Escape the hustle and bustle of the capital by taking a T-bane metro to Holmenkollen. Oslo’s premier ski area is the gateway to the Marka forest and boasts panoramic views of the city, an unspoiled natural environment and numerous marked walking and cycling trails.
The much photographed Vigeland Sculpture Park is also worthy of a visit. Adorned with 212 bronze, iron and granite sculptures, including the renowned and much photographed ‘angry child’, the park commemorates the work of Gustav Vigeland.
In 2013, a new sculpture park was opened on the Ekeberg Hills in the city of Oslo. The Ekebergparken has 31 individually commission sculptures - including the Walking Woman - and enjoys spectacular views over the capital to the Oslofjord.
For excursions out of Oslo, Hadeland Glassworks is worthy of a mention. Located 1 hour from the city at the southern tip of Randsfjord, the glassworks, founded in 1762, offers tradition, history and culture as well as the latest in trends and design. You can even try glassblowing first-hand.
