Be ready for convenient pickup at your Stockholm hotel around 9:30 a.m. Greet your dedicated guide and make yourself comfortable in the private tour vehicle; leave the driving to the experts. Watch the scenery of the Swedish countryside stream by outside the windows on your way to the day's first stop, the Vada sea mounds.
Walk around these enormous mounds, some almost 100 feet (30 meters) long and filled with 6th century treasures left by the Vendel Swedes, ancestors of the Viking Swedes. The day's next stop is the Vallentuna church, stopping at the Lingsberg England rune stone on the way.
At the Viking parliament, your guide will paint a verbal picture of Viking men sitting in a powerful circle, making decisions for their people. Make a stop at Jarlabankes rune stone bridge in Täby to learn about Jarlabanke, the great Viking lord. Continue to Bro y Bro, a Viking grave vield and hear the story of Estrid, the most famous Viking woman in the region, before returning to your accommodations for drop-off at the end of your tour. This private tour ensures a flexible itinerary, plenty of time to ask questions, and undivided attention from your guide.
