Oslo on a budget

There are ways to enjoy the city without maxing out your credit card.

Getting around
A cheap way to get around the city is to make use of the buses, trams, subways and ferries. Or why not use your feet? Oslo has a compact city centre, so put on some comfortable shoes and walk between the attractions.

Things to do
Many attractions and events have free entrance, and if you keep away from the most touristy spots, there are streets and areas with cheaper food and drinks. With the Oslo Fjord and the forest nearby, there is no shortage of hiking trails and beautiful scenery. If you have the necessary equipment, it doesn’t cost you anything to go fjord fishing, cross-country skiing or biking around the city.

These pages present some suggestions on how to make your stay in Oslo cheaper:
