Bike Tour: Oslo's Urban Treasures

With a compact city centre, Oslo is perfect for getting around by bike! You can cover a great distance and at the same time, enjoy all there is to see. And that’s what we plan to do. We'll give you Oslo's Urban Treasures by Bike in three hours so you can say, “This is my favourite part of Oslo” or “I want to go back there!” Starting from the city centre, we head for the roots of Oslo, East Oslo. The Old Town of Oslo, Game Oslo, is mainly comprised of ruins from a long time ago. A three-day fire raged through what was the city then and gave us the city we have today (a few kilometres away). On the way, we’ll pay our respects to the Oslo Opera House, the gateway to the old town. From ruins to riverside, we ride through the areas Kampen and Tøyen before reaching the water and continuing to the hip district of Grüneløkka, where you’ll no doubt want to return back to later and explore further. Cool cafés, slick street art, and thriving nightlife, what’s not to love? Riding from one suburb to the next, it’s time for a royal treat – The Royal Palace. Home of the King and Queen of Norway, we can’t complete a visit to Oslo without saying hello. From the hilltop, we get a great view of the city centre – perfect on a warm sunny day (we hope sunny!). Back to the city centre, we’ll take to the waterside again, this time along the Oslo Fjord and to the harbour, with a view of Akershus Fortress and the Oslo City Hall.   From the harbour, it’s not far to go before we’ve reached the end of our bike tour, by which time you can say you’ve seen Oslo's Urban Treasures from the comfort of your bike. Oh! We'll, of course, have made a stop along the way to stretch our legs and grab a snack. Please note: We will be biking on flat surfaces as well as on a few hills. The beginning of the route is uphill for the most part. The reward is a long ride downhill once past Kampen. We recommend bringing a bottle of water with you on the tour.   PRICE (Includes: Guide) Adult: 400 Norwegian Kroner Private Groups: Please contact us at info@vikingbikingoslo.com for rates   AVAILIABILITY May 1 - September 30 Thursday & Friday: 09:30 AM   No Tours: April 20, May 17   Additional Information:   Meeting Point: Viking Biking ; Nedre Slottsgate 4 Includes: Guide Bike Helmet   Cancellation Policy Refunds Public Tours up to 72 hours before departure
