One-week Scandinavia by train itinerary

Posted on Last updated: June 5, 2024

Explore Scandinavia by train in just one week on this rail itinerary which takes you from the cosmopolitan capital cities of Copenhagen, Stockholm and Oslo to the spectacular Norwegian fjords.

* This site contains affiliate links , where I get a small commission from purchases at no extra cost to you.

One-week Scandinavia by train itinerary

Get a taste of three different countries within one week and experience a smörgåsbord of Scandinavian delights as you travel across Scandinavia by train – from Michelin-starred restaurants and world-class museums in the region’s cities to fjord boat trips and scenic mountain railway journeys through its stunning landscapes.

Travelling through Denmark, Sweden and Norway, you’ll visit Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo, Flåm and Bergen. This Scandinavian rail itinerary will show you which trains to take, how much they cost, how to book and what to see and do at each stop.

One-week Scandinavia by train itinerary map

Day 1: Copenhagen

Start your Scandinavia by train trip with a full day in the Danish capital Copenhagen. Head to the colourful harbour district of Nyhavn and join the crowds on the waterfront for drinks on a sunny afternoon. Or take a boat trip * through the canals past the Christiansborg and Amalienborg Palaces and the (surprisingly small) Little Mermaid statue.

Climb to the top of the Rundetårn (Round Tower) for views across the city – instead of steps it has a spiral ramp. Or try out the rides and rollercoasters at the Tivoli Gardens *, the world’s second-oldest amusement park, which is beautifully lit up at night.

Colourful buildings on the waterfront in Nyhavn, Copenhagen

Copenhagen is famous for its restaurant scene and is a great place to splash out on a special meal, with 16 Michelin-starred restaurants to choose from, including three-star Geranium. Or you can shop for cool Scandi-style clothes and homewares in the mix of high-street and designer boutiques on Strøget – the longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe.

Where to stay in Copenhagen: Located close to the train station in Vesterbro, the Absalon Hotel * is one of Copenhagen’s oldest family-owned hotels. Its 161 rooms have been decorated with pops of colour and luxurious fabrics by the Designers Guild, and there’s a cocktail bar and communal lounge, plus a courtyard with a mini golf course.

Day 2: Copenhagen > Stockholm

Next morning, take an early train for the 5 hour 30 minute journey to Stockholm, travelling along the Öresund Link – a huge bridge-turned-tunnel which straddles the border between Denmark and Sweden. Catch the 08.19 high-speed tilting train from Copenhagen Central ( København Hovedbanegård ) which arrives into Stockholm Central at 13.34.

Then spend the afternoon in the Swedish capital. Get lost in the cobblestone streets of medieval Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s old town. It was founded in 1252 with gold-painted buildings mixed with churches, palaces, museums and squares. Spread across four islands, the area is also home to the Storkyrkan cathedral, Swedish Parliament and Royal Palace.

Stockholm in Sweden at dusk

Go back in time with a journey through the history of Sweden at the Skansen Open Air Museum. Or learn more about Sweden’s biggest exports (other than IKEA) at the ABBA Museum and the Nobel Prize Museum (if you’re planning on visiting a few places you can save money using a Go City Stockholm Pass *). And don’t miss the metro – even if you’re not planning on travelling anywhere, this underground art gallery is worth a visit.

Where to stay in Stockholm: For a quirky change from a hotel, why not stay on board a 1920s yacht once owned by a Woolworths heiress married to Cary Grant? The Mälardrottningen Yacht Hotel & Restaurant * is anchored a short walk away from Gamla Stan. Cabins have bunks or double beds, porthole windows and private bathrooms.

Painted walls in the Stockholm Metro, Sweden

Day 3: Stockholm > Oslo

Finish your time in Stockholm by exploring the Stockholm Archipelago. Around 30,000 islands lie in the waters of the Baltic Sea off the coast of Stockholm, with all shapes and sizes from tiny uninhabited rocky islets to whole island communities.

You can take a sightseeing boat trip * around the archipelago’s waterways on board a vintage ship. Or catch one of the public ferries to Fjäderholmarna. It’s only 20 minutes from downtown Stockholm and has art and craft studios to visit, forest and coast walks, and the harbourside Fjäderholmarnas Brewery pub to call into for a drink.

Island in the Stockholm archipelago off Stockholm

Then head back to Stockholm Central to catch the afternoon train across the border to Oslo in Norway. It’s a 6-hour journey so you might want to stock up on some kanelbullar (Swedish cinnamon buns). Take the 15.29 direct Intercity train from Stockholm Central and you’ll arrive into Oslo Central station at 21.24, in time for a late dinner.

Where to stay in Oslo: A couple of minutes’ from the train station, the environmentally friendly Clarion Hotel The Hub * is one of the biggest hotels in Oslo. As well as its 812 rooms there is a good range of facilities, including a pool, gym and sauna. There’s also an urban garden and rooftop bar and restaurant which has great views across the city.

scandinavian train tour

Day 4: Oslo

Today you have a full day to spend in Oslo. See Edvard Munch’s famous painting The Scream at the Norwegian National Gallery, or check out some of his other works at the new Munch Museum. Catch a performance at the modern Oslo Opera House – or just climb up onto its roof to check out the views of the Oslofjord at sunset.

You can also also take a look around the 13th-century Akershus Fortress, a medieval castle which was built to protect Oslo from Swedish invaders and provide a royal residence.

Or catch a ferry from Oslo harbour across the bay to the Bygdøy Peninsula to learn more about Norway’s maritime history at the Viking Ship Museum, Norwegian Maritime Museum and museums dedicated to the Fram and Kon-Tiki ships. Then head to Aker Brygge, an old shipyard with brick warehouses turned into waterfront restaurants.

The Akershus Fortress in Oslo, Norway

Day 5: Oslo > Flåm

The following day, head west towards the coast on the 6-hour journey from Oslo to the Norwegian fjords. Start by taking the Bergensbanen (Bergen Line) from Oslo to Myrdal, departing Oslo Central at 08.25 and arriving in Myrdal at 13.05.

The Bergen Line was built at the end of the 19th century and travels through gorgeous scenery, along river valleys, past waterside villages and mountain peaks, reaching its highest point at 1237 metres near Finse before descending to Myrdal.

The Flåmsbana scenic train at Myrdal station on a trip through Scandinavia by train

From Myrdal, catch the scenic Flåmsbana mountain railway for the 50-minute journey to Flåm, on the edge of the fjords. The train departs from Myrdal at 13.24 and arrives into Flåm at 14.22 from April to October (or if you’re travelling off season, it departs from Myrdal at 13.15 and arrives into Flåm at 14.05 – see the full timetable ).

The Flåmsbana was built in the 1920s, and its steep gradient meant that each of its 20 tunnels had to be dug out by hand. Since then it’s become one of Norway’s top visitor attractions. Prepare to get dizzy from checking out the views from each side of the train as it zig-zags past lakes, waterfalls, rocky cliffs, green valleys and wooden churches.

Reflections of the fjords in Flam, Norway

The tiny village of Flåm lies on the banks of the Sognefjord – the longest fjord in Norway. Spend the afternoon taking a look around the village. Follow the pathway along the water’s edge to soak up the views, visit the Flåm Railway Museum to find out how the Flåmsbana was built, and try local craft beer and traditional dishes at the Ægir brewery.

Where to stay in Flåm: The Fretheim Hotel * has welcomed visitors to Flåm since the 19th century. Get a taste of those days in its Historic Wing, where rooms have antique furniture, china tea sets and clawfoot baths. The hotel’s a cosy mix of pine, tartan and log fires, with huge windows in the restaurant to make the most of the views.

Day 6: Flåm > Bergen

Start the day with a 2-hour cruise along the fjords to Gudvangen. The trip takes you through two different branches of the Sognefjord – the Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord. Along the way the shoreline is dotted with colourful farming villages backed by steep rocky peaks, and keep your eyes out for seals and porpoises in the fjord’s green waters.

If you take the 09.30 cruise you reach Gudvangen at 11.30. Then it’s a 20-minute shuttle ride bus back to Flåm – buses depart at 11.45 year-round and also at 12.45/13.45 from May–September. Back in Flåm, retrace your steps back to Mydral on board the Flåmsbana, then change onto the Bergensbanen for the 2-hour return journey to Bergen.

The Flåmsbana departs from Flåm at 14.55 (14.30 from November–March), then you change in Mydral for the 16.00 service which arrives into Bergen at 18.19.

A fjord boat trip on the Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord from Flam

Spend the evening in Bergen. Explore the colourful wooden houses in the UNESCO World Heritage listed Bryggen district, which were built for the merchants of the Hanseatic League. They now house shops and restaurants, including the Unicorn Fish Restaurant which specialises in local seafood – or you can pick some up from the Bergen Fish Market.

Where to stay in Bergen: Det Hanseatiske Hotel * is right at the historic heart of Bryggen, next door to the Hanseatic Museum. The building dates back to 1703 and is full of character, with original features, moody lighting, three restaurants and a library-style bar.

Day 7: Bergen

Then spend the final morning of your Scandinavia by train trip seeing more of Bergen. You can take the Fløibanen funicular railway to the top of Mount Fløyen for views across the city and out into the fjords. Or get up even higher on board the Ulriken cable car, which takes you to the peak of Bergen’s tallest mountain at 643 metres high.

Then if you’re flying back home, Airport Express buses connect the city centre with Bergen Airport, running every 10 minutes and taking 20 minutes.

If you’ve got more time, you could extend your trip by heading north up through the fjords on board one of the Hurtigruten ferries. They’re a mix between a cruise and ferry, and shuttle locals as well as tourists up the Norwegian coast. The full journey from Bergen to Kirkenes – in the far north of the country, close to the border with Russia – takes a week.

But you can also stop off at destinations along the way. The cities of Ålesund and Trondheim are just a day or two by boat from Bergen, or you can cross the Arctic Circle and spot the Northern Light in Bodø, Tromsø or the spectacular Lofoten Islands.

The Lofoten Islands in Norway

How much does it cost?

When you’re planning a European rail trip, you can either book individual tickets or get a railpass, which can be a better deal if you’re under 28, want more flexibility or are booking late. Here’s how the prices break down for the two different options on this route.

Individual tickets

Ticket prices vary depending on how early you book, with a limited number of cheap tickets available. So book as early as possible – on most routes you can book 3–4 months in advance – but beware these tickets are non-transferable so you’re tied to a specific train. Using the cheapest fares, the cost of trains on this route starts at €223 per person.

  • Copenhagen > Stockholm: from 515 SEK (€48)
  • Stockholm > Oslo: from 305 SEK (€29)
  • Oslo > Flåm: from 799 NOK (€78)
  • Flåm > Bergen: from 699 NOK (€68)

The railpass option

There are also various rail passes available through InterRail (for European residents) and Eurail (for non-European residents), which cover individual countries or the whole region and are valid for different periods of time, varying from four days to three months.

The Scandinavia by train itinerary involves four travel days across three countries, so the best option is the Global Pass for 4 travel days within 1 month . This costs €246 for adults, €185 for youths (aged 12–27) or €221 for seniors (aged 60+) in second class.

Boats and colourful buildings by he canal in Christianshavn in Copenhagen

As well as the pass, you also need to pay an extra compulsory reservation fee in some countries and for certain trains – usually high-speed or sleeper services.

The Flåm Railway is a special tourist service so isn’t covered by InterRail/Eurail passes, but passholders get a discount of 30% off the cost of the full fare. For this trip, the extra fees come to €63, broken down as below, meaning the overall railpass cost starts from €248.

  • Copenhagen > Stockholm: €7
  • Stockholm > Oslo: €3
  • Oslo > Myrdal: €5.40
  • Flåm Railway: €42 (429 NOK return after discount)
  • Myrdal > Bergen: €5.40

Reservations can be made at any train station and online through SJ (Swedish Railways) for free, or via the InterRail/Eurail reservations service for a fee of €2.

How to book

There are a variety of websites where you can book European train journeys, but often the best deals are though the official railway company sites for each country. For this trip these are SJ (Sweden) and VY (Norway), both of which have websites in English.

You can also book tickets for Scandinavian trains with Omio * or The Trainline . The advantage is they cover multiple countries, you can see prices in €, £ or $, use international credit cards and print or use mobile tickets, but they do charge a small booking fee.

Don’t want to do it yourself? You can also book this One-week Scandinavia by train itinerary * as a package through our partners Byway, the world’s first flight-free holiday platform. And you can save £100 off your first booking using the code LUCE100 if you book before the end of June 2024.

Day 5 - Overnight ferry to Copenhagen

The morning and early afternoon is free in Oslo before boarding the overnight voyage to Copenhagen. Accommodation in seaside cabins with shower/WC.

Day 6 - Wonderful Copenhagen - small and intimate capital.

Copenhagen has a long history, and many delightful attractions and sights - you will never run out of something to see or to do. The city is small and cosy, an ideal way to explore the city is by foot, and public transport.

You will have a Copenhagen Card on hand allowing you to free travel on buses and trains within the cities metropolis, as well as free entrance to over 70 museums and attractions. Be sure to visit the new Aquarium if you are interested in design and fish! This new aquarium is included in the Copenhagen card.

Be sure also to climb the tower of Church of our Savior - the spiral stairs were on the outside of the tower and it offers a great aerial view of the city! Not for the faint hearted though.

Days 7 - 8 - Charming Stockholm

In the morning catch a 6-hour train ride through the Swedish countryside to Stockholm. Sweden's capital is charming, vibrant and surrounded by beauty and water - hence its nickname, Venice of the North! Stockholm offers interesting museums and castles; the city offers a warm atmosphere and the old town has charming small alleyways boasting several famous restaurants.

On one of your afternoons here, be sure to make time for a visit to the ABBA museum with great interactive exhibits - a glass of champagne (for Dutch courage to get on stage & the pure fun of it) to accompany your tour is recommended! On the other hand, take the serious option & visit the Nobel Prize museum in the Old town.

scandinavian train tour

Day 9 - Overnight ferry to Helsinki

The morning and early afternoon is free in Stockholm before boarding the overnight voyage to Helsinki through the magnificent Baltic Sea archipelago. Accommodation in seaside cabins with shower/WC.

Days 10 - 12 - Cool Helsinki with daytrip to Tallinn

You have two full days to explore this fabulous eastern Nordic capital. We recommend a walking tour of the city, which is known for its great mixture of neo-classical buildings, orthodox style churches and bars and restaurant scene. You have the opportunity to visit the Senate Square, Uspenski Cathedral, Parliament House, New Opera House, Sibelius Park & Monument and the Underground Temple. The included Helsinki card offers free entrance to almost 50 museums and use of public transportation. Need to take a break - head to the Kotiharjun Sauna, the last traditional wood-burning sauna in Helsinki.

On one of your days in Helsinki we have included return tickets for the ferry from Helsinki to Tallinn. Your trip to Tallinn would normally take a full day departing Helsinki at 07:30 in the morning and arriving back in Helsinki at 19:30. The ferry trip each way takes 2 hours and suddenly you are at the shores of this Eastern beauty. The infinitely charming medieval Old Town is well worth the visit. The cobblestone streets and medieval buildings are a whole world away from what you can expect from Helsinki, Stockholm, Oslo, or Copenhagen. Tallinn feels distinctly Eastern, its architecture reminding the visitor of other beautiful Eastern European Old Towns, such as those of Prague, Krakow, or Riga. Through its history, culture, and location, Estonia connects Eastern Europe, Central Europe, and Scandinavia, offering something altogether different in comparison to your itinerary so far.

Be sure to also check out the option of a day trip from Helsinki to Porvoo on a heritage sailing boat.

Practical information about Scandinavian Hotels

  • Hotel rooms in Scandinavia are normally furnished with twin beds, which can be moved together to form a double bed or placed separately. Please note that single rooms are generally smaller than doubles, and are often equipped with a shower instead of a bath. Purpose-built triple or family rooms are likewise unusual in Scandinavian hotels. Whilst it is possible for 3 persons to share a room, this will normally be a double room with an extra bed, with correspondingly less space to move about in.
  • It is also unusual to have a porter at hotels to carry your luggage.
  • There is free wi-fi in many hotels in Scandinavia.
  • Unexpectedly, all forms of Scandinavian accommodation rarely provide tea and coffee facilities in their rooms. If you are lucky, a kettle will be supplied but nothing else. Please ask at reception for some provisions when you arrive or just carry a small selection from home.
  • Please also note that in Scandinavia - in particular, during winter - the included lunch will often be a hearty warm soup with bread.
  • More remote hotels in Lapland will offer dinner at an additional cost. In some spots, there will be limited choices else where. Generally, you get a very nice home-cooked Scandinavian dinner. However, you may sometimes find only one or two choices only for your main course.
  • In Scandinavia, it is normal for washing and laundry facilities to be in the basement. If you are staying in apartment type accommodation, check downstairs or ask for assistance.

Travel Safe

Travel insurance and safety.

Travel insurance is compulsory for all tours with 50 Degrees North. The safety of our travellers, staff and operators is a major priority of 50 Degrees North. With an operational office in Norway, 50 Degrees North has access to an up-to-the-minute flow of information regarding the countries we work in. We are also in regular contact with the various operators we use. Their in-depth knowledge and understanding of their various areas is vital.

Practical budgeting information before your departure to Norway

Practical budgeting information before your departure to norway:, budget surprises:.

Norway has a few items that typically surprise travellers when visiting Norway for the first time. Alcohol and luxury items are heavily taxed and therefore prices are higher than you would expect. On the other hand, necessities such as bread and milk, are taxed low and therefore are great value.

Alcohol import allowance into Norway:

We recommend that you bring all the alcohol you’re allowed to bring into the country when you arrive. There are many lovely parks and balconies where you can enjoy your duty free. However, be sure not to bring more than you’re allowed!

As of May 2014, the allowances according to Visit Norway are:

Alcoholic beverages: Minimum age: 18/ 20*

1 litre of beverages with more than 22% up to and including 60% alcohol per volume as well as 1½ litre with more than 2.5% up to and including 22% alcohol per volume or three litres with more than 2.5% up to and including 22% alcohol per volume and 2 litres of beer with more than 2.5 % or other beverages with more than 2.5% up to and including 4.7% alcohol per volume. This means that you may for example bring with you five litres of beer provided you do not have any other alcoholic beverages with you.

*For importing alcoholic beverages with more than 22% alcohol per volume the minimum age is 20.

It’s illegal to bring extra alcohol into Norway and can end up costing you. Another thing you should bring and not buy in Norway is razor blades. Good razor blades in Norway are expensive.

Self-catering in Norway

Written by Jayde Kincaid, who married a Norwegian, and was happily (albeit with some hesitation) introduced to a world of Norwegian every day food habits.

At 50 Degrees North, we want to encourage our travellers to try local Norwegian food & drink. This may seem difficult in Scandinavia in general without a large budget, and in particular Norway. Some of the more remote villages you might visit have limited restaurants or cafes, some of which can be pretty expensive. There is certainly no street food! One way to get about sampling local food is by self-catering. You will find plenty of friendly locals in the small town grocery stores and supermarkets who will be happy to help you picking out local ingredients. Just don’t be shy – ask! And, don’t rush – make your local small town shopping part of your holiday experience. Read the local notice boards, and enjoy an ice cream out the front when you have finished. It is what the locals do!

Note: Statoil cups - a good idea to save money as you drive around Norway: purcahse a Statoil (petrol station) metal cup and you get free refills of coffee, tea and hot chocolate at the Statoil stations.

Grocery shopping in remote or far flung Norway:

Norway has an extensive range of grocery stores, and in most small villages you will find at least one, if not two or three grocery stores. However, they do have limited opening hours, and except for ‘Bunnpris’, they are all closed on Sundays. You will see the weekend hours shown in brackets on the store sign out front. If you are arriving in a larger town, we do suggest you stock up with some staples before you head out into the mountains or on a coastal drive.

A few tips:

• Plastic bags are NOK1-2 and you will always need to pack your own shopping. • You can recycle your bottles and cans for a receipt that you can cash in. Recycling points are found in all stores. • Alcohol sold in food stores (mainly beer and cider) is restricted by government regulation to certain hours. This varies slightly, but on weekdays alcohol sales stop at 8pm regardless and on Saturdays at 6pm. Outside these hours and on Sundays you can only buy alcohol in licensed restaurants or bars. • Any alcohol over 4.7% can only be bought at special government controlled liquor store (Vinmonopolet). These are very rare in smaller remote towns and villages, so stock up before you leave the city.

Things to try from a general grocery store:

Meatballs or “meatcakes’: these come in all shapes, sizes and quality. They are generally really tasty and a bit better than what you find at IKEA. Also pick up a packet of dried ready-made brown sauce that goes with them. Be on the look out for Lingonberry sauce/jam, or even fresh lingonberries that you can use to make a fresh sauce (little red circular berries). Don’t add too much sugar, they are served quite tart.

If you want to try to make this brown sauce yourself, buy some ‘brunost’ (brown cheese), the required creams and follow the recipe below.

Hotdogs: known as ‘pølse’ in Norwegian, hot dogs are abundant in Norway. Cheap and cheerful – pølse is THE fast food of Norway. They are sold at service stations, newsagents, corner stores and fast food outlets. Pølse come with a dazzling variety of toppings and bread. Some of the pølse highlights would be the bacon wrapped ones, sprinkled with dried onion, mustards and mayonnaise. You will also find them wrapped in waffles (mostly in and around Fredrikstad) or the Norwegian pancake, ‘lompe’.

Note: there are strict requirements by the Food Safety commission for traditional pølse to be of the highest quality and they have even set requirements for what types of ingredients are allowed.

Like Norwegian beer, you will find seasonal pølse – Christmas pølse (Julepølse) is obviously found only in the lead up to the celebrations.

If you are planning to eat Norwegian style, use boil pølse on the stove and add to meals with potatoes and stew.

Note; steer away from tinned cheap pølse and meatballs.

Fish cakes: these also come in lots of variation and are generally served with a white sauce and lots of parsley. The Norwegians also use a basic white sauce on broccoli with cheese on top. These fish cakes are often found in fish shops, fried or steamed, ready to eat. A great fast snack.

Reindeer: we strongly suggest you try reindeer meat when you are travelling in the far north. It generally comes frozen, so look for finely cut reindeer meat in the freezer section. It is a more expensive option, but absolutely delicious albeit quite gamey. Be sure to get mushrooms, a small amount of brown cheese and rømme (crème fraiche). Fry it all up in a pan - a bit like a beef stroganoff. Serve with boiled potatoes or rice.

Mushrooms: if you are travelling in the chanterelle harvest season (mid/late August), be sure to try them. They are the yellow mushroom found in autumn. Or better still, have a look around the pine forests and pick some. Be sure to image search them before you head out so you know what to pick. They are really delicious with the brown cheese sauce and reindeer.

Salmon, prawns & fish: always be on the look out for a chance to buy fresh fish. Yes, it is possible to smooth talk a fisherman at the harbour. Or look for the local fish-kiosk or fish-shop. Be on the look out for small signs pointing you in the direction of fresh fish sales – ‘reker’ (shrimps, not prawns) or ‘fersk fisk’ (fresh fish) are the words you need. Norwegians are very proud of their shrimps – and of course completely justified. Their shrimps are small and tasty and harvested from the cool North Sea. Norwegians traditionally serve them with mayonnaise and lemon. Peel them and pop them on a fresh white slice of bread. Mayonnaise is layered on top with dill, pepper & salt.

Smoked Salmon: Norwegian smoked salmon is the best in the world hands down. Be sure to try all the different varieties you see – often, in larger supermarkets or delis, you can try before you buy.

Tubed ‘kaviar’ (caviar): this is a must try. It is cheap and perfect for the travellers pantry. This is what my husband craves like an Australian abroad would crave vegemite.

Norwegian pre-made dips and salads: the Norwegian supermarkets have a large range of premade salads and dips. They last quite a while and are good fillers for sandwiches. Our favourite are the cubed beetroot salad and the potato salads. They come in easy-to-carry and pack-up containers – perfect for picnics. Tubed mayonnaise is also handy for picnics.

‘Leverpostei’ (liver pate) in many variations can also be found in the supermarket. This pate is normally served on brown bread then topped with sliced red onions or sweet pickles. Protein rich and very tasty if you like pate – it is found on most Norwegian breakfast tables.

Yoghurt: now – this is an interesting one. Norwegian yoghurt comes in a variety of styles - some can be very runny, sour and low fat. There are varying names/codes for each sort. You might like to check with a local when you are buying yoghurt to be sure you are getting what you want. Some of the yoghurt comes as though it is milk, in normal milk cartons - sour runny yoghurt is NOT nice in your coffee.

Bread: the Norwegian supermarket bread generally comes un-cut. You can either cut it in the shop – ask for help the first time you do it. They have industrial bread cutting machines near the bakery section. The bread can be quite plain in the main supermarkets so be on the look out for boutique bakeries in the larger towns if you enjoy fancy bread. Also keep an eye out for the Norwegian flatbread, Lefse, which is similar to Mexican tortillas. Usually served with butter and sugar, sometimes cinnamon too. Occasionally made with potato.

Waffles: Norwegian waffle stalls are similar to the sausage sizzle or hot dog stand. It is the most common fundraising or community building food product. Don’t expect sickly sweet jams or whipped cream – you will find these fresh chewy waffles served with sour cream and home made tart berry jams. Never go past one!

Chocolate: we recommend that you try the ‘FREIA’ milk chocolate during your stay. It melts in your mouth.

Berries: if you travel in early autumn (mid/late August) this is berry season. Forest berries that is. Ask a local and head up into the hills or forest in search for berries. You may find; blueberries, lingonberries, rasberries and if you are up north or in the central mountains; the rare yellow cloudberries.

Norwegian Farm Produce:

On a self-drive journey, always be on the look out for small farm shops or stands along the road. Things you cannot drive past:

Strawberries: if you are travelling in the strawberry season – you MUST try Norwegian strawberries. They are seriously amazing. Grown in the nutritious earth that has the chance to rejuvenate through a long winter.

_And if you go past a self-pick strawberry farm, put everything else on hold and enter!  Norwegians wait all year for this event. _

New potatoes: be on the look out for new season potatoes – they are often sold in little stands beside the road. Often on an honesty basis; i.e. grab a bag and put the money in an allocated tin.

CLASSIC RECIPE:

Basic Brown Cheese Recipe – can be used with meatballs, reindeer, with added mushrooms. • 2 tablespoons butter • 2 tablespoons flour • 3⁄4 cup light cream • 1⁄2 cup chicken broth (optional - just use water if you cannot find this) • 1 cup shredded gjetost or brown goats cheese • 3⁄4 cup rømme (crème fraiche) • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley or 2 tablespoons fresh dill

Method: Using the meat dish that has been browned off, remove as much oil from the pan as possible and blend in butter and flour. Remove from heat and blend in light cream. Add chicken broth, bring to boil, stirring and cooking until thickened. Mix in Gjetost cheese. Turn heat low. Blend some of the sauce into the rømme (crème fraiche), then return all to sauce. Add chopped parsley or fresh dill.

Happy shopping and cooking!

Restaurants to try in Oslo

Tietse Stelma

Oslo restaurants, in the tradition of the New Nordic Food Movement, have the depth and sophistication you would expect from the capital city of Norway. Read our options for places to try.

In Oslo you find restaurants in all price categories and genres.

Norwegian cuisine in its traditional form is based largely on the raw materials readily available in Norway and its mountains, wilderness and coast. It differs in many respects from its continental counterparts with a stronger focus on game and fish. Many of the traditional dishes are results of using conserved materials, with respect to the long winters.

Here is a few of our favourites in Oslo's wide variety of restaurants:

  • Lofoten Fish Restaurant, traditional and quaint with the broths and creamy fish options you would expect in Norway
  • Restaurant Kontrast , near Mathallen, 1 Michelin-star restaurant with a moderate price tag (pictured above)
  • Topp Hem , Norwegian, seasonal and local from nearby farms served as share-platters
  • Nedre Foss Gård , an old historic farm in Oslo that is now a refurbished (after a fire in 2016) restaurant/ bar with and outdoor courtyard. Nedre Foss Gård means Lower Waterfall (Foss) Farm.
  • Theatercafeen
  • Solsiden Restaurant -De Fem Stuer, is located in the old wooden building from 1894 and is one of Oslo's best restaurant set in a great surrounding on top of hill overlooking Oslo
  • Ekebergrestauranten
  • Engebret Café
  • Frognerseteren Restaurant: Finstua

For less expensive restaurants, head to the Grunerlokka district . It is great place to take in the city's pulse in the city's more ethnically diverse east. In this once working-class area, the vital signs of budget Oslo are most apparent, with low-cost restaurants, second-hand clothes shops and student bars grouped around the streets Markveien and Thorvald Meyers Gate. Among them, the café bar Fru Hagen has a legion of blond locals seeking cheap eats. On a Sunday evening, when much of the city is almost deserted, Fru Hagen is heaving.

When in Oslo try these local cuisines:

Smoked Salmon or Røkt Laks

Kjøttboller - Meatballs

Krumkake - waffle-like pancake, which are then filled with whipped cream
