The Viking Market at Foteviken

Regarding the Corona virus epidemic: We do not yet know how the summer of 2021 will turn out, but all games and competitions at the market will most likely be cancelled this year.

Welcome to the Viking Week and Foteviken Viking Market 2021!

During the Viking Age was this the site of a great summer market which, according to the Faroese saga was the largest in Scandinavia. Our modern-day Viking market also attracts many Vikings. You are all cordially invited to this year's market! Depending on how things develop during the winter and spring it may be a limited market in 2021, like last year, where some market activities are cancelled. 

The Viking Week (June 28 - July 4)

During craft days, you can take part out of many exciting things. Wrought iron, brick ribbon weaving, dying, Viking cooking, wood carving etc. are some of the crafts as will be demonstrated in place.
