The Discovery of North America – Leif Eriksens Day

At this event there will be a presentation of the establishment of the Norse exploration and establishment of trade routes in the North Atlantic incl. the settlement in North American based on the latest scientific discoveries.

For more than 1000 years ago a small group of Vikings landed on the rocky shores of New Foundland in North America. The chief of the group Leif Eriksen, was the son of Erik Redbeard born in Norway and later moved to Iceland.

In USA they are usually celebrating this event on the 9 October as a holiday. In the Nordics it is rare to observe this occasion. As his birthplace Greenland is a part of the Danish Kingdom this unique story of Viking Trade is of cultural and historical interest. Inspired by the latest Netflix series Viking Valhalla which are closer to the historical facts, we feel this could be a great occasion to celebrate here in Thailand at the Eastern Seaboard at the Danish restaurant Bryghuset Jomtien. We agreed in 2022 to have this as an annual event.
