During the Viking Age, Gudvangen was an important place for trading. Gudvangen, by Nærøyfjord, is known as "the place of the gods. Nærøyfjord is dedicated to Njord, the god of trading and sailing.
"Njardarheimr" – dedicated to the Northern god Njord
In the Viking village of Njardarheimr, you will experience an authentic village that shows how the Vikings lived 1,000 years ago, when Gudvangen got its name. These are not actors in costumes, but "real" Vikings of all ages, who adopt the Viking Age as a lifestyle. They know their history and have unique knowledge about the Viking life, which they would love to share with you!
The food in the camp is prepared from traditional recipes with ingredients that were available in the Viking Age. Items for sale are handmade and genuine.
The Viking village is a place for memorable experiences, learning and fun activities. A place where you can interact with people who re-enact the past, all in accordance with historical elements.
Join in the Viking Experience, a guided tour of the village. You can also participate in axe throwing or archery, chat with the Vikings and try out some handicraft. An authentic Viking lunch is served in the food house.
