Full description
The experience starts with a short stroll around the Christmas-y city. On your way to the Christmas market village, you will learn a bit about Oslo's history and some of the most famous sights. After about an hour, we will move to the 'Winter village' which is the biggest Christmas marketplace in Oslo. You will be able to take the opportunity to warm yourself up with the traditional Norwegian drink, “gløgg” (mulled wine), or taste some of the traditional Christmas foods such as “julegrøt” (porridge), “julepølse”(pork sausage), or “tynnlefser” (flatbread) and learn everything you need to know about the Christmas in Norway. The tour is concluded with a cozy session by the fire where your guide will be telling you one of the most magical Norwegian Christmas stories while you'll be sipping your warm gløgg.

It was only me and the tour guide, so it was extra special to get into deeper conversation on Norwegian Christmas traditions. The guide was excellent, gave lots of information on history or places in general, also could show me a lot of nice instagram-worthy places. All in all I can really recommend this tour!

The tour was really great! Our guide Marcus took a lot of time, even more than the specified 2.5 hours, and gave us a really good first impression of Oslo. He even gave us tips for good restaurants and other highlights, thanks for that!

Our guide was WONDERFUL! Despite the -9 temperature, she was flawless. She provided great incite to a great city of Oslo culminating with the magic of the Christmas market. Thank you!
