Description

Strolling through the streets of Oslo just a few days before Christmas is like finding a perfect illustration for the word “cosy”. Lamps glittering over snow-covered pavements, wooden stands from which the good smell of hot drinks emanates, trolls and elves proudly standing on the sidewalks and in many stores: everything here is made to forget the darkness of the days and to live the Christmas season with a true and contagious feeling of joy!

During our Oslo’s Christmas Spirit tour, you will live the Norwegian Christmas experience to the fullest. You will learn why the Norwegians are historically divided when answering the question: “what is THE traditional Norwegian Christmas dinner?”. You will discover the very local concepts of “lille Julaften” and “romjulen”, along with the famous Scandinavian tradition of “Julebord”. You will enjoy a cosy promenade through streets filled with lights and decorations and you will taste some of Norway’s typical winter drink, gløgg (mulled wine). A stone’s throw from the Royal Palace, you will also visit - of course! - Oslo’s finest Christmas market with its famous outdoor ice skating rink.

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.
