Ragnfrid’s saga

Ragnfrid’s saga is a Viking ride where you get to follow along on a trip to the Viking Age. The journey begins at Frösala Farm with Ragnfrid and her husband Harald. Then you proceed to go on a journey where you witness plundering in the west and slave trade in the east. With sounds, light and atmospheric environments you travel through the 11-minute journey that is told by Ragnfrid herself.

Ragnfrids saga is offered in the following languages: Swedish, English, Russian, Finnish, Chinese, Spanish, Italian, French and German.

Good to know about Ragnfrid’s saga

  • We recommend that children under the age of 7 go in adult company as the Viking ride can be considered a bit scary by some.
  • For those with hearing impairment, there are scripts for the Viking ride printed in Swedish and English. Ask for these down in the ride.
  • Wheelchairs are not possible to be brought onboard the ride, but one of the carts has a foldable side which makes it easier to move from the wheelchair to the wagon. In the wagon you must sit with bent legs.
