Thereafter our day will take us to visit Viking Ship Museum, famous for the completely whole Oseberg viking vessel, excavated from the largest known ship burial in the world.
Next we will tour the north western side of Oslo, Holmenkollen hill and break for a photo stop of the foot of the famous ski jump tower before tucking into our delicious tasting menu Norwegian traditional delicacies. This unique log structure dates back to the 1890s when the beginning was rather high-society than the hikers and nature lovers of today. Some free time is also reserved for shopping.

Simmered salmon with cucumber salad
Air cured lamb
Elk Sausage accompanied by condiments and dressings
Returning to the city, we will see the medieval castle built around 1300, the majestic Akershus stronghold, intended to protect the Norwegian capital city, but today is instead full of amazing stories of royal events and haunted legends. Left of the Akershus castle is the red-brick Oslo City Hall, the famous venue of Nobel Peace Prize ceremony every December.
On the other side this hill we will find the The Oslo Opera House, home of The Norwegian National Opera and Ballet.This outstanding structure contains 1,100 rooms and the angled exterior surfaces of the building are covered with marble from Carrara, Italy as well as white granite making it appear to rise from the water.
