Rosala Viking Centre - fabled experiential accommodation on a beautiful island
You can stay overnight in the Viking village of The Rosala Viking Centre which is a museum and visitor centre with the main mission of depicting the Viking Age history of the archipelago and Finland. There are different kinds of possibilities for accommodation for lonely travellers, couples and families with children. The prices of accommodation include entrance fees, ready made beds, towels, evening sauna and breakfast.
The Chieftain’s hall in the Viking village houses three separate rooms that can be booked for families or individual travellers. The family rooms Freke and Gere, named after Odin’s wolves, have four beds each. In the Chieftain’s bedroom Björn you get to sleep in a bed that is a replica of a grave find from the Viking Age! Björn is suitable for one or two persons. You can also book a bed for yourself in the main room of the Chieftain’s Hall. The alcoves in the large hall are separated by fabrics and fit one person comfortably. If you want to experience the style of travelling vikings, we recommened to try the Viking tent. You can also choose the comfortable Cabin Sten, which accommodates even six persons.
The Viking Centre is located on the beautiful Rosala island near the Kimitoön. To get there, you need to take the car ferry M/S Aurora from Kasnäs, see the timetables here. Or if you are travelling on your own boat, you can read about the guest harbours here. To the car ferry you can't book your place, so you should arrive in good time to ensure your place. The trip with the ferry takes about 25 minutes, and after arriving to Rosala ferry harbour Långnäs there are 5 more kilometres to the Viking Centre. There are good possibilities for renting a cycle on the Rosala island, read more at those websites.
