Catch some sun on the mountaintops
Catching sunshine during Easter is considered a healing experience! The sunbeams are gentle, and a stroll around the city can help recharge your batteries. Of course, in Oslo, you must do it the Nordic style, hiking to the mountaintops and soaking up some sun.
It may sound great to escape to the mountaintops, but during Easter, it roots back to the ancient belief that the sun behaved unusually on Easter Day in the joy of Jesus' resurrection. Naturally, people queue up to experience the healing power of the sun on Easter morning – something you may want to add to your bucket list too!
Enjoy folk music and jazz
Just before the festival week, you can look forward to enjoying some jazz and folk music. The city hosts the Voss Jazz Festival typically before Easter week. Plus, one can enjoy weighty metal groups at the Inferno Metal Festival during Easter. Isn't it a fantastic urban way to celebrate Easter with good food, music, and sweet sunshine?

Make your vacation memorable with Easter food traditions. Get ready to sample rakfisk (a fermented fish dish made from fresh trout), lamb preparations, egg-based dishes, and delicious Easter desserts at some of the coolest restaurants in Oslo.
