Viking History Tour, full day

  • Runic inscriptions
A longer Viking tour where you can feel the history of the Vikings and the history of Sweden. We pass the beautiful country-side of Stockholm on the way to historic sites like Sigtuna and Uppsala.

The first stop is at an old Viking site known as Jarlabankes bro – a well preserved stone bridge from the Viking period. The next stop is at an old Viking assembly, Arkils Tingplats. From there we go to Granby, an important village during the late viking age (400–500 AD).

At Granby we find the biggest rock carving in Sweden – Granbyhällen. In Granby we usually have a coffee or lunch at restaurant Hokeriet, where you also can buy Swedish handicraft, homemade marmelades etc.

The tour then takes us through Lunda on our way to the town of Sigtuna which was one of the main market-places of the Vikings. We will have free time to experience the centre of the town with the opportunity for a light lunch.

From Sigtuna we will go to Old Uppsala, probably the most historic place in Sweden because of its old Viking assembly and Mounds. Finally, we will visit the “Younger Uppsala”, where you will have free time to explore places such as the Cathedral, the Old City and the Shopping Street.
