A 45-minute leisurely drive to the small, picturesque town of Drøbak brings you to the narrowest point of Oslofjord. This small town grew up in the 1700s, supported by the timber industry and shipping. It was also the winter port for Oslo. Today, it pays homage to the past with tiny, well-preserved wooden houses and charming narrow streets. Strict preservation laws mean that many original buildings from the town's heyday still exist, and much of the city center looks as it did more than a century ago.
Enjoy time to wander through the charming streets and market-square stalls selling antiques and bric-à-brac or shopping in the small boutiques and galleries. You may choose to simply people-watch from a cozy café (at your own expense) and take in the lovely views over Oslofjord.
Drøbak is called 'the Christmas town' because of its famous year-round Christmas shop. Take advantage of the chance to shop for festive gifts in Scandinavia's only permanent Christmas store. Feel free to send a greeting to loved ones with an official Christmas postmark (at your own expense).
Continue to Oslo's Vigeland Sculpture Park. A guided stroll takes you through part of this park, which is arranged over 79 acres and displays 200 sculptures created by Gustav Vigeland in granite, bronze and wrought iron. The artist never explained his works, leaving the interpretation to the beholder.
Wear comfortable walking shoes. Use of an audio headset (included) will enhance your tour experience. Bring local currency, as the Christmas store accepts only Norwegian kroner and credit cards.
