Discover elegant Oslo on a guided city tour this morning. Exploring the city on foot, your tour takes in some of Oslo's most important and popular sights, including the new State Opera House and Oslo City Hall, where the Nobel Peace Prize is famously awarded. Following this, enjoy a food tasting of traditional Norwegian specialties at a local restaurant.

For the rest of the afternoon, and this evening, you are at leisure. Perhaps visit one of the many museums and art galleries that pervade the town? The Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art is a wonder to behold both inside and out, with an architecturally pleasing exterior that mixes the modernity of the times with the traditional wooden houses one would associate with Scandinavia.

Alternatively, why not enjoy a scenic cruise on Oslofjord. You can either choose to visit the many islands that are scattered within this calming expanse of water, or simply relax and enjoy the scenery as it passes serenely by. On one of the islands, you can find the imposing Oscarborg Fortress, once an important bastion during World War II, and now a museum detailing it's history, and containing a variety of exhibitions detailing its use during this turbulent time.
