From the history books: At open seas the Vikings had their own ways of navigating. It is probable that they observed the locations of the Sun and the North Star and different signs of the nature around them, such as waves, winds, birds and fishes. Birds and whales were found near the coast and waves were formed differently as the sea floor rose when approaching the shore. Experienced sailors also knew how to keep an eye on glaciers' reflections in the horizon.

Aava Wolfsbane: Aava came to Tavastia from the eastern forests to have a better future. On her travels she came across an angry wolf on the road. Aava didn't like that at all, so she pinned the wolf to the ground with her bare hands and told it to behave. The wolf found it was better not to argue with her and ran away. When she came to Tavastia she marched straight into the nicest looking tavern and told the owner that she could start working there right away. The owner hired her, and there she remains to this day. Her nickname has given her a reputation, and very few dare to cause trouble when they hear about her.

From the history books: Heimdal was the guardian of Asgård, the home of the gods.He was a tireless watcher with senses so keen that he could see in absolute darkness and hear the grass grow. He lived by the bridge Bifrost, which connects the worlds of gods and men. His task during Ragnarök was to warn the other gods of giants by blowing into his Gjallarhorn. Heimdal fought Loki and won. The battle took place again during Ragnarök, when Heimdal killed Loki and died.

Halthor Sourpuss: Young Halthor was amazed in the new village and looked sour. ”How will I ever get along with these experienced Vikings?” he thought. Time passed and the young boy grew up to be a proper Viking, who's not scared of big riots or great feasts. There's always a big smile on his face when he's serving guests.

From the history books: Vikings usually ate two meals a day – in the morning, a few hours after starting the workday they had their morning porridge and in the evening after work they had dinner. Water, buttermilk or beer were their drinks of choice. The change of seasons was celebrated with sacrificial feasts, during which they drank beer. In case an event was especially significant, they would serve mead, which was made from honey, malt and water and seasoned with hops. The wealthiest Vikings also had wines imported from the land of the Franks. The walls of Viking houses were lined with benches, on which they sat during the day and slept on at night. When food was served, tables covered with cloths were lifted in front of the benches.

Gunhild Riverfoam: Gunhild is the daughter of a salt merchant and therefore has her home at a nice spot near trade routes. She knows how to make good ale and grow herbs. Gunhild is a calm and happy person who always seems to have her hands on a dozen things at once. One time she almost lost her temper when she lost her best beer barrel in a flood. She had no choice but to make a whole new batch, this time seasoning it with thyme, and no one was left thirsty at Harald's feast.

From the history books: Vinland was the name given to an area most likely located on the east coast of Canada by Vikings from Greenland. According to a Greenlandic saga, one of Leif Erikson's men called Tyrkir found grapes in the area, and named it Vinland, ”wine land”. The presence of grapevines in the region is, however, impossible, and one possible origin for name has been thought to have been ”land of meadows”. The first mention of Vinland is found in the book Descriptio insularum Aquilonis, written by Adam of Bremen in 1075. The main sources describing Vinland are two Icelandic sagas, the Greenland saga and the Saga of Erik the Red. They were written 250 years after the events which they depict, and can not be considered reliable. It is certain, however, that Vikings sailed to North America. In 1960, archaeologists found evidence of the Vikings' presence in the northern tip of Newfoundland at L'Anse aux Meadows. The place was added to the World Heritage List in 1978. A Viking settlement has been reconstructed in the rough terrain. This settlement has often been considered to be the Vinland of the sagas, but there is no certainty about this.

Stine Sharp-shooter: I was born during hard times. My father, Vikke the Wild, shot crows with his bow to make a living. One time when he took a shot, he missed the flying crow and the arrow came back straight into his eye when he was looking at the skies. Luckily he didn't lose his sight, but started seeing everything double. ”Two birds with one shot”, he thought. It's a shame that he was always aiming at the wrong crow, and that was the end of his hunting days. When I was just a little girl, my father taught me how to use a bow, and at just three years old I managed to hit the ”two birds with one shot”. I became so skilled, that they started to call me Stine Sharp-shooter. I haven't forgotten how to hunt, and to this day I work here catching crows for a living.

From the history books: The Varangian Guard was an elite unit of the Byzantine Army, whose members served as personal bodyguards to the Byzantine emperors. The guard was established during the reign of emperor Basil II , when Vladimir I of Kiev sent 6000 men to help him defend his throne against the rebel general Bardas Phokas. The Varagians had fought with the Byzantine Army before, but for the first time in 988 they were made an elite unit, which followed the emperor wherever he went. The guard soon gained a reputation of being brave and extremely loyal. At first, the guard consisted of Rus' men, but soon gained other Scandinavians, such as Norwegians, Swedes and Icelandic. The guard was well known for their love of alcohol and long war axes, and they were called ”axe-wielding warriors” in Byzantine chronicles.

Helga Elk-caller: As a small Viking girl Helga was in the forest picking berries and hadn't been paying much attention to her surroundings. Her basket was almost full of blueberries, so she thought she would head home and make a nice pie for her clan. When she turned around she saw the largest creature she had ever laid her eyes upon: a big elk was laying right in front of her, sleeping. Helga was frightened by the elk and started screaming at the top of her lungs. The elk woke up and panicked, and ran straight to a great pine tree. So great was the impact that it snapped the elk's neck and it fell dead to the ground. Helga had quite a story to tell when she got home, and the elk was prepared for a feast for the whole village. Since then her nickname has been Elk-caller.

From the history books: Rurik, chieftain of the Rus' (c. 830- c. 879) was a legendary Varangian, who, according to legend, claimed Staraya Ladoga in 862 and founded the city of Novgorod. The Rus' were Vikings who travelled, lived and traded in ancient Russia. Rurik's name means ”famous leader”. The 12th-century Primary Chronicle by Nestor reveals how Rurik came to power. According to the book, Chuds, Eastern Slavs, Merias, Veses, and Krivichs refused to pay taxes, drove out the Varangians and started to rule themselves. The tribes, however, were driven to war with each other and decided to call Rurik and his brothers to keep discipline.

Harald's story: Harald's delicious ice cream is made by Suomen jäätelö. Only milk from Finncattle is used in the process. The milk from these indigenous cows is well suited for making ice cream because of the naturally higher fat and protein content. These properties are needed to make the best possible ice cream when striving to get the most delicious flavour. No artificial flavouring or colouring is used in the making process. Every used ingredient is the best of its kind.

From the history books: The Norwegian Vikings' first raid took place at Lambay Island on the coast of Dublin in 795. The early Viking raids were brief and minor. However, they marked the end of the golden age of Christian culture in Ireland, and the Irish began a 200-year-long sporadic war against the Viking raiders, who pillaged monasteries and cities in the whole of Ireland.

Sven the Smallflame: Sven was standing, hungry and cold, with a dead squirrel in his hand. In need of a warming fire, he remembered that he had his tinderbox with him. He put his hands in his pockets, took the stones in his hands and smashed them together with great force. As a high-pitched scream echoed through the whole of Tavastia, he remembered that he had a large hole in both of his pockets. With tears of pain in his eyes, he swore that he would never make a fire again and that his nickname would be Smallflame from that moment on.
