West Coast Viking Village

Under new ownership since December 2023

Located on New Zealand’s wild and untouched West Coast, Viking Village is the ultimate retreat for battle-weary warriors. Set amid unspoiled native rainforest, this incredible and off-the-grid slice of Valhalla is the perfect place to rest and relax.

Viking Village is entirely off-the-grid – amongst native New Zealand rainforest in Kaiata, Greymouth. The Viking Barrels have been sourced from Scandinavia and carefully transported on-site to protect the rough and remote landscape. Each of the Barrels have been named in honour of Norse Gods for prosperity, and are available in a number of bedding configurations to accommodate your tribe. Barrels are set up in groups around an epic covered communal grill – perfect for larger groups or meeting new friends.

Location: 115 Clifton Road, Kaiata, Greymouth, West Coast, NZ
