What you'll do

Discover a culinary culture based on the eating habits of Nor-Vikings (with a modern twist) bite by bite through the cozy capital, liking titillating your tastebuds with freshly cooked prawns straight from a fishermen's boat, or savoring a bite of smoked pink salmon unlike any other in the world. Head to a neighborhood joint for kjøttboller meatballs swimming in brown gravy and cabbage, and sink your teeth into traditional pickled herring. Sample some small potato balls sizzled in pork stock or try a festive cod dish that dates back to the 16th century. Treat your sweet tooth to thin waffles adorned with cream wallops and rare orange cloudberries, exclusive to Scandinavia. Cheers the day with a glass of the spirit of Scandinavia, potato-based aquavit — Skål!

Where you’ll go

Wander along a culinary footpath molded by medieval eating habits on a foodie adventure tailored to your tastebuds, like grabbing sizzling prawns straight from a fisherman at sparkling portside Oslo, or heading to tiny eatery Fiskeriet Youngstorget for the best salmon in town. Old-school Restaurant Schrøder, teaming with locals, awaits with delicious Oslovian meatballs and charming street views, then dart to nearby café Kaffistova that has been serving traditional food for a century. Travel along flower-lined streets to no-frills Heralds Vaffel, where knives and forks aren't an option and taste trumps all, before retiring to hipster neighborhood Grünerløkka, sprinkled with trendy eateries and artsy folk, for a glass of Scandinavian vodka and hearty fårikål stew. 

    • Try 6-8 traditional Norwegian dishes on a culinary path paved by the habits of Vikings, influenced by the Oslovian love for fine dining.
    • Chat to a fisherman about his catch of the day, while trying freshly cooked prawn in harbor-side Oslo.
