  • See the archaeological complex at Birka
  • Learn about Viking life and culture
  • Relish the natural beauty and rich history of Björkö

Description

Depart by boat from Stockholm to the ancient Viking island of Björkö, upon which you'll discover one of Scandinavia's earliest urban settlements; Birka. Today Birka is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, boasting a Viking museum, graves, and reconstructed Viking living quarters. Often considered to be Sweden's first city, to this day there are visible traces of the people who spent their lives here, with archaeological excavations dating back to the late 19th-century. Learn about the development of Viking culture, from the archaic to the medieval, by which time Birka was a hub of Christian missionary activities, before its eventual collapse and decay in 11th century. Unearth traces of a time long gone and experience a fascinating immersion in Nordic history.
