When in a new city, it is always a tradition to do touristy things. Exploring the various attractions and learning more about the local culture shows how exactly big the world is. But why go for a typical approach when you are soaking in all the knowledge? Instead of a bus, or a tour cab why not travel on foot?

The charming European city of Oslo is well known for its architecture and history. However cramped up, in a bus with other tourists is most often not a pleasant experience. For first time visitors, taking this Oslo trip on foot will most definitely showcase the city in a new light.
