Between the Oslofjord and the forests lies Norway’s capital, Oslo, a cool and enchanting city rich in culture. With its exciting design, abundant cultural attractions, vibrant food scene and fabulous outdoor activities, the Norwegian capital certainly packs a punch.

Go for a stroll in the lively neighbourhoods where you’ll find everything from innovative architecture and world-class museums to hip bars and food halls, or immerse yourself in the outdoors - the Oslofjord’s waterways and islands are just minutes away from the centre, as are the ski slopes and forests of Nordmarka. You will be astonished by the harmony of architectural innovation and wild nature.

Prepare to fall in love with Oslo.
