Small-Group Oslo Bike Tour: City Highlights
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, you’ll be on your way.
See Oslo’s 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 you’ll enjoy a break here to explore this stunning park independently. Amble around the incredible open-air exhibition of bronze and granite sculptures by Norway’s 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.

Marta did a great job providing us with historical information, fun facts, and guiding us thru the city Nicely done
We were given good bikes (with baskets on back), and our tour leader - can’t recall her name, but she was excellent, explained the bikes, the street cycling etiquette, (basically none, you can go anywhere) and took us on a 3 hour journey which included many highlights. The sculpture park was amazing, the back streets of the more affluent residents of Oslo was great too. Nothing too strenuous.
My 5 star rating partially based upon the price paid: 5 Exceeded expectations 4 Met expectations 3 Did not meet expectations but still would have engaged with the vendor 2 Would not have engaged with the vendor but wouldnt dissuade others from doing so 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
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.
