Oslo & Fram Museum - Private Walking Tour

OSLO. 4hrs. Did you know Oslo is the 3rd most northern capital in world? Is this where the fascination with the polar regions comes from? Join us on our Oslo & Fram Museum Private Walking Tour to discover Oslo and it’s polar history.

The story about the tour

As one of the northernmost countries in the world, the Arctic Circle runs through northern Norway where the skies are filled with the midnight sun in the summer and northern lights in the winter. While Oslo may not be located within the Arctic Circle, the Norwegian capital is tied to the country’s polar history as it’s the home of two original polar ships. On our Oslo & Fram Museum Private Walking Tour, we’ll explore the main attractions of the city centre then hop aboard a public ferry to take us to the peninsula of Bygdøy, home of the Fram Museum.

We’ll start our adventure with a beautiful view of Aker Brygge and the Oslo Fjord. Journeying further inland, we’ll discover the main sites of the Norwegian capital, including the Royal Palace, the University of Oslo and Karl Johans gate with the neighbouring Norwegian Parliament. Venturing back toward the water, we’ll hear the story of Old Oslo and the fortress on the hilltop, Akershus Fortress. From the nearby harbour, we’ll hop aboard a scenic public ferry to Bygdøy, arriving at the entrance of the Fram Museum.

To understand polar history and its importance then and now, let’s start by removing the image of the world, as you know it today. Allow yourself to travel back to centuries ago when mankind had no satellites, no Google Maps, no aeroplanes, and no crystal-clear knowledge of how the world looked. Enter three Norwegian polar explorers: Fritjof Nansen, Otto Sverdrup and Roald Amundsen. This image of the world was their reality, and still, they decided to take on the Earth’s poles. The bravery of these Norwegian explorers was tested in some of the most extreme conditions, and at the Fram Museum, we’ll hear their stories and the stories of their expeditions.

After three hours and the return ferry to where we started our expedition, you’re now part of the Explorer’s Club, having explored the city of Oslo and Norway’s polar pride, the Fram Museum.

Please note: The ferry to/from Bygdøy operates Mar-Oct. When not operating, the journey will be substituted by bus.

Tour includes: Private Guide, Bygdøy Ferry Tickets (Return), Fram Museum Entrance Fee
