Description

From the wild islands of Lofoten to the heart of Oslo’s downtown, Norwegians sure know how to enjoy a good beer - and with good reason! More than a refreshing drink, beer is for them a national beverage that one needs to treat (and taste!) with respect…

Our Oslo Craft Beers & Bites tasting adventure takes place in and around Grünerløkka, the art-loving and colourful district where - what a coincidence! - Oslo’s very first brewery was founded, back at the beginning of the 1800s. Along with our guide (who doubles as a beer enthusiast), we will embark on a journey that will take us to two different microbreweries. Whilst enjoying and discussing some of the best “øl” offered by Norway’s capital city, we’ll learn exciting facts about the art of brewing in the country. Our tour will teach us how beer production flourished during the Middle Ages, becoming - already back then! - the favourite drink of the Norwegians. Learn how the beer heritage got affected by the appearance of liquors and how the religious authorities tried, often in vain, to limit the consumption of the inhabitants.

Join us on a joyful and tasty promenade through some of the prettiest streets of Oslo.

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.
