The Vikings loved sports and competitions just like we do today. There were all kinds of games, organised competitions and events.

At the Viking Centre in Rosala you can try, for instance, the following activities:

  • Varpa
  • Kubb
  • Darts
  • Crocket
  • Knattleikr
  • Tug-of-war
  • Field labyrinth
  • Horse shoe throwing
  • Stilts
  • Balance log
  • Archery
  • Try on a Viking warrior’s outfit
  • Sword fighting with practice weapons

These are all activities that you can try on your own without a guide during the opening hours of the Centre. If you visit in a group of 8 or more, it is also possible to book a guide for more programs and activities. Read more about our programs here.

Rosala Viking Centre takes no responsibility for broken bones, lost limbs or bruised egos (or, in fact, anything).
