During the COVID-19 pandemic, Reik Felag is meeting virtually to protect the health of our members and the public. In-person meetings and events will resume at a future date. Check out our calendar page to see what we're up to online!
Reik Félag is a group of enthusiastic history buffs who bring the Viking Age into the present with engaging and interactive living history portrayals and historical reenactment. Non-profit, non-denominational, non-political, and inclusive, our community group is composed of men, women and children. We depict ancient Norse culture, often called the Vikings, through costumes, crafts, and first-person interactive recreational events.
Our presentations include producing a seasonal trading village made up of Norse men and women from all parts of the Viking World. Our name, "Reik Félag" (pronounced Rake Feelag) is Icelandic, and roughly translates to "travelling fellowship".
Our members draw on archaeological, literary and historical sources in their endeavours to create an authentic Viking era experience. We work with many organizations and societies in our community, including the Scandinavian Heritage Centre, the Viking Ship Project, Scouts Canada, PARMA, Nordhere, schools and museums throughout the Greater Vancouver area.
