Enjoy the season in stress-free urban surroundings close to nature.
You may already have seen the viral video of New Zealanders Sam and Marela being rescued from an overcrowded Louvre and transported to the far quieter bliss of the Norwegian capital.
After quite some time in relative culinary obscurity, the success of the New Nordic Cuisine has increasingly put Norwegian food and commodities on the global foodie map. As a result, restaurants all over the country have stepped their game up, with great eating opportunities seemingly around every corner.
There’s no escaping the weather in Norway – not even in the larger cities. The temperature and weather conditions may change relatively fast during the season, from the final bursts of summer to equally windy and rainy days (and snowfall closer to Christmas). The crispness of the air, especially in the evenings, make for an invigorating experience.
And of course: If the weather gods should act in particularly unforgiving ways, there’s always the opportunity to watch it comfortably from the Great Indoors.
Speaking of indoor activities: As the summer festivals turn into fading memories, various music venues, theatres and galleries come to life once again after hibernating through the sunny season.
Oslo has been considered among the greatest concert cities in Northern Europe for quite a while, and several other Norwegian cities are following its lead. Film, food, literature, theatre and other cultural expressions are being celebrated as well, with an abundance of festivals throughout the fall.
