Oslo, Norway Pictures

Cruise Photos of Oslo from Northern Europe Cruise


Oslo, Norway is a popular port of call for many summer northern European and Baltic cruises. It also is an entry point for those flying to Norway for a Hurtigruten cruise of western Norway between Kirkenes and Bergen.

With only 600,000 residents, Oslo is a small European capital, but has many interesting, diverse sites for tourists. Cruise ships usually spend one day in Oslo, and cruise passengers can choose sites rich in history, art, and sports. I have been to Oslo three times and still haven't seen it all, but these 10 suggestions of things to do in Oslo are a good start for visitors. These pictures from Oslo offer a sampling of things to do and see in Oslo with a day in port or an extended stay in the city before or after a cruise vacation.
