What you'll do

After a short bus trip to Tønsvika, you are greeted by me in my Viking gear. Together we hike up beautiful Tønsvikdalen to Tønsviking Middelaldertun, where our host and chieftain Jan Reidar greets us with hot and cold drinks by the campfire (or inside in bad weather). You will learn about the history of Tønsvika, and about the great Viking chieftains of Northern Norway in a historical atmosphere. There will also be time to look around Tønsviking Middelaldertun and learn about how Jan Reidar built the place all by himself! If the weather permits, we will take a showshoe hike uphill for a majestic wiew of the entire Tønsvikdalen. There is the opportunity to go sliding downhill in a friendly winter competition!

Meet your host, Tonje

Host on Airbnb since 2017
  • Identity verified
I am a 38 year old woman who lives in Tromsø. My greatest passion in life is Viking Reenactment, and I spend a lot of time creating my own Viking gear (clothes, weapons, tools, etc) and research Viking history, especially about the North-Norwegian vikings. Every summer I visit Viking markets all over Norway to learn even more and to teach Viking fighting to kids and adults alike.

Where you'll be

We will be hiking up Tønsvikdalen to Tønsviking Middelaldertun, a hidden pearl on the Tromsdalen mainland, located only 30 minutes from Tromsø City Centre. The entire Middelaldertunet is built by Jan Reidar and his father, in Viking style with ornate wooden carvings.
