Oslo – the capital that offers everything!

The city is situated at the end of the Oslofjord and is surrounded by green hills with hiking paths and bathing sites. Oslo is Norway’s biggest city and became the capital of Norway in 1814.

Oslo is known for its opportunities and outdoor experiences. From Karl Johans gate, you are just five minutes away from Aker Brygge and Rådhuskaia.

You are also close to the forest – in the winter there are many kilometers of prepared cross-country ski trails that attract many visitors, and in the summer, there are beautiful paths and bathing sites. Oslo’s cultural life is rich and diverse. Museums, art galleries, shopping and restaurants.
