Make your way to a centrally-located meeting point in Oslo, where you’ll meet a local guide for this 3-hour walking tour of the city. Take in the key highlights of downtown, from the old Nobel Peace center to the Oslo City Hall, the Parliament building, and the quirky Opera House, home to the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet.
Downtown Oslo makes for perfect people watching, and you can take advantage of your time with a private guide to ask questions about Norwegian culture, from the time of the original Vikings to the modern day. Use public transit to head to the Viking Ship Museum, where you’ll see three of the best-preserved Viking ships in the world. Learn how the distinctive wooden ships were built, sunk, and eventually excavated by scientists, then find out what’s known and what remains a mystery about Viking culture and daily life.
This tour concludes at the Viking Ship Museum: the guide will provide easy-to-follow instructions on how to return to central Oslo, and you’ll be free to keep exploring the Viking Ship Museum on your own or continue to one of the many museums located nearby.
