Vikings – the true story

In connection to the premiere of season 5B of HBO Nordic´s hit series Vikings Vikingaliv offers an exclusive guided tour and mini exhibit covering the truth behind some of the characters.

Vikings has sparked a great interest in the viking age with characters like Lagertha, Björn and Ragnar. But did you know some of the characters we’ve gotten to know, love and hate throughout the years are based on both the Nordic sagas and real people?

Experience the thrilling story behind the characters through this 40 minute long guided tour. The tour was created by Vikingaliv’s guide and archaeologist Tora Larsdotter Andersson. Apart from the tour Vikingaliv also offers a mini exhibit on some of the characters and the somewhat real people behind them.
