Vikingyr: Icelandic Lamb Specialties and Viking Village

Iceland is not only known for its horses, but the sheep on the island are also something very special. There are about four times more sheep than horses and just like the Icelandic horse, the Icelandic sheep has been purely bred for many centuries and thus copes very well with the harsh conditions on the island in the far north. Icelandic lamb is a particularly popular specialty and has been available in Germany for some time now. The Vikingyr brand has launched the original Icelandic lamb on the German market. We are very pleased that Vikingyr supports WM2019 in Berlin as an official partner and not only provides us with meat for volunteer catering but will also be represented with a traditional Viking Village on the WM venue. In addition to Icelandic lamb specialties, there will be great activities here. The younger WM2019 visitors can make wool, forge iron, draw paper and shoot with the crossbow.

Icelandic evening with Helgi Björns

Iceland's musical superstar and great horse lover, Helgi Björnsson, who also composes the WM2019 song, will perform live in the evening programme of the World Championships. If you remember 2013, you know that Helgi not only creates a galactically good mood, but also has an almost endless repertoire of encores in his luggage!

The WM2019 team talked to Helgi about his career and his love for Icelandic horses and asked him about the musical specialties we can look forward to at the World Championships.

Please tell us something about you and your music.
I’m an actor and a musician, I graduated from theatre school in 1983 and have been acting in the theatre, films and TV ever since, and been working as a musician as well with several bands and also made some solo recordings. I’ve recorded around 25 albums in my career, and a lot of them were bestsellers. In 2008, I recorded the first album under the name of Helgi Björns og Reiðmenn vindanna (Riders of the storm), the concept was to create Icelandic riders’ songs (songs that are sung during riding trips in the highlands of Iceland). That turned out to be a huge success, it ended with being 4 albums, all very well received.

How are you connected to the Icelandic horse?
