Exploring winter Oslo - #visitoslo2018

A winter adventure

Join photographer Tor and instagrammer Anda as they check out the streets and slopes of snowy Oslo, camera in hand.


Tor and Anda were two of the #visitoslo2018 participants. This video shows some highlights from their winter visit:

Behind the very Norwegian name Tor, we find a photographer from Los Angeles who, despite feeling close to his Norwegian heritage, had never travelled to Norway. 

'I feel it is truly the land of my people and am embarrassed that it has taken me so long to get there.'

On the first day, they took the subway up in the hills of Oslo for some fun in the snow. Having grown up in Vermont, Tor boasts decent skills in both alpine and cross-country skiing. Some of the other participants were less familiar with the concept of skiing, among them Romanian instagrammer Anda.

But Anda gave it a go, and had the time of her life playing in in the snow. She quickly got control of the skis; in the video you can even see her taking a selfie while skiing through the forest! (Look for a purple jacket!) 

'Having the forest so close to the city, makes Oslo a magical place. It’s just a wonderful playground.'

Professional photographer Tor was rarely seen without his beloved camera, and went home with thousands of photos from his "home country".

Oslo is overflowing with gorgeous visuals. As a photographer, there was simply not enough hours in a day to capture everything that I was seeing.

I took a lot of pictures and enjoyed the fresh air and the white snow.
I'd love to come back and see Oslo in the summer.
