The Oslo Highlights tour gives you a short introduction to some of Oslo’s main attractions.Departing from the base of the Akershus Fortress, your guide will provide an interesting commentary as you pass the City Hall, Parliament, National Theatre, the Royal Palace and up to the Holmenkollen Ski Jump, for excellent views over parts of the city and the Oslofjord.
Afterwards, a stop will be made at the Vigeland Sculpture Park, for an interesting guided walk around the many sculptures made out of iron and bronze. The artist, Gustav Vigeland, never explained his works in detail, leaving the interpretation to each beholder.
Leaving the Park, you will head towards the peninsula of Bygdøy, for a visit to the Viking Ship Museum. Here you will see the incredible craftsmanship of Viking ships. The ‘Gokstad’ is a classic Viking ship, while the ‘Oseberg’, which was dug out in 1904, is richly decorated and was probably used as a pleasure boat. The Museum holds a collection of sleds, implements and gold and silver jewellery found with the ships.
