Get the best of both worlds on one 3.5 hour tour: experience some of Oslo's world famous art while enjoying the amazing nature and scenery for which Norway is famous. This tour combines fjord views and beautiful forests with art and history, all while discovering a part of the city overlooked by many tourists.
The tour begins with a charming tram ride up the hill to the starting point of the walk (tram ticket not included, please see the price category below for more details). The highlight of the tour is the amazing Ekeberg sculpture park, which blends stunning nature with one of the world's most original sculpture parks, focusing on the strength and role of women. Walking through the forest perched above the Oslo fjord, it is an unforgettable journey from one surprising sculpture to the next.
Another great site which shouldn't be missed yet is rarely visited by the average tourist is the viewpoint from which Edvard Munch painted the Scream more than 100 years ago. Imagine standing where one of the world's most iconic paintings was first sketched.
Along the way, we pass some amazing World War II history, one of Oslo's most beautiful art-deco restaurants with a coffee stop included, and the city's original old town Gamlebyen.
