Western Norway's largest Viking market!
Every year in June, the Viking Festival at Bukkøy is held, "Vikings" from all over Europe arrive. In the various tents there is work with traditional crafts, and many sell the goods they make here. In addition to traditional Viking food, there is ice cream and sausages on offer. See blacksmiths at work, hear Viking music or try different activities like archery, juggling or theater.
Karmøy is the Vikings' homeland and we invite you to Western Norway's largest Viking festival. In this way the municipality wants to consolidate Karmøy as a thing of the municipality, and show that Karmøy is a meeting place for friendship and cultural development.
All events are held at Avaldsnes and the Viking farm on Bukkøy. The garden features several reconstructed houses from Viking times, and buildings are helping to create the unique atmosphere of the festival.
