Visit Sweden's 'oldest town'! Traces of the Viking merchant town of Birka go back to the 8th century, and its remains are now an UNESCO World Heritage site.
Located just 30 kms away from Stockholm, you can catch a ride to Birka with one of the many boats leaving from central Stockholm. A guided tour and visit to the small viking museum is included in the ticket!
The island is only open during the summer months, with the most activities available in July.
APPROXIMATELY 2 HOUR BOAT RIDE FROM STOCKHOLM
