OSLO – VINSTRA
We enjoy a leisurely breakfast, before we start our journey to the fjordlands.
We start our day with a visit of the Oslo City Hall, where the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded on the 10th of December every year.
On route we visit the famous Vigeland Park. At Vigeland Park, we admire the sculptures by celebrated Norwegian sculptor, Gustav Vigeland. These 212 famous works of art celebrate life, from birth to death. It will be one of the memories of Oslo that you will treasure for ever!
The next few days of the tour are done by coach and ferry. From now on we will gasp at the breath-taking scenery. Enough memory cards and batteries for cameras are indispensable. We travel through Lillehammer, which gained international fame as the host of the 1994 Winter Olympic Games. Since then, tourism has flourished in this Norwegian city.
Skiing is excellent, of course, but even non-skiers can experience the thrill of the slopes by taking a lift to the top of Lysgårdsbakken Olympic ski jump site. Explore the awesome collections and structures of the Maihaugen open-air museum or hike the Fåberg Cultural Trail to the site of ancient petroglyphs.
