Head to Vigeland Sculpture Park, and on the way, see some of the city notable buildings such as the Akershus Fortress, the Parliament Building, the new Opera House and the Royal Palace.


Vigeland Sculpture Park, created and completed by Gustav Vigeland. Centrally placed in the park is the 55-foot-high monolith featuring 121 stone figures of men, women, and children climbing on top of each other, in their struggle for life. There are more than 200 sculptures in the park, made of stone and bronze, all symbolizing the different stages in the life of mankind. Your guide will walk you through the park while explaining the different sculptures and monuments.


Continue through beautiful residential areas of Oslo past the Holmenkollen Ski Jump, built here in 1892 and was the main venue of the 1952 winter Olympic Games. Stop at a viewpoint for a fantastic view of the city and the fjord far below. Lunch will be served at a hotel nearby.


Your scenic drive takes you to the Bygdoy Peninsula for a visit to the Viking Ship Museum, housing three authentic longboats from Viking times. The museum also houses a large collection of items found onboard the ships. Next to the Viking Ship Museum is the Open-Air Folk Museum. Here, you can get a glimpse of traditional Norwegian culture and history. The museum features 150 authentic buildings from different regions. You’ll see one of the country’s oldest structures, Gol Stave Church, from the 13th century.
