What to expect
Meet your guide and travel companions in central Oslo and, after a short safety briefing, pick out your bicycle and climb aboard. Pedal down Karl Johans gate, Oslo's main city street, past the yellow-brick parliament building (Storting) and 19th-century National Theatre before weaving your way down old cobblestoned streets toward the old shipyards of Aker Bygge to admire the harbor views. Continuing onward, you'll cruise past neoclassical buildings with vibrantly decorated facades before coming across the Renaissance fortress of Akershus Castle. Enjoy a refreshing drink here (at own expense) before carrying on toward the Royal Palace, the official residence of Norway's king. Next, take a look at the intricate murals inside Oslo City Hall, as well as the room in which the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded each year. After pedaling to Frognerparken, you have some free time to take in the sights and leisurely vibe of Oslo's biggest public park, loved by locals, and to check out the numerous open-air sculptures by Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland. Refreshed, you'll then pedal back to your original departure point in central Oslo where your tour ends.

See the sights in just a few hours
Apr 2020
This was a really lovely way to catch the highlights of Oslo and is one of my favourite memories from my time there! It was the quiet season in Oslo in January 2020 before the pandemic got bad - I was glad they were open for tours at that time!

So much fun cycling around Oslo!
Apr 2020
Our family group of four, including a 9-year old, loved viewing Oslo through Viking Biking. We had the pleasure of biking around, by the harbor, to the palace, to the city hall, and more, with a knowledgeable and entertaining guide. We appreciated the time we were given to explore on our own. The cycling was low-key, though we did have to dodge people (in that pre-pandemic summer; I couldn't enter the correct date). We hope many others get to enjoy this opportunity in the summer of 2021. Here's to a return to Norway!

Hi Leo, Thank you for the nice review of a fun tour pre-pandemic. We really appreciate the kind words, especially during these quiet times. I am especially happy when families give us nice feedback, since I have three children of my own, including an 8-year old. So a family-friendly tour is of course very important! Best regards, Curtis

Awesome intro to Oslo!
Aug 2020
Our small group biking tour of Oslo was such a wonderful introduction to the city! I love to do biking tours during a first visit to a city, and Viking Biking let us travel extensively around the city, checking out different neighborhoods and learning hidden details about the local history and culture. Oslo is such a bike- and pedestrian-friendly place, and the Viking Biking team helped us feel safe and comfortable, and showed us a great time!

Thank you for the kind words, and we are especially happy when customers mention that they felt safe and comfortable. Part of the advantage of a guided bike tour is that the participants don't need to think about the traffic rules and other concerns but can relax and know the guide will lead them safely around the city. We really appreciate that you took the time to leave this nice review! Best regards, Curtis

Thank you Jamie for this nice review. During these quiet times of Covid, we especially appreciate the positive feed-back from customers we had before the shut-down. It is great you had such a good time on tour and we can't wait for our first post-Covid tour later this year. Best regards, Curtis

Great 3hour tour with Curtis who made it interesting, informative & fun. Stops along the way to explore where we were with tips on best views, best angles, best area to go which made the most of the time we had at each stop. Plenty of bike riding at a steady pace on good roads/tracks. Highly recommended - we had a really good time - thanks!!

Great way to see the city!

My sister, cousin and I were backpacking around Norway and obviously wanted to stop in Oslo. This bike tour was a great way to see the city and cover a lot of ground in a short period of time. It was really informative and really cool to see the historic and iconic places on Oslo!
