A Viking Funeral is a tradition for the various tribes of the Barbaric Archipelago to honor their dead.


May the Valkyries welcome you and lead you through Odin's great battlefield. May they sing your name with love and fury, so that we might hear it rise from the depths of Valhalla and know that you've taken your rightful place at the table of kings. For a great man has fallen: A warrior. A chieftain. A father. A friend. [src]

There do I see my father, my mother, and my brothers and my sisters. They bid me take my place among them in the halls of Valhalla... where the brave shall live forever. [src]

Race to the Edge

In "Buffalord Soldier", after acquiring a cure for the Scourge of Odin for Astrid, Hiccup and the other riders then gave a fishing boat's surviving crew a Viking funeral in order to prevent Dragon Hunter Chief Viggo Grimborn from spreading the plague.

In "Twintuition", following a disastrous trip to the Northern Markets and the Dragon Hunters' secret base, Tuffnut Thorston gave the handle of his beloved mace, Macey, a Viking funeral at Dragon's Edge.

How to Train Your Dragon 2

Following the death of the Hooligan Tribe's chief, Stoick the Vast, at the Battle of Valka's Mountain, Gobber, Hiccup, Valka, and the other riders then gave Stoick a Viking funeral. Using one of Drago's damaged ships and several bows and arrows left behind by his army, Hiccup and the Riders then shot flaming arrows at Stoick's burial ship after Gobber delivered his eulogy.
