NEW TOUR 2018

Long Live The King

Throughout its’ history, Norway has almost always been ruled by kings. In most of cases the power and thrown were inherited, in fewer cases monarchs were elected. There have also been times when pretenders to the throne had to fight for tit in battle. Sometimes, only Norway was subordinate to the king, but there was also a period when the Norwegian, Danish and Swedish crowns belonged to one person!

During the tour we shall talk about rulers of the past and present, as well as the future of the royal power in Norway.

We shall visit Akershus fortress and together will find symbols of kings of different eras. You will learn what the fortress was used for before and if you like, we can walk along halls and dungeons of the old Royal Palace (opened only on summer and entrance fee is applicable) where some of the monarchs found their rest.

Do you want to know what gifts Queen Sonia brings to First Ladies of different countries during the official visits? I shall introduce you to Her favorite place for such purchases. Perhaps, you would want to make the same surprise to yourself or your family and friends.

In addition we can visit jewelers  – the official suppliers of the royal court. Their silver deserves a special attention!

We shall also share with you a recipe of a delicious dessert, which was created especially for Queen Maud more than hundred years ago. It cannot be tried at any of cafes, but you can cook it at home. The recipe is simple and tasty, but may ruin your diet!

If our tour starts in the morning, it will be a good opportunity to complete it by watching the guard changing ceremony at a square in front of the Royal Palace.

The cost of the tour includes visiting the fortress and shops (admission is free), but in order to get inside the modern Royal Palace, you need to order another excursion, which is carried out exclusively by the Royal Palace staff either in English or in Norwegian. Visit of a modern Royal Palace and tours through it halls and rooms are held from the end of June till the beginning of August. Tickets need to be booked and paid in advance

Day 3

Visit Rosendal

What to do in Rosendal:

Rosendal Palace

Rosendal Palace is located at the Djurgården Hunting Park and was built in the 1820s for King Karl XIV Johan, the first Bernadotte.

Rosendal was originally a summertime pleasure retreat. It has never been a residence in the modern sense of the word. It was merely intended as an escape from the formalities of the court life at the Royal Palace.

One of the leading architects of the time, Fredrik Blom, received a royal commission to draw and build the palace building. The building was produced in the fashion of a prefabricated house.

The palace stands today largely as it did in Karl Johan’s lifetime, which makes Rosendal a unique documentation of the European Empire style, also known as the Karl Johan style in Sweden.

The palace is open to visitors for guided tours in the summer months.

The Barony in Rosendal

The Barony in Rosendal is the smallest “palace” in Scandinavia, the only one of its kind in Norway and a major attraction in Western Norway.

Among other things, the manor house is famous for its magnificent Renaissance garden and its rich calendar of cultural events, including concerts, courtyard theatre and art exhibitions.

The pleasant garden cafe is situated beside the herb garden.

Hattebergfossen and Furebergsfossen waterfalls

Just outside Rosendal and near the viewpoint Baroniet, there is a very nice waterfall called the Hattebergfossen. This is the unofficial name but used by locals. Access is easy, so why not to pay a visit?. North of Rosendal, there is the magnificent Furebergsfossen along road 551 — this one you really shouldn’t miss.

The Essential Bergen Walking Tour

Take a tour around Bryggen with its bright, colourful buildings and sailing boats. This is what most of the world thinks Norway looks like. Proceed to Haakon Hall, the Royal Castle with its magnificent Rosenkrantz Tower. Take a picture or two of the famous fishing market, while our guide is telling you about the city’s rich history.

Tour guide available in the following languages:

Hansa Teutonica and Fløibanen

We will visit the Hanseatic Museum and see how merchants in the 18th century lived and worked. A beautiful view waits for you at the top of the funicular Fløibanen. There are some lovely trails and paths to hike in the forests at the top of the mountain, in case if you feel adventurous.
