Flights to Oslo
Oslo, the capital of Norway, is surrounded by beautiful landscapes and is just the right size for a city break. There’s a lot to do in the city whether you’re interested in culture, food, rock concerts or parties that last until the morning. If you have time, you should definitely take a trip outside the city – the fjords of Norway are well-known for their beauty.
The Viking Ship Museum will take you back to the days when Viking ships sailed the Scandinavian seas. The three ships found near Oslo – the Oseberg, Gokstad and Tune – are some of the coolest exhibits in the museum. The first is considered the most beautiful.
The Edvard Munch Museum, dedicated to one of the most famous Norwegian artists, is also located in Oslo. His painting The Scream is one of the most famous works of art in the world. There is a separate exhibition in the basement of the museum that gives an overview of the tragic life of the notorious artist.
As we all know, the roots of the movie Kon-Tiki, which made waves on cinema screens, are in Norway. The museum dedicated to this famous expedition and raft is located in Oslo and gives an overview of the life, ideas and adventures of explorer Thor Heyerdahl. As the museum is not far from the Viking Ship Museum, it’s easy to visit them both in one go.
People say that Maaemo is one of the best restaurants in Oslo. Everything that comes out of its kitchen is made from 100% organic ingredients, which are sourced from within a radius of 100 km. It’s also worth mentioning that the restaurant has two Michelin stars.

People often get a bit peckish when walking around the city. When this happens, we recommend popping into the nearest Aspent Baker. The cinnamon rolls made by their bakers are said to be truly delicious!
