Tour description provided by Viator

Combine Oslo's top attractions with the Oslo Fjord’s tranquil scenery on a 7-hour combo experience that comprises a city tour and a fjord cruise! Spend five hours exploring the city by coach, enjoying visits to Vigeland Park and the Holmenkollen Ski Jump (outside view) and touring two of Oslo’s most famous museums: Fram Museum with the polar ship "Fram" and the Viking Ship Museum. Afterwards, relax on a 2-hour boat cruise on Oslo Fjord and see pretty islands dotted around the coast while learning about their history - a perfect way to end a sightseeing day!
Meet your guide on Haakon VIIs gate (street), not far from the Western side of the City Hall, and board your comfortable coach for your full day city tour. Sit back and relax as you travel and listen to your guide explaining Oslo’s history, culture and sights. Your first stop is the famous Holmenkollen Ski Jump, a national symbol and the venue for the 1952 winter Olympics. Enjoy roughly half an hour of free time to ogle the dramatic city vistas, take photos and explore the area. Then continue to Vigeland Park, home to a world-renowned collection of sculptures, all designed by the most prolific Norwegian sculptor, Gustav Vigeland. Walk around the granite and bronze sculptures while listening to your guide's explanations, then travel onwards to Bygdøy Peninsula, a rural city neighborhood where many of Oslo’s top attractions are found.  Enjoy a visit to the Fram Museum, where you can explore 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 polar ship, take some free time to browse the other exhibits and artifacts in the museum.  After your visit to the Fram Museum, explore together with your guide the Viking Ship Museum, home to 3 of the world's best preserved Viking ships and get an insightful introduction to the Viking Age.    Afterwards, drive back to the city centre and your guide will then take you on a 5-minute walk to the pier, where you will board a boat for a relaxing sightseeing cruise on the Oslo Fjord. Admire the sights of the city from the water, passing alongside the idyllic bays and islands of Oslo Fjord. The city’s scenic gem, the Oslo fjord is home to a number of islands that each boast individual landmarks and history. Hear of the kayaking, canoeing and fishing that take place around Oslo Fjord, and see picturesque holiday cottages dotted around the islands. Having enjoyed approx. two hours of cruising around the waters of Oslo fjord, step back onto dry land on the pier behind the City Hall, where your combo tour finishes for the day. Welcome back another time!
