Approxomately 20 minutes walk from Nordvegen history centre, through beautiful cultural landscapes, on a small forested island, you will find the Viking farm. The Viking farm is reconstructed based on archaeological finds made in Rogaland. The atmospheric and traditionally built surroundings will give you an instant feeling of being back in the Viking age.
The Viking settlement is situated in beautiful natural surroundings on the island of Bukkøy and is accessible on foot with a 10 minute walk from St. Olav's Church.
Here it is possible to see and experience how the Vikings lived. Every aspect of the day-to-day life of the Vikings, from work to celebrations including farming, fishing, handicrafts, commerce, art and culture are on display here. Many buildings typical of Viking times are re-constructed using original techniques and of special interest is the granary and round house from the pre-Christian era. The other buildings are replicas from around 900 AD. Adjacent to the settlement is a pier with a capacity for large boats complete with service building including modern toilet facilities. The Viking Hall is also available by private rental for diverse social arrangements.
