Oslo From Coastline to City - Private Walking Tour

This adventure walks us through Oslo city centre and aboard a sightseeing boat for a cruise of the Oslo fjord. Enjoy the stunning view of the Norwegian capital and its shore on our Oslo from Coastline to City Private Walking Tour.

The story about the tour

One of the best things about Oslo is that it sits along the water, making it very easy to provide an experience known as “from coastline to city”. From Viking settlement to new constructions, this once coastal town has flourished into a beautiful Scandinavian city (and it continues getting better!). Come see how Oslo has grown, always within close reach of the water (and if not water, then forest) on this private walking tour that culminates with a sightseeing boat tour. 

Starting out from the Nobel Peace Center, just a stone’s throw from the cruise ports, we’ll journey up into the impressive Akershus Fortress, which has been guarding Oslo and her coast for centuries. Out of the fortress and walking down the inner-city streets, it’s not long before you reach water again. In the distance, a building rises out of the water in the fashion of an iceberg (or at least it looks that way!). It’s the Oslo Opera House, and after a short walk around the harbour, we’re standing on top of its roof! Back down to reality (or ground level), it’s time to stroll along the main shopping street, Karl Johans gate, say hello to Oslo’s tiger and tip our hats toward the Royal Palace and Norwegian Parliament. Rounding the corner, we’ll greet the Oslo City Hall, home to the Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony, before hopping aboard a boat for a sightseeing tour of Oslo’s fjord. 

Having seen the city centre of Oslo up close, we’ll take to the water for some stunning views of sites we have and have not seen. There’s the Bygdøy peninsula which holds many of the city’s museums. You’ll not be able to miss the Fram Museum, home to the first Norwegian polar expedition ship. Outside the city, there are islands known to be favourite spots for picnics and swimming amongst the locals. To round it off, we’ll also see the sleek modern architecture of the city centre from afar. 

When you’ve heard the city’s many tales and seen the sites from the water, we arrive back from our boat ride to where we began. Your adventure Oslo from Coastline to City Private Walking Tour is complete.

    Happy Nobel Day! 💡 As Nobel Week was cancelled in 2020, Nobel lectures, prizes and banquets were replaced with Nobel Week Lights - light installations inspired by Nobel Prize-awarded findings and laureates. As the festivities are now back, we sure hope that we are so lucky that the artwork brightening up the city during the darkest month of the year; is a December tradition that has come to stay. 💫

    🇸🇪 
    Nobeldagen är här! 💡 Nobelveckan blev inställd 2020, och istället för Nobelföreläsningar, prisutdelning och bankett genomfördes Nobel Week Lights som är ljusinstallationer inspirerade av Nobelpris på olika platser i Stockholm. Det blev så uppskattat att det genomförs i år igen trots att Nobelveckan är återinförd. Har vi tur så är det en decembertradition som kommit för att stanna. 💫

    It’s a contested issue amongst numerous Baltic connected countries as to who invented the Ice-skate. Was it the Finns or the Dutch? All of this is irrelevant because the best city to ice-skate in is Stockholm. If you want to show off your Quadruple Axel in front of the masses, the ice-rink in Kungsträdgården is the perfect location. ✨⛸️✨

    Don't let its controversy cloud your curiosity as Christianshavns characteristic slanting roofs and canals, as well as the tremendous Church of Our Saviour, are well worth seeing. Not to forget the Færgecafé or Café Parterre who are both worth visiting.

    A few hundred years ago, if you asked a Norwegian how old they were they might reply “I have seen forty winters!” Every year of life was a success! Now, living conditions are of course much improved, but there is no such thing as a mild winter here. Bring thermal underwear, wool and grow a beard... if you can. ❄️☃️☃️

    Of course, if you love the snow and want to ski, then you're in the perfect place, and you get to see the beauty of Oslo in a truly Nordic light! The canvas of white snow - unpredictable but usually arriving in November/December - can provide a canvas of light across the city that makes up for the few hours of sunlight the people of Oslo get to enjoy. While still beautiful, it's best to stay inside! ✨✨

    The temperature might not be super-cold in Winter in Copenhagen, but strong winds make it quite chilly. 🌬 The city is still quite magical. 🌟 The Christmas markets open already in the middle of November so that you can warm up with a hot Gløgg! Expect 10 to 13 rainy days per month.

    The first snow is here with us in Stockholm! 😍❄

    Södermalm (the South Island) is the largest of all the islands that make up Stockholm. For the majority of Stockholm's existence, it has been the home of the poor and the working class. Not anymore! Today, the hipsters have well and truly transformed Södermalm into a trendy place to live, work and play. 🐱‍👓

    What's a better winter activity than museum hopping? Not much, if you ask us. Let us introduce you to Bygdøy (also known as museum heaven), the peninsula in Oslo where you find a big collection of museums close to each other. Perfect! ❄️

    Our favourite time of the year is here! 🎅🏻🎄 If you are in Stockholm for this festive season, make sure you make it a tasty one 😋 and try:

    🌟 Freshly baked saffron buns, also called “lussekatter”, preferably filled with almond paste.

    🌟 Gingerbread cookies and having them with blue cheese, it’s an odd yet delicious combo, we promise!

    🌟 Freshly made candy cane, if you pop into @gamlastanspolka and find them baking the candy canes, they often let you try the mix. Soft candy cane should be a thing!
