Besides recreating a historical period, crafting, research and camplife we also practice what we call reenactment fighting (fr. Swedish "Härkamp"). This is a martial art adapted to reenactment groups primarily using melee weapons.


The crafting skills of the vikings held a very high standard and many of the techniques from then are still in use today. Elvegrimarne tries to reconstruct these techniques and we always have new upcoming projects in the pipe.

Performing arts

Elvegrimarne believes that the old norse poetry is an important aspect of any accomplished viking, and just by looking at great names in the viking era history you will find skalds and historians such as Snorre Sturlasson.
