    Places in Scandinavia to Visit for Nordic Heathens to Connect Religiously

    This summer I will be visiting family in Sweden for a month and I wish to make strong connections with my Norse gods. A religious pilgrimage if you will. I know of Gamla Uppsala primarily. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Personal stories will be informative and appreciated as well.

    Uppsala is good. There are also many old rune stones in Sweden.
    You should visit the old Norwegian place called Bohuslän. Alot of rock carvings there. In Stockholm there are alot of dark age museums. In Denmark I would recommend the viking ship museum in Roskilde, and in Oslo the vikingship museum and oldssaksamlingen. And also to visit some old stave churches of the western type, the last hov builder's were the first stave church builders. Urnes stave church is one of the most beatiful we have, with Nidhogg on the portal.
    Voluspå was most likely written in Trondheim where there was a big hov, it's mentioned in the sagas. The jarl kept a big gathering of skalds, most likely from Iceland. The hov was burned down and now one of Norway's oldest stone churces is on the old heathen sacred grounds.

    Lade gård is still standing, from here the jarls controlled much of Norway. Also the largest viking ship ever built, Ormen Lange, was made on Lade in Trondheim.
    There is also a museum for bronse age and viking age there, they have old fertility stones called "fallos" in Norwegian. And also alot of old weapons, tools, jewelery etc.
