Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at Oslo City Hall, and then hop aboard your luxury coach for your city tour. Relax as you travel through the center of the Norwegian capital, and listen to your guide explaining Oslo’s culture and sights.

Stop at Vigeland Park to walk around the world-renowned collection of sculptures by the beloved Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland. Home to more than 200 bronze and granite sculptures, the park is one of Norway’s top attractions, drawing visitors from around the world. Look out for the 46-foot (14-meter) Monolith sculpture, as well as Sinataggen, a model of an angry London boy.

Continue to the famous Holmenkollen Ski Jump, used during the 1952 Winter Olympics, it has since been totally rebuilt and the new center opened in 2010. Enjoy roughly 20 minutes of free time to soak up the views over Oslo and take photos. Perched on top of a hill, the iconic ski jump is known for being one of the city’s finest vantage points. This is a photo stop only.

Next, you can choose to visit either the Fram Museum or Kon-Tiki Museum. At the Fram Museum (considered the best museum in Oslo) you can learn about brave Norwegian explorers and their famous polar expeditions and can also go on board the famous polar ship Fram. Alternatively, at the Kon-Tiki museum you can hear details of the Thor Heyerdahl’s incredible sea voyages and see the rafts he used for sailing on the oceans of the world.

From here you travel by coach back to the city center (January 1 through March 17 and October 17 through December 31) or by boat (March 18 through October 16).

  • Learned a lot about Oslo, and this was another day that was well worth it. The guide was very informative and we saw many interesting sights.

  • It is the best way to cover the most important sightseeing spot in the city in few hours. The tour was on time and organized. I love it.

  • I felt that I really got a true sense of the City, visiting tourist areas and locations off the beaten path. The Viking Ship Museum is very much worth a visit! Amazing to see the centuries-old ships that have been restored and displayed.

  • Good overall for the sights in Oslo.

  • Really nice tour. Anybody that goes on this tour will enjoy it.

  • Great job

  • Excellent tour that includes somewhat remote areas we would have ignore otherwise.

  • It was a solid tour and we saw lots of interesting things. I was interested in the Viking Ship Museum and of course there wasn and #39;t enough time there so I returned the following day and spent the morning. Could have left out the stop at the ski jump. Overall I would recommend it.

  • Very good tour. Saw most of the major sites (ski jump, Frogner Park, and Viking Ship museum) in Oslo. I and #39;d highly recommend this tour to others. A short ferry taxi back near the city hall which was near our hotel. Major shopping and restarants.

  • Enjoyed the tour - would have liked more time at Vigeland Park.
