Explore the capital of Norway by bus and boat, two modes of transportation that present different perspectives of this enchanting city at the head of Oslofjord.

After departing from the pier, you will drive through the city center to the famed Oslo Opera House, a contemporary marble-and-glass building that has won countless design awards. Pausing long enough for photos of this stunning work of art, you will then continue through the surrounding Bjøvika neighborhood to the breathtaking Holmenkollen Ski Jump. A towering monument of steel and concrete, it opened in 2010 for competitive ski jumping. Here, you will linger for panoramic photos of Oslo, the fjord and the surrounding islands.

Continuing west to the Bygdoy Peninsula, you will change modes of transportation by boarding a beautiful sailing vessel. The historical ship offers open-deck seating, which affords you expansive views of surrounding Oslofjord. As you motor along the waterway, you will see the ruins of a monastery that English monks constructed in the 12thcentury on the island of Hovedoya, and then the 1875-built Dyna lighthouse on a reef in the fjord.

Other coastal highlights include several municipal beaches, the characteristic twin towers of City Hall, and medieval Akershus Castle. For centuries, the rulers of Norway lived here, protected by the fortress’ thick earth-and-stone walls. After cruising Oslofjord, you will arrive back to the pier where you can walk back to the ship or head into town.

Please note: This tour includes limited walking, mainly at the guests’ discretion during the stops. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and touring boat, and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Layered clothing; sun cap; sun glasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Tour sequence may vary.
