Up Helly Aa Fire Festival

January 30

Free

Up Helly Aa is an old vikings tradition that originated in the 1880s and was created to mark the passing of the darkest days in midwinter. Since then the festival has been an annual occurrence that’s filled with torch lit marches and culminates with the burning of a galley. Think Game of Thrones…with whiskey.
