Welcome to Lofoten’s living Viking Museum

In the heart of Lofoten, you can travel 1000 years back in time and experience the Viking Age in an active and vibrant environment. At Borg you will find the world’s longest reconstructed longhouse. Smell the tar and fire, hear the local Norse stories, learn about crafts and experience how people lived in the Viking Age. Spend a day with us and have an unforgettable experience.

Walk in the footsteps of the Vikings and explore our fantastic outdoor area, surrounded by magnificent northern Norwegian nature. Wander along old paths down to the harbor where the Vikings sailed with their Viking ships. In summer you can sail or row with the Viking ship as long as the weather permits. During the autumn, the Viking ship will be docked. Try axe throwing, bows and arrows or drink a good cup of coffee in Skjeltersjåen. On the way down to the harbour, you can see a number of different livestock that existed during the Viking Age.

In our exhibition you can see the archaeological artifacts and hear about how the excavation started.

Learn about the Viking age, about Borg as a chieftain and power center, and how the world’s longest longhouse was found and excavated. The exhibition is divided into three rooms and the tour takes place with your own smartphone that connects to our audio guide system – then you get access to different audio tracks with information, and choose which ones they want to listen to. If you do not have your own phone, you can borrow an audio guide that is handed out in the ticket island.
