The largest city of it’s time, Istanbul was known as Miklagard or “the great city” by the Vikings. For more information on the Vikings relations to the Miklagard try searching the Varangian Guard, the name of the Viking mercenary unit in service of the Byzantine Emperrors. Miklagard Travel was founded in 2004, and the company websites; miklagardtravel.com, istanbulhotels.dk, istanbulhotels.no and istanbulhotels. se were launched to provide inexpensive accomodation and ground services for the Scandinavian travellers visiting Istanbul and rest of Turkey.Through the past few years majority of our clientele have been travel agents and tour operators in Scandinavian countries, so we have transformed our operations to become a local provider for our Scandinavian partners.Therefore online hotel bookings will no longer be available through our websites. Yet, we did create a ‘private travel’ department to consult individuals and groups to provide transport, guide and hotel accomodations.So weather it’s a romantic weekend for two or a off-the-beaten-track tour of Turkey for a special interest group don’t make any plans before you contact us!
