Visit the Viking Farm

Visit the Viking farm May 14-18, 2018

Open 10:00 - 15:30.

Visit a real Viking farm, help out with the different jobs and meet all the animals: cows, horses, pigs, sheep, geese, chickens and cats. This time of year we have many curly lambs, and it's time to shear the sheep. Watch how it is done and how the Vikings make use of the wool.
