Take part in history
An everyday experience from the Viking Age…
The ships are finally finished and set placed on water, it has been a long and hard winter. The longing to get out gets bigger and bigger as the days get longer and longer.
In the year 730 AD local king Øystein Halvdansson Fret and his men prepare for a larger expedition. The crops have failed and therefore there is almost no food. They are working hard to make the ship and crew ready for travelling. Row training, exercises in maneuvering a large boat, combat training, provisioning etc. There are many things that the servants must remember to do.
Today travel loving Norwegians are much like the Vikings. Vestfold has several unique discoveries from the Viking Age, Viking ship Osberg, many burial mounds and banquet halls.
Join us to experience what it was like to be a real Viking. Row along with the Oseberg ship, be challenged in a “viking battle” on Slottsfjellet, or sit down to eat a good meal in the Banquet Hall.
