With around a third of Norway’s population living in Greater Oslo, the city dominates culturally as well as politically. The city on the fjord, water is entwined into the fabric of the city with bathing beaches all along the waterfront, museums & theatre lining the fjord and commuters riding the ferries to the city from the islands. The waterfront of Oslo is stunning, iconic and expanding to the east.

Joining the historic Nobel Peace Centre and the Akershus Fortress on the fjord are the stunning recent additions of the Munch Museum and the National Opera House. Deep government pockets have been put to impressive use with these stunning structures. Life beneath them continues with beach bars, fjord swimming and floating saunas allowing residents and visitors alike to sample the incredible Oslo way of life.

The capital with the most open space globally, Olso is a joy to explore. The city is linked by a fantastic transport system, cycle paths and waterfront pedestrian routes. Olso is a fusion of old and new, with historic fortifications residing next to wonderful, modern architecture. New suburbs are springing up on the western side of the fjord, waterfront enclaves with steps to pontoons for swimming and water sports – a Nordic Venice!

Dining is a similar mix of new and old, with fusion cuisine bridging the gap between traditional Norwegian fayre and international cuisine, including south and east Asian dining. Heading out into the fjords, there are a series of islands, magical oases where the luckiest residents of Oslo call home. Attractions and entertainment can be customised here to cater for group events.

As well as numerous cycle lanes and a pedestrianised waterfront, Oslo is superbly connected by trams, trains and ferries. By the end of 2023 the city will be the first capital in the world to have a zero-emission public transport network.

As part of a wider sustainability programme, the decarbonisation of the network is a truly significant milestone and a benchmark for other cities – these visions are all achievable with investment. A point about the investment - it was reported that the tender for electric vehicles was some 5% lower than their diesel counterparts.

As with many things sustainable, the greening of the transport of the transport system is not just good for ECG reporting, the air quality is set to markedly improve whilst the noise of rumbling bus engines will be a distant memory.

These are no peripheral issues - clean air and calm atmosphere have a significant impact on our wellbeing, adding to the experience of locals and visitors.


As capital of Norway, Olso boasts the widest range of dining options in the country. Its southern location on the fjord ensure that seafood is widely consumed in the city. Influences from the north include reindeer, whilst there is a thriving microbeer industry as well as cider, made with west coast apples.

Locations include historic settings as well as modern, venues with themed dining possible for group events. Waterfront dining is hugely popular and can be combined with visits to the many attractions in this part of Oslo.

As an international city of global stature, Olso attracts residents and visitors from all over the world. The supply and demand for international cuisine has resulted in a wide range of dining options in Oslo. Large Indian and East Asian communities have developed numerous fantastic restaurants.

Olso is a truly multicultural city offering a varied and thriving nightlife scene. The nightlife powerhouse of the region, Oslo has a wonderful mix of indoor and outdoor nightlife. Bar, restaurant, and café terraces abound along the Oslo fjord.

The long summer days can be whiled away amongst the sights, sounds and atmosphere of the waterfront. Micro-breweries are numerous in Oslo, offering unique and sustainable brews to enjoy, whilst the city’s live music scene is vibrant.

Famously expensive alcohol in Norway is only part of the story. A beer might cost double the amount of one bought in a provincial European town, but if compared with French and Swiss resorts or other European capitals, the differences become far less stark.

And when combined with dining, the overall price is often very competitive with wining and dining in other parts of Europe – Norway dining is both high quality and surprisingly well priced.
