Nearby forests and hiking trails aren’t typically characteristic of a sprawling urban city, but Oslo, Norway’s capital and largest city, holds a surprising abundance of diversity from its landscape to cultural activities.

With only 530,000 residents, Oslo maintains a balance of a big city (relative to the rest of Norway) with wooden houses that line historic streets, which gives the city a small-town sensibility that ties in with its deep historical roots.

Because Oslo is situated on the Oslo Fjord bay, which runs for nearly 60 miles on the coast of Norway, there’s no shortage of outdoor activities that are water related; ice skating, kayaking and hiking along the coast are easily accessible from Oslo. Viking fans will enjoy the city’s deep-rooted history, as Oslo was founded by a Viking king in 1,000 A.D.

The Oslo guests reflect this diverse heritage. To learn more about Oslo, Norway and see guests, click here.
