Vikings at Årsunda

2 Comments

This April our group visited the vikings at Årsunda and their event “Vårblot”. They have such an amazing site with a viking house and an open area for tents and a market. I really liked their efforts in keeping all modern things hidden away, water posts, cleaning areas, car parking- everything was hidden away so the experience was really 100 % viking. I was pretty sure I already had post about Årsunda, but apparently I only posted some photos of friends before, so here’s more at the actual site and what we did.

Making breakfast and coffee is sometimes the most important…

Hanging out, eating, drinking and braiding hair. That pretty much sums up our weekend.

Digging a ditch, or hiding something?

The site was completely “all-viking”, until Sunday when we practically packed away the camp while sitting in the car. I like sites where the distance between packing-the-car and inside-the-tent are shorter than my belt…

Camping and market place

They also have an autumn event, so in a couple of weeks we’re going viking again down south 😉
