      About this Oslo Tour

      Overwhelmed by the incredible breadth of options for what to do with a day in Oslo? On this GoBe tour, you can see the city in comfort. Our experts have planned your itinerary and are standing by to whisk you through Oslo's finest attractions. Best of all, you'll be able to explore your favorite sites in depth after touring the city with us.

      Your journey will span centuries of the city's rich history. Soak in views of the Akershus Fortress, an imposing castle built in the late 1200s to protect Oslo from attack. Fast forward almost 600 years to the Royal Palace, built in the 1800s and still occupied by the Norwegian Royal Family. This is just the tip of the city's historical iceberg. 

      Like art? You're certainly in luck! Visit the Oslo City Hall, a strikingly modern 20th-century building that houses not only the city government, but also an extensive art gallery. The Nobel Peace Prize ceremony is held there each year. Back in the open air, take a break from your tour with a walk through Frogner Park's Vigeland installation, over 200 sculptures all created by Norwegian artist Gustav Vigeland. 

      Finally, draw all your experiences together at the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History. Buildings spanning Norway's long history have been clustered there for your benefit. Crown your day with a visit to the 13th-century Gol Stave Church before returning to the 21st century and your ship after free time in Oslo.

      Worse than its bite?

      The fortress of Akershus broods over Oslo, protecting but also threatening its inhabitants. Akershus, in addition to being a fortress, has also served over the centuries as a notorious prison. Many unhappy men and women have passed through its gates. Some never left and may remain as ghosts. While most of the spirits there are probably harmless, beware the creature called Malcanisen, the "evil dog." Legend says that a dog was buried alive in the hopes that it would become a ghost, a sort of paranormal insurance to protect against intruders. The plan worked and the dog is still doing his job…anyone who encounters him is said to be dead within three months.
