The Ultimate Guide to Lofotr Viking Museum, Lofoten, Norway

Lofotr is hands down one of our favorite museums! We’re not really huge fans of museums in general, they honestly tend to be kind of boring, but Lofotr is different. They have managed to make the past come alive in a fun and entertaining way while still being educational. And the fact that you can participate in activities like sailing on a real Viking ship makes all the difference and is a pretty unique and fantastic experience that you will never forget.
