Aker Brygge and Oslo's charming harbor front

See the beautiful harbor promenade, and finish in Aker Brygge, one of the Norwegian capital's most popular areas, and you can easily understand why! With lots of cafés, delicious food and numerous shopping opportunities, the area is a melting point for an urban atmosphere and a vibrant life.

But that's not all! This exciting tour presents you with impressions and new experiences. Not far from Aker Brygge lies one of Oslo's newer districts, Tjuvholmen, where architecture is the magic word. The district was designed by a number of architects and architectural firms, and offers, in addition to impressive buildings and the Astrup Fearnley Museum, as well as a smaller city beach.

Shopping and adventure in Oslo

When the trip is about shopping and adventure, it's hard not to be happy! This tour takes you past Karl Johans gate, Oslo's answer to Strøget in Copenhagen, and the largest and most popular shopping street in the Norwegian capital.

You also get closer to some of the city's most prominent attractions in both history and politics, and can experience sculptures brought to life by children's drawings. How about also seeing "Det Kongelige Castle", where the king and queen themselves live?

Visiting the world-famous Holmenkollen ski jump is a fantastic experience, regardless of the season.

This trip is both for those who would like to escape from the city and take a break in quiet and beautiful surroundings, and for those who can enjoy speeding across the field.

Enjoy the breathtaking view of the Norwegian capital from the observation tower, get a buzz in your stomach, or take a beautiful walk. If the purpose of the trip is to have a bite to eat, we can highly recommend booking a table at Scandic Holmenkollen, where you will get the best view.
