A guided bike tour or bike rental is the perfect way to discover Oslo, one of the world's greenest cities. A bike takes you to all the places a bus cannot: along the beautifully preserved fjord coastline, among the trees and lakes in Europe's largest urban forest, next to rushing waterfalls in the downtown, through the old castle grounds and the Royal Palace Gardens or perhaps along the stunningly modern car-free harbor. Let Viking Biking show you all Oslo has to offer.

Hired brand new city bike for a day. The bikes were good and you got everything you needed with them. We bought the map for 250kr, it was good as it gave you two loops to do, but it wasn't overly detailed and we had to use google maps a couple of times to help us navigate. The reason it... More

Fantastic and fun bike tour. Thanks to Kurt and Elenor for a memorable afternoon in Oslo! We saw many sights we never would have on our own, plus learnt so much about the history & culture of both Oslo and Norway (and no boring bits!) Highly recommended!

Hi Linda, A big thanks from the two of us who were guiding your tour. It was a pleasure to show you around Oslo and both of you were so easy going that it made it feel more like a bike ride with some friends than work. We hope you enjoy the rest of your time in Norway! Viking Biking More

Hi Stan, Thank you so much for the nice review. We are glad you enjoyed your ride with us and found it easy to get around. The one hill leading up to the Royal Palace is worth it though -- great view over the city center, and as my dad used to say, it builds character! Best regards, Curtis More

We visited all the main sites plus places I would never have thought of, and we had plenty of time to get off the bikes and look around. A great tour for all Oslo visitors, young and old.... More

Viking Biking rents bikes and gives 2-hour bike tours of Oslo. We had a great time riding with them.
