Full description
Join this walking tour full of sustainable inspiration and hidden gems. You will discover Oslo from different perspectives whilst learning why Oslo became one of the best cities in Europe. On your tour, you will be led through the vivid Bjørvika Quarter and see landmarks such as the Oslo Opera House, Sørenga, the Losæter Community Garden, the ruins of Old Oslo, and the most culturally diverse district, Grønland.  Your journey then continues along the Akerselva River, which offers a great escape from the rush of the capital and is the cradle of Oslo's underground culture. Later, your tour will finish in the Vulkan area, Oslo's so-called "sustainable laboratory." Here you will receive a guided traditional Norwegian food tasting which offers the unique possibility to try a broad selection of traditional Norwegian food, such as different type of cheeses, cured sausages, reindeer, whale, salmon, lingonberries, flatbread, and more. The tasting session is optional so if you are not interested in the experience, please choose the tour only option.

Great fun! Especially for those interested in architecture, new approaches to urbanism and community engagement. We learnt about the newest quarters of Oslo, waterfront regeneration and community projects as well as fast transforming trendy areas in the heart of the city. Definitely worth it, as many of the things we wouldn't have discovered just looking at the recommendations on the internet. The tour guide was super friendly and knowledgeable. After the tour, she sent us many links with further information on things we were interested in. Highly recommended at the beginning of your trip as you'll have more insight into the city with many more tips of places to visit!
