Happy New Year!  We hope you enjoyed the festive period!  January is here now though, and that can only mean one thing... Up Helly Aa!  The annual viking fire festival returns again to Shetland this year.  It'll take place on Tuesday the 29th of January in Lerwick, Shetland.

We actually had influencers Vagabrothers over from America to visit Shetland for the festival last year!  Why not have a look and experience what it's like below!

They seemed to really enjoy the festival, they had never seen anything like it before.  The order of proceedings is below:

Keep an eye on the website to see further details!  Are you planning on visiting the festival this year, or is it on your bucket list?

    It is an incredible event in Lerwick. There are a series of fire festivals through January to the end of March across Shetland. 

    My visit in 2017 has been one of my most memorable experiences.
