The Magic of the Arctic – Lofoten Islands

Lofoten islands is a unique place, where mountains, sea and famous Norwegian 'rorbu' houses compose outstanding landscape. All this beauty can be garnished with polar lights or Aurora Borealis, as it often happens in winter and we are going to be there at that exact time, to capture all colors of the solar winds.

Do go down to the sea to see and experience the viking ships! It's a 15 min walk, and you'll also get a beautiful view of the fjord once you reach the ocean. The museum is also interesting, of course, with actors playing vikings. Very enjoyable.

Lot of different activities to do. Not just an ordinary exhibition. You can sail with real viking boat, shoot archery, throw ax, etc. Cool place for kids!

Not worth visiting if you have seen any viking-museum or market before. The restaurant was bad. We saw one wild-boar very far in the opposite site of the fence. The parkinglot did not had any free space, so we had to queu for it

Hi Elema, we are sorry you have had a bad experience and did not like the Lofotr Vikingmuseum. It is a museum that maybe is slightly different than many other museums: more activities, more interactive learning, more appealing to all senses. Due to Covid-19regulations, we do not allow too many in the museum at the same time so we start with having control already at the parking lot. On some days, guests have to wait. This is for everyones safety. The wild boar are in their fence, that is correct. It is possible to walk around the fenced area. It is approximate 20 meters from one end to the other. We still hope you enjoyed the Lofoten holiday, welcome back another time!

Loved the long house, museum (+ film), the carvings and presentations inside the longhouse and the tasty food (stew). The gift shop sells quality articles too. The walk down to the Viking boat is nice and there is activities for kids. The blacksmith wasn't open while we were there unfortunatley. On the whole, a great place to visit!

I've been to this museum twice. Once as a child, and I absolutely loved it then, but as an adult the experience felt a bit lacking. Don't expect the same amount of content as other museums, and if you don't have kids with you (there are activities for them if you walk 1.3 km to another part of the museum), you'll probably be in and out of there in 30-60 minutes.

Thanks for the feedback. We value every input. The main part of the museum is the reconstructed longhouse. This is full of artifacts/replicas, craftwork, architecture and more . Vikings at work are happy to engage in all conversations regarding the life of the Vikings. "Lokes path" is a quiz that starts at the reconstructed longhouse and will bring you to the Viking ship harbour - that also offers some activities. Children love this - so does also many, many adults. We will keep working on creating more content. Thanks again for reviewing the museum and letting us know about your experience!
