Top experiences in Oslo
Oslo is the capital and some would say the only real city in Norway. It is situated in the south east, in the bay of the Oslo fjord. The city has a population of about 500.000, and is growing at a fast pace.
With vast forests and islands easily accessible by public transport, Oslo offers a unique combination of urban sprawl with nature and wild life. In the summer the islands are a must, and a popular destination for locals and tourists alike. In the winter, you will find the cross country slopes full of enthusiastic Norwegians; there are even lighted slopes so people can defy the short days to go skiing. Other highlights include the famous park Vigelandsparken, a humble royal castle ("It´s not even bigger than The white house, was a recent complaint by an unimpressed American traveler), the viking ships at Bygdøy, as well as the newly built and very popular city opera.
