Norway: Home of Thor, the Norse god

Explore the land where the Legends of Thor were told…

Instead of heading to the cinema to watch Thor: Love and Thunder, why not visit Norway, the home to sacred archaeological locations where the Viking people, who worshipped Thor, are remembered? Thor might have become one of the most famous Norse Gods thanks to Marvel, but by heading to Norway, you might even learn more about the other gods, as well as Vikings!


Oslo is home to the largest ever Viking excavation, which is why it’s a must-visit if you’re interested in anything Viking-related. In Oslo, you can find The Viking Planet, a state-of-the-art interactive entertainment centre which opened in 2019. Using high-end film productions, ground-breaking virtual technology and a 270-degree cinema, you’ll be able to step back in time and experience truly Norwegian Vikings! Just a 1-hour drive from Oslo, you can also visit The Slottsfjell Museum in Tønsberg, where you can observe Norway’s 4th preserved Viking ship.

Before becoming the city we now know, Bergen used to be a Viking trading city called Bjørgvin, which shows how deep its Viking roots are! Sitting dramatically at the base of Ulriken (one of the seven mountains surrounding the city), is Alrekstad. This used to be the Norse King’s residence during the kingdom of Norway. Alrekstad is also the 10th century estate that hosted the Battle of Fitjar. To learn even more about these times, in Bergen, you can also do a Viking Heritage Walk, in which a guide shows you cultural heritage sites, and tells you all about the famous Norwegian King’s sagas. You can even take a Viking cruise from Bergen, which takes you to the legendary homelands of the Vikings, all around the countries surrounding the Baltic Sea.
