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.

We are normally open in November, as it is cold but still okay for biking. Of course, sometimes snow can come early in which case we are closed. What I recommend is you contact us directly via our website later this autumn... More

I don't think so. But, we had some rainy weather, and it really wasn't a problem. The city is very bike friendly and rain is the norm.
