Private Bike Tour: Oslo Highlights

Our most popular tour, visiting most of the major sites in about 3 hours in a fun and relaxed manner as we bike car-free paths, parks, quiet back streets, and along the fjord. There is plenty of time for stops and pictures. The guides will not only reveal the history behind the monuments and buildings, but cover topics relating to Norwegian culture and politics as well as modern life in Oslo.

PRICE

* 1-8 participants: 4000 kroner
* A shorter 2-hour version is available for 3000 kroner, during which there is no time to stop at the old fortress "Akershus Festning" and instead of two stops along the Oslofjord, there is only one.
* For groups of more than 8 participants, please contact us directly on "info@vikingbiking.com"
