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.

Fasten the seat belt of your sledge and join us for a real “Julestemning” experience!

Fabulous Tours of Oslo--so good we took two!
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.
