Enjoy the capital of Norway, beautifully located at the end of the Oslofjord. Together with your guide you will explore the most important attractions of the city, such as the Vigeland Sculpture park, the town hall, and the Akershus fortress. Go on top of Holmenkollen, the ski jump hill from which you will have a breathtaking panorama view of the city and the fjord. In the afternoon we recommend to take a guided tour at the opera (extra charge), which from the outside looks like an iceberg floating in water.
