We visit the best sights where also children can have fun


On this tour we stop at museums that gives children som extra fun: three of the best sights in Oslo, with additional time to explore

We start with a city sightseeing by car, continuing to the beautiful peninsula Bygdøy and the famous FRAM museum. FRAM is the boat that has been closest to both the north and the south pole, and the museum is rated as the best one in Oslo! Here you can experience how to be an artic explorer, and how it feels to be frozen into the ice. . .

The next stop is the Norwegian Heritage Museum, where we have a look at folk dancing and taste "lefse" - a typical sweet bread from the old times. You'll aslo see one of our few Stave churches left from the Viking age; all on the UNESCO list

A drive through a nice residential area takes us up to the Holmenkollen skijump, with a wonderful view of the city. Here we visit the ski museum - the oldest in the world - and you can try the zip-line from the top, to get an impression on how it is to jump. . .

On this tour it's fun for all ages ;-)

Itinerary

Some more details of the tour:

On our way through the city - and our almost 1000 years of history - we'll pass a lot of famous buildings and places, like:
- the Karl Johan street (our main street)
- the Royal Palace
- the National Theatre
- the oldest part of the University of Oslo
- the City Hall (where the Nobel Peace Prize is handed out every year)
- the Akershus Fortress
- the new Opera House (built like an iceberg coming up from the sea)

When we reach Bygdøy our first stop is FRAM - the strongest wooden boat in the world. The building is buildt around this huge ship and has the shape of a triangle, situated at the shore of the Oslo fiord, with at nice view of the city and a perfect place to enjoy a Norwegian icre cream :) I'll tell you about our polar history and the expeditions of Fritjof Nansen and Roald Amundsen; two very famous explorerer. These are the true stories of the attempt to reach the north pole in 1893, and the race between Amundsen and Scott towards the south pole 18 years later
