Take Part as a Viking

If you can contribute with Viking-related handicrafts, relevant products for sale, activities, or anything else Viking-related, then perhaps you would make a good Viking at Lofotr Viking Festival?

As a Viking participant, you will need to have something to offer the festival’s guests and the other Vikings. Something like a seminar, activities, artist talk, a performance (concert, theatre, juggling, etc.), demonstrations of handicrafts, or a stall/booth. We offer space for your tent, a great atmosphere, lots of Vikings, and a big audience. Get in touch if you would like to participate!

As a participant you will:

  1. Help create a distinctive festival with unique experiences and atmosphere
  2. Explore the museum area with its reconstructed smithy, Viking ships, and boathouse
  3. Have the opportunity of taking part in various historical contests and/or training camps for warriors
  4. Learn new facts about the Viking Age or old handicraft techniques (or teach others your own)
  5. Enjoy lots of music, song, dance, and theatre performances
  6. Stay in the festival area’s scenic surroundings by the lake 
  7. To the participants present during the entire festival, we offer a Viking feast in the Chieftain's House
