The ingredients of this tour are the tough, red bearded warriors and traders who maraudered, conquered and traded with most of maritime western Europe and their descendants, Royal or commoner. You will reach the shallow but sheltered Roskilde Fjord which was a favoured base for the Vikings. Follow the shore of the fjord to Roskilde, where you visit the Viking Ship Museum which houses the remains of 5 Viking ships salvaged from the bed of the fjord and painstakingly preserved. Near by the Museum, lunch will be served at The Restaurant ‘Snekken’. Afterwards a short drive will take you to the centre of Roskilde, for a visit to the twin-spired Cathedral: until the early 15th century, Roskilde was the capital of Denmark - proof of its strategic importance in the early Middle Ages - and all Danish monarchs were buried here. Although no longer the capital, Danish Kings and Queens are still laid to rest in Roskilde. The tour will also include a photo shoot of Kirkerup Church – a beautiful contrast to the big Cathedral. The tour ends at Bella Center.
