OSLO, NORWAY
I had been wanting to visit Norway for a while, and the city of Oslo didn't disappoint, especially in the summer where it's sunny nearly all day. With great food and several activities, what's not to love?

GETTING AROUND THE CITY

Oslo is an extremely walkable city, which - if you're anything like me - is always the preference. That way you can see as much of the city as possible, and pop in to random stores and restaurants as you walk by. 

If walking isn't what you prefer, luckily public transportation is available and so easy to navigate. 

WHERE TO STAY 

Karl Johan Hotel
@MKTravelLifestyle
Where I stayed during my visit to this wonderful city, and everything about it was perfect. The location is perfect, the staff are so friendly, and I would come back and stay here again every time.

Didn't personally stay here, but I was strongly considering it. Also a great hotel in a prime location.

KOK Oslo Sauna, Langkaia
@MKTravelLifestyle
What a highlight of my trip! This floating sauna on the water is so peaceful and relaxing. You can rent either privately or semi-privately for a couple hours where you hop back and forth from the sauna to the chilly water like a natural cold plunge.

Ekebergparken
@MKTravelLifestyle
A beautiful park a bit outside the city center - but still walkable - with some local art.

Opera house
@MKTravelLifestyle
One of the architectural sites in Oslo that's truly beautiful to look at. You can also walk up to the roof and get a great view of the city.

Lofoten Fiskerestaurant

A nice fish restaurant right on the water. I recommend getting the 3 course menu, which changes locally with the freshest fish.

HIMKOK Storgata Destilleri
@MKTravelLifestyle
A sleek bar with excellent cocktails, and a wide variety of drinks.

Vaaghals
@MKTravelLifestyle
This was my favorite meal during my stay in Oslo. I recommend getting the hake, the beef, and the Norwegian cheeses. The wine is also excellent if you're interested in doing a pairing.

Amundsen Bryggeri & Spiseri
@MKTravelLifestyle
Stumbled upon this place wanting a pint, and so glad I did! There's plenty of outdoor seating which is perfect for the summer.

Hi there! I'm based in Los Angeles, but love to travel. My life goal is to see as much of the world as possible. All my travel itineraries are based off my own personal research, travels, and experiences. I've been to 35+ countries and still counting. I love experiencing the finer aspects of travel, but certainly won't shy away from budget options if they come highly recommended. All in all, I value experiences and memories over everything else. Hope you enjoy and have as wonderful of a time as I did!
