“Our Viking heritage and Norse Mythology have fascinated me for as long as I can remember, but I have always felt something’s been missing. A bridge between fact and fiction. A place where people can experience an awesome mix of fantasy and reality. The portals to the world of Vikings, gods, heroes and heroines – which are the brainchild of Norse Theme Parks – are taking shape before our very eyes.”

“What attracts me to this project is the sheer scope of it. The individuals behind NTP have the vision, determination and ability to deliver – not on just one but on many levels. While funding the creation of the ultimate goal – a physical Viking-inspired theme park – investors won’t have to wait long for financial results. Every step of the development program has commercial potential, thanks to the out-of-the-box thinking that characterizes this company.”
