As a nod to your inner warrior, head to the Lofotr Viking Museum in Borg, Norway. Check out the recreated Viking village, learn to throw axes and shoot arrows, then jump into the replica of a Gokstad Viking ship—it has a rowing bench with your name on it. Boats depart daily from Gokstad’s boathouse (a 20-minute walk from the Chieftain’s House) from June to August. It’s only a 30-minute experience, but you’ll quickly learn to keep pace with your oar, just like the Vikings did. (Museum entrance $24 includes boat trip; lofotr.no)
Who said you have to be 65 and retired to see the world? The clock is ticking, so check some of these sweet trips off your bucket list before you’re 30.
