The Vikings have conquered Hollywood and are now returning home to Norway. Join us and meet the Vikings!
With the recent hit series like The History Channel’s «Vikings» and the BBC’s «The Last Kingdom», the popularity of all things Viking has exploded. We have embraced this popularity and will launch our brand new Viking tour in May 2016.
Historically correct, with a touch of Hollywood – The Viking Tour will give you the complete picture of the Scandinavian ancestors. Warriors yes, but they were also traders, explorers and great artists. The Viking Tour will bring back the Viking kingdom and its fascinating myths and legends.
