Experience a typical small-town village of Oslo Fjord
Drøbak is a picturesque town with traditional small wooden buildings. Drøbak situated on the Oslo fjord. 40 minutes driving from Oslo.
We experience a saltwater aquarium and the worlds only Lutefisk museum - ( Lutefisk is a Norwegian specialty- salted, dried cod soaked in the chemical lye to achieve a jellyfish appearance).
If you did not know that Santa's ancestors came from Drøbak you will not doubt this after your visit. All year round you can meet Santa's cousin and see all the letters he receives. Drøbak has a whole year Christmas house/shop which is unique in Norway.
In Drøbak you can also see the fortress of Oscarshall from where German invading ships were shot at in 1940. This delayed the occupation of Norway 30 hours making it possible for the royal family and the government to escape from Oslo.
