Oslo: 24-Hour Bike Rental

3. Oslo: 24-Hour Bike Rental

If you dream of savoring long Scandanavian summer evenings, there’s no better way than from the seat of a bike. Take in the sights of Oslo and enjoy the ambiance of a city that seems to have nearly endless days in the summertime. A full-day bike rental from Viking Biking gives you the freedom to explore the city, the beautiful coastline, and the enchanting forested hills surrounding it all. You’ll have a bike of the highest quality that’s perfect for your size, no matter your age or height. All the rental bikes have at least 20 gears, allowing you to enjoy the flat city center or challenge yourself with a ride on the mountain bike trails perched high above the city. If this trip is your first to Oslo, take advantage of the mapping service (for an additional fee). Knowledgeable local staff will provide you with a map and point out some suggested routes that enable you to take in all of the major sites via bike paths, parks, and hidden trails. If you’re a return visitor, they can suggest a route you might not have discovered in the past. If you rent a bike on a nice summer day, you might want to take a trip to the Bygdøy peninsula. This is an area of historic wooden homes, some of the city's best museums, and kilometers of unspoiled coastline. Swim in the warmest waters in all of Northern Europe! Another great alternative for a self-guided bike trip is to discover the Oslo hills and forest. Perched high above the city, the Oslo forest affords unforgettable views of the city, the Oslo fjord, and the hundreds of kilometers of untouched wilderness. Stop along the way to enjoy a picnic in a field of wildflowers or simply keep pedaling to see more hidden lakes, more quiet paths, and more surprising views.

Very nice trip, highly recommended, fresh prawns were offered to eat, which tasted delicious. Very nice staff, very friendly captain with whom I had a very nice conversation. In addition, there are wonderful views to be seen along the way. Overall, very recommendable

Very nice trip, pleasant time to spend. Beautiful views, some breathtaking images in the sunshine. Also good shrimps and wine or beer on the boat for extra money. All in all, I enjoyed the experience.

Everything was perfect and very well organized. If you go on the boat trip in September, you should really dress very warmly so as not to freeze. Radiant heaters would have been nice.
