Viking Market at Gudvangen
Vikingmarknad i Gudvangen
Gudvangen (Sogn og Fjordane county)
The name Gudvangen means “Gods place by the water” and in the Viking era it was an important market place and communication centre, and there have been several places of worship. The Gudvangen village is situated at the end of The Nærøy Fjord, Sogn og Fjordane, Aurland Kommune, Norway. The Kjelfossen waterfall, one of the highest in Norway, is located just to the southeast of Gudvangen.
Each summer, the village hosts the Viking Market, offering a spectacular Viking life celebration. Many various activities and experiences are arranged for children and adults. A special day is dedicated to the children’s market, and the visitors are involved into the world of Vikings during all the Festival, experiencing fighting, archery, theatre, concerts, Viking ship, fire shows, storytelling, historical ballgames, Viking wrestling and other animations. The market offers nice goods, and a combination of tastes and flavours of the traditional food.
Recent news: a permanent Viking Village is soon to be established at the site. The opening of the first structures is planned for May 2017. Please check the official web pages for updates!
