Program for Lofotr Vikingfestival 2022

David-Gonzles-Buenda-LVM2015-46

We are pleased to announce the Vikingfestival 3. -7. August 2022.

The festival's theme is in 2022 trade and cultural exchange. The theme has been chosen on the basis that the Vikings had contacts across cultures and several of our objects in the exhibition refer precisely to this.

We want to highlight trade and cultural exchange during the festival. Do you have a stand, activity, a lecture, or another program that can fit our Viking Festival - please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
