Please note that there’s a distance of 5 km from Långnäs to the Viking Centre. If you are arriving without a transport of your own, you can call a taxi from Hitis (Per-Erik Fihlman +358 400 697 916). It’s also possible to rent bicycles from Kasnäs.

A good alternative is the water bus from Kasnäs, which takes you to the Rosala village harbour, about a 200-meter walk from the Viking Centre. See the water bus schedule and prices, and make a reservation. There are limited seats on the boat.
