Private Oslo – City Views, Nature and Oscarsborg Fortress

Full day / 7 hours EUR 590,-, (Max. 3 persons)

Welcome to a different sightseeing around Oslo

We’ll take you on a journey to experience some of the beautiful sights and nature around Oslo. This private tour is limited to 3 persons, to ensure a personalized and unique experience. First stop is a small town right outside of Oslo, Drøbak. Here we will go on a short ferry trip to the fortress of Oscarsborg, which played an important role in the start of WWII. We will enjoy the beautiful scenery on this small island while having a light lunch outside, if the weather permitting. Back on the mainland we’ll continue through small and narrow streets to Drøbak center, towards the Norwegian home of Santa Claus. Here you can mail letters home with an official stamp of “Julenissen” (Santa Claus). We will then travel back to Oslo along the Oslofjord and drive up the hills towards Ekeberg to get a spectacular view of Oslo. Here we’ll visit the Ekeberg Sculpture Park and enjoy some of the art pieces from Norwegian and international artists. Last stop of the day is the roof of Oslo Opera House with a beautiful view of the city and the fjord.

Oscarsborg is a coastal fortress in the Oslofjord, close to the small town of Drøbak. The fortress is best known for sinking the German heavy cruiser Blücher on 9 April 1940.

One can visit the fortress by a short ferry trip from Drøbak and is a popular island by locals and tourists. The public has access to most of the fortress and the beautiful nature surrounding it.

The many old wooden houses together with shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants makes the old town Drøbak unique and worth a visit. Visit Tregaardens Christmas House and Father Christmas’ Post Office with it’s own special post stamp.

The drive from Drøbak to Oslo will take about 30 minutes through beautiful Norwegian landscape. We will do a short photo stop along the way at Hvervenbukta.
