You don't need much strength to move enormous logs if even children can do it. Just let the Vikings teach you.
If you have never had a bow in your hands, here is your chance to get your first experience of archery. I turned out to be no good at it: the arrows didn't even get as far as the target, but my husband excelled at it.
If you are a visitor to the Viking Village in summer time, you can have a go at the activities presented by the children yourself, which is a great way to get to know the practical aspects of Viking life. One of them is combing wool, which you can see the girls in this picture doing.
When we settled in in our kennel-like house at Fjallbacka, we couldn't wait to see the coast right at the back of our cabin and set off for a walk almost immediately. The view was really lovely, walking on the smooth rocks easy and pleasant. Just one thing made us go back sooner than we had intended: the awful smell of something decomposing in the shallow water. But I suppose you can get used to it - we saw a local woman with a baby in a pram taking a walk along the path there. She didn't seem to mind it at all.
Fjallbacka is a very pretty coastal village, with a marina and lots of boats moored beside the colourful summer houses dotting the rocky coast. Some of them are on pales to prevent them from being flooded by the waves but when we were there the sea was perfectly calm. It was lovely to be able to sit on the smooth glacier polished rocks and watch the boats on a peaceful afternoon in late August. Earlier in the season it might not be that peaceful there though - the place is too lovely not to be frequented by tourists.
