Day 1 - Arrive in Oslo and transfer to your centrally located hotel
Arrive in Oslo, the beautiful Norwegian capital by the Oslofjord. Make your own way to your centrally located hotel in the heart of Oslo, an easy direct express train ride away from the airport. The Norwegian capital has a great deal to offer for the observant traveller. We can recommend a walk around the centre of town to view the Parliament, the Castle, and the Harbour area.
Day 2 - Discover Oslo with Pack Rafting on the local city waterways
After breakfast, head out to explore Oslo along the waterways with a 1-hour river raft-tour down the Akerselva river in the centre of Oslo. This tour is an easy accessible tour and great fun! You will end up in the Oslofjord, by the Opera House, super convenient for an icecream before entering the new Deichman Oslo library.
Depending on the weather, is it time to hit the beach or a museum? You can go paddle boarding or book an hour on one of the floating saunas. The Viking and Kontiki museums are popular to visit for families or if you have teenagers, perhaps they would enjoy the thrill of ice climbing at the new SNO indoor ski centre.
This evening, we suggest a fjord sunset sailing trip or a 'engang grill' picnic in Frogner park.
Optional Add Ons
Day 3 - Head out into the Norwegian countryside for a walk with Alpacas
This morning be ready to see some lovely Norwegian countryside with a walk with alpacas. Alpaca walking is a unique experience where you get to meet, handle and have the responsibility for your very own alpaca.
Private transfer to this small family run farm. You will meet the alpacas (in summer, the babies) and halter them up. You will then walk the alpacas on a scenic nature path in typical Norwegian landscape; fields, woods and hills. The alpacas are mild, curious and friendly. They are not aggressive and never bite or anything alike.
Back in the city by early afternoon, you have the rest of the day at your leisure. Why not head up to Holmenkollen to the ski jumping museum and have a go!
TransportationLocal train and transfers to the Alpaca farm included.
Day 4 - Departure day
After breakfast, continue your journey onwards or home. Ask us for ideas if you want to extend your tour.
