August Trip 2 for Holiday Season - Oslo Social weekend !
Let's get together in Oslo!
Join me for a sociable long weekend in Oslo, Norway !
Oslo is one of very few places you can go for a city break and come back feeling like you’ve been to a spa. A small, compact city, Oslo has as much opportunity to ski as it does to shop, and, as befits the home of the Nobel Peace Prize, it is as calm and civilised a place as you could ever wish for.
It’s a mere 90 minutes away by plane and if you time it right, you can find Protected content . It’s also known for being one of Europe’s most expensive cities, but fear not – if you’re looking for relaxation, fresh air, and plenty of pastries, there’s no need to blow the budget.
You can take the metro (the T-Bane) just a few stops out of the city (included in your Zone 1-equivalent travel card) and find yourself at the top of a mountain. If the weather is fine, the views are second to none, and the low sun makes sunsets last entire afternoons. The Holmenkollen ski jump is a pretty spectacular site, and has an adjoining ski museum and a gift shop selling all manner of Norwegian goodies.
The Opera house is not to be missed even if you’re not catching a performance. Rising glacier-like from the fjord, the building is designed to be walked all over and offers spectacular views out over the water and some seriously good Instagram fodder. For some architecture of a completely different ilk, make like a Viking and visit Akershus, a fortress whose walls are equally available to clamber all over.
Frogner is an upscale neighbourhood that makes for great wandering (stop at pizza restaurant Villa Paradiso or coffee shop W.B. Samson to refuel), but its highlight is the Vigeland Sculpture Park. With over Protected content to take in, it’s a lovely way to while away an afternoon – don’t miss the famous “screaming baby.”
For a dose of education, visit the Norwegian Folk Museum, a short bus ride away from the city centre. For a small fee of Protected content (about £10), you can experience life in Norway through the ages, with Protected content houses from all parts of Norway, as well as horse and carriage rides and handicraft displays during the summer months.
