When your cruise ship sails into Stockholm’s pretty port, disembark to explore the spectacular sights of Sweden’s capital city on a 4-hour guided tour. Greet your knowledgeable guide beside the port and travel to the majestic palaces and verdant parklands while listening to fascinating commentary. See the luscious lakeside landscapes of Ulriksdal Palace; admire the fanciful features of Haga Park; and delve into the ancient past at the Viking ruins of Lovö Church. Finally, marvel at the regal magnificence of Drottningholm Palace as you tour the resplendent Rococo interiors and manicured gardens.
  • 4-hour shore excursion of Stockholm’s royal palaces and sights with an expert guide
  • Tour UNESCO-listed Drottningholm Palace, still home to Sweden’s royal family

  • See the exotic royal follies at Haga Park including the Copper Tent and Chinese Pagoda
  • Learn about Sweden’s rich royal history and its flamboyant monarchs

Disembark your cruise ship and greet your accomplished guide at the port. Climb aboard your comfortable, air-conditioned coach and listen as Stockholm’s historical scene is set. Drive towards the summer palaces that pepper the Royal National City Park and hear tales of Sweden’s long established monarchy. 

Stop at Ulriksdal Palace to admire the lakeside landscape that surrounds the regal residence; stroll around the picturesque park and hear stories from the palace’s 17th-century origin before departing to your next destination. 

Head to Haga Park and stimulate your senses with the vibrant greenery and enticing aromas effusing from bright flowers, then tour the fanciful follies constructed by King Gustav III during the 18th century; see an exotic Chinese Pagoda, a beautiful Butterfly House and a glimmering Copper Tent. 

Travel back in time as you visit the 12th-century Lovö Church, a sacred structure made from archaic rune stones and shrouded in Viking legend. Conclude your cultural tour with a visit to UNESCO World Heritage-listed Drottningholm Palace, a regal Renaissance-style residence that enjoys a picturesque position beside a lake. Capture the manicured gardens on camera and marvel at the magnificence of the Rococo interiors during your tour.  

Return to the minibus and drive to the cruise port, arriving well in advance of your ship’s departure.

Viking and Runic Tour

Viking History Extended Tour from Stockholm | Nov 2019
We enjoyed our guide and he was very informative. The tour included some driving in the countryside outside of Stockholm which was enjoyable. Perhaps more time could have been spent Uppsala.

Great informative excursion

Viking History Tour from Stockholm | Oct 2019
We booked this tour online before leaving home. There are many such tours but what attracted us was the convenience of a hotel pick up. Prepare for along day and dress for the weather. Ours was cold and wet. However, the guide was so knowledgeable and never stopped talking! This was great, his history was excellent and the sites we were taken to are so out of the way you would never find them on your own. A coffee/tea and snacks were provided at a lovely farm which hosts yet another historic site. Excellent tour.

Did not go to Sigtuna. Very disappointing.

Viking History Tour from Stockholm | Oct 2019
The company changed our date to October 6 Sunday and we agreed because we wanted to see Sigtuna regardless of the date. But the guide did not take us to Sigtuna in this tour which was very disappointing. We realized it after the tour was over. Very disappointed.

Very interesting all day tour

Viking History Tour from Stockholm | Aug 2019
You certainly get your moneyed worth - 9am til after 6pm All over southern Sweden- dirt roads/cow pastures/churches/towns.runes and runes! Our guide, Urban was informed, passionate and a natural educator- however his accent is still a little thick and takes some focus to stay with. But he is very good and a nice man. I recommend this tour and Urban

History tour, not Vikings tour

star-3Mike H
Viking History Extended Tour from Stockholm | Jul 2019
Our guide, Urban, was a very good tour guide and very knowledgeable on Nordic history. But other than seeing Rune stones, the tour is very light on Vikings and very heavy on general history of Sweden and neighboring countries. If the tour was called Sweden History, my rating would be a 4 or 5, but I was expecting much more color on Vikings history.

Many sights - Wonderful guide

Viking History Extended Tour from Stockholm | Jul 2019
This is a wonderful tour with many interesting stops. Urban was our guide and he was very helpful and knowledgeable. He took us to several rune stone sights that we never would have located without him. He was very considerate and the tour covered great interesting places.

Covered a lot of ground!

Viking History Extended Tour from Stockholm | Jun 2019
There is no way I could have possibly learned this much and seen so much stuff in a day on my own. Most of the locations we went to were fascinating and things that you would only know of if you were an insider. Some of the Viking ruins we saw were almost unmarked- amazing for ruins that are 1500 years old! The scale of what means "old" is completely different in Sweden as it is for us from the States. Our tour guide, Urban, covered everything in an interesting way that tied everything together well. He has a deep understand of the history and could answer any questions I had, and went deeper into into areas as needed. And the coffee break ("Ficka") spot was a memorable gem in the Swedish countryside. A great value, and I plan to take the tour again when I return with my family in tow next year.

Highlight of our trip!

Viking History Extended Tour from Stockholm | May 2019
Our guide was Urban—he has such a comprehensive knowledge of Swedish and Viking history that he loves to share. The tour van was comfortable and there were only three of us on the tour our day. It was wonderful having such a small group which was lucky for us. We made numerous stops to see old Viking areas— near a lake, in a farmyard- definitely places a big tour bus wouldn’t take you. We also toured the interiors of various ancient churches- which was wonderful with a guide who could point out many things we wouldn’t have known or noticed. I would highly recommend this tour if you have a free day during a Stockholm visit

What Happened Earlier

Viking History Tour from Stockholm | May 2019
An informative introduction to reading ancient Rune Stones. Angus read the inscriptions on a number of stones and showed how the writing is laid out. We saw several Viking sites including a meeting place, a farmstead, and a causeway. It was a treat to go into the countryside north of Stockholm. We had a “fika” at a farmhouse near several of the Viking sites; people have lived in this area for thousands of years

Amazing historic trip

Viking History Extended Tour from Stockholm | Sep 2018
Our guide, Urban, was above and beyond all our expectations. His knowledge and willingness to share it with all passengers was superb. We enjoyed every minute of the trip: from the moment Urban picked us up from the hotel to the moment of saying goodbye at the location, that was not included into the trip, but we asked Urban if he could drop us somewhere near a public transportation station, so we may go over there. And Urban just drove us to the place. We can't appreciate more his job. He showed us not only history of Sweden and Vikings but also showed heartwarming respect to the customers.I would definitely recommend the Viking History Day Trip from Stockholm including Upsala to everyone who is interested in Scandinavian history. And especially if the guide will be Urban.

Not.Good Value for your money

Viking History Extended Tour from Stockholm | Sep 2018
Done in a Van where the driver was also the Guide. Wow dangerous if I may say to drive and and talk about history at same time. The Guide was average, hated his monotonous tone of speaking - made ihistory so boring Way over priced $164 for one person!
