Lofotr Viking feast, summer season – Hurtigruten land excursion

This is an optional land excursion which you can add to your Hurtigruten cruise booked through Fjord Travel Norway. The land excursion will appear during the tour booking process, with prices and details.

On the trip to Lofotr, the guide will tell you about the Viking Ages, the museum and how life was for the Vikings who lived here. Upon arrival you are invited in to experience the Chieftain’s house, which has been recreated in full size, and features exhibits of finds from the Viking age.

The Chieftain and the Lady of the house welcome you to join them for a real Viking feast in the banquet hall; a taste of the Viking age, with traditional food, costumes, singing and dancing in authentic surroundings. After the feast, served with home-brewed mead, you then travel by bus to Svolvaer, learning more about the history of Lofoten along the way before rejoining the ship.
