Viking History Extended Tour from Stockholm

    What to Expect
    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.

    We had a great day, starting out of Central Stockholm. A small 4 people group only, we were led by Urban, who turned out to be a "walking encyclopedia" on vikings and their history. Fascinating story-telling, with a good sense of humour in between, kept...More
