Very brief visit by a guide whose English leaves something to be desired. Just a few stones with runs. By buying a small book on the traces of the Vikings in Sweden we would have been informed just as well if not more, especially since the visit runs 180€ for two and for 3 hours including travel. We didn't even have a little coffee, which wouldn't have ruined them. To avoid.

Almost nothing to see

Very expensive for what one sees, a couple of stones. I would not recommend
