Try the viking life and stay at the Viking village Storholmen outside Norrtälje.
Storholmen vikingaby is beautifully situated by lake Erken and a nature reserve with centuries-old oaks. You stay in an authentically built Viking house.
Try on viking life!
You cook your own authentic meal over the fire, and in the evening you can try the sauna and jump in the lake. The brave one may jump from the lookout on the rocks. Maybe you dare to take a twilight walk among the 165 burial mounds, as you can look for our ravens, which thrive in the crowns of oaks.
