Work with ancient handicraft, feed and care for animals, work in our cafe and take care of our visitors. This may also include activities with children. Thus it is a big advantage if the volunteers enjoy working with children.
You all live together in a Viking tent inside the museum (Viking Village).
Please bring a sleeping mat and sleeping bag.
The Viking village is located about one hour north of Stockholm in the small village of Svanberga which is about 6 miles (10 kilometers) north of Norrtälje.
When you mention the word ‘Viking’ to anyone they will conjure up images of fierce warriors burning and slaughtering their way across Europe. But the Vikings had more sides to their nature, which is shown at Storholmen Viking Village, situated north of Sweden’s capital city Stockholm. Visitors are encouraged to take part in activities that demonstrate how everyday life was led in the Viking Age.
In Storholmen the Viking age never ends. Therefore, we try to keep the Viking age spirit which means we wear Viking age clothes during all times in the Village and avoid modern technology in open spaces. This creates a fantastic atmosphere!
Good English to be able to communicate with the other volunteers and the visitors.
