Private guide

If you come as a group to Birka, or if you have special wishes, interests or needs, you can hire your very own guide. The guidance takes about one hour. We usually recommend larger parties and groups to hire a private guide. With your own guide you can plan your day at Björkö just as you want! Another advantage with a private guide is that you keep the group together and have a greater chance to ask questions and have a dialogue with the guide.

Price for private guide 2019:
2975 SEK excl. VAT
