Oslo Guide – Review of the Oslo Pass

If you are visiting Oslo, the most expensive city in the world, then you will want to use our Oslo Guide to help you explore the city with an Oslo Pass.

Published

Oslo Guide Vigeland Park, Crazy Baby Statue Oslo

If you are on a budget, then visiting the most expensive City in the World can be terrifying. But there is no need to skip the city if you stick to our Oslo Guide and use an Oslo Pass.

And if you choose to go in the off-season, like we did in October, then you are likely to save even more money and miss the crowds over summer and winter. Just be warned that it may mean some places will have limited opening hours.

Oslo Guide

The first thing you will want to lay your hands on is the the Oslo Pass. It is guaranteed to save you money with free entry to over 30 museums, free public transport around Oslo and a few extra savings like discounts on meals.

You can choose between the 24, 48 or 72 hour cards. We had the 72 hour card (495 NOK or US$87) and it was perfect for the autumn season, because we didn’t have to rush around trying to fit everything into 48 hours. Plus it is just too cold to get started too early in the morning or carry on late into the night.

If we didn’t have the Oslo Pass then we would have spent 860 NOK (US$151) on transportation and entry fees. That’s a saving of 365 NOK (US$64). And to be honest, we probably could have squeezed a few more attractions in if we really wanted to.

3 Day Oslo Guide – Recommended Sights

While we were busy in Oslo and saw a lot, we were not run off our feet and exhausted each day. Plus it was the middle of October and the temperature hovered around 6 degrees Celsius. So we didn’t like spending too much time outdoors even though we do love the cold.

We also used our Oslo guide book, that comes free with the Oslo Pass, to plan our days to maximise the time spent in each area.

Holmenkollen

Holmenkollen is situated about 20 minutes out of Oslo city on the Metro 1 line and well worth the trip. We spent a few hours checking out the HUGE ski jump overlooking the city of Oslo.

Oslo Holmenkollen Ski Jump

As well as the world’s oldest Ski museum, which tells this history of skiing through the ages from several thousand years ago. A must for any snow adventure lovers like ourselves.

Vigeland Park

We have never been more confused by a park than we were at Vigeland Park.

Oslo Guide Vigeland Park

We have no idea what the statues represent or why they even exist, but surely a man being attacked by four flying babies is a little bit weird in anyone’s book?

What about creepy babies riding on the back of a naked lady with her hair braided between her teeth?

Vigeland Park Oslo Guide

While completely freaky, the Vigeland Park is the world’s largest sculpture park made by a single artist (Gustav Vigeland), and is one of Norway’s most popular tourist attractions. We highly recommend that you go and check it out for yourself and have a laugh.

Noble Peace Center

The Noble Peace Center was probably the highlight for both of us. Especially as they currently have an incredible exhibition on Mahatma Gandhi showing. While he is the world’s most famous Peace activist, he has never won the Noble Peace prize.

It was also enlightening learning a little bit more about the Noble Peace prize as we were both surprised at how little we actually knew about some of the worlds greatest Peace activists who have won over the last century.

Bygdøy Museums

You can easily spend a day over at Bygdøy, so catch the ferry across (or Bus 30) in the morning, and spend the whole day exploring the Peninsula. While there are six museums on the Bygdøy Peninsula, we only had time to check out three of them.

The Viking Ship Museum is home to three well preserved Viking Ships that give an insight into the conquerors who ruled the seas several thousand years ago. Still can’t believe they used to sail these ships across the North Sea to pillage the UK.

Viking Ship Museum Oslo Guide

The Polar Ship Fram exhibition provides a detailed insight into the lives of the Norwegian Polar explorers from the beginning of the 20th Century.

You can follow in the footsteps of heroes such as Roald Amundsen, the first man to make it to the South Pole, onboard the Polar Ship Fram and see what their lives were like when they took these crazy adventures.

Oslo Guide Holocaust Center

Memorial at the Holocaust Centre to the Norwegians killed during the Holocaust. 

While extremely moving, the Holocaust Centre is a must for anyone that wants to learn a little more about the Holocaust and how it affected Norway.

We were the only ones wandering around the graphic displays and barely spoke to one another the entire visit. And when we did speak it was barely a whisper. Very sobering, but a must visit for everyone.

Akershus Castle

The Akershus Castle sits prominently above the Oslo harbour protecting the city from invading forces. While the cannons may now be clogged up and pigeons the greatest invaders, the views and scenery are worth the stroll around the grounds.

Unfortunately we didn’t realise that the Castle was closed during the week in winter so missed out seeing inside. But it is free to wander through the gardens and snap the autumn colours.

Oslo Guide Akershus Castle

Oslo Guide to Getting around

While the city is easily walk-able  with most of the main attractions within a 20 minute walk of one another, there are a few that you will need to catch public transport for. And if you have brought the Oslo Pass, then you are sorted.

Just jump on any of the trams, buses or metro line to get around Oslo. Also highly recommended if you are visiting in late Autumn or during Winter when it gets pretty cold!

Oslo Guide Opera House

Oslo Opera House from the Batservice Hop-on Hop-off Ferry

If you have the 72 hour Oslo pass then you also have the chance to use the Båtservice Hop-on, Hop-off ferry to explore the Oslo Fjord for free. The ferry runs year round and stops at the city center, the Opera House and across the harbour to Bygdøy Peninsular for a few popular museums.

Extra Travel Information

Get your Oslo Pass from any of the visitor centers or you can buy it online.

We stayed at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia with their awesome buffet breakfast.

We don’t recommend flying into Oslo with Ryanair because you actually land 120 kms from Oslo City center and it costs US$130 return on the bus! We found out after we booked.

Visit Oslo during the shoulder-season, such as October, to avoid the crowds and higher prices.

Disclaimer: We were provided with an Oslo Pass from the Visit Oslo Tourism Board but all our recommendations are always our own and we would definitely have brought one anyway!

      Such a beautiful city Sophie! Totally didn’t expect to love it as much as we did. Just wish it was a little cheaper…

    Cool opera house! Thanks for the tip about making this pricey destination a bit more budget friendly.

      The shape of the Opera house is meant to represent an Ice Berg… Can kind of see it.

    Didnt expect there to be so much to see either in Oslo, would have liked the sculpyure park – very intriging.
    Thanks for the blog.

    That park looks very confusing! 🙂 I’ve been to Oslo once, but missed most of the sights that time (except Holmenkollen), oh well, something for next time. Looks nice!

    • Cole Burmester

      October 31, 2012 at 9:27 AM

      Not sure if we can afford to go back Jarmo 😉 But definitely need to explore the rest of the adventure activities around Norway next summer!

    Gorgeous photos. Seriously awesome to see your skills growing 🙂 Love the statue in Vigeland park composition especially (I’m a sucker for clouds..)

      October 31, 2012 at 9:30 AM

      I think you made me realise the potential in clouds. My shots used to be two thirds land and 1 third sky. Now it is the opposite haha.

    Great place but expensive. Actually so much history in Oslo.

    • Cole Burmester

      October 31, 2012 at 9:32 AM

      Still lots of cheaper places that are around if you can find them for food etc. Plus the Oslo Pass makes a huge difference and saved us heaps of money!

  7. Turtle

    October 25, 2012 at 6:56 AM

    Awesome tips. But I can’t get over how weird that park is. I don’t think you’d even be allowed to have statues like that in a lot of parks in the United States!

    • Cole Burmester

      October 31, 2012 at 9:34 AM

      I don’t know that you would be allowed sculptures like that anywhere else in the world. I wonder if the artist just didn’t let anyone see the park until he was finished. Then the officials were screwed.

    These city passes are really a great thing to have. Save so much time and money…beautiful shots of Oslo!

    • Cole Burmester

      October 31, 2012 at 9:44 AM

      We probably would have hid in our hotel room if we didn’t have the passes! Even transport to get around is so much easier when you can just flash your Oslo Pass.

  9. Mary @ Green Global Travel

    Beautiful photos of the city. Thanks for the Oslo Pass travel tips.

    That is a one weird park for sure. Man with four babies looks like he’s pushing them away and trying to escape. Love the photos, especially the Oslo Opera House and Akershus Castle. Thanks for the tips to get around in Oslo!

    • Cole Burmester

      October 31, 2012 at 9:53 AM

      I think they are secret flying babies and they are attacking him.

    Thanks,Cole. This is useful to know how to travel Oslo cheaper, since I’ve always been turned off to it because i hear it is SO expensive. I definitely want to visit Norway, but mostly for adventure activities. Perhaps I’ll make a stop in Oslo sometime as well.

    • Cole Burmester

      October 31, 2012 at 10:37 AM

      We were just dipping our toes in Norway on this trip. Will have to go back for the adventures in summer next year!

    Really beautiful photos guys! Apparently now Finland and Switzerland are more expensive to live in than Australia, so maybe I need to write some tips on how to save money here!

    • Cole Burmester

      October 31, 2012 at 10:40 AM

      I think I will get a shock when I fly back to NZ for a few weeks in November with the price increases. But probably won’t be as bad as the Scandinavian prices!

  13. EurotripTips

    October 31, 2012 at 8:14 PM

    I looooved Oslo. SO many museums – the perfect reason for getting the Oslo pass!

    • Cole Burmester

      November 1, 2012 at 4:39 PM

      It was non-stop Museums! Was hard to plan our days because since it was winter lots had limited hours. Just something to keep in mind 😉

    Oslo looks so cool! I spent a few weeks in Sweden after college and have always wanted to go back to Scandanavia.

    • Cole Burmester

      November 3, 2012 at 4:53 PM

      We really want to go see the rest of Norway now. So many adventure activities to have!

  15. Ali

    November 3, 2012 at 3:38 PM

    Definitely sounds like a great deal. Those statues are a bit odd! There’s a statue of a giant eating children in Bern, Switzerland, maybe this guy being attacked by the babies should hook up with the giant for some help? 🙂

    • Cole Burmester

      November 3, 2012 at 4:57 PM

      Hahaha now we have to go to Bern and check out that one! Sounds just as crazy.

  16. Alexandra

    December 27, 2012 at 9:35 PM

    Flying Babies are vicious! You never know when they might attack 😉

    • Cole Burmester

      January 16, 2013 at 10:18 AM

      You have to totally watch out for them in Oslo! They just come out of nowhere.

  17. Linda Bibb

    February 19, 2013 at 2:01 PM

    The flying babies statue is truly creepy. It looks like that man is kicking the one.

    Thanks for the tip about RyanAir. I’ll have to remember that. It seems obvious that they are not at all concerned about their passengers’ comfort.

    • Cole Burmester

      February 19, 2013 at 2:34 PM

      Everyone (including us) continues to fly with RyanAir though because their prices are just so much cheaper. Then we all complain! We don’t really have a reason to when we choose to fly with them in the first place 😉

      • Linda Bibb

        February 19, 2013 at 11:14 PM

        I totally understand that it’s cheaper. I was just thinking about our flights on other cheap European airlines and that not all of them arrive at airports in another time zone. 🙂

  18. Mary Ann

    December 5, 2013 at 12:01 PM

    your blog made me really laugh hard because of the park that is kind of weird and can even get over until now, LOL, Thank you for the tips and looking forward to going there even though i feel a little jittery especially that tourist kept mentioning how expensive it is there. Im planning to fly with norwegian air from Bangkok and maybe you have idea with the cheapest ride from airport to city center

  19. Diane

    May 26, 2016 at 8:52 AM

    Hi,

    I wonder if you can help? we are getting the Oslo pass direct to our mobile and the question was with the metro system is there something else we must do rather than just get on it! Do you need to swap it for anything or validate it at a machine etc. Little concerned going to encounter a metro barrier and no ticket to exit.

    many thanks
    Di

    • Cole Burmester

      June 10, 2016 at 7:59 AM

      That’s a great question but one I can’t help with sorry! We just had the tickets. I’m sure there will be something there for you to scan 🙂 Enjoy your trip!

Top of Cappadocia day trek – with Middle Earth Travel

Published

on

Trekking through the valleys of Cappadocia’s fairy chimneys with Middle Earth Travel feels more like the set of a Star Wars movie than a historical region once carved out and lived in by humans. Churches, homes and pigeon houses are scattered throughout the valleys, all waiting to be explored. The best part is, Middle Earth Travel know all the hidden secrets.

Standing at the top of Cappadocia

Top of Cappadocia day trek – with Middle Earth Travel

On the 26th of July (which just so happens to be my birthday!) Middle Earth Travel took us on their private and guided Top of Cappadocia day trek. From Pasabag, along the top of Cappadocia and down through the Gulludere Rose Valley to Goreme, we trekked 15kms in one day! (We recommend getting your bearings with this map)

Upon arrival to the Middle Earth Offices, we were warmly greeted by our new friend Atil whom we had met a few days earlier while mountain biking through the Kizilcukur Red Valley. We were then introduced to our guide and given a briefing regarding the day. Normally, the Top of Cappadocia tour would start from Çavuşin, however, since we had already explored Çavuşin Castle, they adapted our tour to compensate ensuring we would explore new terrain!

With charged cameras, plenty of water and our running shoes on, we were driven to our starting point of Pasabag. We wandered through the fairy chimneys, coming across camels and markets – then the true hike began.

It was a slow and gentle incline. With no trees to provide shade, I quickly realised why our tour guide had chosen to wear fully covered clothing! As the sweat quickly set in (a waterfall in Moss’s case) we snapped away with our cameras and enjoyed the entertaining shapes of Imagine Valley and the amazing view. We also passed a lot of rock piles, which according to our guide mean ‘father’ and are built to help lead the way.

The higher we trekked, the more breath taking the views became! As we walked along the summit of Bozdag mountain (the Top of Cappadocia) we could see EVERTHING – Pasabag, Çavuşin Castle, Kizilcukur Red Valley, Gulludere Rose Valley and Goreme. We were on the Father of Valleys! After a quick nod of agreement to the guide, we pushed ourselves the extra distance and made our way to the flag, as this HAD to be the highest point and was definitely worth a photo and a selfie or two!

Flag at top of Cappadocia

From the flag we looked down upon Aktepe Hill which is known as a popular destination for watching the sun set and could spot Kizilvadi Restaurant, our destination for lunch! Kizilvadi Restaurant is an attraction of its own. With its own historic winery and Grape church, plus some Middle Earth Travel treks even stay there for the night! After having a massive feed of soup, salad and pasta plus a surprise birthday cake, we made our way down into Gulludere Rose Valley.

The scenery is amazing, with strong colours visible in perfect layers on the chimneys, you would wonder what an artist was thinking, had it been a painting. Also, hidden to the side of the track we walked across a little bridge and not expecting anything to be there we were wowed by the massive church carved. It was absolutely huge and hard to believe that its most recent use has been as a pigeon house!

Middle Earth Travel Review

  • The team at Middle Earth Travel were extremely knowledgeable and certainly know Cappadocia’s hidden secrets. They have friendships with local tea garden owners which is also of benefit as it gained us entry to locked churches and hidden rooms that we would not have otherwise seen.
  • We covered a lot of ground, however we did not feel rushed. The whole day focused on showing us the region, therefore we had as much time as we needed to explore each church and to take ‘just one more photo’.
  • It wasn’t all about trekking. With a whole day and 15kms to cover, there were a few silly poses (especially in Imagine Valley), and we learnt a lot about the myths, legends and way of life in Cappadocia.
  • In conclusion I highly recommend Middle Earth Travel if you wish to go trekking or mountain biking in Cappadocia.
  • Cost: Day treks with Middle Earth Travel range from 50-90 euro, depending on the number of people taking part. This includes lunch, guide, vehicle transfers and entrance fees to historical sites, but excludes alcoholic and soft drinks.
  • Middle Earth Travel are outdoor enthusiasts and offer multi-day over night treks, mountain biking, abseiling, or custom made itineraries, in multiple regions throughout Turkey.

Amsterdam Food Guide

If you think of Amsterdam you don’t think of food. However if you try the food here in our Amsterdam food guide you might get lucky.

Amsterdam Food Waffles

We are total foodies and our travelling has allowed our passion for food to grow considerably (not to mention our waist lines)!  We love trying new food when we visit foreign countries and always make a huge effort to eat the local cuisine. Check out some of the food we ate below in our cheap and delicious Amsterdam Food Guide.

Amsterdam Food Waffles

We had heard from a number of people that the Amsterdam food was nothing to rave about. To be honest food was not really our main interest in visiting but then again neither was an Amsterdam Peep show and we ended up enjoying that!

However we were pleasantly surprised. I think the people whom we had talked to had it wrong. Sure Holland doesn’t really have a local cuisine but once we got over this fact we realised there is still some damn good food to be had from the various Amsterdam Restaurants.

Amsterdam Food

The best meal we had was actually next door to the Red Light district in Chinatown. Crossing the canal to the east away from the neon lights your nostrils are attacked and your mouth begins salivating from the delicious smells wafting along the narrow cobbled streets.

As we walked into Bird Thai restaurant the enticing aroma hit us instantly leaving us drooling in anticipation. It was definitely up there with some of the best Thai food we have had. We went for the classic Green curry, fried rice and duck combo.

The Green curry was so flavoursome with the richness of the coconut milk blending perfectly with the traditional spices.  The duck was cooked to perfection and for the first few minutes of the meal all you could hear was the crunching of the crispy outside layer as we devoured the duck in minutes. Needless to say the fried rice was a taste explosion too!

Cheap and delicious Amsterdam food is easy to come by. With hangovers and munchies affecting your hunger it is no surprise that there are an abundance of Fast Food chains and takeaways in Amsterdam. In fact it was actually more the way that the fast food was served that surprised us as you could buy it out of massive vending machines at Febo!

Amsterdam Food Febo

Hidden workers stand behind the vending machines churning out burgers, fries and sausage rolls so all you has to do is insert a Euro and “hey presto” you have a hot meal in your hungry hands.

Then there were the frites stores which seemed to be on every corner. The first thing you noticed about these was the tantalising smell. There is nothing like the smell of chips straight out of the fryer and covered in salt to get you tummy rumbling. Served in a triangle cardboard carton and covered in mayo which meant that that you couldn’t reach the chips at the bottom without covering your greedy fingers in sauce. Just a tad annoying!

But there is nothing like hot chips to warm you up on a cold day.

Finally, while hot chocolates are not typically food I feel they still deserve a mention especially because the usually come paired with waffles! Ahhhh the perfect breakfast.

Amsterdam Hot Chocolate

We loved nipping into a cafe or bar like Cafe Bar Eddy in Amsterdam to warm ourselves up with a hot chocolate. It literally tasted like they had melted chocolate down and added cream. Heaven in a cup. And the choice of waffles was daunting as you could have whatever you wanted. Fruit, chocolate, syrups, cream or all of the above!

If you are heading here then don’t expect to find an array of traditional Amsterdam food. Instead treat yourself to a hot chocolate and waffle for breakfast, grab a quick bite from a vending machine and sample some of the different cuisines found near the Red Light District.

If you stick to this Amsterdam food guide then your taste buds will have a great holiday too!

If you have visited before then what did you think of Amsterdam food?

How to smoke weed in Amsterdam

Check out our guide for the first timer in Amsterdam visiting a coffeeshop.

Published

on

How to smoke weed in Amsterdam

Before getting started I just want to clarify that we are not drug users. We don’t condone using illegal drugs. And we are not telling you to go and smoke weed in Amsterdam. BUT, our goal of this travel blog is to help advise, educate and provide travel tips for ALL situations. So if you are headed to Amsterdam then we hope our guide to smoking weed in Amsterdam will help you out.

And check out this smoker friendly accommodation for your next trip.

How to smoke weed in Amsterdam Coffeeshop

When you tell people that you are visiting Amsterdam then they immediately think of one thing and one thing only. Weed. Dope. Herb. Buds. Spliff. Whacky Tobbacky. Pot. Marijuana. Cannabis. 

Call it what you will but just know that the biggest name for it is “ILLEGAL”.

Yes it is actually illegal to smoke weed in Amsterdam. But for now the Netherlands government do tolerate smoking in designated “coffeeshops”. This is slowly changing as the Government tries to moderate the tourism drug trade and in 2013 there will be new laws which we won’t go in to now as they are continuously changing.

In the meantime if you obey the rules, are not a moron and use our guide to smoking weed in Amsterdam then you are going to be fine.

Smoke weed in Amsterdam

How to smoke weed in Amsterdam

Don’t smoke weed in Amsterdam in public such as on the streets. There are over 300 designated coffee shops where you are tolerated to smoke weed. These places are regulated and everything is done in the open.

Don’t get confused and try to smoke in a koffiehuis (coffee house) which sells coffee and light meals or a café that is a casual restaurant and/or bar.

The coffeeshops are super easy to spot with marijuana leaves in the windows and Bob Marley paintings on the doors. Not to mention the smell wafting through the cold breeze. There will also be the usual tourists that have stupidly over-indulged and are glassy eyed.

We visited one of the five Bulldog coffeeshops when we were in Amsterdam and had no complaints. We even enjoyed a delicious hot chocolate while we were there!

Bulldog Coffeeshop in Amsterdam

Buying weed in Amsterdam

As long as you are over 18 then you will be allowed to buy up to 5 grams of weed in the regulated coffeeshops. Plus you have the added security knowing that your marijuana is not going to be laced with anything else if you are attempting to buy it off someone on the street. And who knows, they might be setting you up to get busted.

We were (and are) total amateurs and had no idea what to do once we actually stepped foot in the coffeeshop. But quickly sussed it out. There will generally be a “dealer bar” with full menu’s and everything for you to choose. So if you are an expert you will probably know what to order! Prices will of course vary by quantity (grams, bags, individual joints) and quality.

For a beginner ask lots of questions. Don’t be shy like we were. Ask the staff what they recommend and what effects each type has. They will know then that you are a newbie and will guide you. Just know that they are very accustomed to tourists who don’t know exactly how to go about the whole process.

What we found out is that it is actually perfectly fine for you to visit other coffeeshops and smoke weed that you have already purchased somewhere else. However, it is considered rude not to at least buy a hot chocolate or coffee if you do this. Coffeeshops do also have some of the best coffee in Amsterdam.

How to smoke weed in Amsterdam

Don’t be an idiot

Number 1 rule: Don’t smoke too much weed in Amsterdam! Even if you are a pot loving hippie from a commune you are probably going to find the marijuana really strong in Amsterdam. Just take it slow.

If you are enjoying a drink as well then again take it easy with the booze. All the coffeshops won’t sell you beer as well as cannabis.

EAT! Don’t go drinking and smoking on an empty stomach as cannabis lowers your blood sugar level and this can turn a fun day into a disaster if you haven’t eaten recently. Check out our Amsterdam Food Guide for some quick eating tips here.

A final word of warning, please watch out for the spacecake! Eating cannabis will knock you on your ass and is much stronger than when smoked.

Finally, enjoy yourselves and for goodness sake obey the rules, laws and customs while you are smoking weed in Amsterdam.

If you have an addiction to drugs then reach out and seek some help.
