Destination Oslo

Welcome to Oslo!

Whilst Oslo could be considered the smaller sibling of OURWAY Tours’ Scandinavian cities, it more than holds-its-own identity within our family of fantastic destinations. This compact city has had a complex past, with Norway having only become fully independent in 1905 – both Denmark and Sweden have had their share of power over the centuries! Whilst proudly patriotic as the nation’s capital, Oslo is a hugely welcoming city for visitors and enjoys a diverse population with many sides to its character.

Whether you get here by water or another way, the fjord is hard to miss…lucky for you! Its beautiful blue waters to the south complement the rising hillsides of the forest surrounding Oslo. Thanks to the Fjord City Project of the last few decades, easy access to the fjord and an enjoyable atmosphere around the water is of huge priority for the people of Oslo. For visitors and locals, wherever you find yourself, you’re close to the calming nature of the water and woods.

It’s easy to understand why the city was awarded the European Green Capital in 2019…and not just for its terrain! The conservation of its clean air and streets with its advanced infrastructure – including mostly-electric transport system – has made Oslo an inspirational illustration of a modern 21st Century city. This balances well with the preservation of its past, beginning with the unearthed Norse burial ships at home in the Viking Ship Museum. Its resilient history also proudly boasts the Nobel-Peace-Prize-giving City Hall, an enviously socially-democratic attitude reflected in its Parliament whilst boasting a much-loved Royal Family who looks adoringly over the capital from their Palace.

With nature and important national treasures to boast about, Oslo is still far from being trapped in tradition. From the iceberg cool architecture of the Opera House and beautiful street art, the modern eclectic expression is available for all to see. Oslo has hipster micro-breweries, a diverse music scene and a strong thirst for challenging theatre – inspired in the home of the ‘scandalous’ genius of playwright Henrik Ibsen. These traditional and modern marvels that make up the many sides of Oslo await you – let us at OURWAY Tours be your guide to the really good stuff!

Happy Nobel Day! 💡 As Nobel Week was cancelled in 2020, Nobel lectures, prizes and banquets were replaced with Nobel Week Lights – light installations inspired by Nobel Prize-awarded findings and laureates. As the festivities are now back, we sure hope that we are so lucky that the artwork brightening up the city during the darkest month of the year; is a December tradition that has come to stay. 💫

🇸🇪 
Nobeldagen är här! 💡 Nobelveckan blev inställd 2020, och istället för Nobelföreläsningar, prisutdelning och bankett genomfördes Nobel Week Lights som är ljusinstallationer inspirerade av Nobelpris på olika platser i Stockholm. Det blev så uppskattat att det genomförs i år igen trots att Nobelveckan är återinförd. Har vi tur så är det en decembertradition som kommit för att stanna. 💫

It’s a contested issue amongst numerous Baltic connected countries as to who invented the Ice-skate. Was it the Finns or the Dutch? All of this is irrelevant because the best city to ice-skate in is Stockholm. If you want to show off your Quadruple Axel in front of the masses, the ice-rink in Kungsträdgården is the perfect location. ✨⛸️✨

Don`t let its controversy cloud your curiosity as Christianshavns characteristic slanting roofs and canals, as well as the tremendous Church of Our Saviour, are well worth seeing. Not to forget the Færgecafé or Café Parterre who are both worth visiting.

A few hundred years ago, if you asked a Norwegian how old they were they might reply “I have seen forty winters!” Every year of life was a success! Now, living conditions are of course much improved, but there is no such thing as a mild winter here. Bring thermal underwear, wool and grow a beard… if you can. ❄️☃️☃️

Of course, if you love the snow and want to ski, then you`re in the perfect place, and you get to see the beauty of Oslo in a truly Nordic light! The canvas of white snow – unpredictable but usually arriving in November/December – can provide a canvas of light across the city that makes up for the few hours of sunlight the people of Oslo get to enjoy. While still beautiful, it`s best to stay inside! ✨✨

The temperature might not be super-cold in Winter in Copenhagen, but strong winds make it quite chilly. 🌬 The city is still quite magical. 🌟 The Christmas markets open already in the middle of November so that you can warm up with a hot Gløgg! Expect 10 to 13 rainy days per month.

The first snow is here with us in Stockholm! 😍❄

Södermalm (the South Island) is the largest of all the islands that make up Stockholm. For the majority of Stockholm`s existence, it has been the home of the poor and the working class. Not anymore! Today, the hipsters have well and truly transformed Södermalm into a trendy place to live, work and play. 🐱‍👓

What`s a better winter activity than museum hopping? Not much, if you ask us. Let us introduce you to Bygdøy (also known as museum heaven), the peninsula in Oslo where you find a big collection of museums close to each other. Perfect! ❄️

Our favourite time of the year is here! 🎅🏻🎄 If you are in Stockholm for this festive season, make sure you make it a tasty one 😋 and try:

🌟 Freshly baked saffron buns, also called “lussekatter”, preferably filled with almond paste.

🌟 Gingerbread cookies and having them with blue cheese, it’s an odd yet delicious combo, we promise!

🌟 Freshly made candy cane, if you pop into @gamlastanspolka and find them baking the candy canes, they often let you try the mix. Soft candy cane should be a thing!
