Oslo Shore Excursion: City Sightseeing Oslo Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

City Sightseeing Oslo

Leave your cruise ship at the port, and make your own way into downtown Oslo to explore by City Sightseeing bus. Show your voucher to the driver and hop aboard at any of the 17 stops around town. How long you stay on board is up to you; hop on and off whenever and wherever you like. Your voucher is valid for 24 hours.

Hop off to see Akershus Fortress, the head-turning medieval castle, surrounded by greenery, or immerse yourself in Norway’s Viking history with a visit to the Viking Ship Museum. Other sights you may want to see include Vigeland Sculpture Park or Christiana Square with its striking architecture.

Stay on board for the full 1.5-hour loop if you wish and sightsee from the comfort of your bus. Read the Itinerary for a list of stops and sights.

This activity is within a 10-minute walk to the Port of Oslo, so you determine the time you return to your ship. Please allow yourself ample time to enjoy the excursion and ensure you have plenty of time to return to port. This shore excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.

Hop-On Hop-Off tour was very convenient from Oslo cruise port terminal. The bus was waiting right at the gate of the terminal before the time indicated on the confirmation voucher for the first tour. City sightseeing was prominently written on the red coloured bus and the staff was quick enough to exchange our booking confirmation vouchers for the tickets. The bus goes on all the highlights of the city and the frequency of the buses is good. The city of Oslo and attractions are quite spread out in area and therefore walking the city could be tiresome and choosing HOHO tours are economic options. Do check the opening and closing times of the places of attraction carefully. For passengers arriving in Oslo on cruise and only have one day, this tour is highly recommended.

Worked very well as a shore excursion from the ship. They picked us up right at the ship and dropped us off nearby. Very convenient and an easy way to see the city!

The bus(s) were frequent and plenty of them. We were able to get around the city and see all the sites outside the city that would not be accessible with a walking tour. The narration was also clear and informative. We recommend this option for a good overview of the city.
