Know More about this tour

One of Europes largest capital cities, Oslo also has one of the smallest populations, meaning its city streets are less busy with countless opportunities for urban outdoor activities. Cycling is one of the best ways to get around, and youll do just that on your 3-hour afternoon bike tour.
Meet your friendly guide in the center of town, close to the main shopping street of Karl Johan's gate, and after listening to a comprehensive safety briefing, youll be on your way.
See Oslos National Theatre and yellow-brick parliament building on Karl Johan's gate before pedaling along century -old alleyways and winding lanes. Following your attentive guide at a leisurely pace, cruise along the cycle paths that surround Oslofjord before exploring Aker Brygge -- a popular old shipyard that boasts captivating views of the harbor.
Visit beautiful Neoclassical neighborhoods, full of brightly painted 18th- and 19th-century houses, and stop for drinks (own expense) at Akershus Castle, where you can admire its Renaissance architecture. Glide past the Royal Palace, home of the Norwegian royal family, and see Oslo City Hall where the annual Nobel Peace Prize ceremony takes place.
Frognerparken is a must-see while in Oslo, so youll enjoy a break here to explore this stunning park independently. Amble around the incredible open-air exhibition of bronze and granite sculptures by Norways much-acclaimed sculptor, Gustav Vigeland, or simply relax on the tranquil lawns.
After three hours of leisurely cycling, your guide will lead you back to your start point, where your tour ends.

    1 Would not have engaged with the vendor and would not recommend others doing so either

    PROS
    Josh I believe that was name, young man from Florida was a hoot - definitely know his story of Oslo and told it with humor
    Small group so it was very conversational
    Not a bad ride - with a little exertion but OK for novice bike riders
    Got to see some of Oslo that we would not have otherwise probably seen

    CONS
    None

  • Great way to see all of Oslo in a limited time. Fortunate to have weather without rain for the 2-5pm bike ride. Guide quite knowledgeable although could have been better. Having said that I would definitely do it again. Beware amateur cyclists and the not so fit that Oslo is not completely flat. Some parts are hilly so requires a certain level of fitness and ability to change gears. Also, other cyclists don't give way so you just have to watch out for each other whilst trraversing the city on tramlines, cobblestones busy streets, etc. Glad I partook in this tour.

  • What a great day to see a lovely City and what a great way to do it.
    Curtis was fun, knowledgeable and brought the city to life for us - sharing different perspectives in a joyful way.
    Thank you.

  • Good bike tour. Guide was from Florida, but can't remember his name. So english was good. I'd say the tour was very informative about Oslo and Norway in general. Lots of information I had not ever known. The sites were good and got to bike a lot of Oslo. Guide also had some nice local tips/insights on the landmarks we were able to visit. I wish it included the Opera House..but overall, it was still very much a good value and I would recommend.

  • We had a fabulous afternoon with Patrick peddling around the city. He brought the history of Oslo to life with his many stories. The group was the perfect size. I highly recommend spending some time seeing the city this way.

  • Great way to see the city certainly a different experience for me. I would recommend this for Oslo, as it's not really that big of a city. And since cyclists reign supreme on the streets here, I felt very safe.

  • Enjoyed this tour. Have to say initially it was disappointing to find that it wasn't a native doing this tour but our guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. Unfortunately his name escapes me, young American guide and he was enthusiastic and fun. Would recommend this tour.

  • This is without doubt the best way to see the sights of Oslo or any other city in fact. Our guide Patrick from Viking Biking was great and even in the pouring rain we had a truly memorable day.

  • We had not been on a cycle for 40 years so were a little apprehensive. Didn't need to worry, the guys in charge of the trip were excellent. Found us suitable bikes. Would suggest if you havn't been on a bike for a while you arrive 15 early so you can practise before the off. We saw places close up that we would not have seen. Thought it was an excellect tour. Really worth the price.

  • Fantastic guide taking us along all the interesting bits. Saw parts we would not otherwise have done . Oslo looked great in the sun
