What You Can Expect
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 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.
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. See the Oseberg and Gokstad, boats that were built from oak in the 9th century, as well as the jewels, tapestries, sleighs and other artifacts that were discovered on board. From here you travel by coach back to the city center (January 1 through April 3 and October 6 through December 31) or by boat (April 4 through October 5).
Administration was excellent.
Tour guide was first rate - lots of very interesting information and a very approachable manner.
Good venues - not too many sites visited which meant you could really have a good look around.
Our guide Maria was excellent as she provided a clear commentary and took the tour at an appropriate pace. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you. Janet Matthews
