Keep your eyes open for the Norse invaders! Well, not really. Not since medieval times have the Vikings traveled along this footpath in England. The Viking Way takes travelers from the Humber Bridge in North Lincolnshire to Oakham in Rutland and is waymarked with yellow discs featuring a viking helmet. That’s 147 miles through farmlands, valleys, and quaint villages, past ancient stone churches, historic monuments, Lincolnshire Wolds (one of only forty six locations designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), and the Lincoln Cathedral (the highest building in the world – in 1311! – and the site of scenes from the Da Vinci Code). Step back in history as you follow in the footsteps of the Vikings!
