This nine-hour day trip from Oslo allows you to explore Norway’s most astonishing and important fortresses and castles.

Start the day in Oslo and learn more about the history of Oslo City Hall and Akershus Fortress from your tour guide. Then, our tour bus will take you to visit the town of Drøbak, where you will be able to see the location of Oscarborg Fortress and the residence of Julenisse, the Norwegian Santa Claus. From this fairy town, we head further to the fortress city Fredrikstad, where narrow old streets and walls preserve the glory of past days. Then we head to the borderline town of Halden and the famous Fredriksten Festning. Once we are inside the borderline fortress, we will also cast a look at the border itself. We will head to the bridge where you can put one leg in Norway and the other one in Sweden!

At the end of the trip, we will return to Oslo.
