Boutique hotels in Oslo

by | Luxury city breaks

With beautiful Scandinavian forests surrounding the city, and views across the iconic Oslo Fjord and rolling hills beyond, Oslo is a magical place to visit.

Norway’s capital offers mesmerising architecture, ample museums and a diverse selection of excellent cafes, restaurants, and bars. Plus, the unique luxury boutique hotels in Oslo are some of the most charming places to stay in the world.

Around a 30-minute walk from the centre of Oslo is the ethereal Ekeburg Sculpture Park. A beautiful wooded park, where you can see a selection of incredible sculptures as well as panoramic views of the city, including works by artists such as Salvador Dali, Renoir and Damien Hirst. It’s also where Munch found his inspiration for The Scream – which you can see in Oslo’s National Gallery, home to Norway’s biggest collection of art and another attraction that should be high on your itinerary when you visit.

Designed to look like a glacier rising from the fjord, Oslo Opera House is an architectural marvel and one of Oslo’s most iconic buildings. Whether you get tickets for the opera or ballet or simply take in the Opera House from afar, it’s another must see.

There are more museums, galleries, and attractions in Oslo, plenty to keep you occupied and entertained throughout your stay, but arguably the biggest star of Oslo is its surrounding nature.

The vast Oslo Fjord spans 100km south from the city and it’s a sight you’ll want to drink in for as long as possible, whatever the season you decide to go. There are also hiking trails into the nearby forests and woodlands to explore too.

When you’re ready to sample some of Oslo’s food and drink head to Aker Brygge, known for its pier and strip of restaurants along the boardwalk. Eateries with outdoor tables serve upscale Nordic and French cuisine, as well as more casual options too. And when you’re refreshed and ready you can visit the nearby Nobel Peace Center and the striking Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art.

With so much to see and do having a relaxing hideaway retreat is essential. You’ll find the Wild Bay Co list of the best luxury boutique hotels in Oslo below to help inspire you.
