Learning and Activities

We are committed to helping people learn more about Viking and Old Norse culture and Alaska’s magnificent outdoors. Outside activities in our living Viking village invite you to immerse yourself and use all of your senses to experience how they lived. You will gain a greater understanding of what it means to be connected to the land and to your own power by participating in activities of the Old Norse civilization. Come to the wilds of Alaska and find yourself in our safe, fun, inclusive, educational setting.

Asgard Alaska will include a realistic Viking settlement, including a longhouse, longship, blacksmith, bakery, pit-house, poultry house and marketplace. Think of it like a living, outdoor museum and campground. Guests, who may choose to stay overnight in one of our authentic Viking cabins, will have an unforgettable experience to carry with them. Others may take advantage of our more primitive campgrounds while partaking of our evening and nighttime activities.

Cultural Exhibits

Cultural exhibits are at the heart of what we do. Watch a blacksmith forge an axe head or craft a helmet. See a baker baking traditional Viking bread. Watch the longboat as it goes out onto the lake. Listen to our storytellers bring history to life. Learn how Old Norse populations created textiles. Or cheer for your favorite Viking warrior as they square off against each other in time-honored games of skill and solo combat. 

As exciting as being a spectator is, it’s even better when you can be part of the action. Sign up for classes in blacksmithing, baking, axe throwing, and shield wielding. Above all, we want Asgard’s beneficiaries to become a part of the Viking tradition. Specifically, to learn and appreciate what it was like to live during the pinnacle of the Norse civilization.

Create Viking Art

Observe traditional crafts such as woodworking or metalworking by volunteers who enjoy sharing their methods and tools with others and learn how different fabrication methodology has changed over time.  

Learn how Vikings used their artistic skills to make everyday objects more aesthetic. Vikings mastered the art of relief carving and engraving. They worked in wood, stone, and amber, and their textile arts featured beautiful tapestries woven in vivid colors. Moreover, the Viking world was as vibrant as their infamous marauding. You can even take part in releasing your inner Viking through art.
