About this experience

On this special half-day tour out of Stockholm city with hotel pick-up tour you'll learn about Viking history and culture at real historical places with Viking age remains still standing a 1000 years old. Join our expert tour guides and an award-winning tour company on a trip back to the root of Sweden and the fascinating Viking Age.
On this tour we'll let the rune stones and grave sites, often hidden information, talk to you about Viking Age life. Experience their society, and dispel myths as we dig deep into the Viking Age on this learning tour, showing not only Viking remains and artifacts but also the Swedish countryside and nature as well as life outside of the city of Stockholm.

Start your tour by being picked up at your centrally located hotel or by the Stockholm Central Station. From one of these locations, the journey starts in a minivan taking you out into the Swedish countryside.

First stop at Broby bro, a Viking and Iron Age grave field where people have been buried for more than 1000 years. Take a walk in the pagan grave field with your Viking guide and uncover the Vikings' burial traditions and mythology. Learn about how a person was buried.
Also, hear the story of Estrid - a Viking woman. In 1995 a skeleton was found in a Christian part of the grave field, it was a 60-year-old woman identified as Estrid. Discover how the Stockholm County Museum was able to identify her and experience her life. 

The next stop is Jarlabanki's Causeway, an 11th-century Viking age bridge built by Earl Jarlabanki. He was an arrogant Viking who liked to show off his power. Take in the view of the 150-meter-long causeway and learn about bridge-building and the development of roads and communication in that era. 
Head on to a Viking council, preserved in its original location for 1000 years. Get to understand the Viking culture, society, and mentality through the guide's explanation at the council. Learn how the Vikings ruled their society.

The main attraction on this tour is Sigtuna. The little town of 8000 inhabitants is the oldest still existing town in Sweden and holds many historical gems both on the streets and inside the Sigtuna Museum.
Enjoy a guided walk in the town on around 45 minutes. Catch nice views of Sigtuna Bay, the main streets of 18th-century wooden houses, and the 12th-century romantic church ruins. After Sigtuna, venture back to Stockholm and your hotel. Your guide can also drop you anywhere in Central Stockholm.
