Discover a Winter Wonderland

Oslo’s Only Winter Bike Tour

For the Adventurous

Cycle on Snow & Ice in this Unforgettable Winter Experience

Oslo winter tours have a special kind of magic and require a touch of Viking courage from the guests! Cycling with studded tires (like ours) is safer than walking as you have more grip. You’ll visit Oslo’s main sights with a guide who will share information about Norway’s culture, politics, and everyday life. We mix nature with architecture and history – in season we can even visit the famous Christmas markets. If you want to go beyond the guidebook, this is the tour for you!

Admire the stunning modern Opera House and The City Hall, home to the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony

Ride down car-free Akerselva River path to waterfalls & explore street art in Oslo's most alternative neighbourhood

The Day’s Activities

Depending on the weather we have a range of activities to choose from. We’ll discover Norway’s spectacular architecture, both modern and 19th-century, as we ride past areas like the harbourfront, Karl Johans Gate, and the port area of Aker Brygge and Tjuvholmen.

Depending on the time of year, we may visit Oslo’s Christmas market, Jul i Vinterland, where we’ll sample cured meats, traditional shortbread, and Gløgg (mulled wine). We’ll also take you into real Oslo and explore neighbourhoods like Grünerløkka. This Oslo bike tour is all about getting to know more about Norwegian society and your guide will give you insight that no guidebook can.

We’ll explore the natural side of this green city as we pedal up the car-free Akerselva River path to visit waterfalls that are pretty spectacular in winter. For foodies, we can stop by one of the many indoor food markets where we can enjoy fresh seafood and a delicious array of street food in beautiful settings.
