As Norway’s capital, Oslo provides a range of unique opportunities. You are never too far from the great outdoors nor urban comforts and there's always plenty to see and do. Visit Munch Museum to view of over 1,000 artistic masterpieces by the local artist Edvard Munch, discover a 9th-century wooden boat at The Viking Ship Museum or wander around Vigeland Sculpture Park featuring over 200 sculptures. After a day in the city, take a short trip south to explore Oslofjord. With cycling paths and country lanes around the fjord, your journey will bring you to pretty harbour villages, idyllic beaches and iconic lighthouses. There are also several little islands which you can travel to by boat. Travel north to Bygdoy, a residential area covered with greenery. Amongst its many attractions, you’ll discover the Fram Museum with its polar ship display, the Kon-Tiki Museum dedicated to the life of Norwegian adventurer Thor Heyerdahl and the magnificent Norsk Folkemuseum representing Norway’s cultural history. This area also has some lovely little sandy bays like the golden crescent shores of Huk beach or the silvery sands of Paradisbukta beach.
