The city center is relatively flat with only a few small inclines and hills, making it accessible for nearly everyone. Further out along the Bygdøy peninsula's coastline or up in the Oslo forest (called the marka), there are more hills and much of the riding can be on dirt paths. There is basically something for everyone, ranging from easy to challenging.



18 May- 31 October: every day, seven days per week, from 9:30-18:00. Advanced booking recommended (but not required) on weekends and during the summer months.

November-March: open based on weather and riding conditions. Please contact us in advance for availability.


Customized bike map, rain ponchos and water available for purchase and pump/repair kits available for rental in the Viking Biking shop: 25 kroner each.
