The Last Vikings
2013

A thousand year after the Scandinavian Vikings looted large parts of Europe, their long lost culture is still, for many, a source of fascinations. Each summer hundreds of people gather at Gudvangen in Norway to live as the Vikings did.

They come from Scandinavia of course, but at times they come from as far as France or even Turkey. Settling their camp in a fjord, all items of clothing, tools and weapons have to be authentic. Under the command of Georg Olafr Reydarsson Hansen, the Vikings then live a traditional life: making fire with flint stones, practising the Viking martial art called Gilma and gathering around a bonfire at night to listen to stories and legends about Odin and Thor.
