Yet another classic panoramic view of the city can be found at Aksla Stadium. It’s about 400 steps up and starts from the Town Park. That may feel a bit strenuous, so you can also use transport to get there. You will find additional hiking opportunities once you are on the top.
Fjellstua is an absolutely stunning place to enjoy vast, sweeping views of the fjord, islands, mountains and beautiful town of Ålesund below.

The Flåm Railway, Flamsbana is often touted by travel brochures as one of the greatest railway journeys in the world, and while you may be inclined to write this off as a mere advertising pitch, it really does live up to this claim. The ride from Myrdal down into Flam is only an hour long, yet it’s absolutely thrilling with some of the most amazing landscapes you could have ever seen.

A former shipyard and a great leisure destination today, Aker Brygge is a magnet for tourists and locals alike, with over 60 shops and 30 restaurants offering top brand names and fine food.

The Essential Oslo walking tour
Walking Tour: Oslo transformed
The best view in Oslo is right at the top of the ski jumping tower, Holmenkollen. From there, you have a chance to enjoy the same views and sensation of speed as the ski jumpers do! The zipline takes you from the very top of the Holmenkollen jumping tower to the bottom, as if you were jumping on skis. The line itself is 361 metres / 1185 feet long and the difference in altitude is 107 metres / 351 feet. There is no age limit – the oldest jumper is 93 and the youngest only 3! Children under 40 kg may jump in tandem with an adult.
Recommended between April and October
