At Borg in Lofoten, the largest longhouse in the world of the Vikings has been found - and reconstructed. Upon entering the 83 meter longhouse, you embark on a journey more than an 1000 years back in time. In addition to the Viking Chieftain's house, the museum offers modern exhibition halls with archaeological artifacts, and the story of the finding and excavation of Borg. In the film theatre, we show a short drama-film. During summer, the Viking ship is moored at the seaside, 20 min walk from the Chieftain's house. June 15 - end August guests may participate in Viking activities, such as rowing the Viking ship and trying their hand at archery. All year, different Viking meals are being served, check web for more info. The museum is open all year - check home page for hours as it varies through the year. less

We’ll help you explore the history and culture of this amazing archipelago. We want you feel the excitement of the lights , as their thousands of ever­changing colours draw your gaze heavenwards. All year round, we offer services of highest quality. Our desire is to make our “travelling friends” find themselves completely at their ease with the strong arctic nature of Lofoten, independent of who they are, or what they are doing. We can try with only words, even if they’ll never be enough, to describe what our eyes see every day…but we want, above all, even if only for a day, that YOUR eyes photograph this amazing land…and whatever type of excursion you do, we are sure that you will remember it forever. Lofoten Lights & Nature is a small tour operator which, trough its long experience, wants to make your holidays in Lofoten unforgettable. less
