In terms of land area, Oslo is one of Europe’s largest capital cities, but by population it’s one of the smaller, which means there is plenty of room for everyone, and for all of the activities that Norwegians are mad on. Skiing, sailing, kayaking, even ski-jumping: all of these are on offer within close range of the city centre, and in some pretty spectacular settings. But don’t assume that it’s only worth a visit if you’re an adrenaline junkie: cultural buffs can head for the National Gallery or the open-air sculpture park, Vigeland Park, or for a taste of Norway’s past, you must visit the Norwegian open-air Folk Museum.
Perched hundreds of metres above Oslo and its fjord, the wilderness of Oslo is an amazing getaway from the city. Hike from one view point to another, stopping along the way at the Holmenkollen ski jump and the national historic landmark farm of Frognerseteren. There’s time to pick berries, picnic on a bare summit and maybe see a moose. The tour ends at a forest lake perfect for a swim.
Oslo in the summer is all about the water. This is a great way to see more of the outdoor lifestyle. As you head through narrow sounds, idyllic bays and pass a maze of islands with brightly coloured painted summer houses.
Walk with a guide to discover a tempting array of eateries, sip locally produced craft beer, at the market nibble on cheese tasters and homemade honey and in a prestigious restaurant sample delicious local specialities like aquavit sausages and strawberries.
Delve into Norway’s history and enjoy a visit to the Vigeland Park, the world’s largest sculpture park. Follow a guide along Karl Johans gate to attractions including the medieval Akershus Fortress and the Opera House, and gain insight into the Norwegian way of life.
After some basic Segway training, buzz through the city streets taking in some of the sights as you go - the National Opera House, Parliament and the University of Oslo, the Royal Castle, the Aker Brygge neighbourhood and visit Akershus Fortress, an impressive medieval castle once used as a prison.
Experience Oslo from its most beautiful side. Starting from the sheltered bay at Sjølyst Marina it is only a short way to small islands and fantastic beaches.
