Vikings settled in Iceland during the late ninth and early 10th centuries, drawn by its uninhabited expanses and fertile land. Despite its harsh climate, they established thriving communities, primarily from Norse and Gaelic origins.

They used longships to navigate treacherous waters, arriving on Iceland's shores to seek new opportunities and freedom from centralized rule. These settlers built farms, established trading networks, and developed a unique legal system known as the Althing, one of the world's oldest parliaments.

Despite challenges like volcanic eruptions and limited resources, the Viking settlers adapted to their new environment, laying the foundation for Iceland's enduring cultural heritage.

Viking World has three exhibits: The Icelander, Vikings of the North Atlantic, and The Settlement of Iceland. 

The Icelander is Viking World's most exciting attraction. It's a replica of the Gokstad ship, found almost entirely intact when excavated in Norway in 1882. The Icelander sailed to New York in 2000 to commemorate the anniversary of Leifur Eiriksson's journey there from Iceland a thousand years earlier.

The ship is made from oak and pine and has 32 oars. In the Viking era, a ship like this would have had around 70 crew members. The ship hangs in the air, so you can walk underneath it and look closely at how it's made.

Vikings of the North Atlantic tells how Vikings expanded their empire from Europe to America. This exhibit teaches more about how they traded and where they settled.

The Settlement of Iceland exhibit contains archaeological finds from the Reykjanes peninsula, some dating back to the ninth century. You'll learn more about the way Vikings lived with information about longhouses, farms, and traditional homesteads.
