Viking Motel is situated in Hanko, the southern point of Finland, near the sea.
The sea played a great part in the Vikings life and their fantastic
adventures. The famous and for the Vikings important eastern
trade route lead the Vikings through Hanko to the tradecenters
Constantinople and Novgorod. In Hanko they could
bunker and trade with the local population...
Now we have constructed a whole Viking village in Hanko
with a tower, a hanging bridge, motel etc. Even though it is a
Viking village our motel is of a high standard. The rooms are pleasantly furnished with Viking themes and also have modern technique.
