Visit Oslo

Beautiful nature and cultural attractions

Discover Oslo when cruising from Copenhagen. With daily departures from both Copenhagen and Oslo you can always decide the length of your visit in Oslo by choosing a one way cruise, a​ roundtrip cruise, or a three day roundtrip Mini Cruise. 

Oslo is rapidly becoming a capital of culture and contemporary architecture. Modern landmarks by world renowned architects are creating a brand new skyline, but there is much more to Oslo than just modern architecture.

In fact, Oslo is the only European capital where you can go hiking, kayaking, skiing, and sailing without ever leaving the city.
An icon of contemporary Scandinavian architecture, the Oslo Opera House, is also spearheading Oslo’s campaign to become an internationally recognized cultural city.
You will find w​orld-class restaurants, museums, and art galleries in Oslo as well, including the most complete collection of Viking ships, tools, and artifacts in Scandinavia. Explore Oslo and find unique experiences and tourist attractions unlike any other!
