Here’s her –> blog <— !  She’s worked hard on a complete list of dates, even for markets in other scandinavian countries.

  1. Looks like they simply copy/pasted the list I spent a lot of time working out in January, and forgot to credit me for it? That way, they ended up including some events that are private meetings as well, and some that have not been announced elsewhere and have been cancelled, as I have updated my list continuously. Mine also includes events in the other Scandinavian countries, you’ll find the original here:

    • Oh dear, I had no idea! I found this via a google search. Credits needs to be given to the right person..! Tnx for letting me know, I’ve removed their link and added yours now.

  2. Hi,
    I’m hoping to go the the Borre marked in July, but I’m having a hard time finding prices for entry (not to mention a car and place to stay in Horten). I see the website has a form for being a viking participant, but is it alright for me to just show up and enjoy the market?

    • Hi. I haven’t really given all that too much thought, and I hope that it will be like last year as for prices (free if you wear viking clothing). You can just show up and enjoy the market-but I would advice you to fill out that form if you want to participate at the Gilde and stuff like that. Good luck with car and accommodation!

  3. Posts like this make me desperately want to pack my bags and move halfway across the world just to attend events like this.

    • There is no way I could go to all of them unless someone decides to sponsor me! Norway is a tricky country due to distances and such. I would recommend good company over a specific market, tbh. Good friends and warm clothes is all you need to have fun over here. (Borre is one of my fav markets, though)
