Your introduction to Oslo begins with a drive through the central part of the city, where you’ll see the Parliament building, the National Theatre, the new Opera House, and the Royal Residence. As you pass by residential villas, you’ll see how many people live inside the city proper. Next, you’ll drive uphill to the new Holmenkollen Ski Arena for a spectacular view (and photo opportunity) of the city and the fjord.

Once you have taken in the view, you’ll proceed to the Vigeland Sculpture Park, where 30 years of Norway’s famous sculptor, Gustav Vigeland’s, work is on display. The figures, which number more than 150, are made of stone, iron, and bronze and are exhibited in a perfect park setting.

Finally, you’re off to the Bygdøy Peninsula, which was once owned by the king. It is now the site of five museums, including the fascinating Kon-Tiki Museum, which houses the original balsa raft used by Thor Heyerdahl in 1947 on a voyage from Peru to Polynesia. There is a good selection of documentary material on display and another raft that Heyerdahl used to cross the Atlantic in 1970.

You’ll also visit the nearby Viking Ship Museum where three ships are on display. This museum houses the contents of the burial mounds of several chieftains laid to rest around the Oslofjord. The ships were used as burial vessels and the best preserved is the Oseberg ship which was excavated in 1904. Its beautiful decorations show that it was constructed as a pleasure boat and the remnants found suggest it was used to bury a wealthy woman, perhaps Queen Åsa, the grandmother of King Harald Fairhair who gathered Norway into one kingdom in 872 C.E.

As we return along the coastline, you will be treated to a spectacular view of the harbor -- full of pleasure boats and surrounded by summer residences. You will likely catch a glimpse of "Oscarshall" Castle, built as the summer castle of King Oscar I.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
