Oslo’s unique location means almost unlimited opportunities for fun

Juggle between nature adventures and serious shopping, various sports activities and urban café life – all in one day. Spring, summer and autumn in Oslo is an action-packed feast, whilst winter is filled with activities fit for families and friends.

Winter in Oslo

Combine the buzz and nightlife of the capital with skiing and loads of fresh air in the deepest of forests. The city’s parks are transformed into white wonderlands
where children play in the snow and enjoy toboggan runs. And do not be surprised if you see people go to work on skis in the very centre of the city.

Oslo Winter Park

The largest ski resort in the Oslo area lies just 30 minutes from the city centre and have slopes for children, beginners, and advanced skiers.

Nordmarka wilderness area

During winter there are more than 450 kilometres of prepared, red-marked ski trails in Nordmarka, and some of them are lit up in the evenings.

Holmenkollen ski museum & tower

A historic landmark in the Norwegian consciousness, Holmenkollen embodies more than a century of skiing competitions. Inside the ski jump, you’ll find the Holmenkollen Ski Museum.


Think reasons, not seasons

In spring, summer and autumn the city is well suited for walks or bicyles and the many public parks attract huge crowds whenever the sun comes out. The Oslofjord has great possibilities for swimming, sightseeing and island hopping, and the forests surrounding the city are popular hiking and biking destinations for locals.
