This blast from the past is your invitation to step back in time and learn about the Viking ways and how the hardy Norse people lived off the land.
Your journey begins with a panoramic drive from Isafjordur to the old Viking village of Thingeyri. Walk through a recreated Viking area, learning about what is fact and what is fiction in the many stories you've heard about the famous Vikings. A short hike brings you to the old ruins of the Viking meeting place called a Thing -- the closest translation in English is 'parliament.'
Step inside the interactive Viking Museum for a chance to dress up in authentic hand-sewn Viking clothing, take photographs, drink Icelandic Viking beer, bake your own Viking bread, and explore the museum -- all part of learning more about Viking ways.
After your Viking experience, head back to Isafjörður.
Walking is required, mainly on paved flat surfaces, with some inclines and a few steps, along with a few gravel paths and uneven surfaces. Approximate distance covered on foot is one mile. Not advisable for guests using a wheelchair or for those with mobility limitations. It is essential that you wear warm, layered clothing in order to fully enjoy and participate in this excursion. Wear sturdy, closed-toe, non-skid walking shoes. Due to Ísafjörður's remoteness and the scarcity of professional guides, all guiding is handled by locals; some are not professional, but all have great experience in guiding and extensive knowledge of the area. Parents traveling with children under the age of 3 must rent a child's car seat from the tour operator; please see the tour staff on board.
