After disembarking the ship in Bergen, you fly to Oslo and check into your hotel. Centrally located and within walking distance of the bus station, the hotel is an ideal base for sightseeing. Despite being downtown and surrounded by city life, the rooms are quiet. If you have time, we suggest dining out at one of many nearby restaurants. Enjoy your evening and prepare for two exciting days in Norway's capital. It's sure to make a good impression!
City sightseeing and Norwegian cuisine
Make sure to eat a good breakfast because you have a full day of sightseeing ahead of you. Your guide will meet you at the hotel´s reception and take you on a guided walk to see downtown Oslo´s many highlights. Learn about this fast-growing European capital and visit its iconic Opera House, the Nobel Peace Center and National Gallery.
Oslo has a lot to offer and we cover all the main sights, but you will also have some time to explore the city on your own between activities. Your very centrally located hotel is a great starting point. Many attractions are within walking distance, whether it´s shopping, art, food or just people watching.
Come evening, you have a delicious meal to look forward to, based on traditional Norwegian ingredients and culinary pride. The marine-themed restaurant we visit is located along popular Aker Brygge. For starters, you may select such local seafood as scallops, klippfisk (dried cod), smoked salmon and caviar. For the main course, choose between Norwegian salmon or lamb, and for dessert, enjoy Norwegian brown cheese ice cream.
Oslo from above
After breakfast and checkout the next morning, your guide meets you at the hotel for another exciting day. Today, you visit Oslo's famous Holmenkollen ski jump, just 40 minutes from downtown by public transport. On our way up on the local metro train, enjoy views of Oslofjord as your guide shares interesting information about the popular Oslo recreational area we pass through.
We will stop at the wooden Holmenkollen church before proceeding to the Holmenkollen ski arena, where the FIS World Cup Nordic ski festival takes place every winter.
Your guide will show you the ski museum and take you to the top of the nearly 200 ft high ski jump tower for panoramic views of Oslo and the surrounding area.
You then take the metro train back down to your hotel to collect your luggage, relax, look through your photos and relive your Norwegian city adventure.
