Visit Oslo's top tourist attractions

Most popular things to see and do in Oslo

Most tours of Norway begin in the capital city and rightly so -- Oslo is home to many of Norway’s top cultural attractions as well as a surprising number of parks and recreational areas, not to mention a flourishing restaurant scene and bustling shopping streets.

To brush up on Norwegian culture and history -- especially Norway’s seafaring heritage, visiting Oslo’s Bygdøy peninsula is a must. This neighbourhood on the city’s west side contains several of Oslo’s top museums, including the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History, the Kon-Tiki Museum, the Norwegian Maritime Museum and the Fram Museum.

If it’s Norwegian art you’re interested in, don’t miss a stroll through Vigeland Sculpture Park, the world's largest sculpture park designed by a single artist and and one Norway's top tourist attractions. Works by Norway’s most famous artist, Edvard Munch, can also be seen in Oslo at the Munch Museum and the Norwegian National Gallery, where Munch’s famous painting “The Scream” is displayed.

For more great design, check out the grand architecture of the Royal Palace -- home to the Norwegian Royal Family -- and the award-winning, modern Oslo Opera House on the waterfront overlooking the Oslo Fjord.

For dining, shopping and overall people watching in the city centre, head to Karl Johans gate, Oslo’s high street, or Aker Brygge, the old waterfront that’s now a trendy neighbourhood with vibrant cafes and bars.

Getting to Oslo

Norway’s main international airport is Oslo-Gardermoen Airport, with direct flights from dozens of major cities in Europe and North America. Oslo Airport is connect to the city centre via the Flytoget airport express train and various airport busses.

Travel from Oslo to the Fjords

Want to see the Norwegian fjords and other famous attractions in western Norway? If you have around 7 days or more, you can extend your trip from Oslo to Norway’s west coast. A road trip between May and September is the way to go if you want to do some hiking and see the top attractions at your own pace.

From Oslo you can also also take a round-trip Norway in a Nutshell railway journey to Bergen, a route encompassing a steep and picturesque train ride over the mountains, a short cruise on the majestic Nærøyfjord and some free time in the colourful fjord village of Flåm.

Visit Sweden & Denmark from Oslo

With 10 - 14 days or more to travel, you can easily travel by train or ferry to neighbouring Sweden and other Scandinavian countries. Whether you travel on your own or in the company of a guided small group, Nordic Visitor makes it easy to combine visits to Oslo, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Helsinki all in one tailor-made itinerary.

Oslo is the starting point for most Nordic Visitor tours in Norway, and each itinerary can be customised to your liking with extra nights and other special touches. Get in touch with our friendly travel experts to start planning your dream trip to Oslo and other top attractions in Norway.

Christin, United States

Best of Northern Norway Classic - 71° North Cape, December 2023

Perfect

The tour was perfect and went smoothly the entire time. Communication from Nordic Visitor was timely and detailed. Would book with this tour company again.

Ian, United Kingdom

Norway Road Trip - Complete, July 2023

Memories we'll cherish forever

We found Norway to be a fabulous country and enjoyed every minute of our trip. The scenery was fantastic, the places visited were brilliant and the people were incredibly friendly and helpful. The information pack provided by Nordic Visitor was invaluable, the route chosen for us was superb and the places we stayed in were great. Likewise, the excursions offered, especially the Rib Safari were fantastic and gave us memories we'll cherish forever. Lastly, but by no means least, Irja, our travel consultant, couldn't have been more helpful and I would like to extend a huge thank you to her for all that she did.

James, Australia

Northern Lights by Train and Cruise, October 2023

A great experience

Very well-organised tour and a great experience. Nordic Visitor were very professional and their experience was evident in choosing the well-located and comfortable accommodation they selected for us. Best of all we got to see the northern lights!

Jonathan, United States

Norway Fjord Route by Car - Classic, June 2023

Incredibly happy!

Our travel agent, Małgorzata, was amazing to work with! She was able to add a few extra days in Oslo and arranged transportation via train to Bergen. Overall, I thought booking this vacation online and making payments was seamless. All the hotels we stayed in were nice, clean and safe! We loved the breakfast buffets, they were top notch! Also, collecting our rental car and navigating in a foreign country was seamless. We are incredibly happy that our tour package that we received at our first hotel included a physical map that had our tour highlighted.

Violetta, United States

Best of the Norwegian Fjords – Express, August 2023

Very satisfied customer

This was my second experience using Nordic Visitor. I am a very satisfied customer. A few years ago we did a self-drive tour of Iceland that was just amazing. This time we did a train/cruise combo tour of Norway. Once again, I can only say you will have a fantastic experience and you will appreciate the labuor of organising and planning being handled by experts who know what they are doing. The cruises through the fjords were beautiful as were the train trips. We loved the combination of train and boat travel as each offered distinct beauty from a different perspective. The country is truly lovely and we look forward to booking future travel with Nordic Visitor!

Dian, United States

Classic Norway, May 2023

Extraordinary!

Extraordinary! Everything went off as planned without a hitch. Our travel guide, Juliana, was exceptional, very responsive in answering our questions and providing updates.

Julie, United States

Wonders of the Norwegian Fjords, August 2023

Best vacation we ever had!

Our family of 5 (3 adult children) loved our Norway fjord tour. We saw the most beautiful scenery and loved each hotel. The food was delicious. Something for everyone. Our guide Al and driver Chris kept things running smoothly. We will have memories to last a lifetime. Thank you Nordic Visitor. Best vacation we ever had!

Alan, United Kingdom

Norway in a Nutshell® Express - Winter, March 2023

An excellent decision to book with Nordic Visitor

Following research, we decided to book with Nordic Visitor. This was an excellent decision. The booking process was easy and informative and Hanna was always available for guidance. The accommodation provided was top class and, importantly, convenient to the train stations from which we travelled. Our tour was amazing throughout with stunning scenery and sights.
