What you'll do

Oslovian's will think you're a local, as you wander off the beaten track to hidden gems with your in-the-know host, like darting past the crowded palace to a treasure trove of miniature glass bottles and skipping Gustav Vigeland's park to see the work of his lesser-known brother in a moody Mausoleum. Stroll away from the famous Karl Johans street to tucked-away tiny nook Torggata, cramped with cozy cafés and trendy stores, perfect for a colorful photo op. On the other side of a Viking-like fortress, discover a too-cool-for-school food truck court with a dash of sustainability, nestled on the edge of the Oslo fjord. Nearby nabolag Tøyen may be famous for the Munch Museum, but underneath its suburban facade lies a bursting street art scene.

Where you’ll go

Who needs a guidebook when you have a street-smart local guiding you away from the tourist crowds to hidden gems of the capital, like the weird but wonderful Mini Bottle Gallery? Pass an array of venues to the rockers on your way to tiny street Torgotta in the heart of the city, lined with pastel-colored buildings and teeming with pedestrians and cyclists heading to their favorite cafés — your host knows just the spot to try later. Pass by the medieval Akershus Fortress as you make your way to the port for a look at trendy foodie haven Vippa Oslo, perched on the edge of the lapping fjord. Next, dart away to urban burro Tøyen, where art doesn't only hang in galleries but is plastered on everything from streets and buildings to nooks in hidden alleyways.

    • Ditch the guidebook for a host who knows a shortcut to all the capital's hidden gems.
    • Leave the tourists behind in Karl Johans Gate as you meander along a picturesque nook sprinkled with cafés and that famous Norwegian charm.
    • Discover quirky eateries that locals love to try on the rest of your trip.
    • Grab your camera: you won't want to forget the thought-provoking, larger-than-life art plastered on the streets of the Tøyen nabolag (neighborhood)
