Every year, around the second weekend in June, there is a four-day Viking Festival at the Viking Farm, Avaldsnes. Vikings from around the world gather and set up their tents between the reconstructed buildings.
The event carries on the tradition from the Norse sagas when the royal estate at Avaldsnes was a meeting place for people from many countries, and a place of cultural exchange.
Meet craftsmen, traders, and sailors; watch weaponry demonstrations; listen to storytellers and musicians and make new friends!
