The wander around this village was short but sweet. Filled with a dozen or so recreated houses, staff in costume, baby birds nesting in houses and roaming chickens it was definitely a novel...

Very well explained and arranged. Having visited this place many times over the years, is great to see it go with the times. Quite busy in the Viking village, and the summer market is truly worth a visit. The "vikings" explain there trade in several languages, impressive.
Super interesting. The audio guide is very good and easy to use. My younger kids had fun as well as the adults in my party. The walk to the reconstructed town was beautiful and not to far. The staff was nice and helpful.
