Cultural Oslo, in combination with a boat trip and exquisite cuisine
We start the day with a visit to the Deichman Library, a magnificent building in Bjørvika, in the same area as many of the best-known attractions in Oslo. Norway’s largest public library has become an important part of the city’s cultural scene, and is popular among both locals and visitors. It is a great place to spend some time and explore everything the library has to offer, from books and films to exhibitions and events.
Leaving the library, it only takes a few minutes to walk to the Oslo Opera House. This extraordinary building, Norway’s first opera house, has consolidated its position as an architectural and artistic success, overflowing with visitors inside and outside. The Opera House’s restaurant, Havsmak, can offer a delicious lunch featuring locally caught fish before you take to the water for your Oslofjord tour.
From the Opera House, it is about a ten-minute walk along Operastranden to Langkaia, where Legacy of The Fjords, your electric, sustainable boat, awaits you. The atmosphere on board is relaxing, and you will be able to enjoy delicious local food and something nice to drink. Legacy of The Fjords is helping to make Oslo into an even more sustainable tourist destination
For the evening, might we suggest dinner at Oslo’s renowned Michelin-starred restaurant Maaemo? We can guarantee one of the best meals of your life. Make sure to book a table well in advance though. Another excellent option is Ekebergrestauranten, located in the hills above the city, from where you can enjoy the views across the Oslofjord and look down on everything you have experienced on this memorable day exploring Oslo.
The urban Oslo, in combination with a boat trip and swimming
Pack your swimming costume and get ready for a fun day in Oslo. This itinerary begins with Legacy of The Fjords’ first departure of the day, and we suggest enjoying breakfast on board on your Oslofjord tour, which starts at 10 a.m.
Legacy of the Fjords is moored close to the harbour promenade and the popular KOK sauna. We hope you are now ready for a new fjord experience: KOK is a floating facility that allows you to enjoy a hot sauna followed by a refreshing plunge into the sea. This is a glorious break from the big city, right on the Oslofjord
After a swim, it’s time for lunch: how about some street food at Vippa restaurant, so close to the water’s edge that you can almost dip your toes in the sea? Vippa is at the head of the Oslofjord, about a 15-minute walk from Bjørvika. It is a popular, vibrant location, serving dishes from 11 different food stations.
In the evening, we recommend a relaxing dinner in Oslo at SALT, an exciting concept combining culture, festival and food in one package. The building is an art project that reflects the old fishing culture along the coast, and SALT has developed into an everlasting harbour festival in Oslo.
