Oslo is a lively and innovative city; nestled in its fjord, surrounded by sea and forests, but with a contemporary soul, it offers forefront architectures, cultural events and an extremely pleasant flow of life. We suggest to dedicate some time to explore it. You can start from its rich cultural scene; the city offers an incredibly high number of museums, among them the Norsk Folksmuseum, an open-air museum made of 160 historical buildings, dedicated to Norway’s cultural history. Another unmissable site is the Nobel Peace Centre, located in the heart of the city, it offers guided visits in many languages and hosts temporary and permanent exhibitions. From here, you can continue walking among shops and restaurants on the Aker Brygge, a perfect mix of contemporary coolness and tradition. After dinner, choose a place on one of the wooden piers and enjoy the endless Scandinavian Summer sunset.

We suggest to visit Saluhallen, the biggest indoor market where you can find a good amount of typical delicacies, then have coffee in Haga, the oldest neighborhood in Gothenburg.
You will then ride out of the city following the rocky and very jagged coast of Sweden, dotted with multicolored beach huts until reaching the coastal town of Kungsbacka with the Tjolöholm castle and its landscaped gardens.

wherewe warmly suggest to make a stop at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, one of the most important European Museums of Modern Art and architecture master chief where art and nature melt in the most harmonious way.
