Vikings: Visit the legendary homeland of the Vikings

Denmark is the historical and spiritual home of the Viking. Danish ancestors explored, settled, traded, and plundered far and wide across the world during the period of history known as the Viking Age. Once feared in Europe for their raiding and pillaging, today's Vikings are a peaceful bunch who have long since traded in their long ships for bicycles. But if you want to get a taste of the old Viking culture and way of life, come to Denmark!
