Vikings season 6 part 2 explained: Where did Ubbe and Torvi end up?
Vikings: Amazon Prime release trailer for final season
Vikings season six part two, also known as part B, was the final instalment in the Vikings story. Ubbe (played by Jordan Patrick Smith), the son of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), was able to fulfil his father’s dream of locating the ‘Golden Land’. Fans are keen to know where exactly he and the rest of the group, including wife Torvi (Georgia Hirst) ended up.
Where did Ubbe and Torvi end up?
The final 10 episodes of Vikings were full of intense twists and turns as the characters’ storylines ended in a satisfying way.
Ubbe and Torvi had travelled to Iceland with Kjetill Flatnose (Adam Copeland) and Othere (Ray Stevenson), but they realised the land was not suitable to start a new settlement.
They took their boat out to sea once more and went on the hunt for new land, and they eventually had some luck.
The settlers decided to name the land ‘Greenland’ as a joke, as there was in fact no greenery in sight.
Ubbe, Torvi and Othere did not stay long, as Kjetill’s hunger for power drove them off the desolate land and they were forced out to sea again.

Just when they believed all had been lost and they were sure to die in the ocean, Ubbe spotted some mountains in the distance.
Finally, the group had come across the fruitful land Othere had told them about – the land Ragnar had been so keen to find.
The name of the land was never revealed in the series, and fans have been keen to find out where they ended up.
Ubbe and the rest of the group discovered a new tribe there, and some believe they had landed in North America.
They took to Reddit to discuss the idea, and Square_Patient_3777 suggested it was Nova Scotia – a Canadian province.
They added: “This can be deduced from the language that is spoken (Mi’kmaq) and the final shot which is of a sunset over an open ocean (you can’t look at the sunset over an ocean if the ocean is east of you).
“It could feasibly be the Gaspé Peninsula or Prince Edward Island but it’s less likely.”
Having checked the credits, the fan noticed how thanks had been given to Nova Scotia Museum and the Eskasoni First Nation.
Others had suggested they had ended up in Newfoundland – a large island off the east of Canada.

Midgardoriginal said: “Pretty sure the Vikings made it to Newfoundland, It’s in all of the history books. Plus the Indian tribes were also clues.”
The final scene of the series includes Ubbe talking to his old friend Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård) after they were reunited by the tribe.
The friends had been talking about the future of the Viking Age, and Floki spoke of how Ubbe resembled his father Ragnar.
They were looking out on a beautiful sunset on the beach – a moment creator Michael Hirst called personable and intimate.
The peoplessgt said: “There is a point on Nova Scotia where you can watch the sun set. Then again you can see the sun set over the ocean at Cape Cod Massachusetts USA. Think Hirst was implying that Ubbe’s group settled in Nova Scotia.
“Ubbe’s ship could have drifted anywhere along the Canadian coast from Labrador, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia.
“In the Viking sagas there were several expeditions to Vinland. We only have archaeological evidence of one on Newfoundland.”
Ubbe and Torvi had experienced some tense moments on the Island, after one of the settlers murdered a member of the other tribe.
Yet after the Vikings made the settler pay the price for his actions, they were able to reconcile with the tribe and remain friends.
Unfortunately for Kjetill, he had stayed behind in Greenland and the desire to become king eventually drove him mad.
