The tour begins by driving through this impressive capital city past the City Hall, National Theater, and the Royal Palace to Bygdoy Peninsula. The Viking Ships Museum here is reminiscent of a cathedral, which seems a fitting homage as there are three inspirational Viking long ships inside, dating from 800-900 AD. You will be amazed at the incredible artisanship.

Rejoin the coach to travel through suburbs and farmland to the 230-year-old Hadeland Glassworks. During your visit, you will learn about the glasswork's history and its development through more than two centuries. You will watch glass blowers at work, creating beautiful pieces of art from sand and molten glass. Subsequently, lunch will be served in the restaurant.

Later, you can walk over to the Honey House, where you will see bees at work in the hives. Before you leave the grounds of Hadeland, be sure to visit the gift shops.

After approximately a one-hour drive through the Norwegian landscape, you will reach the Holmenkollen viewpoint. The view over Oslo, the fjord and surroundings is breathtaking. You can also admire the ski jump built for the 2011 Ski World Championship. After your visit at Holmenkollen, you will return to your ship.
