Tour description

Visit Frogner Park (commonly known as Vigeland Park) and top museums on a half-day city tour of Oslo. Travel between each must-visit attraction by coach, and learn about each site from your guide. Admire impressive sculptures by Gustav Vigeland, enjoy a photo stop at a world-famous ski jump, and then enjoy walking tours around either Fram Museum or Kon-Tiki Museum (your choice) and the Viking Ship Museum.

Meet your guide at Oslo City Hall, and then hop aboard your luxury coach for your city tour. Travel in comfort through the center of the Norwegian capital as your guide explains Oslo’s culture and sights. 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 completely rebuilt and the new center opened in 2010. Enjoy roughly 30 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 and choose between a visit to the Fram Museum or the Kon-Tiki Museum. At the Fram Museum, you can see the polar ship Fram, a wooden vessel that traveled along the Arctic Ocean in the late 1800s and reached the South Pole in 1911. Take a tour of the powerful schooner — the first one to reach the South Pole and wrote history— and learn about life at sea in the harsh polar conditions. Alternatively, visit the Kon-Tiki Museum, named after the raft that the Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl sailed on between Peru and Polynesia. See Kon-Tiki raft and also the equally impressive Ra II and learn about Heyerdahl’s intrepid expeditions.  After touring one of these museums, continue with a visit to the famous Viking Ship Museum and get a fascinating insight to the Viking world.  Afterwards, return to your coach to finish the tour with a drop-off back at Oslo City Hall or you can choose to spend the rest of your day on Bygdøy Peninsula .
