Viking Kidnap for Groups
These hijackings are organized and managed by artists dressed as Viking warriors and take place in a traditional setting fit for Vikings and guests. Set up for coach parties, they provide an adventure and welcome drink the Viking way! There will be singing and the opportunity to quench your thirst with Viking warriors offering "Mead" to drink - Viking Beer.
Visitors can additionally see local crafts and handwork from Iceland, Faroe Islands and Greenland.
The Viking Market in Hafnarfjörður is the oldest, largest and most important event of its kind in Iceland. Since 1995 Hafnarfjörður has been a playground of Vikings demonstrating many aspects of Viking culture, ships, cuisine, handcraft, storytelling, archery, games, music and battle demonstrations. Artists come from Europe and America to join locals celebrate the memory of Viking ancestors.
The markets are open between 13.00 and 20.00. In the evening there will be a Viking feast at Viking restaurant which stays open until 3am for a truly memorable night.
Discover new Viking heroes - tested by veteran Vikings and loyal Festival guests.
Fjörugarðurinn, the Viking Restaurant next door to the hotel, seats up to 350 people. It is open for dinner guests from 18.00 every day as well as lunch for pre-booked groups.
The emphasis is on the Viking Era and as you enter you step into the world of the past. The décor is Viking style and they offer a true Viking feast with traditional meals served in old-fashioned Viking-style trays.
During these famous feasts there is never a dull moment and guests can expect various treats and surprises offered by our singing Valkyries and Vikings.
Groups can book events where a Fjöru-chieftain crowns one guest as an Honorary Viking. The menu can, of course, be adapted on request, but they strongly recommend a three-course Viking dinner which includes a selection of hors d'oeuvre, delicious mountain lamb and skyr - a yoghurt-like dessert with fruit.
With this comes 'Brennivín' otherwise known as "Black Death" served in traditional lamb horns. You can also try "Mead" the real Viking drink as well as traditional Icelandic and Viking delicacies.
