Norway is ravaged by civil war, and the King’s illegitimate son is guarded in deep secret. Half the kingdom is out to kill the boy, and two men have to protect him with their lives. Birkebeinerspelet is the story of the narrow escape that changed the history of Norway.
This 45 minute live action experience tells this true story in real Viking style. The play takes place outside in a spectacular winter landscape, and features well-known Norwegian actors, live fighting, fire, snow and lots of Icelandic horses. Seated in an amphitheatre made of snow, this is a not-to-be-missed event for any visitor enjoying Norway in winter.
