Uppsala Tours

Uppsala
With a history dating back to Viking times and a wealth of well-preserved medieval architecture, the picturesque city of Uppsala is a popular day trip from nearby Stockholm. The city is also home to the 15-century Uppsala University, and is the seat of the archbishop of the Church of Sweden. 

The Basics
Uppsala's charming small-town atmosphere and close-knit attractions make it easy to explore on foot. As you stroll, admire landmarks such as the 15th-century Uppsala Castle, home to the Uppsala Konstmuseum; the grand Gothic Uppsala Cathedral; and Sweden's oldest university, which dates back to 1477. Other points of interest include the ancient burial grounds and stone churches of the Old Town of Gamla Uppsala, the Botanical Gardens, the Upplands Museum, and a museum dedicated to Swedish scientist Carl Linnaeus. Due to the city's rich history, Viking history tours from Stockholm typically stop in Uppsala. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Tourist information centers located around town offer maps and brochures, answer questions, and give tips on current events, sights, and activities in Uppsala.
  • Although Swedish is the country's official language, most residents also speak English. 
  • Sweden's culture is generally a very child-friendly; Uppsala offers many amenities for kids and the city center is stroller-friendly.

How to Get There
Located just an hour from Stockholm, Uppsala is an ideal day trip from Sweden's capital. While guided tours typically offer round-trip transportation, it's also possible to arrive by car via the E4 highway. Buses and trains also depart regularly from Stockholm's city center and Arlanda Airport.

When to Get There
You can visit Uppsala year-round, but Sweden sees its most pleasant weather in the late spring, summer, and early fall. Shops and museums are typically open during regular daytime hours, while Uppsala's student population provides a bustling nightlife. 

Walpurgis Festival
The 30th of April is known as Walpurgis (Valborg, or Sista Abril) in Sweden and is celebrated as winter's absolute last gasp. Uppsala is known for its raucous Walpurgis Festival, which includes student floats running the Fyris river, herring lunches, the donning of the caps at Carolina Rediviva, and huge parties. It is well worth planning a visit to Uppsala around this event.

Viking tour by Urban

My groups will never exeed 17 guests (normally we around 6-12). The van is comfortable and has both AC and heating. I am an expieranced authorized guide an have done these tours for 8 years. My aim it to keep everthing as personal as possible and to make you feel like we are a group of friends travelling together. I do have excellent reviews from previous years, just look for reviews of "Urban". Earlier I worked for other agencies like STOEX but now I am by my self. I can guarantee good service, knowledge, english and sympathy. It is almost like a private tour.
