I really enjoy showing visitors not only Oslo's highlights - those must sees - but the "off the beaten path" sights as well. I can arrange themed walking tours, tours using public transportation, shore excursions, and also tours which provide private transportation. As an educator for many years in Norway, all of my tours can be personalized to meet any special interests you may have.
My background is both American and Norwegian. I came to Norway in the 1970s looking for my roots, which I found, and I fell in love with this country. In 1985, I settled here with my family. Oslo is an exciting, dynamic capital city which I know well but I have also travelled to all corners of this little country - on land and by sea!
I am particularly interested in showing Norwegian-North Americans the city of Oslo and helping those visitors learn more about the culture and history of not only the capital but of Norway, too. My personal experience growing up as a Norwegian-American, will enable me to help customize tours to those of you wanting to learn more about your heritage. My other tours focus on topics which I am particularly interested in. Take a look at my tours and see what interests you! Remember that all tours can be personalized.
After 25 years of teaching English at the high school/upper secondary level in and around Oslo, I am now a full-time tour guide. Therefore, I look forward to showing you Norway's capital city any time of the year.
Let me know how I may help you plan and experience the perfect visit to Oslo or surrounding areas!
