Lofotr Viking Festival 2023

The festival is an annual 5-day event involving vibrant presentations of Viking Age history. Vikings from home and abroad, markets, live performances, concerts, mock combat, games, and competitions – something for everyone, young and old.

The festival takes place by the Viking Ship Harbour where you will find contemporary buildings like the boathouse, lots of Viking tents, and beautiful natural surroundings. The first festival was organized in 2004. We aim to ensure high quality, authenticity, and enthralling content – for the audience as well as for the Vikings taking part.

When: August 2th - 6th

The theme of the festival: Food and Drink
