Accommodation in Oslo
The astounding beauty of Oslo
Oslo is a capital city for those that appreciate beauty. From the ice-blue waters of the Oslo Fjord to the snow capped peaks of the surrounding forests of Oslo Marka, mother nature shows off her best angles. Amidst it all, traditional wooden houses blend with ultra-modern design throughout the city, providing travellers with a varied selection of beautiful sights.
Accommodation that celebrates the abundance of beauty in Oslo is easy to find. The Clarion Collection Gabelshus is a beautiful 3.5-star historic hotel within close proximity to the scenic shores of Bygdoy Peninsula. Alternatively, the sleek and modern Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, Oslo is less than a kilometre from the verdant forests of Oslo Marka.
Family fun in Oslo
Oslo is a great family-friendly destination. The city centre is compact and easy to travel in groups of all sizes. There is also a fantastic variety of activities to keep children and adults entertained. You may want to consider a trip to International Museum of Children's Art, or get outdoors at the Oslo Summer Park.
Fun for all is further enhanced by a handful of hotels that cater to the needs of families. Both independent and international establishments are available. This includes the Radisson Blu Hotel Oslo Alna, which provides modern style and such amenities as a fitness centre and children activities.
Just outside of Oslo
If you want to wander outside of the city's boundaries, the variety and beauty of this region will not disappoint. Try your hand at fresh water fishing, or consider a visit to the Fetsund Lenser lumber museum. Venture away from the city a bit further and you'll find the Hadeland Glassworks and Fredrikstad's Old Town.
It's easy to stay in Oslo and plan for a day of excursions to discover the gems outside the city. Alternatively, an overnight stay outside of Oslo is entirely possible with such hotels as the Best Western Fagerborg is just 20 minutes from the lumber museum, while the Hotel Valhalla B&B sits at the heart of Fredrikstad.
