The Viking market in Saltvik Kvarnbo on July 28–30th will propel you right into the world of the Vikings.
Come and meet modern Vikings from Swedish, Finnish, British, German and Polish Viking associations. Viking-style songs and music alternate with weapon games and training in the art of combat.
You will also find craftspeople at the market: leather tanners, blacksmiths, jewellers and silversmiths who make beautiful articles for everyday use as well as objects d’art using ancient methods, and of course a large number of sellers of other arts and crafts, textiles and home-baked bread.
The food is typically in the style of the Vikings and there are plenty of excellent dishes to choose from. The Café Knarren is located inside the Viking village. It sells light meals and drinks such as coffee, beer and wine. The Knarren is open during the Viking market till 12 pm. If it gets hot wearing a Viking tunic, it’s good to know that it’s just a 500-metre walk from the Viking village to the beach.
The tickets can be purchased at the entrance (cash only) or in Mariehamn at Citytipset on Torggatan 6 and at the Tourist Office on Storagatan 8.
