Meet your Viking guide, dressed in typical clothing from the Viking age. For a true experience, put on your Viking helmet and climb aboard the Viking bus, which will be decorated with scenes that visualize fearless Vikings battling and raiding.

Make the first stop at the 3 Swords Monument, where many brutal battles took place. Then continue on to several other historical locations of great importance. Explore the longhouses at the Iron Age Farm, and hear about the daily chores from 1500 years ago.
