Oslo highlights by foot, combined with food-stops along our path


Join a guided walk through the almost 1000 years of history of Oslo. We'll pass important buldings like the Royal palace, the City Hall (the Nobel Peace Prize Award Ceremony), the Akershus fortress and our new Opera house. Listen to stories from the old days, and get a feeling of the Norwegian life today. Complete the experience with foodstops along our path, tasting food and beverage that is a part of the Norwegian cuisine now.

Itinerary

We'll start our walk on the Westside of Oslo, passing through our capitals most important buildings and areas. Our first foodstop will be at one of our most popular cafees, where you can try local coffee, tea or freshly squized juice together with a slice of muslibread with our famous brown goat cheese. Continuing on foot along the fiord we'll have our next stop on the roof of the Opera house - built like an iceberg coming up from the sea - where you can enjoy the view, while trying the typical norwegian chocolate and sodadrink we bring in our backpack when we hike in the mountains or go cross country skiing. From the central station a tram takes us until our last stop, which is the new Foodhall on the Eastside. Here you'll taste samples of different norwegian produced cheese, dry meat (from raindeer or mouse), smoked salmon or dry cod, homemade "flatbrød" and jam. The desert will be a very popular cranberry ice cream, if the place we visit have anything left in the freezer. . . Godt måltid :)

A Recent Review of this tour

Lene was an exceptional guide-she was friendly, knowledgeable,thoughtful and made our 5 hours a pleasurable time during which we learned much about Norway and Oslo. Since the tour was focused on foods of Norway she arranged for the preparation of a delightful platter of regional cheeses and sausages at a local food court with a knowledgeable foodie to discuss them with us. I highly recommend Lene to anyone who would like to spend a lighthearted 5 hours in Oslo with emphasis on food and culture.
