Active, Urban and Green

The mix of capital city vibe and stunning nature makes Oslo a cosmopolitan seaside city. Visitors can enjoy the unique experience of a brisk forest walk, the relaxing fjord breeze and the busy atmosphere of the city, all in one day. Numerous museums and art galleries offer plenty of options for things to see and do: The Viking Ship Museum, where original longboats are on display, the Munch Museum, the National Gallery, home of Edvard Munch’s incredibly famous painting the “Scream”, and the dock side waterfront where the new Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art and The Opera are located – to name a few.
