Very informative and interesting walk back in history. There is a souvenir shop and place to sit and eat (indoors) at the entrance of the village. Look out over the sea from the lookout point.

This place is amazing in my opinion. It's a working Viking village with many houses built using techniques found in archaeological digs. There were several 'actors/vikings' who were busy at Viking tasks including experimental archaeology. You can stay on site if you have a Viking...More
