Highlights
    What to Expect
    Find your way to Stockholm's Central Station to meet your guide and group, then climb aboard and travel into the surrounding countryside. Stop first a replica of a Viking farm (seasonal; Saturdays April to October, Wednesdays June to August) to learn about life on a working Viking farm from the onsite guide. 

    At the Viking parliament, imagine the powerful leaders making important decisions on that very spot. Cross the 495-foot (150-meter) Jarlabanke's bridge, built by the powerful Viking leader centuries ago. Listen to a message written on a rune stone that flanks the bridge in Old Norse. At Broby, a Viking graveyard, learn about the only identified Viking woman's skeleton in Sweden, well-known as Estrid. 

    Stop for lunch in Vallentuna (own expense); your guide will make some restaurant suggestions. 

    Continue on to Markim-Orkesta, a pair of historic countryside parishes, where you'll see the Orkesta rune stone. Stop at a local farm to see some of the Icelandic horses, then make another stop at the Nordian Burial Mound, the largest in Stockholm county. 

    The day's final stop is in Sigtuna, a historic village, where you'll follow your guide on a 60-minute walking tour. Take a break for 'fika' or coffee and a snack, then spend an hour of free time exploring the town on your own. 

    Return to the city for drop-off at your departure point.

    Important Information
    Departure Point
    Traveler pickup is offered
    All central hotels, ports and other accommodations within 5km from Stockholm central station. No pick up at Nynäshamn harbour but instead travel directions to meeting place in Stockholm.

    If your tour departs from the cruise pier:

    If your ship arrives at S165 and S167 STADSGÅRDEN: Please walk a few hundred meters away from your ship while following the BLUE/GREEN lines. Go past the fences and guards, and your guide will wait there, with a sign saying "Viking Tours" on an A4-paper.  NOTE: If you enter any other harbour number in STADSGÅRDEN than S165 or S167 please go outside the fences and guards and the guide will meet you there on the time of the tour.

    If your ship arrives at F638 FRIHAMNEN: Upon debarking the ship, please go through the terminal building. Once you go past the sliding doors (everyone else that departs the ship will walk out this way), the guide will meet you just outside the sliding doors. The guide will be holding an A4-paper saying "Viking Tours". NOTE: If you enter any other harbour number in FRIHAMNEN than F638 please go outside the fences and guards and the guide will meet you there on the time of the tour.

    If your ship arrives at V523 VÄRTAHAMNEN: Walk from your ship towards the tourist buses, which is less than 10 meters from the ship hull. The guide will wait for you at the tourist bus area, near the buses, with an A4-paper, which says "Viking Tours." The guide will then direct you to the tour vehicle. NOTE: If you enter any other harbour number in VÄRTAHAMNEN than V523 please go outside the fences and guards and the guide will meet you there on the time of the tour.

    If your Ship Arrives at NYNÄSHAMN: NO PICK UP INCLUDED HERE. That due to it being 50km away from Stockholm central station. We recomend you to contact and with us decide a meeting place in Central Stockholm. We will give directions how to go there either by train or that take one of the cruise busses going from the harbour into Stockholm.

    If you are unsure of which pier your ship is arriving at, please check with the cruise line.

    This is a long day, but well worth it if you want to get a feel for history of the area and the people who lived there 1000 years ago. Our guide Jonathan was very knowledgeable and had a passion for the topic.
