Eastern Norway

Ambitious architects and young chefs are taking Oslo to new heights. If that doesn’t make you dizzy enough, try hiking to Galdhøpiggen, Norway’s highest peak at 2469 meters above sea level.

Like much of Norway, the eastern part of the country is a region of contrasts. On the one hand you have Oslo, the fastest-growing capital in Europe. Known for its vibrant culture, its many new and prestigious buildings, exciting foods, and a living arts and music scene.

The northern and western parts of the region, however, are dominated by mountains and glaciers. To the east, you have a cluster of picturesque small towns near the Swedish border.

More than half of Norway’s population lives in Eastern Norway, and Oslo is Norway’s main hub for travel both internationally and domestically. The network of roads, railway lines and domestic flights all extend fan-like from here, making the region the natural starting point for your Norwegian holiday

Things to do

In Eastern Norway, coastal towns offer idyllic seaside peace or urban city vibes, while the inland mountains and valleys offer world-class skiing, hiking and biking. It just depends on when and where you prefer to visit.

Eastern Norway is the region where you’ll find Oslo, the country’s capital and unquestionably most cosmopolitan city. Here, you can enjoy life at a Michelin-starred restaurant, catch an opera or ballet performance, see Munch’s famous “Scream” or the world’s best-preserved Viking ships, to mention but a few possibilities.

Oslo is also a city that is growing and changing at a rapid pace. Massive architecturally ambitious city development projects are transforming the city into a state-of-the-art modern metropolis.

You don’t have to go far from Oslo to find excellent skiing of all types in the winter, and if you prefer summer activities, how about trying one of the capital’s many festivals, covering subjects from rock ‘n’ roll to international film?

Oslo’s own food hall Mathallen offers ingredients and dishes from all over Norway and beyond, should you miss one of the festivals dedicated to various types of food and drink, and the many excellent eateries in the city are sure to be a high point of any self-respecting foodie’s holiday. 

And speaking of high points, Norway’s highest mountain is Galdhøpiggen at 2469 metres above sea level. It lies in the western part of Eastern Norway and is accessible for most able-footed visitors. Just remember to join a guided glacier hike to get there, for safety’s sake.
