The Norway’s capital is at once historic, modern, romantic, intellectual, grandiose and elegantly understated.
Oslo, the capital city of Norway, is not just a pricey European city with expensive beers washing down expensive food. It is all that, but when put into the perspective of what a fantastic place it is, Oslo is well worth the little bit extra. The little bit extra can be justified as a beauty-tax, as Oslo is clean, green and functional and always has a few beautiful surprises for visitors and locals alike.
No trip to Oslo should not have an obligatory Beer Tour. As a city, it is loaded with marvelous craft breweries everywhere, and all of them thrive on creating an enjoyable Norwegian experience rounded off with excellent beer. We can secure a tour group, in English, and there will be drinks and food included. There might even be some dancing.
Most people want to find out more about the Vikings – those rabble-rousing, mead-drinking warriors that caused so much trouble wherever they went. In Oslo, there is the Viking Ship Museum with several traditional longboats perfectly preserved, and other Viking ships on display.
Waffles are almost a staple diet in Norway, and Oslo has a plethora of waffle outlets. They are both savory or sweet and enjoyed as a main meal or a dessert, or both if you’re obsessed. Another dish in Norway that might seem a little odd is reindeer. There are many ways to prepare reindeer, and it is quite frankly delicious as long as you don’t think of Rudolph and friends. We can assist and guide you to our favourite restaurants, or to anything that you might feel drawn to.
As mentioned previously, there is so much to do and see in Oslo. It seems that there is a live music concert or event every weekend. If not music, then there is often an art exhibition or some sort of cultural gathering on the streets, and often these exhibits are free.
Another part of Oslo that is worthy of a visit is the Akker Brygge, a stylish waterside development that flourishes under the summer sun. The old harbor has developed into modern and trendy shopping and dining options, and the open plan makes it a popular visiting spot. Let us assist with a sight-seeing itinerary during your stay.
There are many places to stay in Oslo, and many of them are definitely in the upper margin for prices. We can help find a few budget-friendly options, as we have a few great insights into alternatives in the inner city or Sentrum. Staying here means you can walk to many places. On the east-side of the town, Grunerlokka and Torshov are both trendy and vibrant areas. At the same time, on the west-side, St Hanshaugen is mainly residential and is an excellent area for good accommodation options.
There is a handy public transport system, but as much of Oslo it is quite pricey. To get around this makes sure that you buy a longer-range ticket (weekly) and buy it from a local store, as it will be nearly 40% cheaper than buying it from a conductor.Share this tour
