Visit our Scandinavian Folklore and Vaesen tours
At the moment there are only two Swedish Folklore tours in Stockholm and these are ours.
We’re offer you a exiting journey with a expert knowledgeable folklore guide with stories ranging back all the way from the Viking age at to 19th C.

You’ll get all from innocent and strange love magic to the dark uses of bones and blood from the time of the gallows and execution sites in 19th C.
A big part of the tour are strange stories and tales of the invisible and often shape-shifting bloodthirsty creatures from the Folklore called Vaesen. You’ll meet a big range of Vaesen on this tour as well as some old protection rituals to be safe from them.

Some of these above we got in tales all the way from the Medieval and Viking times.
