Explore Tallinn Old Town and mysterious Viking lifestyle by learning how to through axe or spear in a Viking fortress
You will learn of the fascinating stories of the first Viking inhabitants of this Hanseatic pearl with visits both to the upper and lower old town. Located on the ancient fortress ruins, you will also find the Parliament building and the the Dome Church, dating back to the 13th century.
Half way down towards the lower town, once a center of medieval trade, you can revel in the legends of the Danish King Gardens. The charming lower town greets us with a unique atmosphere on the Town Hall Square. Today, no longer the seat of municipality, the venue boasts inviting outdoor cafés and hosts seasonal festivals and fairs.
After a short countryside drive, we will arrive to the Viking Village. Explore the Viking lifestyle by learning how to through an axe or a spear in an authentic Viking era fortress or hone your archery skills instead. A delicious local dish of pork, sauerkraut and herb potatoes, fit for a wild Viking will end the experience.
Our day and the time we start the tour is flexible and is meant to accommodate your schedule and interests.
I will recommend to you the most authentic souvenirs to buy from Tallinn and if wished you can have a short time for shopping as well.
