Experience the urban buzz and the tranquil wilderness on your city break in Oslo
The beauty of an Oslo city break can be found in its stark contrasts. On the one hand, you can soak up all the excitement that a capital city has to offer. Oslo is no stranger to chic cafes, buzzing bars, galleries, restaurants and boutiques. Yet, just a short boat trip away, lies real wilderness. And on a bespoke Oslo holiday with A&K, you can enjoy the best of both worlds.
Oslo’s Viking Ship Museum is where you can to find out about the legendary seafarers of Scandinavia. Polar explorers, another important part of Norway’s heritage, set out their stall at the Fram. In the National Gallery and Munch Museum the works of The Scream painter Edvard Munch take centre stage.
When you’ve had your fill of city life, you could head inland to the Jotunheimen National Park to admire the mountains. Here you’ll find Norway’s highest peak on Galdhøpiggen and lurking glaciers tower over shimmering lakes.
Norwegians love the outdoor life, and you can join them by heading to the islands dotted around the Oslo Fjord. Spice up your Oslo holiday with a spot of wild swimming at Hovedøya.
And then head back to the city for a gourmet meal. You deserve it.
