Details

Drive through the central areas of Oslo and experience the beauty that surrounds it. Pass City Hall, the National Theatre, Royal Palace and suburban villa areas to Bygdøy peninsula. Once the king’s private property, Bygdøy now houses several museums and a royal castle. Your first stop is the Viking Ship Museum, where well-preserved ships and tools are displayed and show the Vikings’ initiatives and shipbuilding craftsmanship. Next, you will visit the Kon Tiki Museum, which holds the original raft used by Thor Heyerdahl on his voyage from Peru to Polynesia. Afterward, pay a visit to the Fram Museum, which portrays the story of Norwegian polar exploration. Guests will be able to indulge in history and see photographs, models and displays of historical artifacts. The museum also has an Aurora borealis light show on the roof and a Dark Walk simulator — three immersive rooms that allows you to experience conditions as they were on the expeditions to the poles. Visit the main exhibit in the museum, the polar ship Fram, specially designed to withstand the pressure of pack ice. The ship has sailed the furthest north and south on expeditions to the poles, and its interior is still intact for viewing. On the way back, you will ride along the harbor to get a glimpse of Oscarshall castle, where Swedish/Norwegian King Oscar I once lived in.
