Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
All central hotels, ports and other accommodations within 3km 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.

Departure Time

9:30 AM
Be ready for convenient pickup at your Stockholm hotel around 9:30 a.m. Greet your dedicated guide and make yourself comfortable in the private tour vehicle; leave the driving to the experts. Watch the scenery of the Swedish countryside stream by outside the windows on your way to the day's first stop, the Vada sea mounds. 

Walk around these enormous mounds, some almost 100 feet (30 meters) long and filled with 6th century treasures left by the Vendel Swedes, ancestors of the Viking Swedes. The day's next stop is the Vallentuna church, stopping at the Lingsberg England rune stone on the way. 

At the Viking parliament, your guide will paint a verbal picture of Viking men sitting in a powerful circle, making decisions for their people. Make a stop at Jarlabankes rune stone bridge in Täby to learn about Jarlabanke, the great Viking lord. Continue to Bro y Bro, a Viking grave vield and hear the story of Estrid, the most famous Viking woman in the region, before returning to your accommodations for drop-off at the end of your tour. This private tour ensures a flexible itinerary, plenty of time to ask questions, and undivided attention from your guide.

Charles was a Wonderful Guide
Chelsea K
, Nov 2018
We had a wonderful tour with great, in-depth information on the history of Vikings and Sigtuna the city. We got lucky and were able to enter a church that had been closed for 5 years for renovations so that was amazing. Had many great conversations with our guide and had a really great day overall. Thank you again!
