Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Board your motorcoach for a scenic drive through beautiful Oslo en route to Holmenkollen. Perched high above Oslo, Holmenkollen is the cradle of ski jumping and the site of the 1952 Olympic ski-jumping competition. Recently chosen to host the 2011 Ski Jump Championship competition, a photo opportunity in the area is a wonderful way to capture a piece of sport's history.

Continue your drive through Oslo, passed such national landmarks as the National Theater and the magnificent Royal Palace, official residence of the present Norwegian Monarch. Your tour will take you outside of the city through charming suburban areas where beautiful homes are set within manicured gardens.

A guided walk through the extraordinary Vigeland Sculpture Park, the largest sculpture park in the world created by one single artist, is invigorating and inspiring. The park covers eighty acres and was designed by renowned Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland who created the around 200 iron and bronze statues. The sculptures artistically depict a complete human lifecycle from birth to death and are displayed in five different areas throughout the park. After your guided walk, you may explore the park independently. The gardens are vast and Vigeland also designed the impressive lawns and straight avenues flanked by maple trees perfect for strolling.

The Munch Museum is an art museum dedicated to the life and works of the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch, who bequeathed a large portion of his work to the city of Oslo before his death in 1940. The museum contains books, paintings, drawings, sculptures and letters and has ever changing exhibitions for you to enjoy.

At the completion of the tour, a lovely scenic drive through Oslo brings you back to the ship.
