Full description
Stroll through the streets of Olso and see snow-covered pavements, wooden stands from which the good smell of hot drinks emanates, and trolls and elves proudly standing on the sidewalks and in many stores. Everything here is made to forget the darkness of the days and to live the Christmas season with a true and contagious feeling of joy.

During this tour, you will live the Norwegian Christmas experience to the fullest. Learn why the Norwegians are historically divided when answering the question: "What is the traditional Norwegian Christmas dinner?”. Discover the very local concepts of “lille Julaften” and “romjulen”, along with the famous Scandinavian tradition of “Julebord”.

Enjoy a cosy promenade through streets filled with lights and decorations and taste some of Norway’s typical winter drink, gløgg (mulled wine). A stone’s throw from the Royal Palace, you will also visit Oslo’s finest Christmas market with its famous outdoor ice skating rink.
