What You Can Expect
Stop at Frogland Park to walk around a 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 The Angry Boy (Sinnataggen).
Continue to the famous Holmenkollen Ski Jump (photo stop only), used during the 1952 Winter Olympics, it has since been totally rebuilt and the new centre 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.
Travel onward to Bygdøy Peninsula, a rural city neighborhood where many of Oslo’s top attractions are found. Visit the Viking Ship Museum for a tour and learn about Norway's rich Viking past while viewing some of the world’s best-preserved Viking ships. Continue to the nearby Fram Museum to see the polar ship Fram, a wooden vessel that traveled along the Arctic Sea in the late 1800s. Take a tour of the powerful schooner — the first boat to reach the South Pole — and learn about life at sea in the harsh polar conditions. After touring the museum, take some free time to browse the exhibits and artifacts.
Stop for lunch at the museum’s on-site cafe (own expense), before visiting your final attraction: Kon-Tiki Museum (optional in alternative to Fram Museum). The museum is named after the raft that Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl sailed on between Peru and Polynesia; see it and other boats such as the equally impressive Ra II. Hear tales of Heyerdahl’s intrepid expeditions from your guide, and then return to your coach to finish with a drop-off back at Oslo City Hall.
We met our very informative guide at City Hall to be told it was -16 degrees in Oslo that morning. Certainly was chilly waiting for the tour coach to arrive,however it was lovely and warm once we were on board. She was a delightful lady who knew all the history of the sights we visited. All venues were very interesting and well worth seeing. Some were a little rushed due to time constraints which is understandable due to our busy itinerary on the day.
Great guide, very good tour!
Really nice tour. Our guide had a lot of local knowledge and was able to swap between languages for everybody on board. The Fram museum was great. Very nice city and a must do tour for first timers.
Great value with a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. We enjoyed visiting all the sites but the Polarship and Viking Ship museums were the highlights.

This tour covers a lot of places! Like most of the other reviewers, I wish there was less time at the ski jump and more time at the Viking Ship Museum and the Flan Museum. But, you also get to see the sculpture park as well. Our tour guide was very good and the bus was comfortable and had good commentary. We had seen the Fjords in a tour in Bergen, Norway so we skipped that part. If you have already seen the fjords elsewhere, you should skip it as well.
Oslo is a beautiful city!
Great value saw all major attraction on this tour
had a great tour of the sites! Was comfortable and informative!

Great all inclusive tour to see key points and some important museums. The tour took about 4 hours and moves from place to place pretty quick pace with little to no free time on your own. Bring your own water/snacks as this tour goes thru lunch time. They will issue earbuds to listen to either the canned points of interest in several languages, or live commentary form the tour guide. For those folks unsure where the pickup location is: look for the tour busses along the park next to the city hall entrance.
Fantastic day we saw so much our tour guide was great and gave us plenty of time to see everything whilst keeping the group moving so we could get to all the places this tour offers the ski jump and simulator were great all in all a very nice tour. Cheers George Ruth Bruce and Sue
The tour was a great way to see Oslo in a short period of time. We really enjoyed the sites visited and the great tour guide.
