Along the way, you will see the main attractions of Uppsala Cathedral, University and the Holy Trinity Church. Uppsala was also the home of iconic Swedish King Gustav Vasa, who is regarded as the founder of modern Sweden. An incredible history dating back to Viking times and the spirit of learning remain at Uppsala’s heart.

Free time for lunch break is also part of the itinerary.

Once a major marketplace for the Vikings, the town of Sigtuna is not only the oldest existing Swedish town, but has kept also its original historic atmosphere with traditional wooden houses, church ruins and a street originating in the Viking age. A guided tour to the red-brick St. Mary´s Church built by the Dominican order is also part of the itinerary. During the walking tour, you will be immersed into the ambiance by strolling to admire the Stora Gatan, Sigtuna Boardwalk and ruins of St. Olaf’s Church.

There is free time reserved to discover plenty of unique shops, cafés, and restaurants along the winding old town streets.

Day trip tracing the steps of ancient Vikings comes to an end with a return drive to Stockholm.
