Full description
If you've ever dreamed of cycling Norwegian-style, on spiked tires specifically designed for winter, this bike tour is for you. Designed for experienced cyclists, the tour route is mostly flat, though you can expect a few short, steep hills. And you'll have plenty of time to stop and take pictures. The sites on the tour change based on the weather and the season, but you can expect to visit the Christmas market during the holiday season, as well as stop at Karl Johans Gate, the main pedestrian street in Oslo. Other possibilities on the itinerary: cycling along the port areas of Aker Brygge and Tjuvholmen, home to some of the city's best modern architecture and restaurants, a visit to the stunning Opera House (where you'll have time to explore inside and out), a stop at the Mathallen or Vippai indoor food markets, and/or a visit to City Hall, site of the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony.  Enjoy learning about the history behind the monuments and buildings, as well as Norwegian culture, politics, and modern life in Oslo from your experienced guide.

Josh was an amazing guide. Extremely upbeat, made the bike tour through admittedly awful weather (~0c and raining!) seem like a really fun time. He was full of anecdotes of Oslo both current and past - gave us a great feel for the city. I would definitely come back for another tour - in sunshine if possible!

Great fun!

This was my first time in Oslo and I thought the cycling tour would be a great way to see the city, what I didn't bargain on was the amount of snow! I turned out to be the only person on the tour as the weather was so bad and it's a fairly new activity so I essentially got a private tour! Josh from Viking Biking was really friendly and funny and knew his stuff about the city. He gave me pretty free rein about where I wanted to go and what I wanted to see. I even wanted a hot chocolate at one point so we went to a really cool food market. He was also really happy to take pics and stop whenever I wanted to admire the views! Highly recommend this activity, and don't worry about the snow, the winter tyres are really good - I was convinced I would fall off before we started but didn't!!!
