Ingólfshátíð – Viking Festival Reykjavík 2020

Today I was invited to observe the Icelandic reenactment society, Einherjar, Víkingafélag í Reykjavík in as they displayed some viking loot at their headquarters in Nauthólfsvík, Iceland. This included impressive weapons, some specifically designed for the youngest Vikings, helmets, knives, axes and more. I saw crafts, such as nalbinding and in the evening I had the pleasure of observing a blót, led by the seiðgoði Tómas V. Albertsson.

Below are some images taken during the day. Enjoy.
