What You Can Expect

Selected Oslo City Tour Including the Viking Ship Museum

See top Oslo attractions on your sightseeing tour!

Meet your guide at Oslo City Hall, and then hop aboard your luxury coach for your city tour. Relax as you travel through the center of the Norwegian capital, and listen to your guide explaining Oslo’s culture and sights.

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. 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. 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 March 17 and October 17 through December 31) or by boat (March 18 through October 16).

A wonderful way to take in interesting sights in a short, yet organized itinerary. The sculpture gardens were the highlight for me. Also enjoyed going to the ski jump area. The Viking Ship Museum was so crowded as there seemed to be NO crowd control that it was difficult to enjoy this as much as the other tour stops. Highly recommend this....price well worth it !!!! Don't miss the sculpture gardens...you will be blown away.

On time and offered the best of Oslo in the short amount of time that we had. Tour guide was well versed in all three venues that we visited. Had ample time to really see and learn about them. Very reasonably priced.
Would recommend for anyone with limited time in Oslo

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 was excellent...only wished we could have had a little more time in Vigeland Sculpture Park! Viator's customer service was excellent as well.....our ship was held up in getting port clearance and we were close to missing the tour. I called the local number that Viator provided and the young lady communicated back and forth between us and the tour guide until we were able to finally make the tour.

The tour was a great way to see the highlights of Oslo in a few short hours. The guide's English was very easily understood and I believe she followed up each English highlight once again in German. I thought the time spent in the Viggeland Scuplture Park could have been a touch longer and the time spent in the Viking Museum a touch shorter.
