A trip in Oslo

This tour is inspired by my own experience in Oslo. It can be modified according to your wishes. It presents the city's essentials and everything that makes it so charming. For more information on Oslo and Norway, visit my website: www.untourabergen.com

Arrival at Oslo airport

The connection between the airport and the city center of Oslo is provided by train (flytoget). The connection can also be made by taking the train of a regular line, a little slower (30 minutes against twenty minutes). So count about ten euros less than with the flytoget.

Useful info (public transportation)

Oslo is very well endowed with public transport. There are regular tram, bus and boat lines. Its metro, which serves a large part of the city, is very easy and pleasant to use. Tickets can be purchased at several points of sale (ticket offices, Narvesen kiosks, tourist office, etc.) but are free with the Oslo Pass. Oslo is not a very big city despite the large size of its municipality, it is relatively easy to get around and visit it on foot or by bike.

Useful info (food)

For your meals, catering prices are quite expensive compared to other countries. For an average budget, treat yourself to one or two outings to a restaurant. You will find many mini markets where you can buy your provisions (the concept of supermarket hardly exists in Norway). Norwegians often eat toast (matpakke), so you will find a lot of sliced ​​bread and all kinds of foods to spread on it. Among the curiosities to taste: brunost (brown cheese with a mild and sweet flavor), kaviar (fish roe paste in a tube), fiskekaker (kinds of savory pancakes with fish) and kanelboller (rolled cakes cinnamon, even better reheated and with Chantilly cream).
