The smell of tar and bonfire greets you as you step over the threshold. Flickering light from oil lamps illuminates the beautiful craftsmanship, ornamentation, and architecture of the chieftain’s home. The chieftain and his wife invite us to enjoy an authentic Viking meal. Watch while the Vikings offer up a sacrifice to the Old Norse gods and pray for good health, prosperity, and safe sailing when the chieftain sets off into the world with his merchandise. You’ll get a genuine glimpse into the Viking Age, with traditional food, costumes, song, and dance. After enjoying a traditional Viking meal, which is served with mead – the drink of the gods – you’ll be able to look around the longhouse.
