Itinerary

Day 1 Oslo Arrival

On arrival in Oslo, make your own way to your hotel. Time to enjoy the city sights including the many fabulous museums. Stroll along the old Bryygen wharf area, now a bustling hub of outdoor cafés, bars and restaurants. Visit the fantastic architectural masterpiece that is the stunning new Opera House and perhaps take a guided tour of the Royal Palace. Your arrangements include a 72 hour Oslo Pass which you can use on public transport and for visiting many attractions. 3 nights in Oslo at Comfort Grand Central Hotel or similar.

Day 2 Oslo: City Sightseeing

Today explore all the "must see" attractions in Oslo, including the small city centre, photo stop at Hollmenkollen ski jump, guided tour through Vigeland Sculpture Park; entrance to the Fram Museum with the polar exploration ship Fram, and the Viking Museum (note: if the Viking Museum is closed then instead entrance to Kon-Tiki Museum with Thor Heyerdahl's rafts and the story of his amazing voyages). Remainder of the day is at leisure.

Day 3 Oslo: Fjord Cruise

Oslo sits on a large and beautiful fjord and this cruise takes you along narrow sounds, idyllic bays and through a maze of islands, with small, colourful summer houses. You'll sail past numerous islands including Hovedøya, and the Dyna Lighthouse, through tiny inlets and into sheltered bays, so that you can see the city from different angles. The boat passes the stunning Opera House, then the peninsula of Bygdøy, with many interesting museums including the Maritime Museum, where the veteran sailing ships lie moored outside. Remainder of the day at leisure.
