Ekeberg, Vigeland Park, Holmenkollen and Vikingships


You will enjoy the tour through Oslo, while listening to the history, and learn why Oslo now is the fastest growing Capital in Europe. Being surrounded by a couple of hills, we first enter the Ekeberg hill, where you have a stunning view oft he new developments on the east and south side of the city.
Continuing the tour going west, we will visit the fabulous Vigeland sculpture garden, where the artist Gustav Vigeland is telling the story of life in his own way with his almost 200 sculptures.
Our driver will be waiting for us at the rear end of the park and will now take us to the ski area of Holmenkollen where you may want to try the Ski Simulator!

A visit to the Viking Ship museum is a must and you will have the opportunity to see the excavated longboats once used as burial ships for famous vikings.
