In our modern world glass is a part of our everyday life. This fascinating excursion will give you the opportunity to learn how glass is produced as well as how it is formed and finished today.

Departing the pier, it's a 90-minute drive to Jevnaker, travelling along the scenic Tyrifjord. In spite of its name, Tyrifjord is actually a freshwater lake. However, the lake has many side arms, thus it's called a fjord. As you follow the shoreline, you will be afforded lovely views of the lake and its many islands.

Arriving at Jevnaker, you will visit the Hadeland Glassworks, erected in 1762. Here, they not only produce articles for everyday use, but crystal and special collector's pieces as well. During your visit, you will be invited to observe the glassblowers as they demonstrate their skills in forming glowing, molten glass into beautiful shapes. A visit to the museum showcases a carefully selected choice of pieces that represent the very best designs over the years. It also shows the development of Norwegian glass making from 1762 until today and offers visitors a glance into Norwegian culture and glass history.

After a visit of approximately 90-minutes, it's time to re-board your coach and make your way back to the pier in Oslo where your tour ends.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 90-minutes of walking/standing. It is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have a companion to assist them. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. A windbreaker or light jacket and comfortable, flat walking shoes are suggested.
