    The visit to Lofotr lasts approximately one hour.

Today, we’ll visit the Lofotr Viking Museum, a reconstruction of the largest Viking building ever found. Here, you can see artifacts dating all the way back to 500 A.D., which is when the original building, the Chieftain’s house, was established. It was inhabited until around 900 A.D. The rebuilt version faithfully recreates the Viking diet, lifestyle, and religion.

After looking around the longhouse and the exhibits, the Chieftain and the Lady of the House will invite you for an authentic Viking meal in the banquet hall. Watch in awe as your Viking hosts make sacrifices to the Norse gods, praying for good health, prosperity, and that the sun will return to prevent Ragnarok, the end of the world. After the Viking meal, served with traditional mead, you’ll travel by bus to Svolvær and rejoin your ship.
