Make a self catering cabin or holiday rental in East Norway your home away from home

East Norway has two main attractions – the capital city of Oslo and the tall mountains in the Jotunheiman National Park. Almost half of Norway's population live in this region as it is far less mountainous than the rugged west coast. The area is mostly covered in forest making it very scenic. Oslo is a widespread modern city with interesting touches of history. Visitors can stay in log cabins or city apartments in East Norway and will enjoy visiting the historic Stave churches, museums, castles and Viking history in the area. Other natural sights are the colourful Aurora Borealis and the long summer days in this Land of the Midnight Sun.

Things to Do in East Norway Outdoor Activities

East Norway offers plenty of things to do for those who enjoy the outdoor life. In the winter, skiing, sledging, snowmobiling and other fun sports take advantage of the guaranteed snow around your East Norway holiday home. In the summer the area is perfect for hiking in the forest, fishing, mountain biking, golfing, hunting and swimming in the fjords.

Shopping

Oslo is an excellent shopping centre, although it is not cheap, but visitors can benefit from tax-free shopping offered in larger stores. Knitted sweaters, watches, jewellery and local food are some of the best buys to take home from East Norway.

Cruises

Cruising along the fjords of Norway is a very popular activity. Oslo lies at the head of the 70-mile long Oslofjord. A short cruise is the perfect way to see remote settlements along the fjords, killer whales, birds and other wildlife, along with spectacular waterfalls and wonderful scenery.

Places to Visit Around East Norway Royal Palace, Oslo

The lovely buildings of the Royal Palace can be found at the top of Karl Johans Gate. Built in 1824, the palace is open to the public in the summer with guided tours. The palace park has lovely lakes and statutes and the changing of the guards can be seen daily at 1.30pm.

Viking Ship Museum

Three Viking burial ships dating back to the 9th century were discovered in royal burials grounds on farmland near Oslofjord. They had been   preserved in the blue clay that surrounded them. These historic Viking longboats are now on display along with some of the artifacts which were buried with them.

Akershus Fortress

Akershus Fortress is one of the oldest and finest cultural sites in Norway. It has been the seat of kings and the centre of government for centuries. The buildings are over 700 years old and are a local landmark which must be visited from your East Norway holiday accommodation, along with the City Hall nearby.

Weather in East Norway

East Norway, like much of Scandinavia, has long cold winters with average temperatures for several months below freezing. Average temperatures rise to 19°C (66°F) in July

Travel to East Norway

Oslo Airport (OSL) at Gardermoen is 37km north of the centre of the city and is the main airport serving the area of East Norway. It has many flights daily from all over Europe   and worldwide. East Norway can also be reached by ferry, train or cruise ship.

We had a very cozy holiday i this well furnished skicabin. The room distribution was fine and we had enough space for everybody. We brought childrens beds and high chairs for the children our selves, but it would of course be nice, if it was a part of the interior.
