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 Viking Ship Museum, 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.

Christian, Canada

Complete Norway, February 2020

We had a great experience

Everything was fine, accomodations were perfect, comfortable and very good breakfast. Our experience with Nordic Visitor was very helpful and the followups were very efficient.

Tracy, United States

Highlights of Norway, May 2019

Fantastic tour! My second guided tour with Nordic Visitor, and I will look to do other tours

I enjoyed the small group size and getting to know my tour mates. I most enjoyed the Fjord part of the tour.  Flam was amazing and the accomodations were fantastic! This was my second guided tour with Nordic Visitor, and I will look to do other tours with Nordic Visitor. I have recommended to friends and 2 have used for self-drive tours in Iceland. I also wrote a positive trip advisor review on my Iceland tour and it was read by 1,500 people! I will give another positive write-up on this trip. I love to look at your website (which is one of the best travel websites I've seen) and dream about where I may want to go next.

Brenda, South Africa

Norway in a Nutshell® Classic - Winter, January 2020

Wonderful experience!

It's intimidating visiting a foreign country where you don't speak the language. Our fears were put to rest the moment we started our tour, the whole experience was just wonderful. Everything was wonderful, our tour was carefully planned and made the maximum use of our time.

Larry, Canada

Highlights of Norway, July 2019

I enjoyed the whole tour!

The scenery was beautiful and the accommodations and food were excellent. Our tour leader and driver were great to travel with and I enjoyed the whole tour.

Debbie, United States

Norway in a Nutshell® & Northern Lights, March 2020

Excellent tour!

An excellent tour. Excellent locations, nice quality. Self guided, directions were very clear and concise. We especially enjoyed the day spent at Camp Tamok, where we partook in reindeer and dog sledding.

Lesley, Australia

Norway in a Nutshell® Classic - Winter, October 2019

Good travel experience!

Flam railway trip fantastic and the ferry cruise in the magnificent fjord. Overall, very good travel experience for this usually very independent traveller.

Michelle, Australia

Norway in a Nutshell® Classic - Winter, October 2019

Seamless organisation, wonderful time!

All hotels where great a very well located. All transferred where seamless and directions very easy to follow. As a solo traveller I was astounded by how well everything had been organised.
