The last registration date is 31st of July and the last payment date is 14th of August.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at marknad@fibula.ax .

You are welcome to sell your products, show your craft, give lectures, play, hold performances or just to live viking life for a weekend during this special year marked by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Viking Days will not differ much from the usual market, but there are some changes in service from us, the organizers.

Ferries

Because Covid-19 pandemic, the shipping companies, which usually sponsor the whole/part of the boat ticket for our visiting vikings, do not have the opportunity to sponsor for the Viking Days.
It is regrettable but the shipping companies have lost a large part of their income due to travel bans and lockdowns. They have also had to lay off a lot of their staff.

All visiting Vikings will book and pay the boat tickets for themselves.

You can already book tickets at the shipping companies.

Fees

Saltvik Viking Days is a smaller event and we as organizers have no requirements for visiting vikings other than a historically correct camp and clothes, we have decided to only charge a garbage fee of 30€/group.

Facilities

In the Viking village we have 5 toilets and 3 showers.
We will not have any portable toilets, which we normally have during the Viking Market, because the Viking Days will probably have less visiting vikings and visitors.
You can go down to Kvarnboviken and swim, that’s about 500m from the Viking village.
The dishing station will be available as usual.
The freezer at the dishing station will be running, where you can put your cooling blocks. IT IS NOT CONSIDERED FOR FOOD STORAGE.

Food 

All visiting Vikings are responsible for their own food during Saltvik Viking Days, but we will sell food if you do not want to cook all the food yourself.
We will not offer breakfast for visiting vikings. During the Viking Market you have the opportunity to book breakfast from us but it will not be possible during the Viking Days.
Instead, we will offer coffee and tea free of charge. It will be served at the Long House.

We will serve lighter foods on Saturday and Sunday which is called the Valkyrie Menu. Serving times are 11.00-18.00 on Saturday and 11.00-14.00 on Sunday.
