Follow the Vikings


The Project

Shetland Amenity Trust is proud to be the lead partner in the Follow the Vikings Project.  This is a four year, transnational project with 15 partners from across the Viking world.

The project will create a large and lasting network among cultural actors involved in the preservation, presentation and marketing of Viking heritage throughout Europe and further afield. The project will take advantage of the network already established by the Destination Viking Association and support the extension of this.  The project will also support an intensified exchange of knowledge and experience between these actors, as well as supporting the creation of joint transnational presentations and products on Viking legacy.

The project aims to broaden the audience to major and less well-known sites, museums, attractions, etc. relating the Viking story and to the legacy of the Vikings at large.  It also aims to stimulate interest in the Viking world beyond the partnership and the Cultural Route.
