Meet and Greet at Oslo International Airport
Oslo International Airport, Gardermoen is located 50 km (31 miles) from the downtown Oslo. We take you comfortably to your hotel.
Experience Oslo's city life, cuisine and culture
Oslo city centre is quite small. We recommend picking a hotel in or close to the city centre (which we can book). Oslo is made for strolling around, and of course we will guide you.
Here is our modern opera building, evoking an ice berg rising up from the sea. You can even can walk on the marble roof.
Medieval Oslo - the Akershus Fortress
One of the most important buildings in the city center is Akershus Fortress, built in 1300. Open for walks during the day and early evening. There is also a nice restaurant overlooking the old harbor and the City Hall.
The Royal Palace
The main street is Karl Johan Street, named after the Swedish/Norwegian King who started the construction of our Royal Palace. And today the residence of King Harald and Queen Sonja.
Norway is a democratic Kingdom and our Parliament situated on the main street of Karl Johan.
Oslo City Hall
The most prominent building facing the sea is the Oslo City hall, well-known as the venue of the Nobel Peace Price ceremony every year.
Vigeland Sculpture Park
Some kilometres west of the city centre is the great Vigeland Sculpture Park, open all day and night to the public. The several hundred outdoor sculptures illustrate the circle of life. We are happy to give you a guided tour of the park.
Holmenkollen Ski Jump and View
Oslo is situated between the fjord and the forest. The forest is called Oslo Marka, and is our main area of recreation, particularly in winter since we love skiing. We take you up to the Holmenkollen hill to see our national symbol of skiing, the large ski jump tower, from which you will have a fantastic view of the city.
The Open Air Folk Museum
Returning to the fjord, we take you to the Bygdø peninsula were we will tour our main museums like the Viking Museum, Open Air Folk Museum, Maritime Museum, Kon-Tiki and the popular Polar– or the Fram Museum.
Viking Ship Museum
The Viking Ship museum contains three authentic ships from the 9th century. These were originally used for the Viking burial ceremony and were excavated by Norwegian archaeologists more than hundred years ago. The Vikings were buried with all the earthly goods they might need in the afterlife, including their ships. These exhibition are unique in the world. Read more about the Vikings and interesting Viking attractions in Norway.
Maritime Heritage with polar ship Fram and the KonTiki raft
Norway is a country of mountains and fjords. Thus the main “road” for transportation of goods and people has always been the sea. In the Maritime Museum you will find a boat more than two thousand years old and discover lots of interesting facts about our history as a modern shipping nation.
Polar exploration was important in late 1800 and early 1900. There was a race to conquer the North pole and the South pole. In the Polar Museum you find the two authentic polar ships Fram (-forward) and Gjøa.
Another famous Norwegian explorer was Thor Heyerdal, who set out from Peru to prove there had been contact between South America and the Pacific islands in ancient times. Next to the Polar museum the original Kon Tiki raft is on display.
