Saturday 9 July 14:00 – Viken Walk & Talk

Join us for our bi-monthly Walk & Talk, this time in the beautiful village of Viken!

We’ll take a tour around the village to see the sights and finish with a stop at Galleri Viken’s harbourside café. Admire the pretty houses and gardens of Gamla Viken, take in the views of Denmark and Kullen, and enjoy some good conversation with other expats.

After we’ve finished, why not explore one of Viken’s treasures?
