What you'll do

Our spotting tour will be a long walk across the real heart of Oslo: The Upper City. On our way, we will discover the most 'untouched by time' part of the city. Our mission is to see, feel, smell & listen to the real vibes of Oslo. On our way, we will spot out a lot of places that you would have never found out, otherwise. We will also discuss about the neighborhood we'll walk in, Oslo, Norway & other relevant topics. Therefore, put on a good pair of shoes & bring your camera, because it's time to discover!! Our tour will be circular (we will start & finish at our meeting point) & will take us approximately 2 hours. In case, however, that you (as a group) would like us to have a stop for a coffee/snackit, it can take up to 3 hours. There are 2 available pit stops for us, in which we will be able to feel the local vibes of everyday living. The choice is up to you!

Krístian

My name is Kristian, I am 34 years old & I am a Greek, who feels rather Norwegian. I have been working in Communications & Media since 2008, most lately as a researcher for the European Union. Culture, however, is what was always fascinating me the most. I am an accredited Cultural Educator by the 'Bentley University' of Boston & an 'European Press Prizes' accredited Cultural columnist. Spotting tours were always my guilty pleasure - both when it comes to my family's tourism business in Greece & my research missions abroad. The reason? We might live in the era of city breaks, but we end up visiting city monuments instead. London, however, is so much more than the Big Ben, Paris is so much more than the Eiffel Tower & Oslo is so much more than the Opera House. That's why; spotting tours are the only way to get some real... inCites!

Where you'll be

The Upper City tour starts by the foot of Akershus Castle, at Christiania's Torv square - next to the Rådhus promenaden. We will go up the low hills of Oslo (Pilestredet, St. Hanshaugen, Bislett) & through Bogstadveien: The "Karl Johan" market of the locals. On our way, we will witness how Oslo was developed "in rewind", designed with an open-space mindset, kept it's original identity & preserved it's original architecture.
