This relaxed walking tour will let you explore one of Oslo’s coolest districts – Grünerløkka – with a knowledgeable local guide.

Set beside the lazy Akerselva river a short distance from the city centre, Grünerløkka is a leafy part of town with loads of character. On this tour you’ll wander past old industrial buildings and pretty parks, learning about life in this traditional working class district, which has seen an influx of artists and creatives in recent years.

You’ll see old wooden houses from the 1800s, facades covered in street art, and independent shops selling everything from t-shirts to edgy Scandi furniture. Needless to say, Grünerløkka attracts more than its fair share of hipsters, who can often be spotted at the area’s flea markets and brewpubs.

What others say: ‘[This tour] was probably the best bit of our trip. It was great to see the “off-the-beaten-track” sights and we revisited a lot of the places pointed out on the tour afterwards’
– Caroline R

Grünerløkka was once home to one of Norway’s most famous artists – Edvard Munch – so the place has a long and proud artistic tradition.
