The Viking Tavern was born from imagination and dreams of a return to simpler times. Its founder, Stevan G, was immersed in Scandinavian stories from an early age, immersing himself in Nordic myths and sagas while exploring the forests and lands of his native Normandy, steeped in a rich Viking heritage.
This passion was ignited over hours spent meticulously studying Nordic languages and cultures. Years later, with his experiences thanks to his family living in Scandinavia, in direct contact with Nordic history and culture, Stevan transformed his craze into reality, sharing his passion with the world.
Today, Stevan travels the ancient Viking route, from Norway to Ukraine, from Sweden to Denmark, without forgetting France, in search of the best materials and craftsmen to enrich the collections of his store. It is committed to offering quality Viking products at affordable prices.
The mission of La Taverne du Viking is to reconnect its customers with the times of our ancestors, awakening the Viking in everyone. The products reflect the craftsmanship and authenticity of Nordic artisans, who create with meticulous attention and stunning attention to detail. All our artisans use traditional techniques, drawing inspiration from stories and mythologies to trace sometimes forgotten cultures.
We also honor the values of the culture that inspires La Taverne du Viking. Our small Normandy structure guides you in your choice, providing you with rich and precise information on the meaning and history of our creations.
Since 2017, La Taverne du Viking has been able to awaken the Viking that lies dormant in many enthusiasts. So why not you ? Awaken the Viking that sleeps in you!
At the beginning of 2017, in the midst of a career change, the idea of making a living from his passion gradually took hold in Stevan's head.
It was then that the idea of a site offering quality Viking jewelry and accessories with modern techniques, but respecting ancestral traditions, was born.
After months of drawing, creation, doubt. La Taverne du Viking officially opens in November 2017, in order to stand out from competing stores La Taverne du Viking chooses a 100% handmade and made-to-order creation.
Our mission? Sharing our passion with everyone through our creations while remaining responsible and made-to-order manufacturing.
After 3 years of opening and more than 20,000 satisfied customers all over the world, La Taverne du Viking closes, the world is paralyzed by a virus.
But we are not remaining idly faced with our fate, we are taking advantage of our forced closure to think and work on new products.
That's when in May 2020, we are back stronger with 90 new products!
In our 5th year full of projects. The war affects our employees in Ukraine and as bombs explode under their heads, they continue manufacturing and shipping orders with disproportionate force.
Together we are committed to multiplying our strengths to continue our mission. La Taverne du Viking then begins a shift, offering new products, the multiplication of resellers, partners and delivery within 48 hours on certain products.
The Great Raid
5 years passed and thousands of happy customers, La Taverne du Viking is expanding its collection offering more quality products and always created by hand: axes, drinking horns, clothing, beard beads...
After two crises and a pause in our projects, we are still working on the creation of a physical store, but not only that.
We want to open a unique place that immerses you in the magical culture that unites us all and that Awakens the Viking that sleeps among you™.
