Destination Viking Association



Destination Viking is a new concept for travel experience. Partners from a number of countries have come together to develop a borderless tourism destination focusing on the Viking world.
Quality is a keyword for Destination Viking – as a visitor you expect quality at every level, and we will deliver it.
Quality means quality of activities, quality of presentations, quality of workmanship, quality of sites, quality of food, quality of souvenirs, in short: quality experience!
Destination Viking has already involved partners both in the Scandinavian ‘home-lands’ of the Vikings in the Nordic countries as well in a number of the lands in the west where Scandinavians settled (the Isle of Man, Orkney and Shetland, Faeroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland and Newfoundland) and some of the Baltic Sea areas with strong Scandinavian impact during Viking times (Germany, Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Russia).
The partnership is open to new partners and new countries.
