  • Visited the island 24 September (closing season). The trip was devoted to the anniversary of 950 battle of Hastings, in honor of that, apart from the sightseeing tour of the island (in English or Swedish), was presented to show the Vikings with demonstration of weapons and combat skills. All this took place in a very warm and friendly atmosphere, despite the belligerence of the ancient inhabitants of the island). Insanely liked Guide accompanying us during the whole trip, with excellent acting, great sense of humor and desire to assist you in every respect). Tickets can be bought in advance, in this case, you are the first to be allowed to ship, but if will remain places allowed uncertified (coupon can be bought directly on the deck after the departure, the price remains the same-390 CZK). The island is really very beautiful, with incredible landscapes, views of Lake Mälaren, with šastaûŝimi sheep everywhere and a huge number of mounds with the Vikings. The trip really worth it to spend on her 6:00. Recommend!

  • The island of the viking and the go back in time. Enjoy the viking dress entertainment and enjoy the viking game too. 
  • We travelled from Stockholm to Birka through an organized tour with English speaking guide. Overall well organized, with the possibility to have lunch on board by prior appointment. The island is very beautiful and wild, very pleasant to walk, from a landscape point of view has some breathtaking views. Very cute Viking Museum. Highly recommended but only with a nice sunny day.
