Spend a half day in Oslo on a tour that includes the Vigeland Sculpture Park, the Holmenkollen Ski Jump and your choice of either the Fram Museum or the Kon-Tiki Museum. Begin with a drive through the city center of Oslo on a coach with a local guide providing interesting information about the Norwegian capital and its major attractions.
This expansive guided walk through Oslo also includes a Vigeland Sculpture Park tour. The park is 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) with more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and cast iron.
Then, visit Holmenkollen Ski Jump, an imposing monument of steel and concrete. An imposing monument of steel and concrete, it is recognized as the world's most modern ski jump and one of the first designer ski jumps ever built. Enjoy a spectacular view of Oslo and the fjord from the platform at the top of the ski jump tower.
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 sightseeing tour to see the most interesting sights in Oslo.
Please Note: Your ticket includes the choice of only ONE of the following museums: The Fram Museum or the Kon-Tiki Museum. From mid March to October (exact dates may vary), this tour returns from the museums on Bydgoy Island by ferry. You will receive a return ferry ticket, which may be used on any return departure on the ferry, allowing you to spend more time at the museums. Guests choosing to stay longer at Bydgoy Island are responsible for planning their return to the ship accordingly.
We had a one day cruise stop in Oslo. We looked at private tours, but this option in Oslo is VERY EXPENSIVE. Our tour started with a drive through the city which was a good way to get a feel for the city. We then went to the ski jump which was worth seeing. We also walked through Vigeland Park which is a can't miss in Oslo.Our guide spent too much time talking in the garden. We would have preferred him doing some of the general information while we were riding on the bus and then letting us spend more time on our own. At the end, we were taken to Tiki and Fram museums where we could stay as long as we wanted and given tickets to take the ferry back to the city. We took the Fram option which was very interesting and informative. The ferry was an added plus as we got a view of Oslo from the water and were dropped off close to our ship. I think this was a better option than the ship excursions since none of the offered excursions went to the ski jump, park, and Fram.

The tour bus was a short walk from the port. Guide spoke excellent English & was great!! Tour was longer, better & less expensive than the one we would have purchased on the ship. We were very pleased.

Very satisfied with our guide and the selected sites, even if heavy rain and a power failure spoiled one, the Ski Jump. Out of anyone's control.

This was the first Shore Excursions group tour that I had participated in and was very worried about finding the bus for it. But it worked out well and the departure worked well. So then I was relaxed about the rest of them that I had booked. The excursion gave us a good look at Oslo, ski jump probably the most amazing.
