Reykjavik is kicking off its first annual Viking Festival and that means plenty of wine and wenching for all! Or perhaps "lots of eating, drinking and merrymaking" is more appropriate? Whatever the case, for two days at least, the Vikings will return to Reykjavik in the form of a festival dedicated to the island's distant founders.
The first annual Viking Festival in Reykjavík - Ingólfshátí? - will take place this weekend, 13th and 14th of July 2013. The Festival was conceived, organized and facilitated by Gunnar Viking Ólafsson, leader of Einherjar. Admission is free and the festivities take place from noon to 6 pm both days.
After years of planning for a heritage celebration of Iceland´s Viking age founders, the residents and tourists of Iceland's capital city of Reykjavik will experience the exciting and historic first-ever Viking festival, to be held this year.
The setting will be Reykjavík's City Center Park, Hljomskalagardurinn, on the 13th and 14th of July, 2013.
