Have you ever wondered how Viking life was in Iceland? Do you want to experience the authentic atmosphere of a Viking settlement? If so, you are in for a treat!
The Viking Village is a unique attraction that lets you explore a replica of a Viking village, built as a film set for a movie that was never shot. You can walk around the wooden houses with grass roofs, see intricate carvings and decorations and truly get lost in the fascinating times of the Vikings of old.
The Viking village is located on a stunning site at the foot of Vestrahorn, surrounded by dramatic landscapes and grasslands. You can enjoy the views of the ocean and the mountain, and take amazing photos of the scenery. You might even spot some wildlife, such as horses, birds or if you are lucky, the timid artic fox.
The Viking Village is open all year round, and you can visit it at your own pace. You just need to pay a small entrance fee (1.000 kr.) at the Viking Cafe, where you can also enjoy some delicious snacks and drinks. The Viking Cafe is run by the same family who owns the land and the village.
The Viking village film set finally fulfilled its purpose in 2021 when it was used as one of the shooting locations for the Netflix series The Witcher: Blood Origin. The magical atmosphere of both the Viking village and the whole Vestrahorn area are quite apparent throughout the series.
The Viking Village is a must-see attraction for anyone who loves history, culture, or nature. It is a great way to immerse yourself in the Viking era and have fun at the same time. Don’t miss this opportunity to visit one of the most unique places in Iceland!
