My City Guide: Oslo in 48 Hours

If you ever get chance to explore Scandinavia, you’ve got to go by train. Not only is it a really inexpensive and easy way to travel, but it’s an amazing opportunity to see the landscape. We added Oslo to our Scandinavian tour as our third and final option and boy was that a great decision – especially when we’d been toying with the idea of going to Helsinki instead.

We arrived in Oslo via the 5-hour high-speed train from Stockholm and checked into the Comfort Xpress. The hotel was quirky and modern, and in a great location; it was the perfect choice. Once we’d dropped our suitcases and freshened up, we ventured out to explore nearby and grab some food.
