Erik the Red's Viking Ruins

We cross Erik's Fjord by boat and go ashore at the sheep breeding settlement Qassiarsuk, situated on the very spot where Erik the Red settled in 985 AD and named his farm "Brattahlið". We visit the ruins of Erik's farm and Thorhildur's church, the first Christian church on the American continent. This tour is guided.

Dear Susie, Sonia and I feel very fortunate to have found Nordic Saga Tours online when we first started talking about wanting to plan a trip to Scandinavia. Working with you has been a treat and we both really appreciated your friendly demeanor and how you asked all of the right questions to get this vacation going smoothly. We thoroughly enjoyed our adventures through Copenhagen, Oslo, Helsinki, Stockholm, and everywhere in between! The hotels were very comfortable, no complaints there, and centrally located which was a nice bonus. For those two weeks, having the reservations for dinner each night and how the sightseeing tours were all organized in advance for us, we were able to devote all of our time to simply enjoying ourselves rather than rushing around and planning and worrying about missing out on any cool locations in each city. While we were definitely exhausted each night, it was worth it. We appreciated the professional way in which the planning and preparations were managed and we feel confident in recommending Nordic Saga Tours to anyone intending to travel to Scandinavia in the future. Many thanks for making it all so easy! Shelby Willis and Sonia Espinoza
