Sweden, especially Stockholm, is known for its famous Viking history. Beginning in the 8th century, Swedish Vikings, known as the Rus', started traveling to several countries in the east and south, as far as Iraq. These explorers, warriors, merchants and pirates raided, plundered and settled in various areas of Europe, Asia and the North Atlantic until the 11th century. Your guide - dressed in a Viking costume - will show you the most important Stockholm sites all the while telling you stories about the Viking's pillaging, plundering and leadership during the Viking Age.
Walk with your guide along picturesque cobblestone streets through Stockholm's Old Town, Gamla Stan, lined with cozy cafés and full of rich history. You will have ample opportunities to take photographs of such attractions as the Royal Palace and the Swedish Parliament.
