Take a trip back in time!
Craftspeople, fun and jesters, musicians, a hoard of battle ready viking warriors and people in viking clothes. Come and join a true Viking adventure for the whole family in Kvarnbo, Åland Islands.

The large Viking Market on Åland Islands is held every year in Kvarnbo, Saltvik on traditional soil. In the area there are several ancient remains and graves especially from the late Iron Age. New archaeological findings also indicate that Kvarnbo was a more important commerce hub than what was previously held.

The Viking Market is a festival for the whole family. You can enjoy everything from dance and music to fierce warriors engaging in viking style combat. At the market you can see craftspeople making beautiful articles for everyday use as well as art objects using ancient methods. The merchants offer textiles, pearls, forged products and leather work. The Restaurants Knarren and Boathouse serve good viking style food and drink. Younger Vikings enjoy the children's corner.

Why not also take a walk down to the Kvarnbo beach and look at the hand built Viking ship, made by Fornföreningen Fibula.
