Take part in a Viking feast on the fabulous sandy beach of Scapa just 2 miles south of Kirkwall. Food, storytelling, crafts, games, fun.

Join Orkney Time Travel for a Viking Feast on the Beach at the fabulous sandy beach of Scapa just outside of Kirkwall. Living history guided tour with historical food, storytelling and activities around the campfire.

There will be a warm basic meal. Together, we cook over open fire and eat the Viking way. And drink from a drinking horn, naturally. You will also get the opportunity to bake your own Viking bread and make your own butter to go with it.

When arriving at Scapa you will be met by a Viking expert and storyteller, and an outdoor cook and craftsman, both in costume, who together give insight into everyday life in Viking Orkney. Around the campfire you will enjoy storytelling, play a Viking game, and learn Viking craft skills.

We meet at the car park by the beach toilets at Scapa.
