NYNASHAMN - IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE VIKINGS

  • Learn about the Viking history of the area
  • See the decorated medieval Church of Ösmo

Duration2.5 - 3 hours
LimitationLimited capacity

Nynäshamn is an idyll in the southern archipelago of Stockholm and a place which has been inhabited since the Stone Age - a large number of prehistoric remains that are to be found in the area. The area also displays more Viking rune stones than any other community in Sweden. You will explore some of the history of the region on this tour today.

Departing, with your Swedish guides in Viking dress, you will drive along the coastal road, Strandvägen, which is a narrow road winding along the shores of the Baltic and from which the view of the archipelago is magnificent. You achieve a unique view of the open waters of the Baltic which is almost impossible to get elsewhere in the Stockholm area due to the numerous islands. In the years before World War I, rich people from all over Europe came to Nynäshamn to visit the famous health centre and casino called Nynäs Hafsbad. Today the buildings are restored and serve as a hotel and conference centre and again people from overseas come to relax and have a cold bath in the Baltic.

Continue through the small town centre before driving out into the country and along the old Viking road ‘of the rune stones’. This is one of the few remaining roads in Sweden that still winds in the same way it did during the era of the Vikings, around 1,000 years ago. Your guide will tell you about the Vikings and the adventures of Viking Toste, who in 1036 made the decision to join a Viking expedition to the Caspian Sea - an expedition from which he never returned. Several old rune stones can be seen along the way and a stop will also be made at the Stone of Toste, which is situated in the forest just a short walk from the coach.

In the 11th century the first Christian churches were built. In the small community of Ösmo you will visit one of the most interesting medieval churches in the area, the Ösmo Church. Dating back to the 12th century, it contains some murals by the well known church painter Albertus Pictor.  Continue your drive through beautiful rural areas, passing many typical red painted houses and farms. A short stop will be made at a small marina, before returning to your ship.
