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.

Good overview of local Viking history

Gabriel was very knowledgeable and I learned a lot in our short time. Not knowing much at all about Viking history I found the tour fascinating and very worthwhile to see all of it up close. The town of Sigunta is quaint and historic and the stop at the coffeehouse at the end was a great way to cap the day. He also filled us in on the local Stockholm area as well and gave us tips on restaurants and museums to visit.

Thanks for the review. I agree that Gabriel is a great tour guide. I'm happy to hear that you liked your booked tour and Gabriel as a guide. I will send your regards to him when I meet him next time. Best Regards Jonathan

Hugely enjoyable and informative

This tour was, by far, the best experience I had during a four day visit to Stockholm. Nadia, our guide, was brilliant, with a huge depth of knowledge about the Vikings - and a remarkable ability to communicate that knowledge. Great sense of humour, and enthusiasm about her subject,too. She’s an absolute gem and Viator are fortunate to have her services as a guide. A memorable day!

Our guide Quentin was very nice and knowledgable. The visit to the small old town was definitly our favourite and the lake nearby was beautiful. The tour is a bit overpriced however but maybe that's also due to the Stockholm area. Would recommend this if you're very interested in Vikings.

Informative excursion to some Viking historic sites. Our guide was an archaeologist who specialized in that period. Well done. Highly recommended. Certainly a must for all of those who know little about Vikings and their impressive history and accomplishments.

Let me start off by saying I was intrigued at what this tour would be possibly covering, as I wanted to learn more about Vikings while in Stockholm and the Nordic countries. My pickup was changed last minute to save time from my hotel to central station, which made sense and I was not mad about at all. They dropped me back off at my hotel at the end. The tour itself was average. For the amount of time that was taken we got back into Stockholm around 4pm, so its more than a half day FYI, i wish there was more stuff that was covered. Spending 45 minutes to walk around/free time in Sigtuna was basically just of a waste of time. Angus and Jonathan are both nice/cordial and will gladly answer any questions you might have at any point. In my opinon, there is just too much time driving around and free time at Sigtuna to make it worth a day of your trip.

Lovely day away from the city but not too far away and brushing up on some Nordic history. Our guide was Angus, he had extensive knowledge on everything viking related accompanied with a great sense of humor.

The guides were very good and knowledgeable, but the proportion of driving to the locations vs. the content at the locations was a bit lopsided. I wished more time was spent on Viking history.

Don’t Bother with this tour

Very disappointing tour. Not much about Viking history but more a description of the 3 sets of rune stones we went to see. No tour of Sigtuna, just 55 minutes to walk around. Driver was good and personable but guide was very boring and not easy to follow.
