Attraction details
Owner description: Oslo, recent winner of the EU's European Green Capital Award, is best discovered when active and outdoors. Explore all the places a bus cannot: take a bike tour and cycle through the Royal Palace Gardens or next to rushing waterfalls in the downtown; rent a bike and make your way to the various beaches along the coast; hike among the hills and lakes in Europe's largest urban forest; or island hop on one of our nature walks. Let Viking Biking and Viking Hiking show you all Oslo has to offer.

We visited Oslo when on a cruise. The first day in Oslo, we took the cruise-provided coach tour of the city highlights - so, today we wanted something different and the “Off the Beaten Path” tour was a great alternative. (I also love bike tours compared with regular coach or walking tours.) We had a nice small group, and Christian (a transplanted Brit) was an excellent guide. He made many stops to fill us in on details of what we were seeing, and the small group made the overall experience extremely enjoyable. I’m sure the City Highlights tour is good as well, but if you want something different, try the “Off the Beaten Path” tour.

Thank KEN L

Thank you Ken for your kind review. It makes us to happy to hear when customers appreciate the "alternative" side of our morning tour as we try to show a different side of Oslo on that ride -- a side that is more from a local's perspective and a part of the city that all of us who work at Viking Biking use and enjoy regularly. I will pass along your nice words to Christian.

Best regards,

Curtis Rojak

Hi Jenny,

Thank you for the nice review regarding our bike repair services. Christian, our lead mechanic, takes great pride not only in keeping our own fleet of 160+ bikes in good working order, but helping out the general public with quality repairs and services. Drop-ins are always welcomed!

Best regards,

We rented two bikes from Viking Biking and the service was great! We were in and out of the shop in about 10 min, the bikes were in excellent condition and more comfortable than our own bikes back home. It took us about 4 hours to cover all the major tourist attractions and most of Oslo’s local spots. To return the bikes, all we had to do is just return them. We were down in about 15 seconds. We had an awesome day in Oslo and were able to see everything we wanted in a short period of time. Thank you Viking Biking!

Hi Remilia,

Thank you for the nice review and it is great to hear that you found the rental process quick and easy. We had a staff meeting just a couple of weeks ago and the focus was on making the process even smoother, both for rentals and tours. So to receive your review makes it feel like we spent our time well. We want to have that fine balance of offering our customers friendly and welcoming service but not using up too much of their time because the real focus should be on enjoying Oslo by bike. Tusen takk!
