• Luxury Oslo Holidays
  • Overview

    Nestling between Oslofjord and forested hills, Oslo boasts a closeness to nature that few other capitals can match and which in turn allows for a great choice of year-round outdoor pursuits. Add to this a cosmopolitan buzz, an abundance of award-winning architecture, friendly neighbourhoods, outstanding cuisine and a great cultural scene and this rapidly growing city offers a city break with a difference.

    The Norwegian capital’s eco-friendly approach has earned it the title European Green Capital for 2019 and as a pedestrian-friendly city it’s easy to explore on foot, or by bicycle.

    There are plenty of sights to discover with a stately royal palace, an award-winning opera house, fascinating museums and galleries. Discover everything from the Viking era to polar exploration and contemporary art. Or, simply a stroll around one of the beautiful districts.

    Bjørvika, the former container port today boasts great outdoor spaces, an unique pedestrian bridge, and fascinating architecture such Barcode with its exclusive shops and art galleries. East of the river the hip Grünerløkka is a great shopping district with design and vintage stores, cosy cafés, restaurants, bars and parks aplenty, whilst the mainly residential Bygdøy peninsula is home to several of the most popular museums.

    The lively waterfront area of Aker Brygge is famed for its boardwalk lined with restaurants and Tjuvholmen, the city’s newest borough features intriguing architecture, outdoor spaces, high-end restaurants and several galleries and art installations.

    When to visit

    Whatever time of year there is a great choice of sightseeing as well as events and festivals; from major music festivals with world-class performers to various dance shows, theatre, opera, stand-up comedy and the latest gallery exhibitions. Summer is warm, days are long, evenings are light and rooftop terraces are perfect for a leisurely drink and views. An exceptional collection of outdoor artworks and urban swimming in the fjord add to the laid-back, outdoor lifestyle in summer. Embrace the cold if visiting in winter with a range of outdoor activities with several ice rinks in the city, or from early December stock up on gifts and traditional food and drink at the Christmas markets.
