Day 1 - Arrive in Oslo and transfer to your centrally located hotel
Arrive in Oslo, the beautiful Norwegian capital by the Oslofjord. Make your own way to your centrally located hotel in the heart of Oslo, an easy direct express train ride away from the airport. Your Meet and Greet service will be waiting at the hotel and provide you with information and suggestions for activities and dining. The Norwegian capital has a great deal to offer for the observant traveller. We can recommend a walk around the centre of town to view the Parliament, the Castle, and the Harbour area.
Day 2 - Discover Oslo Fjord with Island Hopping
After breakfast, head out to explore three distinct fjord islands: Bleikøya, a local's paradise with stunning city views; Lindøya, a picturesque village with colourful wooden cabins; and Hovedøya, home to historic ruins and cultural insights. Don't forget your swimsuit to take a refreshing dip in the Oslo fjord
Depending on the weather, is it time to hit the beach or a museum? The Viking and Kontiki museums are popular to visit for families or if you have teenagers, perhaps they would enjoy the thrill of ice climbing at the new SNO indoor ski centre.
This evening, we suggest a fjord sunset sailing trip or a 'engang grill' picnic in Frogner park.
Optional Add Ons
Day 3 - Head out into the green oasis of Oslo and later experience a sauna cruise
This morning be ready to explore the waterfalls, rapids and rich birdlife along the beautiful Lysaker river. Norway is a land of waterfalls and some of them (small but powerfull) are located right here in Oslo.
In the afternoone experience a sauna that transforms into a boat, and which takes you out on the fjord at a leisurely pace. Enjoy the beautiful view while the sauna floats away and the stove crackles and steams. When a sauna becomes a boat, magic happens.
Day 4 - Departure day
After breakfast, continue your journey onwards or home. Ask us for ideas if you want to extend your tour.
