Food and drinks - for individuals
During the Viking Age, the food cooked over an open fireplace would have consisted of fish, game, and meat from one’s own livestock. Additionally, corn, dairy produce, herbs and various types of plants were used in the preparation of food. The Vikings also commonly cultivated cabbage, flax, onions, nettles, and turnips.
Our Vikings serve food almost every day, all year round. Viking feasts are arranged almost every evening, in the Chieftain’s House. In summer, we also serve a warm Viking lunch (e.g. mutton broth or some other kind of soup) in the Chieftain’s House. In summer the Museum Café is also open, as is Skjeltersjåen Café near the Viking ship moorings.
Groups may order several different types of meals/Viking feasts, lunches and other types of food and drink all year round.
Travelling in time makes you hungry. For those who are too few to be classed as a group, we also have a number of alternatives in both the museum café (summer) and in the Chieftain’s House (every evening all year round, plus at lunchtime in summer). Groups of over 15 people are requested to contact us well in advance, we can then customise your Viking meal/event.
