Trip Planner: Europe / Norway / Northern Norway / Nordland / Lofoten Islands / Vestvagoy / Bostad / Lofotr Viking Museum
Join a Viking feast, row an authentic Viking longboat, or learn how to throw an axe at Lofotr Viking Museum. Established at the site of a Viking village excavated during the 1980s, the museum features a chieftain's house, a blacksmith's forge, and a wide outdoor area crossed by gravel walking paths. Two full-scale replicas of the Gokstad ship are anchored on the lake. See original handicrafts as well as historical reenactments of Viking life. The smell of the bonfire and tar, and the stories told by costumed actors, will transport you back to ancient times. The new building houses two exhibition halls and a cinema. Audio guides are available in six languages. Plan your Lofotr Viking Museum visit and explore what else you can see and do in Bostad using our Bostad trip builder app.

Really beautiful place and a lot of things to see with fantastic people. I was also able to talk about Norse mythology with one guy and everybody was really friendly. Sadly the Viking ship replica wasn't on the lake but in the dock building which was a bit sad but very nice place where you can also find nice souvenirs :)
