After disembarking the ship in Bergen, you will fly to Oslo and check in to your hotel. Centrally located and within walking distance of the bus station, the hotel is ideal as a base for sightseeing and the rooms are quiet. If you have time, we recommend you dine out at one of the many nearby restaurants. Enjoy the evening and prepare yourself for two exciting days in Norway’s capital. It’s sure to make an impression!
City sightseeing and Norwegian cuisine
Make sure you eat a good breakfast, as you have a full day of sightseeing coming up. Your guide will meet you at the hotel reception and take you on a guided walk to see many highlights of Oslo’s city centre. Learn about one of the fastest growing capitals in Europe and visit the iconic Opera House, Oslo Nobel Peace Center and the National Gallery.
Oslo has a lot to offer! We will cover all the main sights, but you will also have some time on your own to explore the city in between activities. As your hotel is very centrally located, it is a great starting point. A lot of attractions are within walking distance, whether you seek shopping, art, food or just people watching.
Come evening time, you will have a delicious meal to look forward to, based on Norwegian ingredients and a proud food heritage. The marine-themed restaurant is located along the popular Aker Brygge. For starters, you will have a selection of what the sea has to offer – scallops, clipfish, smoked salmon and caviar. As a main course, you can choose between Norwegian salmon or lamb, and for dessert, you will get to taste Norwegian brown cheese ice cream.
Oslo from above
After breakfast and check-out, your guide will meet you at the hotel for another exciting day. Today, you’ll visit Oslo’s famous ski jump Holmenkollen, just 40 minutes outside the city centre by public transport. From the open-air metro, you can enjoy the view of the Oslo fjord on your way up, and your guide will share interesting information on one of the most popular recreational areas in Oslo.
Your first stop in Holmenkollen is the Frognerseteren wooden cottage, which dates back to 1891. Enjoy the panoramic views of Oslo and the fjord while sipping a hot drink and eating cake from Kafé Seterstua.
Walking downhill, we stop at the Holmenkollen wooden church before continuing on towards 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 60m-high ski jump tower. The platform here has a panoramic view of Oslo and surrounding areas.
After taking in the beautiful view, you will take the metro back down to your hotel where you’ll collect your luggage. Then you can relax, look through your photos and relive your Norwegian city adventure.
