What You Can Expect

Viking History Day Trip from Stockholm Including Uppsala

Visit the historical town of Uppsala on your shore excursion

Depart from your centrally located Stockholm hotel in a comfortable vehicle and begin your cultural journey to the heart of Sweden’s captivating countryside. Stop first to view the ancient Viking causeway of Täby and admire the runic stones that once comprised a Viking parliament. Return to the minivan and venture to Granby, a quaint and archaic settlement that dates back to 400 AD; decipher the ancient inscriptions upon the Granbyhällen, a colossal rock decorated with swirling runes, then revitalize with lunch at a local eatery (own expense). 

Next, continue through the verdant beauty of the Lunda region to Sigtuna, an ancient settlement founded in the 10th century. Stroll the atmospheric streets of Sweden’s oldest town and browse bespoke boutiques for special souvenirs. 

Return to the minivan and travel through more lush landscapes to Gamla Uppsala, a small village replete with royal burial mounts and relics that attest to the richness of Viking culture. See some of Sweden’s most significant scared sites then enjoy some relaxed independent exploration in new Uppsala, where the country’s oldest Cathedral resides. 

Finally, return to your minivan and relax during the journey back to Stockholm.

Totally agree with all 5-star reviews.
We did have our hotel pick-up and drop-off. I called them in advance to confirm the time 8:20am.
A free coffee/tea break on the way to Uppsala in a working farm is a great time for chatting or just relaxing.
Urban who is our tour guide and driver is very knowledgeable not only with history of Vikings but also Sweden. He is full of passion for his job and humorous. Make sure to collect some questions for him to answer.

My wife and I took this tour on Monday, August 1. It was an absolutely delightful time for us, and we learned so much about the Viking culture from our guide, Urban. The various sites we visited were full of historical artifacts and icons, and, at the end of the tour we felt as if we had experienced a valuable lesson in history of the region. Lunch was in a small town, and we had opportunity to dine with a local couple who were taking their lunch break. We highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn about who the Vikings were and how they lived.
