Oslo All Inclusive
This sightseeing tour of Norway will take you to all of the highlights you could hope for in Oslo. Tour striking locations like Vigeland Sculpture Park, take pictures at the Holmenkollen Ski Jump, and visit the impressive Viking Ship Museum.
Begin with a drive through the city center of Oslo on a coach as the local guide provides interesting information about the Norwegian capital and its major attractions. Take a guided walk through the Vigeland Sculpture Park on this tour, one of Norway's most visited attractions with more than 1 million visitors every year. This unique park is the life work of sculptor Gustav Vigeland (1869-1943), and features more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite, and cast iron.
Then, visit Holmenkollen Ski Jump, an imposing monument of steel and concrete. One of the first designer ski jumps ever built, it is recognized as the world's most modern ski jump. Enjoy a spectacular view of Oslo and the Oslo fjord from the platform at the top of the ski jump tower.
Enjoy entry to the impressive Viking Ship Museum, home of the famous Oseberg Ship. The ship, which dates to approximately 800 AD, is a fine example of Viking shipbuilding, and is remarkably well preserved. The museum also contains various interesting artifacts from the Viking age, including everyday objects, wood carvings, two other notable Viking ships, and several of the burial goods discovered on the Oseberg Ship.
The next stop on the tour is up to you. Gain admission to your choice of either the Fram Museum OR the Kon-Tiki Museum. The Fram Museum tells the story of Norwegian polar exploration, and is centered around the gem of its collection: the Fram. The Fram is a ship that was used in expeditions of the Arctic and Antarctic regions by Norwegian explorers. The Kon-Tiki Museum contains artifacts from the The Kon-Tiki expedition, a 1947 journey by raft across the Pacific Ocean from South America to the Polynesian islands, led by Norwegian explorer and writer Thor Heyerdahl.
Book this guided tour to get a rare look into Norwegian traditions and to learn about Oslo's history and modern attractions!
Please Note: Your ticket includes the choice of only ONE of the following museums: The Fram Museum or the Kon-Tiki Museum.

Enjoyed seeing the ski jump area with people zip lining. It was a quite warm day so the walk in the park was very tiring. I always expect water to be provided and it was not.

This tour lasted almost 5 hours, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We visited the ski jump, the Vigeland Sculpture Museum, the Fram or Kon-tiki Museum (pick one), and the Viking Ship Museum. You pick the tour up right next to city hall on the left side (when you look at the city hall from the harbor). This was a 15 minute walk from where my cruise ship was docked. I would arrive by 10am because the bus filled up fast! The tour was great for a first time visitor. You also have narration about Oslo as you go from place to place.

This tour covered the Olympic Ski Jump, the Vigeland Sculpture Park, the Fram Museum, and the Viking Ships Museum. We covered a lot of area in just five hours, and had to forego the final part of the tour--a 2-hour boat ride. This because our ship had evidently changed the departure time and we would have missed our ship. We were disappointed, but the bus did drop us off at the dock near our ship before continuing the tour. Thankfully, we were reimbursed for a portion of this tour. We enjoyed this tour and think it is a good value.

We were a little disappoint that the pickup wasn't at the ship and that we had to walk a ways to City Hall to catch the bus. In the rain that would not have been fun. However, the excursion was well worth the wall and we did receive value for our dollars spend. The guild did an exceptional job at each of the stops and in between. The ear piece and received made it so much better to hear what was to be seen without having to be crunched in the middle of the crowd. We enjoyed the Oslo All Inclusive very much, and still have time for our own sight seeing. I would absolutely book future excursions through the Shore Excursions Group.
