Oslo

Norway

Even if you visit another region of Norway, it’s worth spending a day or two here on sightseeing and activities.

Oslo is the capital of Norway, by any definition. It is the economic, scientific and cultural heart of the country. The perfect size for exploring on foot, the city boasts world-class museums, a lively nightlife, and plenty of outdoor activities for energetic people.

It’s one of the safest capitals in Europe and one of the most sparsely populated. You can get from the centre to barren forests in half an hour on the subway.

Key Facts

1/3

Aker Brygge

A former shipyard and a great leisure destination today, Aker Brygge is a magnet for tourists and locals alike, with over 60 shops and 30 restaurants offering top brand names and fine food. You will always find a place to just sit here and admire the views of the fjord and the city, despite the crowds around you.

The site is included in the following tours:

The Essential Oslo walking tour
Walking Tour: Oslo transformed

 

Akershus Fortress

Akershus Fortress is a symbol of the city and the oldest military building in Norway. You will enjoy the wonderful view of the city and the fjord. Be careful – there’s no fence on the walls.

We offer you to participate in the following tours:

Gustav Vigeland Sculpture Park

The Gustav Vigeland Sculpture Park is an attraction for tourists from all over the world. But not many people realise that the park is also a fantastic rose garden and has a huge recreation area. Dedicate at least a couple of hours to visiting Frognerparken. Picnics on the grass are allowed, just remember to clean up.

 

The site is included in following tours:

Norwegian cultural heritage: Vigeland

 

Oslo museums

Oslo has a lot of museums. You will find the historical museum and the National Gallery right in the city centre. There are several maritime museums and the Folkemuseum located on Bygdoy Island, easily accessible by public transport. And if you want to swim in the fjord, you can do it here on the beach.

The site is included in following tours:

Folkemuseum and Viking Ship Museum

Fram and Kon-tiki

 

Oslo Summer Park

Oslo Summer Park is divided into nine trails of varying degrees of difficulty. There are over 150 elements in the park, which also includes 900 m of ziplines. Entry into the climbing park includes all the necessary equipment and training for a safe and thrilling day, high in the treetops. You are free to bring your own food to the park’s barbeque and picnic areas. The park also has a waffle stand. Note: the bike park will be closed this summer, and the lifts will not be in service. The bicycle trails will still be open, however, and the park hopes that cyclists will find their way to the trails anyway.

Zipline

The best view in Oslo is right at the top of the ski jumping tower, Holmenkollen. From there, you have a chance to enjoy the same views and sensation of speed as the ski jumpers do! The zipline takes you from the very top of the Holmenkollen jumping tower to the bottom, as if you were jumping on skis. The line itself is 361 metres / 1185 feet long and the difference in altitude is 107 metres / 351 feet. There is no age limit – the oldest jumper is 93 and the youngest only 3! Children under 40 kg may jump in tandem with an adult.

For individuals and small groups (1-8)

Fishing in Oslo

Oslo fjord is a gorgeous fishing place. Fish population around the capital is stable and you have a chance to get practically any sort of local sea fish you ever heard of. Sea fishing is allowed and free, but you mast have own fishing equipment. You’ll see plenty of people fishing around the harbour area – talk to them about good spots.

Unlike sea fishing, fresh water fishing requires permit. You can read more about it here: Visit Norway

We offer fishing tours on motor cruiser for families and small groups up to 8 people. Bestseller, best for kids!

Activity park Oslo

This is truly a great way to entertain your family if you have kids, as it’s challenging for both mind and body. The Oslo Sommerpark has a main area with 13 different canopy walks amongst the trees at Tryvann. The “walk” is, however, somewhat misleading, as you will be climbing, ziplining, crawling and much more, high above the ground. The different trails are marked according to difficulty. Before you are allowed to “loose”, everybody must go through a safety briefing. A climbing harness and helmet is compulsory and included in the entrance fee. There is one trail for the very youngest visitors, then a few for those between 110 and 140 cm tall, and many more for those taller than 140 cm.

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.
