Greet your knowledgeable driver-guide at the your disembarking point in Stockholm port and set out in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan to explore the historical highlights of the region. Admire stunning scenery as your guide offers fascinating facts about Sweden’s Viking heritage.
Stop at the ancient site of Täby to see the remarkable runic stones of an enormous Viking causeway; visualize members of parliament discussing policies at this former parliament site then return to the coach to venture to Granby, a Viking settlement from 400 AD. See Sweden’s largest runic stone, the Granbyhällen then revitalize during an hour of free time for lunch (own expense) at a local eatery.
Next, venture to the medieval church at Orkesta to marvel at the beautifully preserved frescoes and runic stones. Continue to the town that boasts the title of Sweden’s oldest, Sigtuna, to lose yourself in the tangled streets steeped in ancient history. See a plethora of Viking relics and hear entertaining tales from the past.
Relax during the journey back to Stockholm and arrive well in advance of your cruise ship’s departure.
