Fly to Oslo

If you're looking for a trip filled with Nordic history and culture, then Oslo, Norway, is where you should plan your next vacation. There are museums, art galleries and the city itself has a very vibrant nightlife.

While you're there, you can also take scenic tours through one of the many parks or the Royal Palace.

At the Viking Ship Museum, you'll be able to see ships like the Sandefjord and the Tune. There is also the Norwegian Museum of Natural History, which is filled with artifacts from the 1500s to the present time.

For a better look at modern art from the area, you can take a trip to the Vigeland Museum. The exhibits are updated on a regular basis and the Frogner Park is within walking distance.

You can also find a variety of bars and nightclubs where you can have a drink and dance near Tordenskiolds Gate.
Hints and tips

When you fly to Oslo, you'll land at Oslo Airport (OSL) near Gardermoen. The airport is located roughly 30 miles from the city, but you can hop on the train at the airport, which runs every 20 minutes.

Be sure to pack warm clothes for your trip because even in the winter months the temperature only reaches about 64 degrees during the day.

Oslo When to Go

Norway may lie on the northern edge of Europe, but its capital city is not as cold as one might think thanks to the Gulf Stream, which brings warm air across the Atlantic. Summers are remarkably pleasant (in the mid-60s and an average of 70 in July), and there’s plenty to do in a municipality that stretches over 174 square miles of streets, forests, and agricultural land.

On summer afternoons, picnickers fill the parks, locals cram into the sidewalk cafes, and small boats jostle along the Oslo Fjord. During heat waves temperatures can hit the 90s. Around the solstice the sun doesn’t set until after 11 p.m., offering luxuriously long days for exploration. August also hosts major festivals, like the outdoor Oya Festival of music, the largest of its kind in Norway.

Winter is also a popular time to visit, and temperatures are not as frigid as one might expect: averages are between 24 and 33 degrees. After the holidays, snowfall is reliable, and Oslo makes a good, affordable base for alpine and Nordic skiing, accessible right in the city itself and in the surrounding mountains. Though February is a peak month for snow seekers, it could hardly be called crowded. Outside of the city in winter, visitors are occasionally treated to the great northern lights.
