Owner description: At Borg in Lofoten, you may experience the Viking Age in a living museum. Visit a full scale (83 meters long) reconstruction of the Viking Chieftain´s longhouse at Borg in Lofoten. The longhouse is reconstructed close to the original site. The architecture, the arts and crafts work, the handicraft demonstration, a richly decorated Gildehall (feasting hall) and the Norse mythology exhibition give you an insight into the Viking life. Archeological artifacts, films about the sensational finds on Borg, along with a 12 minutes long film can be explored in the exhibition halls nearby. At the seaside, the viking ship, the forge and the activity area is located. 15th of June - 15th of August we arrange extra activites such as rowing the viking ship, visiting the blacksmith, trying your hand at viking games. The activities are included in the entrance ticket. Every year in August, we arrange a 5 day viking festival. Market, theatre, concerts, handicraft demonstrations, fight shows and much more. The museum is open all year (winter 2 days pr week). For more information: lofotr.no
