The city will be full of Vikings between 12th - 18th February 2024.

It may be difficult to follow the exact route that Treasure Hunt York takes you.

It’s the JORVIK Viking Festival, where hundreds of Vikings descend on the city.

They’re unpredictable folk and we aren’t sure of their exact locations in the city. In previous years they’ve taken over alleyways and made it tricky for our treasure hunters.

Be prepared to use extra pirate initiative to skirt round those pesky Vikings!

If you’ve already booked and you no longer want to play you can reschedule or cancel for free (as always).

If you play but you don’t have fun you can always use our normal “Fun or Your Money Back” guarantee.

Either way, just reply to your booking email and we’ll sort you out.

“We thought the clues were pitched at the correct level, not too easy and made you look very closely at your surroundings, without being impossible to solve.
We had a fun day exploring York with a few pit stops for refreshement between clues.”
