Description

Founded in the mid-11th century by a Viking king, Oslo became the capital of Norway around 1300. For a long time, it was considered more of a country town but today has become a sophisticated metropolis. It is one of Europe's most heavily forested cities and Oslovians love nature in summer and winter.

A city full of unique displays of cultural expression, our goal is to introduce you to the most notable attractions that make Oslo, Oslo. Our first stop will be to the Vigeland Sculpture Park, the largest sculpture park made by a single artist, Gustav Vigeland. It is no wonder the park took nearly 30 years to create! There are more than 150 figures in all, constructed using a variety of materials including stone, iron, and bronze. The park is surrounded by lush greenery and city scape - providing the perfect back drop for this feat!

Nearby we will visit the Viking Ships Museum - you are in Norway after all. You will see three stunning burial vessels form the Viking era which were excavated on the shores of the Oslofjord and are now displayed here. The items that were buried with various chieftains in their burial moulds around the area have been gathered here as well. These are well-preserved and serve as an excellent example of the Viking period's daring initiative and ship-building craftsmanship.

Before returning to the cruise pier we will bring you to the city center where you will see City Hall - the location of the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony. You will also see the Karl Johans Gate, the Norwegian Royal Palace, as well as the Parliament Building.

Meeting instructions:
Specific pick up or taxi instructions will appear on your voucher after you purchase your trip.



Special instructions:

- We suggest bringing a bottle of water from your cruise ship as Oslo is expensive.

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),
