Meet your guide outside the Chocolate Store called Freia on Carl Johan Street, for your walk around the city’s culinary haunts and hotspots. The city’s cuisine has a strong maritime theme and is now a foodie hot spot thanks to what’s known as New Nordic cuisine — food that revolves around nature, purity, freshness and simplicity.
Next, enjoy a peaceful walk in the city and together with the guide explore some of those hidden corners of Oslo that you might have a hard time finding. The guide will give you a taste of Norwegian typical dessert and together will walk along towards our food market.
Walk to some the city’s lesser-known areas and head for Mathallen, a covered market stuffed with food stands selling Norwegian and international produce. Enjoy some dishes aplenty as you browse the stalls, including rich local cheese made by small-scale producers. Pause at the raw food specialist Bondens Butikk to try Norwegian cured meat.Price: 1080 NOK/104 EUR | Children age 3-17: 900 NOK/87 EUR
