What You Can Expect

Small-Group Oslo Bike Tour: City Highlights

Norwegian Cathedral

One of Europe’s largest capital cities, Oslo also has one of the smallest populations, meaning its city streets are less busy with countless opportunities for urban outdoor activities. Cycling is one of the best ways to get around, and you’ll do just that on your 3-hour afternoon bike tour.

Meet your friendly guide in the center of town, close to the main shopping street of Karl Johan's gate, and after listening to a comprehensive safety briefing, you’ll be on your way.

See Oslo’s National Theatre and yellow-brick parliament building on Karl Johan's gate before pedaling along century -old alleyways and winding lanes. Following your attentive guide at a leisurely pace, cruise along the cycle paths that surround Oslofjord before exploring Aker Brygge -- a popular old shipyard that boasts captivating views of the harbor.

Visit beautiful Neoclassical neighborhoods, full of brightly painted 18th- and 19th-century houses, and stop for drinks (own expense) at Akershus Castle, where you can admire its Renaissance architecture. Glide past the Royal Palace, home of the Norwegian royal family, and see Oslo City Hall where the annual Nobel Peace Prize ceremony takes place.

Frognerparken is a must-see while in Oslo, so you’ll enjoy a break here to explore this stunning park independently. Amble around the incredible open-air exhibition of bronze and granite sculptures by Norway’s much-acclaimed sculptor, Gustav Vigeland, or simply relax on the tranquil lawns.

After three hours of leisurely cycling, your guide will lead you back to your start point, where your tour ends.

We were on an 11 day cruise and this was a highlight of all five of us who went, which ranged in age from 9 - 65. Our guide was informative, friendly, engaging, and I felt like I really got to know Oslo in a short period of time.

The weather cooperated to make this tour a great experience. The biking was manageable for children and us oldsters alike, Paul the guide was knowledgeable and fun, the route covered most major sites, and the end result was a wonderful tour!

Awesome way to experience Oslo. Guide was very enthusiastic and we had a great day cycling across the city. My mother who is over 70 was even able to make it through. There were a couple of challenging climbs but nothing too difficult.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Great way to see the city with a fun guide. The cycling is relatively easy, taken at a leisurely pace, with only a couple of inclines and the guide always made sure we were safe and together. Went to some places we wouldn't have gone to ourselves and went back to some of these the next day to explore further.

Great trip - thank you!

What a great opportunity for a day in Oslo! The tour was thorough and fun and we rode to places it would be hard to see all in one day. The leaders made sure that we not only saw and heard about important places in Oslo, they encouraged camaraderie among the group of riders. Rain dampened a bit of the tour at the last part, but leaders made sure everyone stayed safe riding on wet surfaces and we stopped for a while when it was a downpour.
This is a perfect and affordable activity for the traveler who has a limited time to see Oslo.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Highly recommended. Oslo is a beautiful city, and there is no better way to take in all in than with a bicycle. Add to that the expert commentary you will get from your guide, and you will have a fantastic and very memorable time.
