Oslo Off the Beaten Path Private Bike TourBook this tour now
OSLO. 3hrs. On our Oslo Off the Beaten Path Private Bike Tour, we take a closer look at the boho-style neighbourhood of the city, Grünerløkka and the river and impressive waterfalls that run through it. Hop on your bike, it's time to go!
Mount your bike, we are off to explore alternative Oslo! On our Oslo Off the Beaten Path Private Bike Tour, we head for the Akerselva River, with its many waterfalls, and the Bohemian district of Grünerløkka. Imagine a morning cycling through lush green nature in the middle of a vibrant residential area - it's as lovely as it sounds!
We begin in central Oslo, and amongst the firsts stops we find the Oslo Opera House, marvel at the unusual Oslo landmark and the view of the Oslo Fjord before we continue around the bend to see new buildings and public areas popping up everywhere. One of the more modern districts of Oslo is Sørenga Beach, where, as the name indicates, you find a local swimming spot. If you are brave enough to dip your toes into the Oslo Fjord, we suggest you return at a later stage. From present-day Oslo to the city's historical roots, we steer our bikes towards Ruinparken and Gamlebyen, the old location of Oslo. That's right, the entire town was once moved. We'll explore Old Oslo before, we hop back on our bikes to check out the Akerselva River!
Biking up Akerselva River, the stream of water that divides Oslo in two, we'll see everything from mighty waterfalls, old industrial buildings, and facades covered in street art. We have entered the cool district of Grünerløkka, which was once the home of well-known artists such as Edvard Munch. To recharge our batteries before our return to the city centre, we'll make a stop at Mathallen, a famous food hall. Time flies when you are having fun, and before you know it we're heading back from the routes that took us off the beaten path, to the city centre again. We hope you return having enjoyed the morning just much as we have!
Please note: We will be biking on flat surfaces as well as on a few hills. We recommend bringing a bottle of water with you on the tour. Mathallen is closed on Mondays.
