Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in central Oslo at 2pm, then set off through the city streets to begin your 2-hour walking tour.

    Stroll along the banks of the Akerselva River with your guide and gain insight into Norway’s industrialisation. Discover pretty parks and winding nature trails, and see historic factory buildings now converted into bustling cafés and galleries.

    During your tour, visit a local eatery and perhaps stop for a snack along the way (own expense). After two hours of exploring, your tour will come to an end in central Oslo.

    I had a wonderful tour today with Erlend which turned out to be a private tour! He didn’t spare any details and interesting facts and he showed me the great river and told me about its history, and gave me tips for my time in Oslo! I hope to also attend the City of Contrasts

    We spent a nice afternoon walking around the riverside. The guide told us the history of some of the most famous bridges and from the ancient Oslo. The experience was fantastic because of the tour and because of the great company of the guide, she is super kind!!

    Dear Robert B, Happy New Year and thank you for giving us a perfect rating! We are very happy to hear that you found this tour to be both interesting and fun and will certainly share this great review with our guide Erlend. The historic River Walk is one out of three different city walks that we offer all year. And this particular tour is as you point out an interesting alternative walk in Oslo, while the other two tours - the "City of Contrasts" and "Oslo City Highlights" - cover many of the main attractions. Thank you again! We look forward seeing you on your next Oslo visit. Best regards, Stefanie Tuma Marketing Manager Oslo Guidebureau
