After a long and dark winter we norwegians embrace the summer. Maybe more so than others. The second the sun returns and the snow slowly melts away, we take full advantage of the long awaited season.

walk along akerselva

Take a walk along the river Akerselva on a sunny day, and you will experience some of Oslo’s variety. If you start at Grønland, the first part is honestly quit dirty and city-like. As you walk further, you will see more nature mixing in with the city; rushing waterfalls, green areas perfect for picnics, charmy wooden houses as well as a couple of cafes and dining places.
It is a 8-9 kilometres walk from Grønland up to Maridalsvannet. You might prefer to take the subway to Nydalen or the tram to Kjelsås, and then walk downstream from there.


There are not too many skate spots in Oslo, but there are a few: Here you can find information about every single spot there is in Oslo. If you have trouble understanding the page, we will help you at the office. You should also drop by the various skate shops around Oslo.

the oslo fjord

Oslo is located around the Oslo Fjord. Actually, it looks more like a bay than a fjord but that is just the way it is. There is lots of stuff to do here, especially in the summertime. When the weather is nice locals flock to the beaches on the islands and around the fjord.

The water in the inner Oslo Fjord is clean and usually keeps 15-20°C during summer. Swimming in the fjord is definitely a summer activity, but visiting the islands and other fjord areas are nevertheless recommended throughout the year.
