This year’s new attraction – Glamping at Birka the Viking City. This summer you have the opportunity to experience a real adventure at Birka. A different overnight stay in a luxury tent with views over Lake Mälaren. Enjoy the quiet and closeness to nature in combination with an amazing adventure – on your own or with a friend, a loved one or your family.
Glamping – Viking style
At Birka there are five tents with room for 2 to 4 people – Alfheim, Gimle, Noatun and Trudheim have room for two people and Ydalir can house a family of four. The interiors have a touch of Viking style and the tents are furnished with a queen-size bed, a lockable chest for your valuables, stools and a table. You will sleep well in the comfortable beds made with hotel-standard bedding. There is also a mosquito net above the beds. Shower and lavatories are available in the service building close to the glamping area - towels, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel is available in your tent.
Enjoy good Viking food – breakfast & dinner included
When checking in you get to make your choices from the breakfast menu and the breakfast is delivered directly to your tent in a basket at a prearranged time in the morning.
Your stay also includes a delicious Viking-style dinner served at the island’s own restaurant, Särimner. You can choose between a meat, fish or vegetarian dish.
