Storholmrn is the perfect place to deep in the history of a viking village. You can play funny games, watch ancient workshops or make bread as they used to as well as do a boar rowing trip around the lake. It's really worth it!

Family oriented activities, such as baking your own viking bread an knitting a wooden basket. The vikings show off games, "fighting" and tell sagas. Great fun, the kids loved it!
