Step back in time to discover some of the key Viking sites and landmarks dating back to the 11th century.
What to Expect
Your tour's first stop is the Jarlabanke runestones, written in Old Norse in the 11th century. Afterwards, head to Vallentuna Church, built in the late 12th century. During times of unrest the church was used as a place of refuge with ladders leading up to a second floor. During the centuries the church has been rebuilt and expanded a number of times.
At a large viking settlement, in a position guaranteed to catch the eye of people arriving, you will see a large and richly ornate runic carving, hammered into a slab of rock. This is an archaeological site from the late Iron Age and early Medieval period which is also connected with the names and boundaries of the villages. Continuing through beautiful Swedish countryside, stroll the atmospheric streets of Sweden's oldest town, before returning to Stockholm.
