Full description
Imagine lamps glittering over snow-covered pavements, the spiced smell of hot drinks drifting in the air from nearby market stalls, stores decorated with cheerful holiday decorations and candles on many windows and tables. Welcome to Oslo during the holiday season. Forget the long, dark, wintry days and live the Christmas season with a genuine, infectious feeling of joy! It's the epitome of the word “cozy”.

During this tour, join your very own local guide on a quest to soak in the Norwegian Christmas and holiday spirit. Learn about what the traditional Norwegian Christmas dinner includes and why the country is divided on the answer. Discover the concepts of “lille Julaften,” “romjulen”, and "Julebord," the latter is also popular across Scandinavia during the holidays. Stroll through the cozy inner-city streets filled with beautiful decorations that you will want to take plenty of photos of, topping it off with some local flavor. Warm yourself up from the inside out with a sample of Norway’s typical wintertime drink called gløgg (mulled wine).

After visiting the quaint market stalls at Oslo's finest Christmas market, with its famous outdoor ice skating rink, journey up to the Royal Palace, concluding your tour with stories of how the Royals celebrate the holidays. This tour will leave you busting with Oslo's Christmas spirit!
