In spring, summer and autumn the city is well suited for walks or bicycles 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.
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.
Ten open-minded, but rather picky social media active people from all over the world flew in to check out what Oslove is all about. They got help from locals with insider vibes.
