Exciting venue all year round. Easily combined with all other destinations in Norway.
Norway’s Capital City since approx. 1300, pop. 600.000. Royal residence and seat of Parliament and Government.
The city’s beautiful location on the Oslo Fjord makes it ideal for cruises, whether for a full day including lunch, pre-dinner drinks or a dinner cruise, on one of the city’s sizeable fleet of charter boats, like Schooners, Vintage steamers and many more. For an adrenaline kick you can choose RIBs for fjord trips and transfers, and flightseeing by seaplane or helicopter is a yet another way to enjoy the fjord and its many islands.
Almost floating in the fjord, lies Norways magnificent new Opera House (top). How about a private tour behind the scenes, with an aperitif? Or how about your very own Nobel Peace Prize Dinner? Absolutely everything is exactly the same as the real thing served annually on 10 Dec. at the banquet in honour of the year’s Laureate.
Winter activities include curling, ice-skating, tobogganing the Cork Screw of 1952 Winter Olympics fame, and horse and sleigh rides. Or have a full day of team activities at a Wilderness Camp in the city’s surrounding forests – also possible the rest of year, with non-snow activities. Frequently chosen is a double-venue event, pairing Oslo with one of the other venues on our list.
So much to see and discover in Oslo, for instance the 9th C. Viking Ships (above), explorer Heyerdal’s famous raft «Ra», Arctic hero Amundsen’s ship «Gjøa», sculpturer Vigeland’s fascinating Sculpture Park, the authentic, medieval Stave Church at the Open Air Museum, the Holmenkollen Ski Jump, or Edvard Munch’s paintings. Or possibly enjoy a Jazz Brunch at the Grand Café, where Henrik Ibsen was a regular and had a reserved table. His Top Hat still marks the spot.
Wide selection of historical and other private venues for drinks, banquets and Theme Parties.
International airport (OSL) 50 mins. by luxury coach from the city centre.
