Indulge yourself in a day of regal bliss at Oslo’s many royal sites! Don your nicest frock and walk in the footsteps of Norwegian royalty at Akershus Fortress, Oslo Cathedral and the Royal Palace. You’re in for a treat!
The story about the tour
Hear ye, hear ye, welcome to the Kingdom of Norway! We hope you’re prepared for all things Royal Oslo because we have a magnificent experience in store for you. From Viking kings to modern-day royalty, put on your smartest frock or gown and be swept away by the grandeur of royalty found all across Oslo.
Taking our royal chariot (aka tram) east, we arrive back in time to the early days of Oslo. We’ll bow to Harald III, the last Viking King and founder of Oslo and walk through the ruins of the Old Town. Along the way, we’ll recount the city’s glory days and the fire that destroyed most of it (ever wonder why The Royal Palace and city centre are located on either side of Oslo?).
From ruins to Renaissance, we board the tram again and travel forward through time, greeting the Oslo Cathedral as we step off into a new era. The host of Royal weddings, the Oslo Cathedral is a place of possibility. It’s where a commoner became a Crown Princess in 2001. Floating down the street like dignitaries on a red carpet, we approach Akershus Fortress. We’ll roam the grounds, saluting the fortresses over 700-year history of sieges, festivities, royal residence, and place of power. Continuing our regal theme, we bid adieu to Akershus Fortress in search of modern-day royals.
Learn about Norwegian theatrical “royalty” at The National Theatre and discover the man behind the main pedestrian street in Oslo on our procession toward our final destination, the home of the King and Queen of Norway, The Royal Palace. Let us introduce the Queen’s artistry and the King’s sportiness on the world stage as we stroll through the grounds. Once back at the top of the hill, from Harald to Harald, Viking ruler to the contemporary monarch, we’ve now seen all things stately, majestic, and noble. This is a Royal Oslo Private Walking Tour, after all.
