You too can be a Norwegian explorer.

In addition to being the country's capital, Oslo is the biggest city in Norway. Not only dazzling and varied, but simply a lot of ground (and fjord) to cover. No wonder those Vikings were so into exploring. Fortunately, we’ve made it easier for you with the Oslo City Sightseeing Tour. It begins with an open-air double-decker bus that lets you hop on and off at will for 24-hours. You can even start with a 90-minute tour and pre-recorded commentary before deciding your itinerary for the rest of the day. And that bus really makes the rounds. From the Oslo Opera House to the neo-Roman architecture of the Parliament. From the Vigeland Sculpture Park with more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and cast iron to the Viking Ship Museum- a true stunner. From the Norwegian Open Air Folk Museum to the Nobel Peace Center. In fact, it makes 17 stops throughout Oslo while giving you the time to soak it all in. The Oslo City Sightseeing Tour.
