Join our Ultimate Oslo Tour! Discover the heart of Oslo on a city walk with a licensed guide, who will tell you all about Oslo's culture and history. Then we will take you on a hike through the Norwegian forest to the Rose Castle. During these 24 hours you will see the two sides of our city with local guides. The 24-hour transport ticket is included in price.

Day 1. Sightseeing Oslo at its best!

Discover Oslo with your own licensed guide! We will pick you up at the hotel in the city center at 14.00 and show you the highlights of Oslo. Today you will learn about the history of the city, you will see the Royal Palace, and see both the historical and astonishing modern architecture of Oslo. You will get under the skin and discover the heartbeat  of Oslo's city center. This tour will also include visiting the Vigeland Sculpture park, the famous Viking ship museum and a wonderful and interesting walk in the pedestrian part of Oslo where your guide will show you the meeting point for your morning adventure the next day.

Day 2. Wander through Norwegian Forest to the Rose Castle

The tour starts from the Jernbanetorget, train station in the city center at 9:00. Together we will take a train to Lillevann, and here our adventure begins! This train ride provides the best panoramic views of the Oslo fjord.

From Lillevann, we will wander through the lush forest, enjoying the smell of pine trees and fresh air. In the summer, the forest is all green and wild, with ferns and blueberry bushes.

Next stop of our tour is Voksenkollen. The hiking trail will lead us to the small, but picturesque lake called Øvresetertjern. Here, on the lake shore, we will take a rest and have a hearty break, enjoying snacks and drinks.

After the break, we will hike to the Rose Castle, an art installation and an educational project, which aims to tell the story of the occupation of Norway and of the principles of humanism. The tickets are included in price and we will spend about 30 minutes in the Rose Castle learning about the history.
Situated north to the city, this area is located 400 m above the sea level, so we will have some spectacular views of the Oslo fjord. The train station Frognerseteren is located nearby. We will then take a train back to the Jernbanetorget, where we started our tour earlier, at 13:00.
