Private Tour: Stockholm Viking History Walking Tour

Roam Stockholm's historical Gamla Stan on a Viking-themed walking tour

Make your way to the center of Gamla Stan, Stockholm's Old Town, to meet your local guide. Dressed in full Viking regalia, he'll be hard to miss.

Be sure to mention any sites you are particularly interested in seeing, since this private tour can be customized to accommodate your interests. 

Learn about the country's grim Viking past as you march through Gamla Stan's cobblestone streets. Ask any questions you may have about Sweden's history and the Rus' people (the Swedish Vikings.) Delve into some of Stockholm’s hidden corners and passageways to discover sites and secrets that many visitors never get to see. 

Stop at Stockholm's sop landmarks like the Parliament building and Kungliga Slottet (the Royal Palace.) 

At the conclusion of your 90-minute walking tour, which will take place rain or shine, reluctantly hand back your Viking helmet and say goodbye to your guide at the original departure point.

Loved the tour! Especially if you are traveling with kids!! We were a group of 5, two of which were 9 and 12. We all had a great time and learned a great deal about "old town" and how Vikings were involved with it. Tour a gives you a good senses to how old tow is laid out.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

I can thoroughly recommend this tour as it was great fun and Bertha our guide was very informative. It was a bit of a shame for Bertha as we'd already been on the Ghost Walk and there is some duplication. However she adapted her tour very well and added quite a lot of extra info. We were also lucky in that we witnessed the changing of the guard at the royal palace.
