visit unique locations where legendary leaders have walked and the first kings have left important traces. Avaldnes is Norway's eldest royal residence and was the home of Norway's very first king Harald Fairhair. In an underground well formation, you will find the source of all knowledge and at the Nordvegen history center, you will walk through Avaldsnes' fascinating history of Viking leaders and the magical world of Norse mythology.

On the reconstructed Viking farm surrounded by green forests, you will experience the Viking lifestyle. Have a look inside the Viking houses and travel back to this fascinating period to understand the Viking's daily life.

Duration: 4 hours.
