Overview

Get an overview of Viking history in this quick and easy 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.
  • Viking history tour from Stockholm
  • Activities for the whole family
  • Small group of 15 people or fewer
  • Round-trip transportation from central Stockholm meeting point
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 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!!
