Viking Hiking half day 25/7: morning
July 25, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm£20 - £30
Half day Viking Hiking: Starts from the centre of Orkney’s Viking capital Kirkwall. During the walk to Scapa beach, you will hear about why the Vikings chose to settle in Kirkwall and what they did there.
Our walk traces the route that the Vikings took when using the natural harbours at either side of a narrow isthmus: The great Scapa Flow to the south and the sheltered Peedie Sea to the north.
When arriving at Scapa we are met my our outdoor cook and ropemaker Mark, who joins Ragnhild in giving some insight into everyday life in Viking Orkney. Around the campfire we enjoy storytelling, play a Viking game, and learn Viking skills such as cooking and tablet weaving.
