Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
We offer hotel pick up at all central hotels, ports and other accommodations within 5km from Stockholm central station. If you're in old town where it is not possible to get in by car we may ask you to walk a few minutes to another location where we pick you up. If you are outside the pick up zone we will give you directions to a meeting place. If you are unsure if you're in or out please email us..

Pick up normally starts at 09.00 or 09.30. For the shorter tours 3-5h 09.30 is the normal pick up time. For the longer tours, 8h:s, 09.00 is our usual pick up time for the first guests. We will be in touch two days in advance of a public tour with your final starting time, if you want to know in beforehand or want that we arrange a fixed time for you please contact us by email.

In wintertime we may due to the low light time ask if it is possible for you to do a earlier starting time (if not we do the set time of the tour) but than we contact well in advance of your date.

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
Meet your guide and small tour group at the Central Train Station in Stockholm. From there, board a tour vehicle and head north through the countryside, feeling yourself move back in time as you travel. 

Stop first at Broby, a Viking graveyard, to learn about the only identified Viking woman's skeleton in Sweden, well-known as Estrid. 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; your guide will read it out loud in Old Norse.

At the Viking parliament, imagine the powerful leaders making important decisions on that very spot. Continue to Vallentuna church to see a famous collection of Jarlabanke's rune stones.

At the end of your tour, return to central Stockholm for drop-off at your departure point.

It was different experience than Stockholm city. You get to see the real historical footprints. If you don't have enough time to see the whole Viking history and want to experience something different than a big city, it might be a good opportunity for you.

Angus, Jonathan, and Helan were all great, we have three small children, 5, 3, and 1, and they helped us to make sure we had safety seats for them all which in itself was amazing. But the tour itself was wonderful they knew a ton about Vikings and rune stones, hard to get more from a 3 hour tour!!
