Guests and families can visit it and spend time there, having a variety of activities such as arrow shooting, strong hold fights, handicraft workshops, fight and competition events and much more. Village needs constant attention and work to keep it ready for visitors and to develop further. Both in summer and winter there are many tasks to be done and volunteers are invited to help these works.
Furthermore, good friends of the Village are Fire Artists community, who organize their trainings and events there. Fire Artists Association was founded to raise awareness of Fire arts, to offer everyone a possibility to learn and perform with any kind or type of Fire Arts. They also promote standards of Fire safety for Fire artists and cooperate with local rescue department. Fire Artists Association will have a little Festival in Vikings Village this winter.
