Trip Info

Take a guided 7-hour history tour to a recent UNESCO World Heritage site of Markim-Orkesta, just north of Stockholm. See amazing rune stones and immerse yourself in Viking history. Have a day away from the city and enjoy the Swedish traditional countryside. Enjoy the real Sweden.

Markim-Orkesta are two church parishes filled with history from all eras of Sweden’s past. This time traveling experience includes the Bronze age, Viking age and other eras in Swedish history. Travel by vehicle (car, minivan or bus depending on group size) with a very knowledgeable local guide to this UNESCO World Heritage Candidate site. Come and learn about Viking culture, feel enchanted by their magic runes and Old Norse mythology. Learn about how Bronze age "Swedes" buried their dead and how Christianity changed Swedish society forever. This tour will make you understand how Sweden has developed through history and how its past has helped shape this modern nation.

After meeting up in central Stockholm, the tour will travel by vehicle toward Markim-Orkesta. Upon arrival, take a walking tour or further transported tour depending on your choice. You will travel through history at Markim-Orkesta and experience different eras and aspects of Swedish history. See the ruins of the very likely birthplace of King Vasa, the man who reformed the Swedish state and church from Catholicism to Lutheran Protestantism. Hear about his life and controversial rule.

After hearing the intriguing history of King Vasa, journey on to a Christian Viking graveyard. Hear about the mighty burial rituals of the Vikings and how they abruptly vanished after Sweden was Christianized. You’ll also visit a local church which holds 6 rune stones on its land and hear the tale about the mighty and rich Viking Ulv who plundered England three times. See the splendid frescos of the medieval church and feel the breaths of Medieval Swedes through the stone walls as you learn about their religious lives.

This and a lot more is promised on this half-day tour from Stockholm. Welcome to old Sweden.
