OSLO. 3hrs. Want to see the many regal locations of Oslo? Our Royal Oslo Private Bike Tour covers the ruins of Old Oslo, a medieval castle, the residence of Norway's King & Queen and the site of royal weddings. How's that for a start?
Are you the active type hoping to experience a Bicycle Monarchy? Usually, we would recommend the Netherlands or Denmark for that, but since you are already here, let's make an exception. On our Royal Oslo Private Bike Tour, we give homage to the Norwegian Royals by exploring the city centre, home to the charming Royal Palace, the stronghold Akershus Fortress and Oslo Cathedral.
Let's start by examining the Royal Palace, the official living quarters of the King & Queen. As we make our way through the palace grounds, let us introduce you to the Queen's and her interest in arts and the King's as well as his sportiness on the world stage. We'll answer questions such as where the Norwegian Monarchy descend from (it's not what you think)? How the Crown Princ and Mette Marit met? How many palaces the Norwegian Royal Family have at their disposal?
A hop, skip, and a jump from the Royal Palace, we find the Oslo Cathedral, the main church of Norway and where a commoner became a Crown Princess in 2001. From church to fortress, it's time to mount our bikes and cycle zoom over to Akershus Fortress. A former royal residence, built to protect the city, the castle has also been used as a military base and prison. Today it serves as the temporary office of the Prime minister of Norway.
Before you know it, time is up, but before we let you go, we'll make time for the ruins of medieval Oslo, where we'll kneel before Harald III, the last Viking King and founder of Oslo and wander through the ruins of the Old Town. There it is our Royal Oslo Private Bike Tour!
Please note: We will be biking on flat surfaces as well as on a few hills. We recommend bringing a bottle of water with you on the tour. Akershus Fortress and The Royal Palace will be seen from the outside only. Oslo Domkyrka (Oslo Cathedral) may sometimes be closed due to religious ceremonies.
