Overview

Get an overview of Viking history in this 3-hour tour from Stockholm. Visit some of the Viking era's most important sites, including the Viking parliament, ancient rune stones, and Jarlabanke's Bridge. Round-trip transportation from a central Stockholm meeting point is included.
  • 3-hour Viking history tour from Stockholm
  • Activities for kids
  • Round-trip transportation from central Stockholm meeting point
  • Small group of 15 people or fewer
  • Swedish cinnamon bum and taste of Viking-inspired mead
Meet your guide and small tour group at the Central Train Station in Stockholm. From there, board a tour vehicle and head north through the countryside, feeling yourself move back in time as you travel. 
Stop first at Broby, a Viking graveyard, to learn about the only identified Viking woman's skeleton in Sweden, well-known as Estrid. Cross the 495-foot (150-meter) Jarlabanke's bridge, built by the powerful Viking leader centuries ago. Listen to a message written on a rune stone that flanks the bridge; your guide will read it out loud in Old Norse.
At the Viking parliament, imagine the powerful leaders making important decisions on that very spot. Continue to Vallentuna church to see a famous collection of Jarlabanke's rune stones.
At the end of your 3-hour tour, return to central Stockholm for drop-off at your departure point.

It was different experience than Stockholm city. You get to see the real historical footprints. If you don't have enough time to see the whole Viking history and want to experience something different than a big city, it might be a good opportunity for you.

Angus, Jonathan, and Helan were all great, we have three small children, 5, 3, and 1, and they helped us to make sure we had safety seats for them all which in itself was amazing. But the tour itself was wonderful they knew a ton about Vikings and rune stones, hard to get more from a 3 hour tour!!

Great trip out to see some Viking runes and learn about the Viking history. Angus and John had a huge amount of knowledge and were more than eager to share their passion of Viking history. Thankyou for a great trip out of Stockholm.
Would recommend this, perfect amount of time and paced well.
