What to expect

Join us on this day dedicated to the Vikings. During the tour, you will sense the presence of history, filled with memories of war, trade and sea voyages, to get a feeling of how life was in the Viking Era. At the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde, you will get insight into the Vikings’ craftsmanship and see the beautiful and impressive original ships they used to travel to faraway places. At the remarkable UNESCO listed Roskilde Cathedral, the famous Viking kings of Harald Bluetooth and Sweyn Forkbeard are buried alongside almost 40 Danish kings and queens. The Cathedral is one of the earliest examples of gothic architecture in Northern Europe. Get ready to hear stories of how Sweyn Forkbeard conquered England as well as tales of Harold Bluetooth. You will not only follow in the footsteps of the Vikings, you will be at the cradle of Danish civilization in Lejre, one of the most important power centers during the Viking Era and Iron Age dating from 500-1000 AC - home today to a unique complex of long houses. At Lejre Museum, located in the Skjoldungernes Land national park, you will learn about ferocious myths and taste a glass of the legendary Viking drink mead, which legend has it “he who drinks mead is ensured eloquence and knowledge.” The tour also explores one of the best kept burial chambers from around 3000 BC, the Øm Passage Grave, where you can stand up inside the chamber. An English-speaking guide will take you along to all the sights and tell you all you need to know.
