What to Expect
Meet your guide and the rest of your group in downtown Oslo. Before embarking upon your tasting tour, there's time for a visit to a traditional Norwegian clothing (bunad) shop to learn about Norwegian apparel and traditions. Your tour continues to three or four different stops, tasting food at each, including cheese, fish, and a traditional waffle-and-brown-cheese dessert at a small coffee shop. You also have the opportunity to sample some local Norwegian beers at a cozy bar, as well as a taste of aquavit, a strong, flavored Scandinavian spirit. With a full belly (and some insider foodie tips from your guide), your tour concludes in the city center.

We had a great time and really enjoyed tasting real food of Norway! Met some cool people and it was a great afternoon. We ended at a food market in a really artsy area and spent some time there. Lots of brisk walking to walk off the food so I recommend that you are up for it
