We signed up for the hipster tour of Oslo. Diana was our tour guide and she was fantastic. This tour takes you to Grünerløkka. There is some great street art, but what really made the tour was Diana's knowledge of the area and its history. It was interesting to see a less touristy side of Oslo. We enjoyed our morning tour so much that we signed up to take her afternoon city tour. Again, her knowledge of the city's history made it really interesting. After these tours, we felt like we had a good understanding of the city's development and layout. Our first tour was just me and the two friends with whom I traveled; the second included four others. So, a nice size and easy to hear and ask questions.

Description

Imagine a river, surrounded by old industrial buildings and parklands. You can almost hear the sounds of the factories well at work, mixed in with the splashing of the river as you stroll along the path. The colourful residential area unexpectedly brightens the mood with the colour palette on display, even on a cloudy day (you’re in the north after all!). You stumble across a giant chandelier, where around the corner hides a collection of old wooden houses from the 1800s and facades covered in street art. Where in Oslo do you find yourself? You’re in the district of Grünerløkka, Oslo’s trendy and bohemian inner-city neighbourhood, on our Hipstoric Grünerløkka Walk!

During your exploration, where there is plenty of hipster vibes and history to go around (aka hipstoric), we’ll dig into one of our favourite parts of Oslo. We climb up the quaint street of Damstredet, where you’ll definitely want to stop to take a photo of the charming hillside houses. We also check in with the dynamic trio: Ibsen, Bjørnson and… (care to wager a guess?), at the Our Savior’s Cemetery.
Feel the artistic vibrations in the air and prepare for a cultural injection! This is our take on Hipstoric Grünerløkka!

Best way to know Oslo in a short time
I took the tour with LINA on 25th Nov and I simply loved it. She was knowledgeable, professional and very friendly. She introduced us to Oslo like a local showing us the common and the hidden. Tasting brown cheese was very interesting and I walked away with great pictures and amazing stories about Oslo. Highly recommended. kuddos to Lina.

A great way to see Oslo
My friend and I were only in Oslo for a day and wanted to see as much as possible in a short amount of time. Our guide Daiana was great, her knowledge on the city was immense and she conveyed it in an interesting way that was easy to follow. We covered most of the main sights and each was explained concisely. The tour flowed well and we began to get our bearings. We also tried some of the local foods and were given recommendations of where else to visit and what else was on in the city. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Oslo.

Perfect tour to see the best of Oslo
I really enjoyed this tour, I was lucky to be the only person on the tour so I had the privilege of being able to ask many questions to my guide who was very smart and knowledgeable. The tours covers the main attractions in 3 hours including the beautiful Vigeland park.
Totally recommend it.
