Green Oslo

In Oslo, the contrast between the creative, trend-seeking city and the lushly beautiful and relaxing archipelago makes the city unique.

In Oslo, one of Europe`s most green cities, you will find a well-developed eco-friendly public transport system which means room for a lot of parks, pedestrian zones, bicycle paths.


The Archipelago in Oslo Fjord

Why not take a ferry and go island hopping between the islands in the Oslo Fjord. With a regular public transportation ticket or an Oslo Pass, you will have the option easily to get on and off.

In the summer the islands are popular places to go swimming, but each island has its unique character and history worth exploring. A good idea to bring a picnic basket and a blanket and enjoy the peace and quiet just minutes away from the city centre.


Biking in Oslo

In the summer biking can be a very good idea related to sightseeing because of the small distance.  Whether you want to discover attractions, explore nature, or just get a little exercise, Oslo's bicycling options range from relaxing rides with almost no inclines to difficult cross-country cycling in the hilly forests around the city.

The options for getting a bike are huge. The easiest way to hire a bicycle in Oslo is getting a City Bike card from Oslo Bysykkel. An annual subscription gets you access to over 100 bicycle stands around the city with over 1,000 bicycles that can be borrowed for three hours at a time.


Ecological food in Oslo

In Oslo, you can find cafés and restaurants using ecological ingredients. The selection of eateries that base their foods on these ingredients varied from reasonable cafés to the gourmet restaurant Maaemo, which received two stars in the 2012 Guide Michelin.


Try a boat or kayak in Oslo Fjord

The Oslo Fjord and the Oslo region’s many lakes invite you to jump right in, rent a boat, paddling in kayaks or canoes or play on the beach. Options for summer fun also include a trip with Skibladner, the world’s oldest paddle steamer still in use, and island hopping by public ferry.

And psst – the archipelago or a wooden jetty are perfect spots to enjoy those long, light summer nights.
