During winter, the Vikings make a sacrifice to ensure the return of the sun and the light. Outside, the northern lights may be flickering on the wide sky during autumn and winter. The Viking Chieftain´s house offers a perfect outdoor arena for watching the northern lights - the aurora borealis. During summer, the stories told will give you a closer connection to the Vikings of borg. The bright evenings offers a majestic view from the hills of Borg, giving you a glimpse into history as you gaze over the same landscape as the mighty, powerful Viking Chieftain did more than 1000 years ago.
