Now that Jon Snow can’t save you (or can he?) from an army of White Walkers, the best way to make sure you survive a Game of Thrones-style onslaught of the undead is preparation. And now, if you’re willing to head to Norway, you can get somewhat formal training.
Led by self-proclaimed “recreational Viking” and “Game of Thrones” fan Jeppe Nordmann Garly—who looks like he’d fit in quite well with the Night’s Watch—the course from Seljord Folk High School will train its students in the fine art of being a Viking. That includes learning to make swords and knives and honing hunting, fishing and boating skills. There are also field trips to Oslo’s Viking Boat Museum and York, England.
Some of the students “have become interested through TV series” like “Game of Thrones,” the school’s principal Arve Husby told a Norwegian broadcaster.
Unlike the Hunger Games camp, there are no battles on the agenda. Not yet, at least.
