This magnificent capital city is often celebrated as offering the best quality of life to its citizens in the world and is often referred to as a thriving ‘global city’.

Oslo is a city which makes the most of its magnificent natural vistas and spectacular landscapes. From the Frogner Park with its large collection of Vigeland sculptures to the Bygdøy, an abundance of green space in the most expensive and desirable neighbourhood of the city, there is a huge variety of public parks in which to relax in and admire. During warmer summer months there is the option of swimming in any one of the 8 public pools and the city is also surrounded by dense, untouched forest for walks or bike rides in the great outdoors.
Aker Brygge is Norway’s most popular destination for dining, shopping and entertainment.
