Private Tour: Stockholm Viking History Walking Tour

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

Meet your expert guide, who will be dressed in authentic Viking costume, in the center of Stockholm Gamla Stan (Old Town) for your 1.5-hour private walking tour.

If you wish, put on your fun, supplied Viking-style helmet to celebrate the theme of your tour, and, since it’s a private tour, talk to your guide about any sights you want to see more or less of, so they can tailor the itinerary if need be.

Then, stride out into the historical old quarter as your guide shares intriguing facts about Swedish culture and history, including its dark Viking past.

Make your way through the cobblestoned streets and see some of Stockholm’s top landmarks as you learn about the lives and culture of Sweden’s Viking peoples, known as Rus’, in medieval times.

Discover how, in the 8th century, Rus’ warriors sailed rivers from the Baltic Sea deep into Russia, and over the next two centuries, plundered and settled much of Eastern Europe, spreading their influence as far as the Byzantine Empire.

Stroll down the charming lanes and squares as your guide points out sites of interest related to Stockholm’s Viking roots, and pose for photos at top attractions such as the Stockholm Royal Palace ((Kungliga Slottet) and Swedish Parliament building.

On your forays, also delve into some of Stockholm’s hidden corners and passageways to discover sites and secrets that many visitors never get to see.

After around 1.5 hours, your private tour concludes when you say goodbye to your guide back 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.
