Kadir, Anna and Klára visit Oslo in the summer to take part in Oslo Pride – Norway’s biggest and proudest celebration of love, freedom, and diversity. Oslo Pride was arranged for the first time in 1974, and although the event has changed a lot in the years that have passed - with concerts, art exhibits, shows, film screenings, parties and debates - the message has remained the same, be proud. Music: Amanda Delara - We Don't Run From Anyone ABOUT OSLO PRIDE Norway’s largest LGBTQ+ festival, with concerts, art exhibits, shows, film screenings, parties, and debates. Oslo Pride consists of more than 150 small and large events over the course of ten days in June/July. In 2018, half of Oslo’s population joined the celebrations during the Oslo Pride Parade. PROUD FACTS Norway was among the first countries to enact anti-discrimination laws against gays and lesbians, and most Norwegians have a liberal attitude towards LGBTQ+ people. In fact, Norway ranks as third best in the ILGA-Europe 2018 rating of 49 European countries: https://rainbow-europe.org/country-ranking CREDITS Video: Visit Norway/VisitOSLO & Oslo Brand Partners/Oslo Pride and FRI/Bleed/Trigger/Løvik/Havstein

Oslo's most popular toboggan run is an adrenaline filled sled ride called Korketrekkeren (the cork screw) that starts at Frognerseteren and ends at Midtstuen metro station. At the end of a run, you can take a 16-minute metro ride back up to Frognerseteren for another go. Korktrekkeren is 2,000 metres long, and the elevation drop is 255 metres. One non-stop ride takes 8–10 minutes, althoug the pros do it in just 2! Note: Korketrekkeren is only open when there is enough snow in the area. Getting there: Take the metro line 1 from the city to Frognerseteren. This is a scenic metro ride so have your camera ready. Sled and equipment rental: Riding in Korketrekkeren is free, but sled rental costs 100–150 NOK per day. You can also bring your own sled. Akeforeningen, located down the hill from the Frognerseteren metro stop, has sleds for rent as well as sledding classes. Skiservice has sleds and equipment for rent from its office across the street from Frognerseteren Café.

The waffle is a staple of the Norwegian diet, but has never been among the traditional street foods. That was until Jonathan started selling them from his apartment window in Oslo, and pretty soon his unconventional recipes had made the waffle cool again 😀 When looking for things to do, or eat, in Oslo a visit to Harald's Vaffel (named after King Harald obviously) is a must. Not just for the foodie, but the Norwegian waffle is actually a huge part of our food culture. Have a waffle with brown cheese and you've covered two huge Norwegian delicacies in one go. Try them at Haralds Vaffel in Torggata. Video by Mohri Films for Visit OSLO.

Sauna culture is making an urban comeback in Oslo. Floating saunas, saunas on land, and saunas in large barrels. Many of them are conveniently located along the harbour promenade with views to the Oslo Opera House. They are open all year round, which means you don't have to be an ice bather to enjoy them because Norwegian summers are quite warm. Although to be a real sauna champion you have to swim in water chilled with ice cubes. Explore Oslo's sauna scene: https://www.visitoslo.com/en/articles/saunas-by-the-oslo-fjord/ Video by Mohri Films for Visit OSLO.

Oslo is cool. A wintertime visit is no exception. Oslo's closeness to fjords and nature means that you can go from urban to nature, from slopes to cocktails, and from snowballs to meatballs within a short ride on the metro. That means that you will not run out of things to do in Oslo. We promise. If you're no skier try sledding down the 2 km toboggan run Korketrekkeren (yes, the metro is your ride back up to the top). If you're not the snowy type a sauna might be more your cup of tea (ice bathing optional). Oslo has got food and museums too if you want to stay inside, away from the white fluffy stuff. It's all pretty cool, but don't take our word for it. Whatch what happened when we invited 10 people from all over the world to give Oslo a try.

Meet Erlend, a real sausage enthusiast, the master of hotdogs in Oslo, and owner of Syverkiosken. A visit to Oslo is not complete without "pølse i lompe", or hotdog in a wrap. The pølse i lompe is a central part of the Norwegian diet, yet few hotdog stands remain. In fact there's only one left in central Oslo. It might also be the cheapest street food in Oslo. Erlend's dedication and respect for the hotdog trade shows that "gourmet" comes in many forms. Learn more about pølse, lompe and Syverkiosken: https://bit.ly/2oa2Zs1 Among Norwegian street foods few are as popular as the sausage, especially the wiener sausage. And the best way to bring out the flavour of the sausage is to serve it in a lompe, which is a wrap made from potatoes. Video by Mohri Films for Visit OSLO
