Hostel Tips for Oslo
Oslo - small and big at the same time!
The city of Oslo is known for its unique combination of city life and outdoor activities. As the capital of Norway, you can enjoy all the things you expect to find in a European big city ñ trendy shopping, nice restaurants, cool bars, art galleries, and various entertainments.
You probably already know that Oslo and Norway is known for famous artists (Munch, Ibsen, Vigeland) and explorers (Vikings, Heyerdahl, Amundsen). At the same time, Oslo can give you exceptional outdoor experiences. Freshness is a word visitors often mention after visiting this city.
With a unique location in the Oslo Fjord, the city is close to both water and wild nature. In the winter time, cross country skiing and alpine skiing is popular and available activities, just 15 minutes from the city centre. There you will find the newly opened Tryvann WinterPark. You can even go ice skating in a park next to the main street.
During summer, the Fjord offers good opportunities to go swimming, sailing, or just relaxing on one of the small islands just outside the city centre.
