Stockholm Central Station

  • Distance: 22.4 miles

Tivoli Gröna Lund

  • Stockholm
  • Distance: 1.47 miles

Teams traveled by ferry to reach this amusement park. One team member would have to ride the Fritt Fall drop tower, looking out across the park for an arrow pointing them to their next clue. It was located at the Ring Toss Booth. There, they would have to toss a ring so that it landed on the hat of a Travelocity Roaming Gnome. Once they did this, the booth operator would present them with the gnome. Teams' Detour information was written on the bottom of the gnome.

Bomb-Testing Facility / Viking Village

  • Skokloster
  • Distance: 26.5 miles/12.2 miles

Detour.png Detour:

Nobel Dynamite: Teams had to make their way to the bomb-testing facility. There, they had to fill enough sandbags with gravel to build a protective wall. Once their wall was safe, they would set off a charge of dynamite, revealing a buried metal box. Teams' next clue was inside.

Viking Alphabet: Teams had to find the Viking village, where they had to decode a message in Elder Futhark on a runestone. They would use smaller stones with runes and letters that would help them translate. The message would tell them to find the "Strong Viking", who would hand them their next clue.

Bögs Gård Farm

  • Upplands Väsby
  • Distance from Bomb-Testing Facility: 15.7 miles
  • Distance from Viking Village: 3.57 miles

SwitchbackRoadblock.png Switchback Roadblock: At this familiar location, teams found the first Switchback Roadblock. Who thinks they can spot a needle in a haystack? This Roadblock was a recreation of the one seen on the third leg of The Amazing Race 6. The chosen team member had to enter a field filled with 186 hay bales. They had to unpackage and unroll the hay bales until they eventually found one of only seven race flags hidden inside of one of the hay bales. Once they found one, they could proceed to the Pit Stop.
