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.

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.

Scenic Fjords of Norway, April 2018

Excellent service

Second time we've used Nordic Visitor and they will continue to be my first choice for booking tours. Excellent service from travel consultants, value for money and the information provided make it an excellent company. 

Jeanette, United States

Norway in a Nutshell® - Classic, October 2017

I did not realize how easy the travel would be

I did not realize how easy the travel would be, it was a great blend of being on your own and the privacy, but having a back up and someone to organize the transportation was great. I felt like I saw the most I could in 5 days. 

Janice Persson, United States

Norway in a Nutshell® - Classic, October 2017

Impressed with how well everything was handled

I was impressed with how well everything was handled and the superb communication I received from my agent throughout. He responded to my emails immediately and answered every question I had.  I loved the personal connection I felt and the knowledge that Nordic Visitor would respond appropriately if I ran into a problem.

Swapna, United States

Norway in a Nutshell® and the Pulpit Rock, July 2017

Truly was a trip of a lifetime!

All accomodations were perfect. All hotels were close to all the local attractions, easy to get to from the airport, train station, ferry station. All the rooms were ready when I got there, they were clean and comfortable. The included breakfast were really delicious. I am a vegetarian, and had plenty of options. My whole experience with Nordic Visitor has been exceptional, and I have been telling everyone of my friends how easy everything was. Sofia was very patient with me, and worked with me, to tailor the itinerary to my satisfaction, was prompt in answering all my questions. Everything was done over email, which I loved, because I didnt have to rely on my memory. All in all, Nordic Visitor rocks! This was truly a trip of a lifetime!

I'm so glad I booked the trip with Nordic Visitor

I'm so glad I booked the trip with Nordic Visitor. Norway is spectacular in itself, but have such a knowledgeable, friendly and helpful guide made the trip so much easier and enjoyable.

Robert, Albania

I would recommend your company to anyone going to Scandinavia

Your company provides outstanding tours, guides, and Arrangements. If and when we return to Scandinavia, we would only use your company. We never had to worry about anything and knew our experience would be spectacular. I would recommend your company to anyone going to Scandinavia. In fact we're looking forward to more tours
