Where to Stay in Oslo
Although far from an inexpensive place to visit, the Norwegian capital of Oslo is a popular tourist destination not only with skiers visiting the country’s slopes but also with those with an eye for a progressive and interesting 21st century city.
Accommodation choices are plentiful with everything from budget priced hostels to five-star luxury hotels that act as temporary homes for everyone from rock stars to royalty. Visitors who take a stroll along the modern waterfront with its funky bars and cafes as well as the multi-million dollar boats might even just bump into one or two.
Oslo also offers some of the easiest and most convenient public transportation options in Scandinavia, while it is also an ideal place to walk around or to discover by bicycle. One of the most popular transport methods is to purchase the ‘Oslo Pass’, which allows public transport within the city Zones 1 and 2 as well as the ferry to Bygdøy museums. The Oslo Pass is on sale at various outlets such as the Oslo Visitor Center and several hotels, campsites and hostels.
For those without an Oslo Pass, all public transport in Oslo and the surrounding county of Akerhus is part of the same ticket and price system through the operating company Ruter and includes buses, trams, subways and local trains. Alternatively, renting a car in Oslo is also an option.

Oslo is the capital of Norway. We start our city tour with entrance to Vigeland Park, the Viking Ship Museum, Aker Brygge, Oslo City Hall and Holmenkollen area.
It is a beautiful place, but with one day you will have enough to see the whole thing.
