Overview
More
Oslo, recent winner of the EU's European Green Capital Award, is best discovered when active and outdoors. Explore all the places a bus cannot: take a bike tour and cycle through the Royal Palace Gardens or next to rushing waterfalls in the downtown; rent a bike and make your way to the various beaches along the coast; hike among the hills and lakes in Europe's largest urban forest; or island hop on one of our nature walks. Let Viking Biking and Viking Hiking show you all Oslo has to offer.

This is the way to see Oslo highlights in a half-day. Good, solid equipment, very friendly folks running the place, and a competitive price (even for Oslo.) Their location is especially good if you're staying at the Perminalen. Helmets, apparently, are not required in Norway,...More
