Discover Oslo’s history on our day and evening tours. Enjoy a flexible experience with our pass, which is valid for three days. Start your tours at University Aula and explore the city at your own pace with the free Vox City app included in your ticket.
Oslo has a long and impressive nautical history that led it to become one of Europe’s leading centres of trade. While the Vikings are long gone, the city is rooted in its maritime heritage to this day. With the help of our Oslo walking tours, you’ll get an unparalleled insight into what makes this Scandinavian city stand out.
On our guided tour, we circle Sentrum, Oslo's diverse city center positioned on the Oslofjord, to show you its best landmarks, museums, restaurants, and bars. Starting at the University of Oslo, we will admire the 19th-century architecture of the city center. We will see the Norwegian Parliament, the Grand Hotel, the shopping area, and other features on the main street of Karl Johan. You will learn how Oslo earned its nickname 'Tiger City' and start passing Havnepromenade, where the symbolic Norwegian Opera House stands out like a pearl in the ocean. Next, we walk towards Christiania, the historical center of Oslo's 17th century; you will know why the Norwegian capital changed its name 300 years. The tour ends not far from City Hall, which holds the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony every December. You'll need to join our tour to find out all about those!

What is a self-guided tour?
A self-guided tour is a type of tour where visitors explore a destination on their own using an audio guide or a map. Unlike a guided tour, visitors are not led by a tour guide and are free to choose their own pace and explore the sights that interest them the most. Self-guided tours offer more flexibility and freedom to visitors. They are a popular option for those who prefer to explore a destination independently.
Is a Walking Tour suitable for all ages?
The walking tour is suitable for all ages, but keep in mind that it involves a fair amount of walking and standing, so participants should be able to walk for at least 2.5 hours. Additionally, wearing comfortable walking shoes and bringing a water bottle can help ensure that you're comfortable throughout the tour
What is a Multilingual Audio tour?
A multilingual audio tour is a type of tour that provides visitors with audio guides in multiple languages. Visitors can use headphones to listen to the audio guide as they explore a destination, with the audio guide providing information about the sights, history, and culture of the area. The audio guides are typically pre-recorded and offer visitors the option to choose their preferred language.
