Why Go on a Tour of Oslo

No travel itinerary to Norway could be complete without a tour of Oslo. Besides being home to the Nobel Peace Prize award ceremony, held in the Oslo City Hall every year, and boasting the world's largest sculpture park, the capital city has a lot to offer for any type of traveler.

Situated at the head of the Oslofjord on the southern coast of Norway, it offers the right balance of culture, art, history, and nature-related tourist attractions, and many indoor and outdoor activities too!

One of the stops that should be included in any Oslo itinerary is, without a doubt, the Viking Ship Museum. It's the only place in the country that offers the opportunity to witness thousand-year-old Viking ships which are still fully intact! Another Oslo museum worth paying a visit to (for all who are interested in ships and the exploration age) is the Fram Museum. Here you'll find an exhibition of the Norwegian polar exploration and the famous wooden polar vessel. Furthermore, another place you should mark in your Oslo travels is the Munch Museum, providing a chance to discover over 28 thousand of art pieces created by the national artist Edvard Munch, including the famous "The Scream".

There are plenty of other landmarks you shouldn't miss out on while in the Norwegian capital, but if you are short on time, then the key attractions you need to see are the Royal Palace and the Frogner Vigeland Park, exhibiting the spectacular masterpieces by the famous sculpturer Gustav Vigeland, the sculptures are often described as unusual yet oddly captivating.

By the way, did you know the citizens of Oslo donate a Christmas Tree to London's Trafalgar Square every year? It is a way for Norwegians to show gratitude for British support during the Second World War. So, regardless of the time of the year, you plan to visit Norway, make sure to save some time for marvelous Oslo. Thus, don’t hesitate to explore the capital of Norway and browse our collection of popular tours. And, if you need assistance, we can help you choose the ideal travel option for you.
